    Announcement and Call for Participation

NATO Advanced Study Institute on 
Mining Massive Data Sets for Security

September 10 - 21, 2007
Villa Cagnola - Gazzada - Italy

This 2-week 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, user communities), 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, social networks, search engines, crawling and
indexing, text-mining, data streams) in the context of very large data

The workshop will provide survey presentations , oral presentations &
posters to help building a scientific community aware of security
issues and techniques to solve them.

In NATO ASI events, all participants are requested to participate
actively with a poster or presentation and to stay for the whole
period. Funding for some participants will be available according to
NATO ASI rules.
