Call for Papers

Data generating at a high velocity needs to be processed at high speed. Holding back high velocity data would burst out of memory. Stream processing ceaselessly manipulates high velocity data, while maintaining the latest results. Ergo, stream processing is an exemplary way of processing high velocity data. It is one of the major challenges of data mining community to learn from changing and evolving nature of high velocity streams in real-time.

Mobile data networks are a rich source of high velocity data streams. Scalability is one of the primary issues when grasping such high velocity network streams. One of the techniques used to handle this issue in network streams is using graphs.  Graph data structures provide pre-materialised relationships, which serves as an ideal approach for analysing high velocity network streams. Consequently, high velocity network streams are processed as graph streams. Some examples of mobile network streams include call graphs, social networks, mobile sensor networks, event log files and traffic mobility data.

Owing to the importance of applications of this area, mining high velocity data streams has attracted great attention recently. To extract real-time insights from such data, there are various stream mining platforms such as Waikato’s MOA, Twitter’s Storm, Berkeley’s Shark, LinkedIn’s Samsa, IBM’s Infosphere Streams, and SAS Enterprise Stream Processing.
