Publishing with IEEE

Event Start Date:
January 20, 2017
Event End Date:
January 20, 2017
Event Venue:

Identifying where to publish your research can be a daunting task. Should you do a poster, a presentation, a conference paper, a journal article or all of the above? What is double-blind peer review, a green open access publication, a predatory journal and other publication jargon? In this session, Jalyn Kelley, Client Services Manager from IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), will provide insights into what editors look for in a submission, why reviewers reject papers and tips on how to improve your chances of being accepted. She will also go over strategies for conducting a literature review and staying up-to-date on the latest research in your field. This program will be helpful for students and faculty interested in publishing with IEEE or other scholarly publishers.

About the Speaker: Jalyn Kelley is an IEEE Client Services Manager, providing training and support to IEEE customers and members in the central and southern U.S. Jalyn previously worked as a Research Analyst at Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) providing strategic market and technical research to IT specialists in the field. Jalyn has also worked as an Assistant Editor of Information Services at the San Antonio Express-News and received a Master of Information Science from the University of Texas at Austin.

Blocking Web Spam by Entropy-based Cascade Outlier Detection

Dr. Yan Zhu
Professor
School of Information Science and Technology

Web spam refers to Web pages that try to trick search engines to increase their rankings. It causes huge damage for e-commerce and Web users and threatens Web security. Therefore, combating Web spam is an urgent task. In this talk, I will introduce a cascade detection mechanism based on the entropy-based outlier mining (EOM) algorithm, where Web quality and semantic features are integrated with content and link characteristics to cover multiple dimensions of Web pages. The detection mechanism consists of three stages with different feature groups. Experiments on WEBSPAM-UK2007 showed that quality and semantic features could effectively improve detection, and that the EOM algorithm outperformed many classic classification algorithms for unbalanced data.

 

About the Speaker: Dr. Yan Zhu is a professor at Southwest Jiaotong University (SWJTU) in China. She received her Ph.D. degree in computer science from Darmstadt University of Technology (TU Darmstadt), Germany, in 2004 and was a research staff member in the Department of Computer Science at TU Darmstadt from 1998 to 2004. She joined the faculty of SWJTU in 2005, where she leads the Data Mining and Web Engineering Group.

Her research interests are in the areas of data mining, big data analysis and management, and Web data security. She has written two books (published by Shaker Verlag, Germany, in 2004 and by SWJTU Press, China, in 2011) and many SCI/EI indexed papers.
