Call For Papers

The ever increasing aspect of social networking and deployment of advanced digital sensors, to gather data particularly with high social content has interesting dimensions to be explored. The content variation in the data/media streams poses a challenging task to the data scientists in terms of adaptability required to capture the sense and context of the problem being addressed. The adaptability thus required has to cater multi-faceted issues. These issues pertain to considerations related to the 4V’s of Big Data (Volume, Variety, Velocity and Veracity).

The neuro-adaptive systems have been used in the past to capture the variation and to incorporate adaptiveness within the systems. The aim of this special session is to solicit contributions that are based on statistical learning, lazy learning, artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic based, evolutionary, genetic, knowledge system and adaptive algorithms designed to focus on Big Data, Social Media Analytics especially in the context of the topics listed for the special session.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-Data Science and Social Analytics
-Emerging Technologies and their Complexities
-Modelling and Visualization
-Parallelization and Distributed Processing
-Personalized Digital Activities
-Opinion Mining and Sentiment Analysis
-Author Profiling, Personality and Behavioral Predictions
-Ontology Analysis
-Web Content Mining
-Community Structure Prediction
-Trust Recommendation Modeling

Important Dates:

-Paper submission: January 15, 2015
-Paper decision notification: March 15, 2015
-Camera-ready submission: April 15, 2015
-Conference days: July 12-17, 2015
