Discussion Groups of iDB2015

Private Discussion Group #1

TitleMini Workshop on Novel Web Search Interfaces and Systems
Coordinator:Makoto P. Kato (Kyoto University)
Mentors:Davood Rafiei (University of Alberta)
Yiqun Liu (Tsinghua University)
This mini workshop will be held as a part of iDB2015, and serves as a pre workshop of NWSearch, which will be co-located with CIKM 2015. We aim to discuss novel ideas for Web search interfaces and systems through concept papers submitted to this mini workshop.
Quote from the original workshop NWSearch:
The World Wide Web offers one of the largest and most diverse collection of documents, and this provides both challenges and opportunities in searching and mining the collection. The traditional method of searching the collection has been through using some keyword queries, browsing top few answers (referred to as "10 blue links") and sometimes navigating the links. While this simple interface is effective and serves many general needs, it is very primitive in expressing more complex tasks and search scenarios. For example, too many searches require more than one query, and once the relevant documents are found, not much else is done on those documents.

Private Discussion Group #2

TitleTowards a Large-scale Graph Data Management
Coordinator:Hiroaki Shiokawa (NTT)
Mentor:Jeffrey Xu Yu (CUHK)
Recent advances in social and information science have shown that graphs are becoming increasingly important to represent complicated structures and schema-less data such as is generated by online social networks, Web pages, computer networks, and various complex networks.
The graphs are generally large-scale, complex, noisy and evolve quickly; people thus easily feel overwhelmed by the information deluge coming from such large-scale graph data. From this reason, graph data management and analysis techniques play crucial roles for understanding interrelationships included in the large-scale graph data. Although progress is made over the past two decades for efficiently manage and analyze the large-scale graph data, some important issues still remain open. In this session, we will hold small workshop that focuses on recent interesting research issues of managing and analyzing large-scale graph data.

Public Discussion Group #3

TitleWorkshop on Event Detection Using Microblogs
Coordinator:Masumi Shirakawa (Osaka University)
Mentor:Mohamed Mokbel (University of Minnesota)
Event detection using microblogs has become one of the most substantial research topics involved with microblogs for half a decade. This topic consists of various subtopics such as user location estimation, key term extraction, community detection, sentiment analysis and visualization. Many researchers have concentrated their efforts on the subtopics and solved some challenging issues. However, how their state-of-the-art techniques are embedded in event detection systems is "out of scope" for them. In this workshop, young researchers who have devoted themselves to research on microblogs deliberate the gap between microblog-based event detection and the fundamental techniques, and rethink their own work from the viewpoint of reusability.

Partially Public Discussion Group #4

TitleWorkshop on Spatio-Temporal Data Retrieval
Coordinator:Takahiro Hara (Osaka University)
Mentor:Christian S. Jensen (Aalborg University)
Due to rapid advances in mobile devices such as smartphones and car navigation systems, a wide variety of location-based services (LBSs) are available. This trend has brought new challenges regarding spatio-temporal data retrieval. This workshop aims to cover any research issues on data management that concern geo-related functionality (e.g., involves geo-located content and/or users). The workshop plans to categorize the research issues and also seek possibility of future collaboration among participants.
