Reminder: HNR lunch lecture Mehwish Alam (November 18): Graph Representation Learning

Dear all,

This is a gentle reminder for our upcoming Historical Network Research lunch lecture on Thursday November 18. The seminar will start at 12:00 pm CET and ends one hour later.

Our speaker will be Mehwish Alam, Post-Doctoral Researcher/Senior Researcher at FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Institute of Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods (AIFB). Dr. Mehwish Alam will be speaking on “Graph Representation Learning” (see abstract below).

If you would like to participate, please register via Eventbrite before November 16, 2021. You will receive a Zoom link by email prior to the lunch lecture. After this talk, we will move towards a bimonthly rhythm, so watch out for the next lecture in January 2022!

We hope to welcome you online on November 18! Meanwhile, if you have any questions please contact us at

Best wishes,

Aline Deicke and Ingeborg van Vugt



Graph Representation Learning

This talk focuses on ways to perform representation learning on graphs such as citation network, author collaboration network, etc. It then moves on to the graphs with relational information, known as Knowledge Graphs. As they are typically used in an open-world setting, Knowledge Graphs can almost never assumed to be complete, i.e., some information will typically be missing. In order to address this problem, different Knowledge Graph embedding models have been proposed for automated Knowledge Graph completion. These models are mostly based on the tasks such as link prediction, triple classification, and entity classification/typing. This talk will also target the topic of Knowledge Graph embedding techniques. Finally, various applications of Knowledge Graphs and Knowledge Graph embeddings will be discussed.
