Call for Papers IJCNN 2015 Special Session "Emerging Methodologies for Big Data Integration"

Over the years, huge quantities of data have been generated by large-scale scientific experiments (biomedical, “omic”, imaging, astronomical, etc.), big industrial companies and on the web. One of the main characteristics of such Big Data is that they are multi-view, i.e. there are multiple sources (in the “omics” sciences, experiments related to mRNA, miRNA etc.), relate the same patterns (in this case patients) or multi-domain (in biomedical applications for examples, “omics, imaging and clinical data).

As a consequence, new methodologies based on neural networks, machine and statistical learning, computation Intelligence and others, have been proposed to integrate these kinds of big data and to elicit relevant information to infer novel models and correlations.

The aim of the special session is to solicit new approaches to real world scientific and industrial big data integration, as well as applications of above mentioned Big Data methodologies.


Papers must present original work or review the state-of-the-art in the following non-exhaustive list of topics:
  • Multi-view learning
  • Multi-view clustering
  • data fusion
  • data integration 
  • multi-view data applications 
  • multi domain data applications


All the submissions will be peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for other contributed papers.

Perspective authors will submit their papers through the IJCNN2015 conference submission system at

Please make sure to select the Special Session "Emerging Methodologies for Big Data Integration " from the "S. SPECIAL SESSION TOPICS" name in the "Main Research topic" dropdown list;

Templates and instructions for authors will be provided on the IJCNN webpage

All papers submitted to the special sessions will be subject to the same peer-review procedure as regular papers, accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
