MMAML 2010 (call for papers in pdf)

Special Session on Multiple Model Approach to Machine Learning

at the 2nd Asian Conference on Intelligent Information and Database Systems  (ACIIDS 2010)

Hue City, Vietnam 24 – 26 March 2010

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 2010 Special Session at the 2nd Asian Conference on Intelligent Information and Database Systems (ACIIDS 2010) 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 2010 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
  • Model and feature selection in multiple model machine learning
  • Diversity, accuracy and stability issues
  • Hybrid ensembles
  • Hybrid methods in prediction and classification
  • Time factor in ensemble models
  • Multi-objective ensemble models
  • Ensemble methods in agent and multi-agent systems
  • Newest methods for generating ensembles
  • Implementations of ensemble learning algorithms
  • Assessment and statistical analysis of ensemble models
  • Applications of ensemble methods in business, engineering, medicine, etc.

Successful MMAML 2010

MMAML 2010 was the biggest special session held by ACIIDS 2010. 35 papers were submitted to the Special Session and majority of them were of a good quality. According to the rigorous Springer’s rules 13 best quality papers (i.e. 35%) were accepted to be orally presented at the MMAML 2010 special session and published in the LNAI volumes 5990&5991. Moreover, next 5 papers have been selected for poster presentation and the edited book published in the Springer Series of Studies in Computational Intelligence, vol. 283. The authors of all 18 accepted papers represent scientific centers from 15 countries: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Poland, Spain, Taiwan, and Vietnam..

Post-conference pubication in NGC

Ten best papers presented during MMAML 2010 were invited to special issue "Hybrid and Ensemble Methods in Machine Learning" of the prestigious journal New Generation Computing which will be published in 2011.
