*** FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS ***


Workshop "MIND 2011 (Mining Complex Entities from Network and  
Biomedical Data)"


Co-located with ECML/PKDD 2011, European Conference on Machine  
Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases

Friday 9th September 2011, Athens, Greece

http://www.di.uniba.it/~loglisci/MIND2011/
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SCOPE:

The emphasis of this workshop is on the methodological, technological
and applicative challenges when extracting unstructured data in
heterogeneous information networks in order to mine complex entities and
relations. In tandem, this workshop is intended to address the key
challenges in mining information from biomedical resources. Data and
text mining of biomedical resources can offer new knowledge and
capabilities such as (semi-)automated extraction of new biological
interactions, learning and visualization of complex biological networks,
identification of new domain concepts, synonyms and alternative
definitions, and summarization or extraction of the most important
information from the related scientific literature. 

We are hopeful to bring together researchers and  
practitioners from the areas of Data Mining, Text Mining, Information  
Extraction, and Machine Learning working on network-represented data,  
such as Biomedical data.

SUBMISSION

We will allow for full papers to be presented orally at 20-minute slots,
and short papers, to be presented as posters in the poster sessions. The
submitted articles should follow the ECML/PKDD paper format and should
not exceed 12 pages in the case of full papers and 6 pages in the case
of short papers. 

Authors of selected workshop papers with application to heterogeneous information networks 
or social networks will be invited to submit an extended version to the International Journal of Social Network Mining (IJSNM).

Authors of selected workshop papers with application to biomedical data
will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of the
Journal of Biomedical Semantics.
