WT3.4 – Workshop on Complex Network Mining and Analysis

Task Leader: Radosław Michalski, radoslaw.michalski@pwr.wroc.pl
ENGINE research areas: A2, B1-B6
Duration: 3-5 days
Estimated no. of participants: 30
No. of events: 1

The main goal of the Workshop on Complex Network Mining and Analysis is to pass to the ENGINE staff the basics and the recent advances in analysis of the complex networks, including social network analysis (SNA). As a result, the ENGINE members will arrange and increase their knowledge both about the crucial methods and approaches used to mine networked data, among others network measures, network models and representations, random networks, network modelling, collective classification, network comparison, large network processing, network evolution, link prediction, application areas, tools, case studies. The presentations, demonstrations and open discussions will cover wide and comprehensive range of topics within complex network analysis as well as their main application domains.

To achieve it, worldwide-known and recognizable speakers and lecturers will be invited. Five experts will be attracted and they will give 6 hours presentations/demonstrations/seminars each. It means that each of five days will consists of six hours of work plus catering (lunch).

Overall, the workshop is organized for the ENGINE staff, however, it will be open for a limited number of external participants, according to restrictions in the available budget. In particular, other researchers from collaborating companies, SMEs as well as regional and Polish research unites will be invited to make the ENGINE Centre a visible knowledge transfer hub in the domain of the complex network analysis.

The workshop will be free of charge for all participants, but their number will be limited.

Once the ENGINE project is finished, the workshop can be combined with other workshops (WT 3.5, WT 3.6) and transformed into periodical Summer School on Network Intelligence.
