WWW 2014 Workshop on Big Graph Mining Announced

BGM is a full-day workshop organized in conjunction with the
23rd International World Wide Web Conference (WWW) in Seoul, Korea on April 7.
Paper submission deadline is January 7, 2014.

* Organizers

Leman Akoglu, Stony Brook University
Polo Chau, Georgia Tech
Christos Faloutsos, Carnegie Mellon University

* Workshop Goals

We aim to bring together researchers and practitioners to address
various aspects of graph mining in this new era of big data, such as new
graph mining platforms, theories that drive new graph mining techniques,
scalable algorithms and visual analytics tools that spot patterns and anomalies,
applications that
touch our daily lives, and more. Together, we explore and discuss how
these important facets of are advancing in this age of big graphs.

* Topics of Interest include, but are not limited to

- Scalable graph mining, e.g., parallelized, distributed
- Heterogenous graph analysis
- Complex network analysis
- Graph mining platforms, libraries, and databases
- Interactive/human-in-the-loop graph mining
- Online graph mining algorithms
- Visual analytics and visualization of large graphs
- Analysis of streaming/dynamic/time-evolving graphs
- Machine learning on graphs
- Community detection
- Graph sampling
- Spectral graph analysis
- Social network analysis
- Biological network analysis
- Anomaly detection in graphs
- Active learning / mining
- Theoretical/complexity analysis of graph mining
- Demonstrations of graph mining applications
- Applications of graph mining methods on real-world problems

* Important Dates

Submission   : Fri, Jan 17, 2014 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
Acceptance   : Mon, Feb 3, 2014
Camera-ready : Mon, Feb 10, 2014
Workshop     : Mon, Apr 7, 2014

* Submission Information

We welcome many kinds of papers such as novel research papers, demo
papers, work-in-progress papers, and visionary (white) papers.
All papers will be peer reviewed, single-blinded.

Authors should clearly indicate in their abstracts the kinds of
submissions that the papers belong to, to help reviewers better
understand their contributions.

Submissions should be in PDF, written in English, with a maximum of 6 pages.
Shorter papers are welcome.
Format your paper using the standard double-column ACM Proceedings Style

Submit at EasyChair:

At least one author of an accepted paper must attend the workshop to present
the work. Accepted papers will be published through the ACM Digital Library

If you plan to extend your workshop paper submitted to our BGM'14 workshop,
and submit that extended work to future WWW conferences, please note the
following message from the workshop co-chairs:
"Any paper published by the ACM, IEEE, etc. which can be properly cited
constitutes research which must be considered in judging the novelty of
a WWW submission, whether the published paper was in a conference,
journal, or workshop. Therefore, any paper previously published as part
of a WWW workshop must be referenced and extended with new content to
qualify as a new submission to the Research Track at the WWW conference."
