[PVS] CIDM'09 - Call for Special Activities

Title: CIDM'09 - Call for Special Activities


IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence 2009 (SSCI’09)

IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence and Data Mining 2009 (CIDM’09)

Nashville, Tennessee, USA, March 30 - April 2, 2009


Call for Special Sessions, Tutorials and Competitions

The 2009 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence and Data Mining (IEEE CIDM 2009, at http://www.ieee-ssci.org/) solicits proposals for special activities within the technical scope of the symposium, focusing on a special session, tutorial presentation, software presentation or competition of computational intelligence (CI) in Data Mining (DM).


Call for Special Sessions

CIDM’09 invites proposals for special sessions, to be organized by internationally recognized experts, which aim to bring together researchers in special focused topics in DM. Papers submitted to special sessions will be peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for the contributed papers. Special session proposals should include the session title, a brief description of the scope and relevance to CI and DM, a list of potential authors who might submit papers to the special session, and brief bios of the special session organizers.


Call for Tutorials

CIDM’09 invites proposals for tutorials covering fundamental and advanced topics on DM. A tutorial proposal should include title, outline, relevance to CI and DM, expected enrollment, and presenter biography. Tutorial proposal will be evaluated on its relevancy to the theoretical foundations and practical applications to computational intelligence and data mining research fields.


Call for Competitions

CIDM’09 invites proposals for the organisation of competitions to stimulate and disseminate research in CI and DM, promote fair evaluations of methods and applications, and to attract and engage academic, practitioners and students. A proposal should include a description of the problem addressed, motivation and expected impact regarding CI and DM, data description, evaluation procedures and established baselines, schedule, anticipated number of participants, and biographic information of the main team members.


Proposal Submission

Experts interested in organizing a special activity should submit a proposal in pdf format via email to: CIDM_special_activity_chair@xxxxxxxxxxx by September 21, 2008. Informal enquiries before the submission deadline are welcome.

About the IEEE CIDM’09 Conference

IEEE CIDM’09 will be held simultaneously with 20 other symposia in one location at the IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence 2009 (IEEE SSCI’09). This international event promotes all aspects of the theory and applications of computational intelligence. Sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, this event will attract top researchers, professionals, practitioners and students from around the world. The registration, which will allow participants to attend any session in any technical meeting, will also include the complete set of the proceedings of all the meetings, coffee breaks, lunches, and the banquet. The event will be held in the magical town of Nashville, Tennessee, USA, the city of country music, from March 30 - April 2, 2009.


IEEE CIDM’09 will bring together scientists, engineers and students from around the world to discuss the latest advances in the field of CI applied to issues in DM. This conference will provide a forum for the presentation of recent results in data mining algorithms, applications, software and data mining systems.


Some of the topics covered include applications of computational intelligence technologies, such as neural networks, graphical models and fuzzy systems for data modeling and data understanding, new approaches for handling uncertainty, evolutionary computation and other emerging optimization techniques in the following or similar areas:

·         CI/probabilistic/statistical/machine learning and other methods

        Data understanding, rule extraction, logical models

        Feature extraction, selection, aggregation, construction

        Multimedia data mining

        Mining of signals and data streams

        Mining spatial and spatio-temporal data

        Mining of very large datasets, scalability

        Text, graph and web mining

        Meta-learning, predictive data mining

        Visual data mining

        Case studies.

        Applications to biometrics, biomedicine, chemistry, drug design, e-commerce, engineering, finance and marketing research, intelligence, industry, remote sensing, scientific data mining, security, sensory networks and others.


We look forward to welcoming you in Nashville!
