Call For Papers

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to contribute a chapter for our upcoming volume entitled Unsupervised Learning Algorithms to be published by Springer, the largest global scientific, technical, and medical ebook publisher. The volume will be available both in print and in ebook format by late 2015/early 2016 on SpringerLink, one of the leading science portals that includes more than 8 million documents, an ebook collection with more than 160,000 titles, journal archives digitized back to the first issues in the 1840s, and more than 30,000 protocols and 290 reference works.

Below is a short description of the volume:

With the proliferation of massive amounts of unlabeled data, unsupervised learning algorithms that can automatically discover interesting and useful patterns in such data have gained popularity among researchers and practitioners. These algorithms have found numerous applications including pattern recognition, market basket analysis, web mining, social network analysis, information retrieval, recommender systems, market research, intrusion detection, and fraud detection. The difficulty of developing theoretically sound approaches that are amenable to objective evaluation has resulted in the proposal of numerous unsupervised learning algorithms over the past half-century.

The goal of this volume is to summarize the state-of-the-art in unsupervised learning. Topics of interest include:

- Feature Extraction
- Feature Selection
- Association Rule Learning
- Clustering
- Anomaly/Novelty/Outlier Detection
- Evaluation of Unsupervised Learning Algorithms
- Applications

Each contributed chapter is expected to present a novel research study, a comparative study, or a survey of the literature. Note that there will be no publication fees for accepted chapters.
