Random Picks from ECML/PKDD 2010

I’m at the 2010 ECML/PKDD Conference in Barcelona, Spain; I’ll be presenting a paper (slides, paper) at the Workshop on Privacy and Security in Data Mining and Machine Learning (PSDML). Check out the real-time posts on twitter here.

Also, in a similar fashion to what Daniele did for CIKM 2010, here is a

completely arbitrary, title-biased pick of papers from the conference:

  • Demand Drive Tag Recommendation” by G.V. Menezes, J.M. Almeida, F. Belen, M.A. Goncalves, A. Lacerda, E.S. de Moura, G.L. Pappa, A. Veloso, N. Ziviani
  • Fast and Scalable Algorithms for Semi-Supervised Link Prediction on Static and Dynamic Graphs” by R. Raymond and H. Kashima
  • Collecting Traffic Forecasting” by M. Lippi, M. Bertini, P. Frasconi
  • Selecting Information Diffusion Models Over Social Networks for Behavioral Analysis” by K. Saito, M. Kimura, K. Ohara, H. Motoda
  • Finding Critical Nodes for Inhibiting Diffusion of Complex Contagions in Social Networks” by C.J. Kuhlman, V.S.A Kumar, M.V. Marathe, S.S. Ravi, D.J. Rosenkrantz
  • Analysis of Large Multi-Modal Social Networks: Patterns and a Generator” by N. Du, H. Wang, C. Faloutsos
  • Surprising Patterns for the Call Duration Distribution of Mobile Phone Users” by P.O.S. Vez de Melo, L. Akoglu, C. Faloutsos, A.A.F. Loureiro
  • Virus Propagation on Time-Varying Networks: Theory and Immunization Algorithms” by B.A. Prakash, H. Ton, N. Valler, M. Faloutsos, C. Faloutsos

The last four picks were, unsurprisingly, from the social-networks session.

Best Paper Awards:
