Xi'an, China, September 11-13, 2014

Call for paper

Over the last several years, the researchers of diverse communities focused on mining knowledge or other interested targets from structured, semi-structured, textual, multimedia or interaction data that have grown significantly. However, these massive, heterogeneous and non-synchronous data introduce significant challenges to the data, text, web, and social network mining, for example, data modeling and massive data process. How to achieve efficient, accurate, trustworthy, distributed and parallel mining results has become crucial of importance that significantly impacts its future success.

In recent years, data, text, web, and social network mining (DTWSM) has been paid an increasing attention and gained serious studies towards being successfully applied in the practice of the data incentive applications and services. DTWSM Symposium aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to address various aspects of heterogeneous data mining, such as models and technologies for statistical data analysis, Web search technology, analysis of user behavior, social network analysis, data visualization, applications that touch our daily lives, and more. Together, we will continuously explore and discuss the latest academic and industrial research results related to this domain.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  1. Theoretic foundations
  2. Statistical methods for data mining
  3. Novel models and algorithms
  4. Data pre-processing
  5. Feature extraction and selection
  6. Post-processing including quality assessment and validation
  7. Association analysis
  8. Anomaly detection
  9. Clustering / Classification

Submission Instructions

Papers submitted to DTWSM2014 should be written in English conforming to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Format(8.5" x 11", Two-Column). The paper should be submitted through the EasyChair paper submission system at the Symposium website. The length of the papers should not exceed 6 pages + 2 pages for over length charges.

Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE Conference Proceedings published by IEEE CS CPS and submitted to IEEE Xplore and CSDL. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE CS after the conference. Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after further revision, will be recommended to special issues of reputable SCI/EI-indexed journals.

Submitting a paper to DTWSM2014 means that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the Symposium and present the paper.
