IEA/AIE 2009 Special Sessions
Special Session 3: Mining Interesting Knowledge (MIK)
  Li‐Shiang Tsay, North Carolina A&T State University, USA
Zbigniew W. Ras, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, USA
General description
  The MIK Special Session focuses on issues of discovering interesting and actionable knowledge from data. Theoretical advances, algorithms and systems, and application cases that make efforts to derive interesting knowledge from data are welcome contributions.
  One of the main goals of KDD is to find nuggets of useful knowledge that could influence or help users in a decision making process. This task can be viewed as searching in an immense space for possible workable, concrete, and profitable strategies to the decision‐maker. In the last decade, KDD algorithms have made a tremendous progress and have been demonstrated to be of significant value in a variety of real‐world applications. Nevertheless, there is a gap between the discovered patterns and the formulated solutions. Currently, this gap is filled by manual or semi‐automatic analysis, which is time consuming, biased, limits the efficiency of KDD overall process and capabilities.
Topics of interests
  The session invites papers on all aspects of diminishing the gap between the discovered results and actual action plans, including, but not limited to:
1. Intelligent Agent Technology
2. Intelligent Information Systems
3. Knowledge Representation and Integration
4. Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
5. Knowledge Visualization
Paper submission
  Authors are invited to electronically submit their paper, written in English, of up to 10 single spaced pages, presenting the results of original research or innovative practical applications relevant to the conference. Practical experiences with state‐of‐the‐art AI methodologies are also acceptable when they reflect lessons of unique value to the conference attendees. Shorter works, up to 6 pages, to be presented in 10 minutes, may be submitted as SHORT PAPERS representing work in progress or suggesting possible research directions. All paper should be submitted to Prof. Li‐Shiang Tsay ( Please submit only a pdf version of your paper which MUST BE in LNAI format available at
