UDM 2018, Call for Paper
The 1st International Workshop on Utility-Driven Mining
Held in conjunction with the 24th ACM SIGKDD Conference (KDD 2018), August 20, 2018, London, United Kingdom
Scope of the Workshop
Utility-driven mining and learning from data has received emerging attentions from KDD communities due to its high potential in wide applications, covering finance, biomedicine, manufacturing, e-commerce, social media, etc. Current research topics in utility-driven mining focused primarily on discovering patterns of high value (eg, high profit) in large databases, or analyzing/learning the important factors (eg, economic factors) in the data mining process. One of the popular applications of utility mining is the analysis of large transactional databases to discover high-utility itemsets, which consist of sets of items that generate a high profit when purchased together.
The workshop aims at bringing together academic and industrial researchers and practitioners from data mining, machine learning and other interdisciplinary communities, in the collaborative effort of identifying and discussing major technical challenges, recent results and potential topics on the emerging fields of Utility-Driven Mining. This workshop will focus on real world experiences, inherent challenges, as well as new research methods/applications desired.
The Utility-Driven Mining (UDM) workshop will discuss a broad variety of topics related to utility-driven mining, including:
- Theory and core methods for utility mining and learning
- Utility patterns mining in large datasets, e.g., high-utility itemset mining, high-utility sequential patterns/rules mining, high-utility episode mining, and other novel patterns
- Analysis and learning of novel utility factors in mining and learning process
- Predictive modeling/learning, clustering and link analysis that incorporate utility factors
- Incremental utility mining and learning
- Utility mining and learning in streams
- Utility mining and learning in uncertain systems
- Utility mining and learning in big data
- Knowledge representations for utility patterns
- Privacy preserving utility mining/learning
- Visualization techniques for utility mining/learning
- Open-source software/libraries/platform
- Innovative applications in interdisciplinary domains, like finance, biomedicine, healthcare, manufacturing, e-commerce, social media, education, etc.
- New, open, or unsolved problems in utility-driven mining
The workshop will be held on August 19th 2018 in London (United Kingdom) at the KDD 2018 conference.
Submissions are limited to 9 pages, and must formatted according to the Standard ACM Conference Proceedings Template.
Papers will be evaluated based on the evaluation criteria of the main KDD 2018 conference for research papers.
In particular, papers must present original research that is not under consideration in other journals, conferences and workshops.
The submission procedure will be announced soon.
