[DMANET] CFP: The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on Data, Text, Web, and Social Network Mining (IEEE DTWSM 2015)

*The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on*

*Data, Text, Web, and Social Network Mining*

*(IEEE DTWSM 2015)*

*Helsinki, Finland, 20-22 August, 2015*

*Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication

• *IEEE Internet of Things Journal*

• *IEEE Transactions on Big Data*

• *Information Fusion (pending).*

Data mining has the power to advance different domain problems solving as a
scientific and engineering discipline. Various data including textual,
multimedia, usage records/logs and social interaction data, sourced from
different parties are studied in order to mine knowledge, track interesting
targets or figure out relationships from them. However, these massive,
heterogeneous and non-synchronous data introduce significant challenges to
the data, text, web, and social network mining, for example, generic data
modeling and massive data process. How to achieve efficient, accurate,
trustworthy, distributed and parallel mining results has become crucial of
importance that significantly impacts future success of applications
benefitted from data mining and its intelligence.

In recent years, data, text, web, and social network mining (DTWSM) has
been paid an increasing attention and gained serious studies towards being
successfully applied in the practice of the data incentive applications and
services. This workshop will continue the success of IEEE DTWSM 2014
(September 11th 2014, Xi'an, China, held in conjunction with IEEE CIT2014)
and invite proposals for contributed talks and demonstrations that
highlight novel developments in the foundations, infrastructure,
applications and implications of heterogeneous data mining. Together, we
will continuously explore and discuss the latest academic and industrial
research results related to this research area.

*Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:*

1. Theoretic foundations of heterogeneous data mining

2. Mining heterogeneous/multi-source data

3. Mining RDF graph, graph and network data

4. Mining spatial and temporal data

5. Mining unstructured and semi-structured data

6. Mining social networks

7. Mining high dimensional data

8. Mining uncertain data

9. Mining imbalanced data

10. Mining dynamic/streaming data

11. Mining scientific data

12. Visual data mining

13. Opinion mining and sentiment analysis

14. Human, domain, organizational and social factors in data mining

*Important Dates*

Paper submission deadline: May 22nd, 2015

Author notification: May 31th, 2015

Final manuscript due: July 1st, 2015

*Submission Instructions*

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference
with proceedings. Papers must be clearly presented in English, must not
exceed 8 pages, including tables, figures, references and appendixes, in
IEEE Computer Society proceedings format with Portable Document Format
(.pdf). Please submit your paper *here*

Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness,
significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Submission of a paper
should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at
least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present
the work. Selected best papers will be published in high quality
international journals.

Submitting a paper to IEEE DTWSM 2015 means that, if the paper is accepted,
at least one author should attend the workshop and present the paper.
