Call for papers: Advances in Mining, Modelling, and Managing Complex Data

Call for papers: Advances in Mining, Modelling, and Managing Complex Data

A special issue of International Journal of Data Mining, Modelling and Management

The problem of mining, modelling and managing complex data arising in data- and knowledge-intensive next-generation information systems plays a critical role in actual database and information systems research. Complex data are characterised by several and heterogeneous formats: transactional data, multidimensional data, hierarchical data, semi-structured data, biological data, ontological data, streaming data, trajectory data, moving object data, and so forth.

Traditional models, techniques and algorithms for representing, querying and mining conventional data sets (e.g., relational ones) are widely recognised as inadequate to cope with challenges posed by processing complex data. Therefore, designing and developing suitable models, techniques and algorithms for processing complex data has become an emerging challenge in actual database and information systems research.

This trend has also been dictated and stirred-up by the recent explosion of complex intelligent information systems, which are becoming increasingly popular in a wide range of application scenarios ranging from complex database/data-mining systems to data-warehouse/business-intelligence systems, from grid computing to peer-to-peer computing, from biological data management tools to ontology-based complex tools, etc.

Inspired by this breaking evidence, this special issue welcomes papers focused on all topics ranging in the wide spectrum of mining, modelling and managing complex data, with emphasis on both theoretical aspects as well as practical frameworks and implementations. Apart from regular papers, this issue will also contain papers selected from leading conferences related to the scientific field of database and information systems research.

Recommended topic areas include, but are not limited to, research and practical issues on mining, modelling, and managing complex data, in the following contexts:
  • Complex information systems
  • Intelligent information systems
  • Advanced database systems
  • Advanced data warehouse systems
  • Advanced data mining systems
  • Information processing systems
  • Information retrieval systems
