*** The 4th International Conference on Behavioral, Economic,
   and Socio-Cultural Computing -  16-18 October, 2017 (BESC 2017) ***

  AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow, POLAND,


** Conference Scope **

Data mining, machine learning, statistical analytics and data science 
techniques are being widely adopted in the industrial field. The goal of 
the BESC 2017 Application Track is to bring together data mining 
researchers, industrial practitioners, business analysts, marketing, 
finance, behavioral, economic, social and psychological areas to achieve 
knowledge and technical achievement transfer across the boundaries 
between behavioral, economic and socio-cultural areas.

The Application Track of 2017 International Conference on Behavioral, 
Economic, and Socio-Cultural Computing (BESC 2017) seeks submissions in 
all submission categories (6-page full paper, 2-page short paper, and 
2-page demo paper) to showcase emerging techniques and advanced ideas in 
application, to discuss future trends and challenges with practical 
implication, and to facilitate interactions between academia and industry.

All papers submitted to the BESC 2017 Application Track will be 
peer-reviewed and should not be submitted to another conference at the 
same time. Compared to the BESC 2017 regular track, Application Track 
papers do not necessarily need to contain major methodological advances, 
algorithmic contributions, or rigorous experimental validation. Rather, 
the emphasis will be on industrial innovations, clear practical 
relevance, interesting lessons learned through significant practice, or 
new classes of applications which might open up new venues for 
interesting academic work. Works-in-progress papers are also welcomed. 
Contributions from both industry R&D groups and the academia are welcome.

**  Topics  **

We welcome submissions on the following, but not limited to, topics:
*Data mining, artificial intelligence, statistical analytics in industry
*Consumer-driven data modeling, analysis and visualization
*Emerging applications in economic, marketing, and finance areas
*Methodologies and frameworks arising from big data with direct 
application relevance
*Machine learning and prediction from big data
*Architectures and frameworks for building large, scalable and powerful 
systems for processing and analyzing data
*Social analysis, socio studies, psychological and behavioral descriptions
*Consumer churn, consumer behaviors, and consumer forecasting
*Experiments and case studies using industry collected data
