Spotlight Web Service is designed to detect community structures in a network. Community, in which vertices are joined tightly together, between which there are only looser edges, exists in many real networks. Detecting community in a network is a very important research topic, because it has many practical applications. For example, detecting communities can help us find out real social groupings in a social network, related papers on a single topic in a citation network, protein complexes in Protein-Protein Interaction network, and web pages on related topics in the World Wide Web.
