Call for Papers
Due to public health concerns in light of the unfolding COVID-19 outbreak. We will follow exactly the option that ACM SIGKDD and the KDD 2020 organizing committee will suggest and will follow the style that the KDD conference adopts. Please check this website regularly for updates.
This workshop is a forum for exchanging ideas and methods for mining and learning with graphs, developing new common understandings of the problems at hand, sharing of data sets where applicable, and leveraging existing knowledge from different disciplines. The goal is to bring together researchers from academia, industry, and government, to create a forum for discussing recent advances in graph analysis. In doing so, we aim to better understand the overarching principles and the limitations of our current methods and to inspire research on new algorithms and techniques for mining and learning with graphs.
To reflect the broad scope of work on mining and learning with graphs, we encourage submissions that span the spectrum from theoretical analysis to algorithms and implementation, to applications and empirical studies. As an example, the growth of user-generated content on blogs, microblogs, discussion forums, product reviews, etc., has given rise to a host of new opportunities for graph mining in the analysis of social media. We encourage submissions on theory, methods, and applications focusing on a broad range of graph-based approaches in various domains.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Computational or statistical learning theory related to graphs
Theoretical analysis of graph algorithms or models
Sampling and evaluation issues in graph algorithms
Analysis of dynamic graphs
Algorithms and methods:
Probabilistic and graphical models for structured data
Heterogeneous/multi-model graph analysis
Network embedding models
Statistical models of graph structure
Combinatorial graph methods
Semi-supervised learning, active learning, transductive inference, and transfer learning in the context of graph
Applications and analysis:
Analysis of social media
Analysis of biological networks
Knowledge graph construction
Large-scale analysis and modeling
We welcome many kinds of papers, such as, but not limited to:
Novel research papers
Visionary papers (white papers)
Appraisal papers of existing methods and tools (e.g., lessons learned)
Relevant work that has been previously published
Work that will be presented at the main conference
Authors should clearly indicate in their abstracts the kinds of submissions that the papers belong to, to help reviewers better understand their contributions.
All papers will be peer reviewed, single-blinded. Submissions must be in PDF, no more than 8 pages long — shorter papers are welcome — and formatted according to the standard double-column ACM Proceedings Style.
The accepted papers will be published on the workshop’s website and will not be considered archival for resubmission purposes.
Authors whose papers are accepted to the workshop will have the opportunity to participate in a spotlight and poster session, and some set will also be chosen for oral presentation.
