Graph Modeling: Concepts and Applications

Dr. Ismael A Ali, University of Zakho
Room: University of Zakho – Chemistry Hall


Graphs, from discrete mathematics, are everywhere in the universe, all the way from galaxies down to molecules and atoms. As an efficient tool; graphs can represent, formulate, analyze and solve many of the real-life problems in our every-day life. For instance, they help us going places using the GPS gadget, booking flights, finding friends on social networks, analyzing financial and security crises, finding proper drugs for our illness symptoms. But what are graphs? Why really to use them? When to use them? How to use them? This workshop will help you find proper answers for these questions. Furthermore, it will present needed concepts of graph modeling, which is how to reduce your research problem into a graph theory problem, with two life demo examples from field of Social Network Analysis and Semantic-Based Text Mining, respectively the problems of Finding Communities in Facebook and Topic Modeling in newsletter text corpora. Finally, the workshop will present and discuss open problems and potential research collaborations for the subject of the graph modeling among participants.
