Best paper award on Social Network Systems to researchers at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
Social Network Systems
Farnaz Moradi, Dr. Tomas Olovsson and Professor Philippas Tsigas of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, garnered one of the awards for the best paper presented at the 2012 EuroSys, 5th Workshop on Social Network Systems (SNS ’12) held this year in Bern, Switzerland, for the paper "Towards Modeling Legitimate and Unsolicited Email Traffic Using Social Network Properties".
The finding that the paper discusses is that legitimate email traffic generates communication graphs with different properties than those generated by spam. This gives the opportunity to distinguish spammers from hammers the way that they send messages and not from the message content. This work is supported by The Internet Infrastructure Foundation (.SE).
The Best Paper Awards honor the author(s) of a paper of exceptional quality submitted to SNS 2012 workshop was sponsored by Google.
The EuroSys, Workshop on Social Network Systems is focused to cover novel ideas about computer systems and social networks. Online social networks are among the most popular sites on the Web and continue to grow rapidly. They provide mechanisms to establish identities, share information, and create relationships. The resulting social graphs provide a basis for communicating, distributing and locating content. SNS is sponsored by the SIGOPS ACM Special Interest Group on Operating Systems.
