First Call for Papers

         Workshop on New Learning Frameworks and Models for BigData

       During IEEE international conference on BigData
             6 October 2013, Silicon Valley, USA


Huge amounts of data are now easily and legally available on the Web. 
This data is generally heterogeneous and merely structured. Machine 
learning models which have been developed to automatically retrieve, 
classify or cluster observations on large yet homogeneous data 
collections have to be rethought. Indeed, many challenging problems, 
inevitably associated to Big Data, have manifested the needs for 
tradeoffs between the two conflicting goals of speed and accuracy. This 
has led to some recent initiatives in both theory and practice and has 
highly motivated the interest of the Machine Learning community. Further 
theoretical challenges include how to tackle problems with large number 
of target classes, appropriate optimization techniques to handle big 
data problems. Structured/sequential prediction models for big data 
problems such as prediction in hierarchy of classes has also gained 
importance in recent years.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together research studies aiming 
at developing new machine learning tools to handle new challenges 
associated to Big Data mining. We are especially interested on the 
following topics:

      o Distributed on-line learning
      o Multi-task learning for big data
      o Transfer Learning for big data
      o Optimization techniques for large-scale learning
      o Handling large number of target classes in big data
      o Structured prediction models in big data
      o Speed/Accuracy tradeoffs in big data
      o Statistical inference for big data
      o Noise in Big data


Please submit your electronic submissions at


no later than July the 30th, 2013. All papers accepted for workshops 
will be included in the Workshop Proceedings published by the IEEE 
Computer Society Press, made available at the Conference. All 
submissions must be in PDF format and particular care should be taken to 
ensure that your paper prints well. Some accepted papers will be 
selected for edition into a book.
