#### Fifth International Workshop on ## High Performance Big Graph Data ## Management, Analysis, and Mining **December 10, 2018** To be held in conjunction with the [2018 IEEE International Conference on Big Data **(IEEE BigData 2018)**](https://cci.drexel.edu/bigdata/bigdata2018/) [The Westin Seattle](https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/events/start.action?id=1807314892&key=2E9AFC3E), Seattle, WA, USA ### Workshop Description Modern Big Data increasingly appears in the form of complex graphs and networks. Examples include the physical Internet, the world wide web, online social networks, phone networks, and biological networks. In addition to their massive sizes, these graphs are dynamic, noisy, and sometimes transient. They also conform to all five Vs (Volume, Velocity, Variety, Value and Veracity) that define Big Data. However, many graph-related problems are computationally difficult, and thus big graph data brings unique challenges, as well as numerous opportunities for researchers, to solve various problems that are significant to our communities. Big graph problems are currently solved using several complementary paradigms. The most popular approach is perhaps by exploiting parallelism, through specialized algorithms for supercomputers, shared-memory multicore and manycore systems, and heterogeneous CPU-GPU systems. However, since real-world graphs are sparse and highly irregular, there are very few parallel implementations that can actually deliver high performance. The major challenges to scaling and efficiency include irregular data dependencies, poor locality, and high synchronization costs of current approaches. In addition to parallelism, researchers are developing approximation algorithms that use sampling for compressing and summarizing graph data. Streaming algorithms are also being considered for scenarios where the rate of updates is too fast to process the entire graph in a single pass. Further, out-of-core algorithms are necessary for massive graphs that do not fit in the main memory of a typical system. Researchers can use graph-based solutions for solving problems from many diverse disciplines, including routing and transportation, social networks, bioinformatics, computational science, health care, security and intelligence analysis. This workshop aims to bring together researchers from different paradigms solving big graph problems under a unified platform for sharing their work and exchanging ideas. We are soliciting novel and original research contributions related to big graph data management, analysis, and mining (algorithms, software systems, applications, best practices, performance). Significant work-in-progress papers are also encouraged. Papers can be from any of the following areas, including but not limited to: * Parallel algorithms for big graph analysis on HPC systems * Heterogeneous CPU-GPU solutions to solve big graph problems * Extreme-scale computing for large graph, tensor, and network problems * Sampling and summarization of large graphs * Graph algorithms for large-scale scientific computing problems * Graph clustering, partitioning, and classification methods * Scalable graph topology measurement: diameter approximation, eigenvalues, triangle and graphlet counting * Parallel algorithms for computing graph kernels * Inference on large graph data * Graph evolution and dynamic graph models * Graph streams * Representation Learning for graph data * Computational methods for visualization of large-scale graphs * Deep Learning based models for learning on graph data * Graph databases, novel querying and indexing strategies for RDF data * Novel applications of big graph problems in bioinformatics, health care, security, and social networks * New software systems and runtime systems for big graph data mining **Regular paper** submissions must be at most 10 pages long, including all figures, tables, and references. They must be formatted according to the style files used by the [IEEE BigData 2018 conference proceedings](http://cci.drexel.edu/bigdata/bigdata2018/CallPapers.html). Additionally, we encourage **short paper** submissions (at most 6 pages) describing new work in progress. ### Past Workshops [BigGraphs 2014](workshop2014.html) [BigGraphs 2015](workshop2015.html) [BigGraphs 2016](workshop2016.html) [BigGraphs 2017](workshop2017.html) ### Important Dates * Oct 19, 2018 (11.59 pm Pacific time): [Submission](https://wi-lab.com/cyberchair/2018/bigdata18/scripts/submit.php?subarea=S20&undisplay_detail=1&wh=/cyberchair/2018/bigdata18/scripts/ws_submit.php) deadline * Nov 7, 2018: Notification of paper acceptance to authors * Nov 18, 2018: Camera-ready submissions due * Dec 10, 2018: Workshop date ### Keynote **[Jennifer Neville](https://www.cs.purdue.edu/homes/neville/)** ![Jennifer Neville](neville.jpg "Jennifer Neville") Purdue University Talk title: **Deep Learning for Relational Networks** Abstract: Although deep learning methods have been successfully applied in structured domains comprised of images and natural language, it is difficult to apply the methods directly to graph and network domains due to issues of heterogeneity and long range dependence. In this talk, I will discuss some of our recent work developing neural network methods for complex network domains, including node classification, knowledge graph embeddings, and motif prediction. The key insights include incorporating network dependencies in both the input features and the model architectures, using randomization to transform heterogeneous sets into sequences, and using network-aware data augmentation to offset sparsity. Our experiments on real work social network data shows that our methods produces significant gains compared to other state-of-the-art methods.
