                              CALL FOR PAPERS

   The International Workshop on Machine Learning for Large-Scale Networks
   co-located with the International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2017)

                              May 14-19, 2017
                              Anchorage, Alaska, USA


Modern Big Data increasingly appears in the form of complex networks and graphs. Examples include social networks, citation networks, communication networks, the World Wide Web. Researchers make use of network-based solutions for solving problems for diverse disciplines, including social mining, transportation, bioinformatics, computational science, health care and intelligence analysis.
However, the massive sizes, multiple types of entities (users, documents, items etc.), user behaviours and relations between entities that nowadays characterise most networks, have increased the challenge of methodologies that analyse and mine complex networks.
To address these challenges, machine learning models are often used for analysing and mining large-scale networks.
Furthermore, machine learning techniques enable novel methods of describing generative models for networks structures, dynamics and communities.

The workshop intends to facilitate the exchange of ideas between different research communities from both academia and industry, working at the intersection of machine learning and (social/complex) networks. The workshop focus will encompass machine learning algorithms for building and analysing large-scale networks, such as social networks, citation networks, etc. The workshop will host two keynote speakers (one from academia and one from industry), which will be announced at a later date.

  *   Community detection in large-scale networks
  *   Machine learning applications and challenges in mining big networks
  *   Distributed deep learning

Submission instructions
Authors  are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to machine learning for large-scale networks.
Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 8 pages in the IEEE 2-column format, including bibliography and any possible appendices.
Microsoft Word templates and LaTeX templates are available at the following web page: http://www.ijcnn.org/paper-submission .

Authors are kindly invited to submit the papers electronically in PDF format through the IEEE EasyChair online submission system available at
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mlln2017 .

All submissions will be peer-reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance to the topic, originality, significance and clarity.
Each submission should be regarded as an undertaking that, if the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors must register and attend the conference to present the work. No-show papers will not be included in the proceedings.
