Call For Papers


In cooperation with IEEE ICDM 2011 | 10 December, 2011 (Vancouver, Canada)


The analysis of climate data, both observed and model-generated, poses a number
of unique challenges: (i) massive quantities of data are available for mining,
(ii) the data is spatially and temporally correlated so the IID assumption does
not apply, (iii) the data-generating processes are known to be non-linear,
(iv) the data is potentially noisy, and (v) extreme events exist within the data.

In the computational data sciences, temporal, spatial and space-time data mining
differ fundamentally from traditional data mining in that the learning samples
are dependent, making auto- and cross-correlations important. Climate data mining
is based on geographic data and inherits the attributes of space-time data mining.
In addition, climate relationships are nonlinear, spatial correlations can be over
long range (teleconnections) and have long memory in time. Thus, in addition to
new or state of the art tools from temporal, spatial and spatio-temporal data
mining, new methods from nonlinear modeling and analysis are motivated along with
analysis of massive data for teleconnections and long-memory dependence.

Climate extremes may be inclusively defined as severe weather events as well as
significant regional changes in hydro-meteorology, which are caused or exacerbated
by climate change, and climate modelers and statisticians struggle to develop
precise projections of such phenomena. The ability to develop predictive insights
about extremes motivates the need to develop indices based on nonlinear
dimensionality reduction and anomaly analysis in space-time processes from massive
data. Knowledge discovery is broadly construed here to include high-performance
data mining of geographically-distributed climate model outputs and observations,
analysis of space-time correlations and teleconnections, geographical analyses of
extremes and their consequences obtained through fusion of heterogeneous climate
and GIS data along with their derivatives, geospatial-temporal uncertainty
quantification, as well as scalable geo-visualization for decision support.

TOPICS OF INTEREST include but are not limited to:
- Methods for mining climate datasets for patterns, trends, or extremes
- Complex networks and climate
- Spatio-temporal data mining
- Mining for rare events or phenomena in climate data
- Algorithms and implementations for the analysis of climate data, including
) Patterns / Clusters
) Extremes / Outliers
) Change Detection
- Methods addressing the role of uncertainty in space-time prediction
- High-performance data mining for the analysis of climate data
- Studies assessing the impacts of climate change and/or extremes
- Applications that demonstrate success stories of knowledge discovery
from climate data
