Leman’s paper among the best in ECML/PKDD’09
RTG: A Recursive Realistic Graph Generator using Random Typing
by Leman Akoglu and Christos Faloutsos
was accepted to ECML/PKDD’09, and, as one of the best 14 papers,
is invited for immediate journal publication, out of 422 submissions
and 105 acceptances.
Leman is a PhD student in SCS, and ECML/PKDD is one of the top
conferences in data mining. The paper describes a simple, intuitive
mechanism to generate realistic graphs, and it shows that the resulting
graphs obey numerous of the patterns observed in real graphs.
