Call for Papers IJCNN 2015 Special Session "Clustering and Co-clustering"

Special Session for IEEE IJCNN 2015.

Updated submission deadline: 5 February, 2015.

Description

Everyday, huge amounts of data are generated by users via the web, social networks, etc. Clustering/Coclustering techniques are a tool of choice to help organize the huge collections of data that increasingly beset us. Clustering/Coclustering is an unsupervised learning approach that allows one to discover global structures in the data (i.e. clusters). Given a dataset, it identifies different data subsets which are hopefully meaningful. The discovered clusters are deemed interesting if they are while instances within each (co)cluster share similar features. This (co)clustering problem has motivated a huge body of work and has resulted in a large number of algorithms. (Co)Clustering has thus been used in numerous real-life application domains such as marketing, city planning, and so forth.

Clustering algorithms are a tool of choice to explore these high-dimensional data sets. However numerous questions remain open as:
  • What are the last advances in
    • supervised clustering that combines the main characteristics of both traditional clustering and supervised classification tasks?
    • quality criteria?
    • clustering for big data?
    • evolving clustering?
    • clustering events or time series?

This special session offers a meeting opportunity for academics and industry researchers belonging to the communities of Computational Intelligence, Machine Learning, Experimental Design, and Data Mining to discuss new areas of (co)clustering, One goal of this special session will be two-fold: On the one hand, to look for new algorithms and techniques proposals based on (co)clustering. On the other hand, to look for new application domains, real problems, where the application of (co)clustering have demonstrated an outstanding performance or interpretation abilities against other traditional approaches.

Publication opportunities: Papers should be submitted to IJCNN. We encourage papers that describe new algorithm and applications of (co)clustering in real-world. In the industrial context, the main difficulties met and the original solutions developed, have to be described.

Paper acceptance and publication will be judged on the basis of their quality and relevance to the special session themes, clarity of presentation, originality and accuracy of results and proposed solutions.

The set of proposed topics includes, but is not limited to::
  • Clustering, Coclustering
  • Supervised Clustering (Coclustering)
  • Semi-Supervised Clustering (Coclustering)
  • Quality Criteria for Clustering (Coclustering)
  • Measure of Variable Importance for a Clustering (Coclustering)
  • Automatic tuning of Cluster Number (Cocluster Number)
  • Clustering for Big Data
  • Method to assess the evolution of a Clustering (Coclustering)
  • Constrainted Clustering (Coclustering)
The list of application domain is includes, but it is not limited to:
  • Evolving textual information analysis
  • Evolving social network analysis
  • Dynamic process control and tracking
  • Intrusion and anomaly detection
  • Genomics and DNA micro-array data analysis
  • Adaptive recommender and filtering systems

Vincent Lemaire (Orange Labs, France, vincent.lemaire@orange.com) was born in 1968 and he obtained his undergraduate degree from the University of Paris 12 in signal processing and was in the same period an Electronic Teacher. He obtained a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Paris 6 in 1999. He thereafter joined the R&D Division of France Telecom where he became a senior expert in data-mining. His research interests are the application of machine learning in various areas for telecommunication companies with an actual main application in data mining for business intelligence. He developed exploratory data analysis and classification interpretation tools. Active learning and data-space exploration are now his main research interests. He obtained his Research Accreditation (HDR) in Computer Science from the University of Paris-Sud 11 (Orsay) in 2008.
