Subject: [bms-rc33] Meeting - Mining Attributed Networks Workshop @ WebConf2018
     (23 Apr, Lyon FR)

Thanks to Rushed Kanawati

MATNet'18: International workshop on Mining Attributed Networks @
WWW'2018 (The Web Conf 2018)
23 April 2018, Lyon France


Attributed network models have seen an increasing success in recent
years, thanks to their informative power and to their ability to model
complex networked relations that characterize most real-world phenomena.
Th eir use has been attractive to communities in different disciplines
such as computer science, physics, social science, as well as in
interdisciplinary research environments. The use of such models has been
also supported by the increasing easiness in collecting multi-relational
data from the Web, e.g., from online social media platforms,
crowdsourced data, online knowledge base. Within this view, the World
Wide Web is an inestimable source of information, which can be
conveniently represented with feature-rich network models, e.g.,
enclosing temporal aspects of the data, quantitative and/or qualitative
properties of nodes, different relations between a common set of
entities, different existence probabilities, or modeling connection
between different entity types.

The aim of the MATNet workshop, that will be held in conjunction with
The Web Conf 2018 in Lyon, is to get an insight in the current status of
research in network analysis and mining, showi ng how modeling
information coming from the World Wide Web in Attributed Network models
can make it possible to focus on domains and research questions that
have not been deeply investigated so far and to improve solutions to
classic tasks. We will solicit contributions that aim to focus on the
analysis of attributed networks, addressing important principles,
methods, tools and future research directions in this emerging field,
possibly being  transversal to different application domains. In
particular, we cover the modeling of complex networks, multiplex
networks, and any unsupervised, supervised, and semi-supervised mining
approach in attributed network contexts.
