Objectives and topics

Ensemble methods have gained great attention of scientific community over the last several years. Multiple models have been theoretically and empirically shown to provide significantly better performance than their single base models. Ensemble algorithms have found their application in various real word problems ranging from person recognition through medical diagnosis and text classification to financial forecasting. The MMAML 2013 Special Session at the 5th Asian Conference on Intelligent Information and Database Systems (ACIIDS 2013) is devoted to the ensemble methods and their application to classification, prediction, and clustering problems. We want to offer an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to identify new promising research directions as well as to publish recent advances in this area. The scope of the MMAML 2013 includes, but is not limited to the following topics:
  • Theoretical framework for ensemble methods
  • Ensemble learning algorithms: bagging, boosting, stacking, etc.
  • Ensemble methods in clustering
  • Dealing with large volumes of data and lack of adequate data
  • Subsampling and feature selection in multiple model machine learning
  • Diversity, accuracy, interpretability, and stability issues
  • Homogeneous and heterogeneous ensembles
  • Hybrid methods in prediction and classification
  • Ensemble methods for dealing with concept drift
  • Incremental, evolving, and online ensemble learning
  • Mining data streams using ensemble methods
  • Multi-objective ensemble learning
  • Ensemble methods in agent and multi-agent systems
  • Implementations of ensemble learning algorithms
  • Assessment and statistical analysis of ensemble models
  • Applications of ensemble methods in business, engineering, medicine, etc.

All contributions should be original and not published elsewhere or intended to be published during the review period. Authors are invited to submit their papers electronically in pdf format, using main ACIIDS 2013 submission system. Submitted papers should be prepared in Springer LNAI style and should not exceed 10 pages. To ensure high quality, all papers will be thoroughly reviewed by the MMAML 2013 International Program Committee. All accepted papers must be presented by one of the authors who must register for the conference and pay the fee. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the prestigious series LNCS/LNAI (indexed by ISI, EI, DBLP, Inspec, Scope, etc.). A selected number of accepted and personally presented papers will be expanded and revised for possible inclusion in special issues in high quality scientific journals.
