The best paper award is to be given at he ICDM (International Conference on Data Mining) 2017 taking place in New Orleans, US, next November, 18-21st for the paper "TensorCast: Forecasting with Context using Coupled Tensors".
The paper is co-authored by Miguel Araújo (MAP-i/CMU), Pedro Ribeiro (CRACS/INESC TEC & FCUP) and Christos Faloutsos (CMU) and it provides a fast and effective algorithm, to forecast the evolution of a tensor (like who-publishes-where-and-when), given additional, side information (like who has been co-author with whom).
The paper is based on the PhD research of Miguel Araújo who has completed his PhD last May, in fact completed the Dual-PhD in Computer Science between MAP-i and Carnegie Mellon University.
ICDM is A* ranked conference with an acceptance rate of about 10%.
Our congratulations to the excellent work by Miguel and his co-authors.
