Large-scale Graph Processing: Applications, Challenges, and Advances

Graph data are key parts of Big Data and widely used for modelling complex structured data with a broad spectrum of applications. Over the last decade, tremendous research efforts have been devoted to many fundamental problems in managing and analysing graph data.  In this talk, I will cover various applications, challenges, and our recent advances in graph matching, cohesive subgraph mining, etc. We will also look into the future of the area. 



Xuemin Lin is a UNSW distinguished Professor - Scientia Professor, and the head of data and knowledge research group in the school of computer science and engineering at UNSW.  Xuemin is a distinguished visiting Professor at Tsinghua University and visiting Chair Professor at Fudan University.  He is a fellow of IEEE. Xuemin's research interests lie in databases, data mining, algorithms, and complexities. Specifically, he is working in the areas of scalable processing and mining of large scale data, including graph, spatial-temporal, streaming, text and uncertain data.   

Xuemin currently serves as the editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (Jan 2017 - now). He was an associate editor of ACM Transactions Database Systems (2008-2014) and  IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering  (Feb 2013- Jan 2015), and an associate editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (2015-2016), respectively.  He has been regularly serving as a PC member and area chairs/SPC  in SIGMOD, VLDB, ICDE, ICDM, KDD, CIKM, and EDBT. He is a PC-chair of ICDE2019 and VLDB2022.
