NATO Advanced Study Institute on Mining Massive Data Sets for Security
This Workshop brings together scientists and engineers interested in recent developments in exploiting Massive Data Sets. Emphasis is placed on available techniques and their application to security-critical applications.
Today our world is awash in data and we live in an Information Society where every action leaves a trace, generating massive amounts of data. Recent scientific developments provide technologies to exploit these huge amounts of data and extract from it critical information. Used today in many commercial applications (marketing campaigns, user profiling and recommendations on e-commerce sites, web search,users communitiee...), these technologies can also be used for security-critical applications (fraud detection and money laundering, intrusions detection, intelligence gathering, terrorist networks detection, Web surveillance...).
It is the purpose of this workshop to review the various technologies available (data mining algorithms, social networks, crawling and indexing, text-mining, search engines, data streams) in the context of very large data sets.
The workshop will provide survey presentations & posters to help building a scientific community aware of security issues and techniques to solve them.
