FUSION 2015 : SS Data Mining and Knowledge Discover - Fusion 2015
Call For Papers
The International Conference on Information Fusion is the major venue for researchers and practitioners interested in the latest advances in information fusion and their impacts on our society. FUSION 2015 (http://www.fusion2015.org/) will take place in Washington, D.C. on July 6-10 2015.
After a successful first edition in 2014, we are proposing a new edition of the special session on Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery in Information Fusion at FUSION 2015 to present the latest advances on the area. Submissions on topics related to theory and applications of data mining in the context of information fusion are welcome. The selected authors will present their contribution during the session, and their paper will be included in the conference proceedings published by IEEE.
Please find below the complete call for papers. Feel free to send questions or comments to the members of the organizing committee.

Special session on
Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
in Information Fusion
Fusion 2015 (http://fusion2015.org/)
July 6-9, Washington, D.C.
Data Mining aims at the automatic discovery of underlying non-trivial knowledge from datasets by applying intelligent analysis techniques. The interest in this research area has experienced a considerable growth in the last years due to two key factors: (a) knowledge hidden in organizations’ databases can be exploited to improve decision-making; and (b) the large volume of data managed by organizations makes it impossible to carry out a manual analysis.
These issues are also becoming frequent in data and information fusion as a result of the increasing number of sensors used, the paradigm shift from lower-level object recognition to higher-level situation assessment, and the incorporation of heterogeneous sources to the fusion process (including soft information in textual form). Data mining and knowledge discovery methods can be used to extract from datasets elaborated knowledge that can be afterwards fused with sensor-based data and other information. Furthermore, data mining and knowledge discovery methods can be applied on fused data to achieve better inferences towards situation and threat assessment. Consequently, the Information Fusion community can benefit from well-established approaches and new advances in data mining and knowledge discovery –such as machine learning and pattern recognition algorithms, imprecise and uncertain knowledge management formalisms, big data analysis tools, natural language processing techniques, etc.– to develop fusion systems able to exploit more information sources more efficiently.
The objective of this special session is to bring together researchers interested in the development and application of data mining and knowledge discovery methods in Information Fusion. The session is open to contributions generated by specialists in related areas in order to promote interdisciplinary collaborations and cross-fertilization.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Data mining from multiple sources
- Knowledge discovery for higher-level information fusion
- Fusion of data mining knowledge
- Stream data mining and temporal data series
- Big data mining
- Data, text and web mining in soft information fusion
- Imprecision, uncertainty and vagueness in data mining
- Anomaly and exception detection from datasets
- Data pre- and post- processing
- Parallel and distributed data mining algorithms
- Information summarization and visualization
- Human-machine interaction for data access
- Linguistic description of information
- Semantic models to represent extracted knowledge
- Applications: defense, surveillance, cyber-security, maritime and aerial traffic control, emergency management, etc.
Papers must be submitted through the system found at the conference submission system (https://edas.info/N19499), where the name of the session will be specified. The length of the papers should be 6-8 pages including figures and references, and must follow the template specified at the conference web page. See more details at http://fusion2015.org/submissions/.
Before submitting their contributions, authors are encouraged to send to the session organizers a statement of interest including full author list, abstract and presenting author.
