Keynote 2 - Cyrus Shahabi (USC, USA)

Keynote Speaker: Drimitris Papadias (HKUST, Hong Kong)

Title: Query Processing in Geo-Social Networks


Abstract: The proliferation of GPS-enabled mobile devises and the popularity of social networking have recently led to the rapid growth of Geo-Social Networks (GeoSNs). GeoSNs have created a fertile ground for novel location-based social interactions, advertising and market analysis. In this presentation I will talk about i) GeoSN queries, which extract useful information combining both the social relationships and the current location of the users, ii) Geo-Social Ranking that ranks the users based on their social and spatial attributes, and iii) Real-Time Multi-criteria Graph Partitioning (RMGP) task for partitioning the social graph of a GeoSN.
