The International Conference on Machine learning, Optimization, and big Data (MOD) has established itself as a premier interdisciplinary conference
in machine learning, computational optimization, knowledge discovery and data science. It provides an international forum for presentation of original
multidisciplinary research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative and practical development experiences.

The conference will consist of four days of conference sessions. We invite submissions of papers on all topics related to Machine learning, Optimization,
Knowledge Discovery and Data Science including real-world applications for the Conference Proceedings (Springer ? Lecture Notes in Computer Science -LNCS).

Topics of Interest
The last five-year period has seen a impressive revolution in the theory and application of machine learning, optimization and big data.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Foundations, algorithms, models and theory of data science, including big data mining.
* Machine learning and statistical methods for big data.
* Machine Learning algorithms and models. Neural Networks and Learning Systems. Convolutional neural networks.
* Unsupervised, semi-supervised, and supervised Learning.
* Knowledge Discovery. Learning Representations. Representation learning for planning and reinforcement learning.
* Metric learning and kernel learning. Sparse coding and dimensionality expansion. Hierarchical models. Learning representations of outputs or states.
* Multi-objective optimization. Optimization and Game Theory. Surrogate-assisted Optimization. Derivative-free Optimization.
* Big data Mining from heterogeneous data sources, including text, semi-structured, spatio-temporal, streaming, graph, web, and multimedia data.
* Big Data mining systems and platforms, and their efficiency, scalability, security and privacy.
* Computational optimization. Optimization for representation learning. Optimization under Uncertainty
* Optimization algorithms for Real World Applications. Optimization for Big Data. Optimization and Machine Learning.
* Implementation issues, parallelization, software platforms, hardware
* Big Data mining for modeling, visualization, personalization, and recommendation.
* Big Data mining for cyber-physical systems and complex, time-evolving networks.
* Applications in social sciences, physical sciences, engineering, life sciences, web, marketing, finance, precision medicine, health informatics, medicine and other domains.

We particularly encourage submissions in emerging topics of high importance such as data quality, advanced deep learning, time-evolving networks, large multi-objective optimization, quantum discrete optimization, learning representations, big data mining and analytics, cyber-physical systems, heterogeneous data integration and mining, autonomous decision and adaptive control.

Submission Guidelines
Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 12 pages, in the Springer LNCS format:
including the bibliography and any possible appendices.

All submissions will be 6-blind reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, significance, multidisciplinary, relevance to scope of the conference, originality and clarity.

Types of Submissions
When submitting a paper to MOD 2017, authors are required to select
one of the following four types of papers:
+ Long paper: original novel and unpublished work (max. 12 pages in Springer LNCS format);
+ Short paper: an extended abstract of novel work (max. 4 pages);
+ Work for oral presentation only (no page restriction; any format).
For example, work already published elsewhere, which is relevant and which may solicit fruitful discussion at the conference;
+ Abstract for poster presentation only (max. 2 pages). The poster format for the presentation is A0 (118.9 cm high and 84.1 cm wide, respectively 46.8 x 33.1 inch). For research work which is relevant and which may solicit fruitful discussion at the conference.

All accepted long papers will be published in a volume of the series 'Lecture Notes in Computer Science' from Springer *after* the conference. Instructions for preparing and submitting the final versions (camera-ready papers) of all accepted papers will be available later on. All the other papers (short papers, abstracts of the oral presentations, abstracts for the poster presentations) will be published on the MOD 2017 web site.

MOD uses the single session formula of 30 minutes presentations for fruitful exchanges between authors and participants.

Best Paper Awards
Springer sponsors the MOD 2017 Best Paper Award with a cash prize of EUR 1,000.
The Award will be conferred at the conference on the authors of the best paper award.

MOD is a premier forum for presenting and discussing current research in machine learning, optimization and big data. Therefore, at least one author of each accepted paper must complete the conference registration and present the paper at the conference, in order for the paper to be included in the proceedings and conference program.
