Special track on Relational Learning


as part of the
24th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC 2009)

Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
March 8 - 12, 2009

Due to many requests, the submission deadline of the SAC2009 was extended!!!
New deadline: August 23rd (Midnight time in Hawaii).

After the conference the best papers will be selected to be extended and published in the Intelligent Data Analysis (IDA) journal (http://www.iospress.nl/loadtop/load.php?isbn=1088467x). The selection of the track papers will be done first by the Track organizers and then by IDA editorial board members.

Relational Learning (RL) algorithms allow the use of more complex representations for both data and models when compared with traditional algorithms that use attribute-value representations. The difference in the complexity of the representation makes RL algorithms applicable to a wider range of applications but also rises new problems. It is an important topic for data analysis in any field that processes structured data an requires complex models. Problems of scalability and efficient implementations are critical for RL algorithms.

The track aims at providing a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange findings and review knowledge and understanding on topics related to Relational Learning. It will be also an opportunity to present novel applications and new RL systems.

List of topics
A non-exclusive list of topics relevant to the track, sorted alphabetically, include:
Applications of Relational Learning (bioinformatics, drug design, text-mining, ...)
Distributed Computing for Relational Learning
Efficiency issues of Relational Learning
Graph Mining
Implementation issues of Relational Learning
Inductive Logic Programming
New Relational Learning algorithms
Propositionalization methods
Statistical Relational Learning

Important dates
Deadline for paper submission & August 16th, 2008
Author notification & October 11th, 2008
Camera ready due & October 25th, 2008
Conference takes place & March 8 - 12, 2009

Papers should respect the ACM SAC format as specified in: http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2009/ Submission of papers is made using the SAC submission web page. According to the conference reviewing rules, all papers will be evaluated by three reviewers following a blind review process (reviewers will be blind to the identities of the authors and their institutions). The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must NOT appear in the body of the paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. This is to facilitate blind review. Only the title should be shown at the first page without the author's information.
