About the Event
Objects in the real world are interconnected, often forming complex heterogeneous but semi-structured information networks. Different from some studies on social network analysis where friendship networks or web page networks form homogeneous information networks, heterogeneous information network reflect complex and structured relationships among multiple typed objects. For example, in a university network, objects of multiple types, such as students, professors, courses, departments, and multiple typed relationships, such as teach and advise are intertwined together, providing rich information.
Jiawei Han is the Abel Bliss Professor of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has been researching into data mining, information network analysis, database systems, and data warehousing, with over 600 journal and conference publications. He has served as a member or co-chair on the program committees for most major international conferences in the fields of data mining and database systems. He also served as the founding Editor-In-Chief of ACM Transactions on Knowledge Discovery from Data and is serving as the Director of Information Network Academic Research Center supported by U.S. Army Research Lab. He is a Fellow of ACM and Fellow of IEEE, and received 2004 ACM SIGKDD Innovations Award, 2005 IEEE Computer Society Technical Achievement Award, 2009 IEEE Computer Society Wallace McDowell Award, and 2011 Daniel C. Drucker Eminent Faculty Award at UIUC. His book "Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques" has been used popularly as a textbook worldwide.
