Special Session on Text Data Learning

Call for Papers

The 14th International Conference on Intelligent Data Engineering and
Automated Learning (IDEAL'2013) Hefei, Anhui, China, October 20-23,
2013 http://nical.ustc.edu.cn/ideal13/


Tremendous efforts have been devoted to developing and applying
different machine learning technologies to natural language text data,
greatly expanding the fields of information retrieval and natural
language processing, creating new areas of research. However, many
challenges remain, such as:

    how we can successfully process different natural language related
    tasks with machine learning: ranking documents, classifying text,
    clustering, summarizing, analyzing, extracting information, and so

    how we can circumvent the barrier of lacking enough annotated
    data, despite the vast quantities of unannotated data?

    how we can adapt machine learning solutions across domains,
    genres, and languages?

    how we can make full use of the characteristics of text data in
    building machine learning based solutions?

    how we can create text learning systems to process Big Data in
    distributed and parallel environments?

This special session on text data learning will provide a forum for
researchers and practitioners interested in information retrieval and
natural language processing to exchange and report their latest
findings in applying machine learning to understanding and mining
natural language text data.

Topics of Interest

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit their original and
unpublished work on all aspects of computational approaches to text
data learning and their applications, including, but not limited to:

* Supervised, unsupervised and semi-supervised machine learning
  methods applied to managing, analyzing, understanding, mining, and
  exploiting text data in both normal and "big" scale

* Computational learning technologies adapted to processing text data
  across domain, genre, language, and scale

* Intelligent text data preparation, annotation and analysis for
  effectively learning

* Data representation for text learning and inference

* Novel applications of text data learning in Internet, social,
  enterprise and mobile environments

* Empirical and theoretical comparisons of text data learning methods
  including novel evaluation methods

We especially welcome submissions on learning methods considering the
special characteristics of text data, e.g. sequential, structural, and
