# Abstract

Graphs such as social networks and molecular graphs are ubiquitous data structures in the real world. Due to their prevalence, it is of great research importance to extract meaningful patterns from graph structured data so that downstream tasks can be facilitated. Instead of designing hand-engineered features, graph representation learning has emerged to learn representations that can encode the abundant information about the graph. It has achieved tremendous success in various tasks such as node classification, link prediction, and graph classification and has attracted increasing attention in recent years. In this tutorial, we systematically review the foundations, techniques, applications and advances in graph representation learning.
