Call For Papers

Data stream mining gained in importance over the last years because it is indispensable for many real applications such as prediction and evolution of weather phenomena; security and anomaly detection in networks; evaluating satellite data; and mining health monitoring streams. Stream mining algorithms must take account of the unique properties of stream data: infinite data, temporal ordering, concept drifts and shifts, demand for scalability etc.

Learning on streams has followed two threads thus far: mining (classification, clustering, frequent itemset discovery) and probabilistic modeling. In both threads, scholars devise solutions to the above problems. Stream clustering algorithms are more oriented towards scalability and tracing of model changes, while dynamic probabilistic modeling, e.g. dynamic topic modeling, encompasses methods that adapt seamlessly to drifts. At the same time, research on unsupervised stream learning seems to be scattered along the many application areas. Examples of areas that seem to evolve independently are sensor mining, mining on clickstreams and other logs in stream form, topic modeling on document streams, and temporal mining on data that are actually streams. With this workshop, we attempt to bring together the advances on those complementary areas.

Suggested topics:

* Clustering and classification on streams
* Probabilistic modeling on dynamic data
* Frequent itemset discovery on streams
* Dealing with concept drift
* Change and novelty detection on streams
* Scalable stream mining algorithms
* Visual analytics on streams

We particularly solicit works for challenging application areas, such as:

* Security
* Assisted living
* Patient monitoring
* Traffic monitoring
* Recommendation engines
* Customer lifetime management
