Call for Papers Special Session
May, 28, 2012 (deadline)

July, 25-27, 2012, ROME (Italy)

Organization: Andreas HOLZINGER - Gabriella PASI - Tanja SCHULTZ - Hugo 

Papers should be submitted electronically via the web-based submission

We are confronted with increased masses of data - in all domains. 
Research in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Information Retrieval 
(IR), Knowledge Discovery in Databases and Data Mining (KDD), has long 
been working to develop methods that help end users to identify, 
extract, visualize and understand useful information from huge masses of 
high dimensional and often weakly structured data. Our goal is to 
combine those efforts to support professional end users to interactively 
analyse information properties and to visualize the most relevant parts 
without getting overwhelmed. Ideally we speak of HI-CI - Human 
intelligence (HI) meets Computational intelligence (CI) by making 
computational methodologies and approaches interactively accessible to 
the domain expert to solve complex problems in the real world.
The challenge is to enable effective human control over powerful machine 
algorithms and to integrate statistical methods and information 
visualization, so as to support human insight, discoveries, and decision 
making - primary research objectives in the field of Human-Computer 

  Some hot topics of future research include but are not limited to: 
Human-Computer Interaction and ...
* ... Multimedia Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery (e.g. in high 
dimensional, weakly structured and non-standardized data)
* ... Swarm Intelligence (collective intelligence) and collaborative 
Knowledge Discovery/Data Mining/Decision Making
* ... Intelligent, interactive multivariate Information Visualization 
and Visual Analytics
* ... Multimedia Data Exploration and interactive Knowledge Visualization
* ... Time-Oriented Data and Information (e.g. longitudinal data and 
complex noisy time series data)
* ... Novel Search User Interaction Techniques
* ... Future Interaction Techniques (Note: science fiction today is 
science fact of tomorrow)
* ... Modeling of Human Search Behavior and Understanding Human 
Information Needs
* ... Methods and Methodologies (e.g. Support Vector Machines, Entropy 
Modeling, ...)
* ... Text Mining and Intelligent Information Extraction.

Papers accepted to special sessions have the same benefits as the 
conference papers, such as:
- Published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on 
paper and on CD-ROM support
- Proceedings submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference 
Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and EI (Elsevier Index).
- All papers presented at the venue will be available at the SciTePress 
Digital Library ( SciTePress 
is member of CrossRef (
- The papers may be selected to a book published by Springer-Verlag in a 
CCIS Series book, or in the Journal of Information Processing Systems 
(JIPS) or in the Journal of Networks (JNW).
The special session is part of the main conference - see main conference 
page: ICETE DATA 2012

These are our special session deadlines that should be followed:
Paper Submission: May 28, 2012
  Reviewing Process Deadline: June 11, 2012
Authors Notification: June 13, 2012
  Final Paper Submission and Registration: June 22, 2012

See you in beautiful Roma Aeterna!
