We are organizing this workshop with the goal to pull together social network researchers from various backgrounds and share past experiences, ongoing research ideas, and future directions. In recent years propelled by the huge popularity, online social networks are becoming the medium for people to not only stay connected, but also share many forms of information (e.g., memos, photos, videos) and initiate new activities. Faced with this unprecedented prevalence of online social networks in our daily lives we review challenges that lie ahead and, in particular, impacts on Future Internet design and propose to organize the workshop under the following four themes: The workshop is supported by the Korea-France STAR project. Within the Framework Programme 7 ICT-2011.1.1 Future Networks, a new project European InterNet Science (EINS) is emerging. We are using this workshop as an opportunity to brainstorm for the project. This workshop is invitation-only, but we could accommodate a small number of researchers upon space availability. Please email the organizers if you are interested in participation. The workshop will take place in Annecy in the North of the French Alps. Annecy is called the Venice of Savoie -- a well deserved title. The medieval town centre built around a 14th Century Chateau is dissected by small canals and streams running out of Lac Annecy, which is clean, fresh and a wonderful azure colour. Annecy is also the prefecture of the departement of Haute-Savoie. (an image and texts From Wikitravel)
