Call for Papers

The 7th International Workshop on New Frontiers in Mining Complex Patterns
in conjunction with the European Conference on Machine Learning and 
Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML PKDD), 
to be held in Skopje, Macedonia from September 18th to 22nd, 2017. 

Modern automatic systems are able to collect huge volumes of data, often 
with a complex structure (e.g. multi-table data, XML data, web data, 
time series and sequences, graphs and trees). The massive and complex 
data pose new challenges for current research in Knowledge Discovery and 
Data Mining. They require new methods for storing, managing and 
analysing them by taking into account various complexity aspects: 
Complex structures (e.g. multi-relational, time series and sequences, 
networks, and trees) as input/output of the data mining process; Massive 
amounts of high dimensional data collections flooding as high-speed 
streams and requiring (near) real time processing and model adaptation 
to concept drifts; New application scenarios involving security issues, 
interaction with other entities and real-time response to events 
triggered by sensors.

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers and 
practitioners of data mining and machine learning interested in analysis 
of complex data. We welcome submissions focusing on recent advances and 
latest developments in the analysis of complex and massive data sources 
such as blogs, event or log data, medical data, spatio-temporal data, 
social networks, mobility data, sensor data and streams. Submissions 
discussing and introducing new algorithmic foundations and 
representation formalisms in complex pattern discovery are also welcome. 
We encourage submissions from the areas of statistics, machine learning 
and big data analytics, which present techniques that take advantage of 
the informative richness of complex massive data for efficiently and 
effectively identifying new patterns. Finally, submissions describing 
preliminary and promising studies are also welcome.

Topics of Interest
NFMCP 2017 calls for international contributions related to foundations, 
challenges and research opportunities raised by real-world learning and 
data mining problems in which the data as well as patterns are complex 
and heterogeneous. The goal of the workshop is to promote and publish 
research in the field of complex pattern mining. Suggested topics 
include (but not limited to) the following:
•    Foundations on pattern mining, pattern usage, and pattern understanding
•    Mining stream, time-series and sequence data
•    Mining networks and graphs
•    Mining biological data
•    Mining dynamic and evolving data
•    Mining environmental and scientific data
•    Mining heterogeneous and ubiquitous data
•    Mining multimedia data
•    Mining multi-relational data
•    Mining semi-structured and unstructured data
•    Mining spatio-temporal data
•    Mining big data
•    Social media analytics
•    Ontology and metadata
•    Privacy preserving mining
•    Semantic web and Knowledge databases

Keynote Speech
To be defined.

Submission Instructions
Authors are invited to submit electronically original research papers 
and extended abstracts in Portable Document Format (PDF). Research 
papers should be at most 12 pages long whereas extended abstracts should 
be at most 8 pages long.

Papers must be written in English. Paper should be submitted in PDF form 
via NFMCP 2017 Online Submission System.
Submitted papers will be evaluated by three reviewers.

Acceptance will be based on relevance, technical soundness, originality, 
and clarity of presentation. Accepted papers and extended abstracts will 
be published in the proceedings of the workshop.
Papers must be formatted using the Lecture Notes in Computer Science 
style available at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html .

Springer Book and Journal Special Issue: As in the previous editions, it 
is planned to publish revised accepted papers as a volume in the 
Springer LNCS/LNAI series and to consider a set of papers from the 
workshop relevant to the topic for a special issue of the Journal of 
Intelligent Information Systems (Springer)

Important Dates
