Recent research in machine learning and statistics has seen the proliferation of computational methods for analyzing networks and learning with graphs. These methods support progress in many application areas, including the social sciences, biology, medicine, neuroscience, physics, finance, and economics.
The primary goal of the workshop is to actively promote a concerted effort to address statistical, methodological and computational issues that arise when modeling and analyzing large collection of data that are largely represented as static and/or dynamic graphs. To this end, we aim at bringing together researchers from applied disciplines such as sociology, economics, medicine and biology, together with researchers from more theoretical disciplines such as mathematics and physics, within our community of statisticians and computer scientists. Different communities use diverse ideas and mathematical tools; our goal is to to foster cross-disciplinary collaborations and intellectual exchange.
Presentations will include novel graph models, the application of established models to new domains, theoretical and computational issues, limitations of current graph methods and directions for future research.
