Data that are best represented as a graph such as social, biological,
communication, or transportation networks, and energy grids are ubiquitous
in our world today. As more of such structured and semi-structured data is
becoming available, the machine learning methods that can leverage the
signal in these data are becoming more valuable, and the importance of
being able to effectively mine and learn from such data is growing.

These graphs are typically multi-relational, dynamic, and large-scale.
Understanding the different techniques applicable to graph data, dealing
with their heterogeneity and applications of methods for information
integration and alignment, handling dynamic and changing graphs, and
addressing each of these issues at scale are some of the challenges in
developing machine learning methods for graph data that appear in a variety
of applications.

In this special issue, we aim to publish articles that help us better
understand the principles, limitations, and applications of current
graph-based machine learning methods, and to inspire research on new
algorithms, techniques, and domain analysis for machine learning with
graphs.

We encourage submissions on theory, methods, and applications focusing on a
broad range of graph-based machine learning approaches in various domains.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to theoretical aspects,
algorithms, and methods such as:
