Advanced Descriptive Pattern Mining (ADPM) Workshop

Association (frequent pattern) mining is a fruitful and important area of study that seeks (a) to discover what items (objects) appear frequently together and (b) to predict, given a set of objects, what other objects are likely to occur. Association mining has been successfully utilized for web log analysis, analysis of customer buying, biomedical knowledge mining, among others. However, over the years, a number of novel methods have been devised to expand the capabilities and scope of “association-like” descriptive patterns and rules. These advanced descriptive pattern methods include sequence mining, action rule mining, contrast patterns, utility mining, rare rule mining and targeted mining, among others. The motivation in organizing this workshop at the 2022 IEEE International Conference on Big Data is to attract novel papers in the development and application of advanced algorithms within the above subfields and to encourage conversations and idea exchange between the subfields.

This workshop is interested in papers involving theory, novel methods, and/or applications of advanced descriptive pattern mining. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Action Rule Mining
  • Utility Mining
  • Rare Rule Mining
  • Sequence Mining
  • Discriminative Pattern Mining
  • Contrast Mining
  • Emerging Pattern Mining
  • Subgroup discovery
  • Incremental and/or streaming for advanced descriptive pattern mining
  • Privacy/security for advanced descriptive pattern mining
  • Visualization techniques for advanced descriptive pattern mining
Authors of accepted papers will be expected to present their research at the workshop.

Paper Format and Submission
