Special Session on Real-World Data Mining & Data Science Applications, Challenges, and Perspectives

Call for Papers

Organizer: Mahmoud Abou-Nasr,
Adjunct Faculty at the University of Michigan Dearborn, CIS Department (Computer & Information Systems), abounasr@umich.edu

The past decade has witnessed a vast growth of the amount of data produced and the proliferation of specialized databases in a wide range of business, industrial, medical and scientific applications. Data mining is becoming an increasingly important tool in the process of knowledge discovery and the transformation of data into valuable information. The objective of this special session is to provide a forum for the data mining, data science researchers and industrial practitioners to discuss data mining and data science applications, issues, and the challenges that arise when addressing real-world problems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Enterprise knowledge management/knowledge discovery
  • Corporate planning
  • Direct marketing
  • Credit scoring
  • Forecasting
  • Automotive applications
  • Medical decision making, diagnostics
  • Bioinformatics
  • Text and image recognition

Challenges to be addressed include but are not limited to:

  • Highly skewed data sets
  • Massive and high dimensional data sets
  • Non-stationary data
  • Unknown misclassification costs
  • Missing and noisy data
  • Business process issues

 

This special session of ICDATA will cover all aspects of data mining and data science applications. The special session will be held during the ICDATA’19 conference, July 29-August 1, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. All papers should be submitted using the standard procedures for ICDATA papers. For your submission of the draft paper, please select the Track ‚RWACP – Special Session (Real-World Data Mining & Data Science Applications, Challenges…)‘ in the paper submission system

Any questions should be directed to the special session organizer or to the chair of the ICDATA conference.

Special Session on Data Science for Cybersecurity

Call for Papers

Organizers:

In recent years, the amount of data produced across all disciplines has increased exponentially. While providing troves of valuable information, the risk of exposure to potential attacks and data loss has followed this growth. As a result, there is increasing demand to develop security analysis techniques to predict and mitigate various attacks. The goal of this interdisciplinary session is to provide a platform for data mining practitioners and cybersecurity experts to collaborate and discuss the overlap of applications, issues, and challenges.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Internet of Things (IoT) security
  • Biometric authentication
  • Intrusion Detection
  • Penetration Testing
  • Wireless networking
  • Cloud computing
  • Threat modeling

Challenges to be addressed include but are not limited to:

  • Analyzing large quantities of packet captures
  • Managing large-scale IoT networks
  • Securing biometric data
  • Blockchain transaction analysis
  • Enterprise security applications

 

The special session will be held during the ICDATA’19 conference, July 29-August 1, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. All papers should be submitted using the standard procedures for ICDATA papers. For your submission of the draft paper, please select the Track ‚DSCS – Special Session (Data Science for Cybersecurity)‘ in the paper submission system

Any questions should be directed to the special session organizer or to the chair of the ICDATA conference.
