Title: Graph Processing and Mining in the Era of Big Data
Abstract: With the emergence and rapid proliferation of applications that deal with big graphs, graph processing and mining has become increasingly prevalent and important in recent years. In this talk, I will first investigate the new challenges for graph processing and mining in the era of big data. To tackle these challenges, I will introduce the recent research developments in QCIS in terms of new graph query semantics, new graph mining tasks, new query processing algorithms, new graph indexing techniques, and new computing paradigms. Finally, I will show our current achievements in building a general-purpose graph processing and mining system in QCIS center, and discuss our potential future research directions.
