Algorithm for detecting and visualizing communities in on-line social networks

Visualizing communities and the interactions between them is an important part of the social network analysis process, which is limited by computational and representational capabilities of the today computers. A basic component of this visual model is the interaction with the user.

The goals of this project are:

  • Develop a visual model to identify communities and their interactions
  • Take into account elements from the HCI discipline to improve the model
