Call For Papers

The progress of computer science has caused that many institutions collected huge amount of data, which analysis is impossible by human beings. Nowadays simple methods of data analysis are not sufficient for efficient management of an average enterprise, since for smart decisions the knowledge hidden in data is highly required. The great disadvantage of aforementioned methods is that they “assume” that statistical properties of the discovered concept (which model is predicted) are being unchanged. In real situation we could observe so-called concept drift, therefore designing data mining methods, especially classification ones for data streams is currently focus of intense research. On the other hand, we usually can use number of classifiers for each of pattern recognition task which are differ each other therefore developing combined classifiers have been mentioned as ones of the most promising trends in the pattern recognition which can exploit unique elementary classifier strengths and could adapt to the changes of classification model.
Papers describing original work in the following and related research topics are welcome:

Adaptive and incremental learning
Detecting concept change
Theoretical foundations of multiple classifier systems
Methods of classifier fusion
Method of decision making based on the information from different sources
Methods of improving qualities of weak classifiers (boosting, bagging, etc.)
Method of measuring and ensuring diversity in classifier ensembles
Applications (especially from medical area but not only limited to)
