CALL  FOR  PAPERS

Communications in Information and Systems ・A Special Issue
Computational Informatics in Data Mining and Information Retrieval

A special issue for the journal Communications in Information 
and Systems (http://www.ims.cuhk.edu.hk/~cis/) is scheduled 
on the topic on Computational Informatics in Data Mining 
and Information Retrieval. The research in data mining 
and information retrieval on structured and unstructured data 
has been growing tremendously. Unlike structured data commonly 
found in database or data warehouse, unstructured data does not 
have a rigid schema. Various kinds of text data such as online news, 
emails, memos, and equipment maintenance logs are examples 
of unstructured data.  Other examples are data composed of a 
combination of structured database records and free texts such 
as data found in biomedical domain, automated diagnosis, and 
customer relationship management applications.  Mining useful 
information or extracting knowledge from structured and unstructured 
data has received much attention recently. Information retrieval 
for unstructured data especially text data has also drawn much 
interests. A variety of models and techniques have been developed. 
Computational technique plays an important role in developing 
intelligent mining and information retrieval methods for handling 
and processing the information content found in the data.

This special issue solicits high-quality innovative papers 
addressing significant research related to the broad area of 
computational informatics in data mining and information 
retrieval. Special topics of interest include, but are not 
limited to, the following:
- Intelligent information retrieval
- Intelligent data fusion
- Computational intelligence algorithms
- Text mining
- Semi-structured data mining
- Computational learning from unstructured data
- Intelligent data preprocessing
- Image mining 
- Computational medical informatics
- Mining or learning sequences from data

Correspondence by e-mail is requested for convenience and speed.  
Authors may submit unpublished manuscripts in English to any 
guest editors via email.  A cover letter must be sent to the 
corresponding editor by e-mail. The cover letter should give 
the author's preferred address, e-mail address, phone number, 
and fax number. All manuscripts will be reviewed by a panel 
of referees. Authors of all accepted papers must send the 
electronic version of the final manuscript (preferably in 
LATEX2e) to the corresponding editor.
