Complex networks are ubiquitous in many domains. Examples include technological, informational, social, and biological networks.  In this talk, I will present algorithms for both relational classification and clustering in such networked data.  I will pay special attention to issues surrounding scalability, transfer of knowledge across networks, and evaluation in such non-IID settings.
