Call For Papers

Fourth International Workshop on Semantic Aspects in Data Mining (SADM)

In conjunction with the 2011 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM 2011)
Vancouver, Canada, December 10, 2011

***** Call For Papers *****

Knowledge Discovery is the process of automatic extraction of new knowledge from data. However, the characteristics of the data, their semantics as well as the contextual knowledge
that already exists about the data has rarely been explicitly incorporated into in the discovery process. Semantic and reasoning aspects may intervene in several steps of the discovery process, but how these aspects interact within the process, and the forms that this can take, is an issue that has been given little attention so far.The workshop will seek submissions where semantic information plays an explicit role in the knowledge discovery process. Contributions where general methods for exploiting semantics in the knowledge discovery process are introduced will be preferred. There are no limitations in the data mining sub-areas, ranging from biological data mining, privacy preserving data mining, web mining, text mining, spatio-temporal data mining and many others, provided a clear evidence on how semantics improves the quality of the mining process (in terms of more efficiency or more meaningful results) is clearly reported in the paper.
More specifically, the aim of the workshop is to receive original contributions in the following topics, which are not exclusive:
- Techniques to embed semantics into the discovery process
- Semantics in data pre-processing and post-processing
- Semantic-based pruning
- Knowledge-based data mining algorithms– Semantic-based techniques for feature selection
- Ontologies in data pre-processing and mining
- Ontology-based evaluation of discovered patterns
- Data Mining Query Languages
- Constraint-based data mining
- Conceptual modeling and data mining

Important Dates:

*** August,5, 2011 : Due date for full workshop papers
* September 20, 2011: Notification of paper acceptance to authors
* October 11, 2011: Camera-ready of accepted papers
* December 10, 2011: Workshop date

Best Paper
We organize a Best Paper award. The winner authors(s) will receive a diploma and a recommendation for publication of an extended version of the paper in the Journal of Knowledge and Systems Science.

Submission Guidelines and Review Process:

High quality research papers in the relevant areas are solicited. Original papers exploring new directions will receive especially careful consideration. Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered. All accepted workshop papers will be included in the IEEE ICDM Workshop Proceedings,
to be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.
Therefore, at least one author of the accepted paper must register to attend the workshop. Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 8 pages in PDF format, in the IEEE 2-column style.
All papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance to workshop topics, originality, significance, and clarity. We will follow the double blind review process.
