Special Session on Mining and Learning from Dynamic Graphical Networks (MLDGN) 2012

2nd Call for Papers

as part of the
14th International Conference on
Information Processing and Management of Uncertainty in Knowledge-Based Systems (IPMU) 2012

Catania, Italy, July 9 - 13, 2012
Submission Deadline: January 15, 2012

Scope and Objectives

There is a great necessity and interest in analyzing dynamic graphs like the World Wide Web, social networks, or biological networks. Typically analysis methods from classical data mining and network theory have been studied separately in different fields of research. The main goal of this session is to boost interdisciplinary research by combining techniques of different fields.

The session topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

Paper Submissions

IPMU-2012 solicits original research contributions of theoretical and methodological nature as well as application-oriented work. IPMU-2012 will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review or has already been accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Authors are also expected not to submit their papers elsewhere during the review period. Contributions will be selected based upon their quality as evaluated by 2-3 referees.

The paper must be written in English and formatted according to the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes guidelines. Author instructions and style files can be downloaded at Springer-Verlag.

The length of papers is at most 10 pages in this format. Please note that the submission format is PDF only. Papers must be submitted electronically via EasyChair. Existing EasyChair accounts can be used.

When submitting a paper for the special session MLDGN 2012, there will be a possibility to indicate whether the paper fits the topic of this special session (called "groups" in EasyChair). This is simply done by ticking the corresponding box for MLDGN 2012. Please note that you can tick any number of boxes (including 0).
