The aim of this workshop called Advances in managing and mining large evolving graphs (LEG) is to bring together active scholars and practitioners of dynamic graphs. Graph models and algorithms are ubiquitous of a large number of application domains, ranging from transportation to social networks, semantic web, or data mining. However, many applications require graph models that are time dependent. For example, applications related to urban mobility analysis employ a graph structure of the underlying road network. Indeed, the nature of such networks are spatiotemporal. Therefore, the time a moving object takes to cross a path segment typically depends on the starting instant of time. So, we call time-dependent graphs, the graphs that have this spatiotemporal feature.

The workshop accepts two types of submissions:
  • Long papers (full research papers / ECML PKDD format). The maximum length of long papers is 15 pages.
  • Short papers of 2-4 pages (for work in progress)
Papers must be formatted and submitted according to LNCS Springer guidelines available on: http://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines .
The submission deadline is June 25, 2019 (Extended) for abstracts and for full papers, before 11:59 PM Pacific time.
Submissions should be made through EasyChair at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=legecmlpkdd2019.
We also invite the submission of 2-4 pages extended abstracts as highlight papers or late breaking research papers. Highlight papers should summarize full papers that have been published, or accepted for publication, between June 25, 2018 and the submission deadline.

Review Process

Papers will be subject to three (3) blind peer reviews. Selection criteria include originality of ideas, correctness, clarity and significance of results and quality of presentation.
Papers will be accepted for either oral or poster presentation. However, no distinction will be made between accepted papers in the workshop proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference, as well as the workshop to present the work. Authors will be required to agree to this requirement at the time of final submission.

Workshop Proceedings

Workshop proceedings will be published by Springer.
