In today's competitive and fast-evolving business environment, it is a critical time for organizations and individuals to rethink how to deal with career-related tasks (e.g., recruitment, development, incentive, and career planning) more scientifically. Indeed, the availability of large-scale career-related data provides unparalleled opportunities for business leaders and researchers to understand the scientific rules of careers. Career Science, an emerging interdisciplinary research direction, has increasingly attracted attention from data mining communities. As a result, extensive intelligent tools and models have been developed for effective and efficient decision-making in complex scenarios affecting talents, organizations, and the labor market. To this end, this workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss critical problems in career-related domains and potential data-driven solutions by leveraging state-of-the-art data mining technologies.

Processing SPARQL Queries Over Distributed RDF Graphs -
A Partial Evaluation and Assembly Approach

Prof. Lei Zou

Peking University


We propose techniques for processing SPARQL queries over a large RDF graph in a distributed environment. We adopt a "partial evaluation and assembly" framework. Answering a SPARQL query Q is equivalent to finding subgraph matches of the query graph Q over RDF graph G. Based on properties of subgraph matching over a distributed graph, we introduce local partial match as partial answers in each fragment of RDF graph G. For assembly, we propose two methods: centralized and distributed assembly.

Short Biography

Lei Zou received his BS degree and Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) in 2003 and 2009, respectively. He received a CCF (China Computer Federation) Doctoral Dissertation Nomination Award in 2009, won Second Class Prize of CCF Natural Science Award in 2014 and Second Class Prize of Natural Science of the Ministry of Education, China in 2017. Since September 2009, he joined Institute of Computer Science and Technology (ICST) of Peking University (PKU) as a faculty member. He has been a professor in PKU since August 2017. Before joining PKU, he visited Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2007 and University of Waterloo in 2008 as a visiting scholar. His recent research interests include graph databases, knowledge graph, particularly in graph-based RDF data management. He has published more than 50 papers, including more than 30 papers published in reputed journals and major international conferences, such as SIGMOD, VLDB, ICDE, TODS, TKDE, VLDB Journal.

Architecting a Comprehensive Enterprise Graph Platform

Dr. Yinglong Xia

Huawei Research America


Graph technology has been playing increasingly important roles in various machine learning, data analytics, and resource management domains, thus more and more companies have been adopting/utilizing graph platforms, either on cloud or on premise, to support their business. In this talk, we will investigate various factors that contribute to the success of a graph platform for enterprise use, ranging from graph data organization, runtime scheduling, analytics optimization, to some thoughts on recent graph deep learning frameworks. We will discuss through some concrete examples on how to effectively put together the above building blocks, so as to form a comprehensive graph platform delivering efficient end-to-end performance to meet the requirements in many industrial scenarios. At last, we will brief some recent activities in graph technology community, such as the discussions on its standardization, along with the summary of the challenges and opportunities.
