Analyzing data as graphs has transitioned from a minor subfield into a major industrial effort over the past 20 years. The World Wide Web was responsible for much of this grow and the Workshop on Algorithms and Models for the Web-graph (WAW) originally started by trying to understand the behavior and processes underlying the web. It has since outgrown these roots and WAW is now one of the premier venues for original research work that blends rigorous theory and experiments in analyzing data as a graph. The workshop features research on the diversity of modern networks including:
The aim of the 12th Workshop on Algorithms and Models for the Web-graph (WAW2015) is to stimulate further theoretical and practical developments on graph algorithms and models that impact these domains.
