June 28 - July 1, 2011,
Syracuse University, NYS, USA

Special Session:

Incremental clustering and novelty detection techniques
and their application to intelligent analysis of time varying information

PDF Version

The development of dynamic information analysis methods, like incremental clustering and novelty detection techniques, is becoming a central concern in a bunch of applications whose main goal is to deal with information which is varying over time. These applications relate themselves to very various and highly strategic domains, including web mining and adaptive information retrieval, user behaviour analysis and recommendation systems, technological and scientific survey, anomaly or intrusion detection, and even genomic information analysis, in bioinformatics. The term “incremental” is often associated to the terms dynamics, adaptive, interactive, on-line, or batch….The majority of the learning methods were initially defined in a non incremental way. However, in each familiy of these methods, were initiated incremental variants making it possible to take into account the temporal component of a data flow. In a more general way incremental clustering algorithms and novelty detection approaches are subjected to the following constraints:

The goal of this special session is to bring together researchers whose main topic is to work on innovative and challenging incremental clustering and novelty detection approaches and on their application to analysis of time varying information of various natures.

The set of proposed incremental techniques includes, but is not limited to: The list of application domain is includes, but it is not limited to:
