    ==========================================================
    CALL FOR PAPERS

    International Journal of Image and Graphics (IJIG)
    Special Issue on Graphical Methods in Data Mining
    ==========================================================

    GUEST EDITORS:
    Abraham Kandel (University of South Florida, USA)
    Horst Bunke (University of Bern, Switzerland)
    Mark Last (Ben-Gurion University, Israel)

    SCHEDULE
    ---------------
    Submission deadline of the completed paper: 16 July 2001
    Notification of decisions: 15 September 2001
    Final papers: 15 October 2001

    BACKGROUND
    ---------------------
    Traditional data mining methods include a variety of techniques for
    extracting quantitative patterns from large amounts of numeric and
    textual data. However, the raw data is often obtained in a graphical
    form as a 3-D image, a multimedia object, etc. In addition, the
    interpretability of the quantitative data mining results falls short of
    the visualization approach, where the human perception can identify
    patterns and anomalies in a fast and efficient way. Thus, graphical
    methods present a promising approach to such important challenges of
    data mining and knowledge discovery as improving understandability of
    discovered patterns, mining complex data types, interactive knowledge
    discovery, web mining, and others.

    The aim of this special issue is to present recent advances in the
    applications of graphical methods to data mining. Submitted
    papers should describe novel methodologies, detailed results of
    real-world data mining studies, or extensive comparison of existing
    methods and tools. In particular, we encourage submissions that discuss
    integration of graphical methods with well-established data mining
    techniques (e.g., decision trees or neural networks).

    Topics addressed by this issue include, but are not limited to:

    · Data visualization
    · Visualization of the knowledge discovery process
    · Graphical user interfaces (GUI) for data mining
    · Automated perceptions of visualized data
    · Data generalization and aggregation
    · Data cleaning
    · Outliers detection and analysis
    · Temporal and spatial data mining
    · Multimedia data mining
    · Visual cluster analysis
    · Web mining
    · Visualization of data mining results
