IMMM 2018 - The Eighth International Conference on Advances in Information Mining and Management

July 22, 2018 - July 26, 2018

IMMM 2018: Call for Papers

The amount of information and its complexity makes it difficult for our society to take advantage of the distributed knowledge value. Knowledge, text, speech, picture, data, opinion, and other forms of information representation, as well as the large spectrum of different potential sources (sensors, bio, geographic, health, etc.) led to the development of special mining techniques, mechanisms support, applications and enabling tools.  However, the variety of information semantics, the dynamic of information update and the rapid change in user needs are challenging aspects when gathering and analyzing information.

IMMM 2018 continues a series of academic and industrial events focusing on advances in all aspects related to information mining, management, and use.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

All topics and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.
