Social networks on the Web are growing rapidly and offer a fertile ground for data mining and analysis. So many social networks flourish in an unforeseen manner and social data are evolving from various social streams. Such data embed human interactions and interests and their analysis is valuable for detecting trends, events and phenomena on today's Web reality. Methodologies and techniques of information retrieval, databases, preference modeling, graph theory, etc. have been leveraged and adapted into the social web dynamic environment but still open questions remain in terms of introducing new methodologies which will facilitate trend detection. The workshop addresses these issues by providing a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss the social data analytics relevant topics with emphasis on the critical actors in emerging online social networks. The workshop aims at taking up the topics of the main WISE conference (such as Web Data Models, Web Information Retrieval, Web Metrics and Performance, Web Mining and Web Warehousing, Web Monitoring and Management, etc) and specializing them on the issues relevant to trend detection. Trend detection is vital in today's societies, academia and industries since major applications can rely on them (recommendations, content outsourcing, policy making, advertising etc).
