14th International Workshop on Mining and Learning with Graphs (MLG 2018)

August 20, 2018

London, UK (co-located with KDD 2018)

Submission Deadline:  May 8, 2018

Call for papers:

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 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:

Theoretical aspects:

Algorithms and methods:

Applications and analysis:

All papers will be peer reviewed, single-blinded. We welcome many kinds of papers, such as, but not limited to:

Authors should clearly indicate in their abstracts the kinds of submissions that the papers belong to, to help reviewers better understand their contributions. 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 and considered for $1,000 best paper award sponsored by Kyndi.


Submission Deadline: May 8, 2018

Notification: June 8, 2018

Final Version: June 28, 2018
