Keynote: Automated Machine Learning on Graphs
Professor of Tsinghua University
Abstract: Automated machine learning (AutoML) on graphs, which combines the strength of graph machine learning and AutoML, is gaining attention from the research community. This talk will first overview graph machine learning and AutoML on graphs. Then, recent advances, including efficient neural architecture search for self-attention representation, hyper-parameter optimization on large-scale graphs, and increasing explainability in AutoML on graphs, will be discussed. We will also introduce AutoGL, the first dedicated framework and open-source library for AutoML on graphs, which is expected to facilitate the research and application in the community. Last but not least, our insights on future research directions will be shared with the audience.

Keynote: Blockchain Supervision and Covert Communication
Professor of Beijing University of Technology
Abstract: The public blockchain, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and EOS, is easy to be used for money laundering, ransom payment, dissemination of illegal content, and other criminal activities due to its decentralization and anonymity, which may cause serious harm to financial order and social stability. Thus, it is urgent to study the corresponding supervision methodologies, by the comprehensive analysis of transactions and data flow, the effective realization of network monitoring and transaction traceability of public blockchain. On the other hand, the characteristics of the public blockchain, such as peer-to-peer communication and anonymous identity, are conducive to covert data transmission. The blockchain transactions can be considered as a natural carrier for the construction of covert channels. Also, the blockchain-based covert communication also faces many technical challenges. This report mainly introduces the technical characteristics of the public blockchain, as well as the supervision methodology for the public blockchain and the corresponding covert communication technology.

Keynote: Deep Convolutional Networks via Theories from Signal Processing
Professor of Shanghai Jiaotong University
Abstract: This talk presents a global trajectory of signal processing for analysis and representation emerging within decades. It begins with time-frequency decompositions, wavelet orthogonal bases, multiscale geometric analysis, approximations and sparsity from orthonormal bases to redundant dictionaries of waveforms, compressive sensing and dictionary learning as well. The striking efforts in deep learning would also be addressed for a comprehensive perspective. Our recent works exploring structured sparsity and deep convolutional networks for scalable and compact representation of high-dimensional signals will be described as some examples. By rethinking the cutting-edge signal processing techniques in alignment with interdisciplinary inspirations, it is appealing to make the scientific community move forward and avoid dying by starvation in a progressively narrower and specialized domain. If possible, we might present the trajectory from graph signal processing towards graph neural networks. Specifically, we overview existing graph network methodology and elaborate the underlying theoretical foundation. Furthermore, our relevant theoretical and technical efforts have been provided to inspire possible expectations.
