The 6th International Conference on Analysis of Images, Social Networks and Texts Held in Moscow
The 6th International Conference on Analysis of Images, Social Networks and Texts was held on July 27-29 in Moscow with the support of the Higher School of Economics. This year 130 papers from different universities, including many international ones, were submitted for the conference. The best works were selected by renowned experts in data analysis from all over the world; these papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published in the series ‘Lecture Notes in Computer Science’ issued by Springer.
Dmitry Ignatov, Associate Professor at the School of Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence chaired the programme committee.
Rostislav Yavorskiy, Associate Professor at the School of Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence, and Anna Kalenkova, Senior Research Fellow at the Laboratory of Process-Aware Information Systems (PAIS Lab), were members of the organizing committee.
Every year AIST brings together specialists in data analysis, and works as a platform to discuss new directions in the field of data science. Just a few years ago AIST was organised as a small workshop, but this year the conference brought together about 200 researchers and industry representatives. Over 30 HSE students and lecturers took part in the event.
This year a new section on analysis of dynamic behavior through event data, represented by the Laboratory of Process-Aware Information Systems (PAIS Lab) of the Faculty of Computer Science was included in the conference programme. Irina Lomazova, Head of the Laboratory of Process-Aware Information Systems (PAIS Lab), and Wil van der Aalst, Professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology (the Netherlands), co-chaired the section.
Anna Kalenkova and Alexey Mitsyuk, Research Fellows at the Laboratory of Process-Aware Information Systems (PAIS Lab) presented their research projects at the section.
The following staff members and doctoral students of the Faculty of Computer Science also presented their works at the conference: Olga Gerasimova, Leonid Zhukov, Alexey Zobnin, Dmitry Ignatov, Attila Kertesz-Farkas, Ilya Makarov, Natalia Meshcheryakova, Ramon A. Rodriges Zalipynis, Roman Chereshnev, Konstantin Yakovlev. The following staff members of other HSE campuses, faculties and laboratories also participated in the event: Sofia Dokuka, Ilia Karpov, Ekaterina Krekhovets, Dmitry Levando, Alina Ozhegova, Evgeniy Ozhegov, Margarita Priymak, and Andrey Savchenko.
