Call for Papers


What is Data Mining and the GOAL of this track?

Data mining is the process of extracting hidden patterns from data. As more data is gathered, data mining is becoming an increasingly important tool to transform this data into information. It is commonly used in a wide range of profiling services, such as marketing, surveillance, fraud detection and scientific discovery (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_mining). This special track will be devoted to data mining with the aim of presenting new and important contributions.


What kind of studies will be of interest?

Papers and contributions are encourages for any work relating to Data Mining. Topics of interest may include (but are in no way limited to):

1.      Applications such as Intelligence analysis, medical and health applications, text, video, and multi-media mining, E-commerce and web data, financial data analysis, intrusion detection, remote sensing, earth sciences, and astronomy.

2.      Modeling algorithms such as hidden Markov, decision trees, neural networks, statistical methods, or probabilistic methods; case studies in areas of application, or over different algorithms and approaches.

3.      Feature extraction and selection.

4.      Post-processing techniques such as visualization, summarization, or trending.

5.      Preprocessing and data reduction.

6.      Data engineering or warehousing.

Note: We invite original papers (i.e. work not previously submitted, in submission, or to be submitted to another conference during the reviewing process).


Other tracks at FLAIRS that may be on interest to those submitting to this track include Learning in Intelligent Systems, in a total of 13 special tracks that accompany the main conference.


Submission Guidelines for the DM track

Interested authors must submit completed manuscripts by November 22, 2009. Submissions should be no more than 6 pages (approx. 4000 words) in length, including figures. Anonymous author names and affiliations must be used on submitted papers, to provide double-blind reviewing. Papers must be submitted as a PDF through the EasyChair conference system. (Note: Do not use an anonymous name for your EasyChair login - your EasyChair account information is hidden from reviewers.) Papers should be formatted according to AAAI Guidelines. Submission instructions can be found at the FLAIRS-2010 website given above. Notification of acceptance will be mailed around January, 2010. Authors of accepted papers will be expected to submit the final camera-ready copies of their full papers by February, 2010 for publication in the conference proceedings which will be published by AAAI Press.

Special Tracks

Call for Special Tracks

Special tracks, held in parallel with the general conference, are an integral part of the conference. They provide researchers in focused areas the opportunity to meet and present their work, and offer a forum for interaction among the broader community of artificial intelligence researchers. Their papers are required to meet the same standards and are published in the conference proceedings.

Topics of interest are in all areas related to artificial intelligence. For example, last year's special tracks included: AI Education; AI Planning and Scheduling; Applied Natural Language Processing; Case-Based Reasoning; Data Mining; Design, Evaluation, and Refinement of Intelligent Systems (DERIS); Games and Entertainment; Intelligent Tutoring Systems; Semantics, Ontologies, and Computational Linguistics; and Uncertain Reasoning.

We encourage proposals for topics that have run previously. Even special tracks that have run for a number of years may need or benefit from new leadership support and perspective, so please do not hesitate to indicate interest in an area, or to contact the Special Tracks Coordinator if you have questions about proposing on a particular topic. We are also particularly interested in fresh tracks in areas such as Machine Learning or AI in English as a Second Language, but all proposals for tracks are very much encouraged.

Submission of proposals for special tracks is now invited. Proposals must be submitted via the EasyChair conference management site for FLAIRS-23. Special track chairs may submit to their own tracks. Those papers will be reviewed by two members of the special track's program committee and two members of the general conference program committee, and acceptance decisions will be made by the conference program co-chairs. Proposals must include the following information:
