Submission Deadline: 30 April 2020
IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Utility Pattern Mining: Theoretical Analytics and Applications.
Utility pattern mining from data has received a lot of attention from the Knowledge Discovery in Data Mining (KDD) community due to the high potential impact in many applications such as finance, biomedicine, manufacturing, e-commerce and social media. Current research in utility mining primarily focuses on discovering patterns of high value (e.g. high profit) in large databases, and analyzing/learning important factors (e.g. economic factors) in a data mining process. One of the popular applications of utility mining is the analysis of large transactional databases to discover high-utility itemsets, which consist of sets of items that generate a high profit when purchased together.
This Special Section in IEEE Access aims at bringing together academic and industrial researchers and practitioners from data mining, machine learning and other interdisciplinary communities, in a collaborative effort to identify and discuss major technical challenges, recent results and potential topics on the emerging fields of Utility-Pattern Mining, by focusing especially on theoretical analytics and applications. Studies about real-world experiences, inherent challenges, and new research methods/applications are also welcome.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
This Special Section is also published in cooperation with the second “Utility-Driven Mining and Learning (UDML)” workshop held at IEEE ICDM 2019. Important articles from the UDML workshop will be invited for this Special Section, provided that each article has less than 35% similarity to the author’s previous work.
We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
