2nd Workshop on Declarative Pattern Mining

December 10, 2012 Brussels, Belgium
Held in conjunction with
ICDM 2012: The 12th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining, December 10-13, 2012, Brussels, Belgium

The workshop has been cancelled

State-of-the-art systems for data mining contain highly efficient algorithms, however, the tasks supported are often limited. More specifically, they often lack support for solving enumeration problems other than the pre-defined ones. Their main weakness is at the language level, making it hard or impossible to:

  • add (or remove) constraints, or,
  • support slight modifications of the problem statement.

This lack of flexibility and genericity is problematic and limits the potential of existing data mining systems.

An emerging research trend is the combination of declarative modeling languages with generic and efficient solving techniques. These “declarative pattern mining” approaches are often inspired by successful methodologies from other research fields, such as databases and A.I.

This workshop aims to stimulate the cross-fertilization between data mining, artificial intelligence, combinatorial algorithmic and databases, to bring original solutions to fundamental data mining problems.

The topics covered include (but are not limited to):

  • High-level declarative languages (logical or algebraic) for expressing pattern mining problems
  • Complexity results and algorithms for pattern enumeration problems
  • Constraint-based mining
  • Mining complex patterns using constraint (logic) programming, Satisfiability (modulo theory), Integer Linear programming, …
  • Modeling complex pattern problems using itemsets
  • Classification of complex pattern mining problems
  • Use cases of complex pattern mining
  • Coupling database and pattern mining systems

Last year's edition: WDPM'2011

Paper submission

All submissions will be handled electronically via CyberChair. Paper submissions should be from 6 to 8 pages long in the IEEE 2-column format. All papers will be reviewed by the program committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance to the workshop topics, originality, significance, and clarity. Papers that do not comply with the Submission Guidelines will be rejected without review.
