[Dbworld] (New Book) Mining Human Mobility in Location-Based Social Networks

I am pleased to announce the latest title in Morgan & Claypool's series on Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery:

Mining Human Mobility in Location-Based Social Networks
Huiji Gao, LinkedIn
Huan Liu, Arizona State University
Paperback ISBN: 9781627054126, $40.00
eBook ISBN: 9781627054133
April 2015, 115 pages
http://dx.doi.org/10.2200/S00630ED1V01Y201502DMK011 
Abstract:
In recent years, there has been a rapid growth of location-based social networking services, such as
Foursquare and Facebook Places, which have attracted an increasing number of users and greatly enriched
their urban experience. Typical location-based social networking sites allow a user to "check in" at a
real-world POI (point of interest, e.g., a hotel, restaurant, theater, etc.), leave tips toward the POI,
and share the check-in with their online friends. The check-in action bridges the gap between real world
and online social networks, resulting in a new type of social networks, namely location-based social
networks (LBSNs). Compared to traditional GPS data, location-based social networks data contains
unique properties with abundant heterogeneous information to reveal human mobility, 
 i.e., "when and where a user (who) has been to for what," corresponding to an unprecedented opportunity to
better understand human mobility from spatial, temporal, social, and content aspec!
 ts. The mining and understanding of human mobility can further lead to effective approaches to improve
current location-based services from mobile marketing to recommender systems, providing users more
convenient life experience than before. This book takes a data mining perspective to offer an overview of
studying human mobility in location-based social networks and illuminate a wide range of related
computational tasks. It introduces basic concepts, elaborates associated challenges, reviews
state-of-the-art algorithms with illustrative examples and real-world LBSN datasets, and discusses
effective evaluation methods in mining human mobility. In particular, we illustrate unique
characteristics and research opportunities of LBSN data, present representative tasks of mining human
mobility 
 on location-based social networks, including capturing user mobility patterns to understand when and

[Dbworld] Deadline Extension: First Workshop on Decision and Rule Mining 2015 (DRUM'15)

--------------------------------------------

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO AUGUST 14TH, 2015

--------------------------------------------

** CALL FOR PAPERS **

1ST WORKSHOP ON DECISION AND RULE MINING (DRUM'15)

in conjunction with ICSOC 2015

November 16-19, GOA, INDIA

Procedural process modelling languages, such as BPMN, Petri nets, UML ADs, EPCs and BPEL, are very useful
in environments that are stable and where the decision procedures are predictable and can be predefined.
With these languages, process participants can be guided step-by-step by process models in process
executions. 

The declarative approach is alternative (though non-exclusive) to the procedural one. Declarative
specifications, instead of explicitly detailing all possible sequences of tasks in a process,
implicitly detail the allowed behavior of the process with constraints, i.e., rules that can be enforced
at design time or during the process execution. This type of specifications can also be used together with
procedural specifications, e.g., in hybrid approaches or to impose declarative constraints on
procedural models. 

In both procedural and declarative approaches, business conditions on data, i.e., business decisions,
can be used to drive either the choice of the path to follow (in the procedural case) or the application of a
rule (in the declarative case).

Making explicit the rules and the decisions that are embedded in procedures or orthogonal to procedural
specifications allows business analysts and designers to explicitly define the business logics
underlying processes or the constraints to be applied on top of them. Business decision rules can be
described by means of declarative models (e.g., Declare models), through sets of logical formulas
(e.g., LTL formulas), using special notations (e.g., ORM) or even in natural language.

Rules and decisions can be explicitly modeled together with or instead of procedural models; mined from
online or completed process executions; used to analyze existing procedures by detecting deviances and
rule violations; enforced against existing processes and process executions;  applied to improve and
re-design process models.

** KEY TOPICS **

The workshop topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Business and Decision Rules  
- Rule Notations, Specifications and Languages
- User-friendly Notations for defining Rules and Decisions
- Declarative Process Modelling
- Rule Checking and Verification
- Rule, Decision and Process Mining
- Norms and Laws
