Call For Papers

AI*IA Workshop on Mining Complex Patterns (MCP 2011)
Palermo, Italy, September 17, 2011

in conjunction with the XII International Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence,
AI*IA 2011 Palermo Italy, September 15-17, 2011

Call For Papers

During the last two decades, studies in Machine Learning have paved the way to the definition of efficient and stable data mining and knowledge discovery algorithms. Data mining and knowledge discovery can today be considered as stable fields with numerous efficient algorithms which have been proposed in order to extract knowledge in different forms from data. Although, most existing data mining approaches look for patterns in tabular data (which are typically obtained from relational databases), algorithmic extensions are recently investigated to massive datasets representing complex interactions between several entities from a variety of sources. These interactions may be spanned at multiple levels of granularity as well as at the spatial and/or temporal dimension.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners of data mining who are interested in the advances and latest developments in area of extracting complex patterns from text/hypertext data, networks and graphs, event or log data, biological sequences, spatio-temporal data, sensor data and streams, and so on. In particular, the workshop aims at integrating recent results from existing fields such as data mining, statistics, machine learning and relational databases to discuss and introduce new algorithmic foundations and representation formalisms in pattern discovery.

Topics of interest
MCP 2011 calls for international contributions related to foundations, challenges and research opportunities raised by real-world learning and data mining problems in which the data as well as patterns are complex and heterogeneous. The goal of the workshop is to promote and publish research in the field of the complex pattern mining. Suggested topics include (but not limited to) the following:
- Foundations on pattern mining, pattern usage, and pattern understanding
- Mining stream, time-series and sequence data
- Mining networks, graphs and trees
- Mining dynamic and evolving data
- Mining environmental and scientific data
- Mining heterogeneous data
- Mining multi-relational data
- Mining semi-structured and unstructured data
- Mining spatio-temporal data
- Mining linked, social and webdata
- Ontology and metadata
- Privacy preserving mining
- Semantic Web and Knowledge Databases

Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit electronically original research and abstract papers in Portable Document Format (PDF) format.
Research papers should be at most 12 pages long whereas extended abstract should be at most 8 pages long.
Papers must be written in English.
Paper should be submitted via the MCP 2011 Online Submission System: .
Submitted papers will be evaluated by three reviewers. Acceptance will be based on relevance, technical soundness, originality, and clarity of presentation.
