"Pattern Mining: Methods, Applications, and Challenges".

Short Bio
Jian Pei is a Professor in the School of Computing Science at Simon Fraser University, Canada. He received a Ph.D. degree from the same school in 2002, under Dr. Jiawei Han's supervision. His expertise is on developing effective and efficient data analysis techniques for novel data intensive applications. He is currently interested in developing various techniques of data mining, Web search, information retrieval, data warehousing, online analytical processing, and database systems, as well as their applications in social networks, health-informatics, and business intelligence. His research outcomes have been adopted by industry and popular open source software suites. His research has been extensively supported in part by government agencies and industry partners. Since 2000, he has published one textbook, two monographs and over 190 research papers in refereed journals and conferences, which have been cited by more than 20,000 times. He is the editor-in-chief of the IEEE Transactions of Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE), and an associate editor or editorial board member of the major journals in the field of data mining. He is a senior member of ACM and IEEE, and an ACM Distinguished Speaker. He received several prestigious awards.

"Pattern recognition systems under attack"

Pattern recognition systems are currently used in several applications, like biometric recognition, spam filtering, and intrusion detection in computer networks, which differ from the traditional ones. The difference lies in the fact that in these applications an intelligent, adaptive adversary can actively manipulate patterns with the aim of making the classifier ineffective, namely, with the aim of evading it. This kind of problem has been recently named adversarial classification, and is the subject of an emerging research field in the machine learning and pattern recognition communities.

In this talk, I introduce the fundamentals of adversarial classification from the perspective of a designer of pattern recognition systems, and illustrate the concepts of adversary-aware classifier, security evaluation, and defence countermeasures, with examples from security applications like spam filtering and biometric recognition.

Speech length: 45 minutes.

Short Bio
Fabio Roli received his M.S. degree, with honours, and Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Genoa, Italy. He is professor of computer engineering and Director of the research lab on pattern recognition and applications (http://pralab.diee.unica.it). Dr Roli's research activity is focused on the design of pattern recognition systems and their applications to biometric personal identification, multimedia text categorization, and computer security. On these topics, he has published more than two hundred papers at conferences and on journals. He was a very active organizer of international conferences and workshops, and established the popular workshop series on multiple classifier systems (www.diee.unica.it/mcs). He is a member of the governing boards of the International Association for Pattern Recognition and of the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society. He is Fellow of the IEEE, and Fellow of the International Association for Pattern Recognition. Further details are available on his web site (http://pralab.diee.unica.it/en/FabioRoli).

He has published more than 400 research papers in refereed international journals and conferences in the areas of image processing, computer vision and pattern recognition, and has authored or edited 11 books. He holds more than 70 patents. His current research interests include biometrics, image and video understanding, and information forensics and security. Dr Tan is a Fellow of the IEEE and the IAPR (the International Association of Pattern Recognition). He currently serves as President of the IEEE Biometrics Council, First Vice President of the IAPR and Deputy President of the Chinese Association for Artificial Intelligence. He was the Founding Chair of the IAPR Technical Committee on Biometrics, the IAPR/IEEE International Conference on Biometrics (ICB), the IEEE International Workshop on Visual Surveillance, Asian Conference on Pattern Recognition (ACPR) and Chinese Conference on Pattern Recognition (CCPR). He was the Executive Vice President of the Chinese Society of Image and Graphics, Deputy President of the China Computer Federation and the Chinese Automation Association. He has served as chair or program committee member for many major national and international conferences. He is or has served as Associate Editor or member of editorial boards of many leading international journals including IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (PAMI), IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, Pattern Recognition, Pattern Recognition Letters, Image and Vision Computing, etc. He is Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Automation and Computing.
