Subject: Special Issue of IJFCS: Mining The Web
MINING THE WEB Special Issue of INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF FOUNDATIONS OF COMPUTER SCIENCE >>>>> First Call For Papers <<<<< As the Internet evolves and expands at an explosive rate, it provides both great opportunities and grand challenges (and perhaps killer applications) for data mining. In most major Internet application domains, such as information presentations and exchanges, e-commerce, and search engines, data mining has been applied and successful cases have been reported. However, data mining application to the web is still in the process of "crossing the chasm". Many difficult problems need to be solved, such as huge sizes of data with mixed and rich types, lack of standard procedures for various business problems, integrating data mining with existing web application systems, and the privacy issue. If Internet is to become a killer application for data mining, those issues must be resolved effectively so the benefits (e.g., return of investment) of data mining becomes obvious to Internet companies. It is, therefore, of special interest and urgency to expand our knowledge on data mining applications to Internet, which is this special issue of IJFCS planned for. We urge authors to submit papers on any topics of data mining applications to the Internet, including but not limited to: -- Data mining for e-commerce (product recommendation, direct marketing, customer retention, etc.) -- Data mining for information presentation (webpage classification, knowledge extraction from webpages or for search engines) -- Data mining for personalization (fre-fetching, adaptation, etc.) -- Mining web logs Schedule for the Special Issue of IJFCS on Mining the Web: -- Submission deadline: May 1, 2001 -- Decision on acceptance: Sept 1, 2001. Please submit electronic copy in Postscript, PDF, or MS Word (strongly encouraged), or five copies of your manuscript, to one of the guest editors: Charles Ling, Univ of Western Ontario, email@example.com Nick Cercone, University of Waterloo, firstname.lastname@example.org Updates of the Special Issue of IJFCS on Mining the Web can be found at http://www.csd.uwo.ca/faculty/ling/IJFCS/cfp.html
