Call For Papers

In conjunction with CLA 2016:

Concept discovery is a subdomain of Knowledge Discovery (KDD) that uses human-centered techniques such as Formal Concept Analysis (FCA), Topic Modeling, Visual Text Representations, Conceptual Graphs etc. for gaining insight into the underlying conceptual structure of the data. Traditional machine learning techniques are mainly focusing on structured data whereas most data available resides in unstructured, often textual, form. Compared to traditional data mining techniques, human-centered instruments actively engage the domain expert in the discovery process.

This workshop welcomes papers describing innovative research on data discovery techniques. Moreover, this workshop intends to provide a forum for researchers and developers of data mining instruments, working on issues associated with analyzing unstructured data. First, we are interested in methods for transforming unstructured into semi-structured information. Unstructured information such as texts or images can be tagged, keywords can be extracted from texts by means of Natural Language Processing methods, etc. For example, recently so-called Learning Representations such as Text Vectors or Visual Words have gained much attention in the domain of unstructured data. Second, in this workshop we also particularly welcome research on using human-centered instruments such as FCA to analyze unstructured and semi-structured data. Applications in which we are interested include but are not limited to Text Mining and Web Mining including forums, blogs, social sharing systems like Twitter and Facebook, mining sociological interviews, etc. We are also interested in innovative instruments for dealing with knowledge incompleteness and asymmetry.

Subject coverage:

- Applications of FCA for discovery purposes

- Association Rules and Frequent Closed Itemsets

- Biclustering and Multimodal clustering

- Conceptual Clustering

- Dealing with knowledge incompleteness and asymmetry
