报告题目：Introduction to Social Computing
报告摘要：Social computing is a hot research direction recently in computer science and management information systems. It is in the interdesplinary area of social science, information systems, mathematical graph theory, computer network and data science. This talk gives an introduction to this research field and presents fundamental knowledge about mathematical theory of social computing.
Dr. Weili (Lily) Wu received her MS and PhD degrees in computer science both from University of Minnesota. Her research focuses on the design and analysis of algorithms for optimization problems occurring in Data Science, especially in Big Data, Social computing, and wireless database systems with connection to wireless communication. Most of her research has been founded by the NSF (USA), and CNSF (China), two of the most prestigious and high competitive federal funding agencies in the United States and China. She has published more than 250 papers in prestigious journals and conferences such as IEEE Trans on Knowl. Data Eng.(TKDE), Comput. Social Systems, Network & Service Mgmt,Mob. Comput. (TMC), Wireless Communications (TWC), Multimedia (TMM), Parallel and Distrib. Systems (TPDS), ACM Trans. on Sensor Networks (TOSN), IEEE/ACM Trans on Netw. (TON), J. Global Optimization (JGO), J. Parallel Distrib. Comput.(JPDC), J. Computational Biology (JCB),Discrete Math.(DM), Social Netw. Analysis and Mining(SNAM), Discrete Applied Math. (DAM), IEEE INFOCOM, ACM SIGKDD, Int. Conf on Distributed Computing Systems(ICDCS), Database & Expert Systems Appli. (DEXA), SIAMConference on Data Mining, etc. She is an associate editor of Int. J. of Bioinformatics Research and Applications (IJBRA), Knowl. Inf. Syst. (KAIS), SOP Trans. on Wireless Communications (STOWC), and Computational Social Netw.(CSN). She was selected as a site evaluator to review NSF research grant proposals (ITR, sensors, infrastructure, etc) along with invitations to multiple panels at NSF. She is an Organization Co-Chairs/program/Advisory committee member of many top conferences including INFOCOM, ICDM, DASFAA, COCOON, etc). She is a senior member of IEEE.
