ICAE Journal


Special Issue: Data Mining in Engineering

Guest Editors: Rudolf Kruse, Michael Beer and Lotfi A. Zadeh

Topics of Interest

Advancements in technology are a permanent driver for developments in engineering.
But, at the same time, these advancements have introduced problems of a new type.
One of these problems is the growing amount of data available to derive engineering
decisions. In many practical applications the amount and complexity of data are so
huge that decisive characteristics cannot be retrieved with reasonable effort,
computational resources and time. For example, sensor and monitoring technology can
provide data from engineering processes, systems and structures depending on
spatial and time coordinates with almost arbitrary resolution. Fast or on-line
decision-making or process control is then critical due to a demanding data
analysis. Computational results are increasingly available in form of multi-
dimensional samples from stochastic simulations, which challenges the engineer in
identifying the most important dependencies and effects. Also, decision-making in
management and strategy may involve this problem when pursued with web-based data
collections of almost unlimited size and diversity. Surveillance data in the area
of safety, security and defense possess a complexity which makes a fast evaluation
difficult. To solve these problems, innovative concepts from Computer Science and
Mathematics are increasingly implemented in engineering solutions. This Special
Issue is focused on both theoretical and practical contributions dealing with large
amounts of complex data from an engineering, computer science and mathematics

Submission Guidelines

ICAE is a scholarly research journal with a primary focus on novel computational
modeling. Papers describing software development projects are not suitable.
Authors are invited to contact the Guest Editors and indicate their intent to
submit a paper for possible publication in the special issue as soon as possible.
All papers will be peer-reviewed for originality by at least 3 referees on the
journal's standard review form. Submission of a manuscript implies that it is the
authors’ original unpublished work and the manuscript or any variation of it has
not been submitted for publication elsewhere previously. Please email the pdf file
of your original manuscript by September 6, 2010 to
