Keynote Title: Triaxiality theoretical model of Online Social Network and its implementation

I will discuss the triaxiality theoretical model of Online Social Network from three dimensions of users (subject), communities (carrier) and the information (object), presenting an association model that integrates technologies of these three aspects, including users analysis, community discovery and information spreading analysis. Based on this theoretical model, a self-developed public opinion analysis system, named YHPOS, will be introduced to demonstrate the actual applied performances and effects of aforementioned technologies. I will also share some opinions on trends and challenges of online social network analysis technology.
