Satellite Workshop Tutorial:
Molecular networks, the rise of networks of networks


This special session focuses on the network inspired approaches to analysis and integration of
the massive data sets now prevalent in the life sciences. It introduces new approaches and
solutions to the Big Data problem, and presents new techniques in the field of graph theory for
handling and processing challenging large data sets. By discussing cutting-edge problems and
techniques, the session offers researchers from a wide range of fields a unique opportunity to gain
an insight on the status and perspectives of exploiting big heterogonous data in the life-sciences
through concept of “Network of Networks”.

Topics including but not limited to:
▪ Approaches to analysis of heterogeneous graph
▪ Spectral theory of graphs and networks
▪ Sampling and summarization of big graphs
▪ Graph clustering, partitioning, and classification methods
▪ Scalable graph measurement
▪ Inference and Mining large / heterogeneous graphs
▪ Novel applications of large -scale graph problems in system biology and medicine
