Call for book chapter : High utility pattern mining: Theory and Applications (Springer)
Date: August 18, 2017 04:16PM

Hi all,

This is to let you know that a new book will be published next year about high utility pattern mining, by Springer. I am the main editor of that book and we are currently looking for chapter proposals. It means that if you would like to write a chapter in the book, you may submit a proposal before the deadline (1st October). More details below:




High-Utility Pattern Mining: Theory, Algorithms and Applications

Editors: Philippe Fournier-Viger, Chun-Wei Lin, Roger Nkambou, Bay Vo

Book to be published by Springer in 2018


Chapter proposal deadline: 1st October 2017
Proposal acceptance date: 10th October 2017
Full chapter submission deadline: 15th January 2018
Planned publication date: 1st July 2018


High utility pattern mining is a popular and emerging research area in the field of data mining, which consists of discovering patterns of high importance in databases. The importance of patterns can be expressed in terms of various criteria such as the utility, weight or importance of patterns. One of the major applications of utility mining is the analysis of customer transaction databases to discover sets of items that generate a high profit when purchased together. This book provides an introduction to this field, reviews state-of-the-art techniques, and discusses recent advances.


Presents an overview of the theory and core methods used in utility mining
Covers recent advances on high utility mining
Covers stream, incremental, sequence and the big data paradigm.
Discusses important applications and open-source software.
Topics of interest (not limited to):
high-utility itemset mining
high-utility sequential patterns and rules
high-utility episode mining
incremental high-utility itemset mining
utility mining in streams
utility mining in uncertain databases
utility mining in big data
concise representations of utility patterns
periodic, recent, high utility patterns
visualization techniques.
privacy preserving utility mining
open-source software
A chapter can be either a survey of a topic of interest or be a research paper.


Interested researchers are invited to submit a chapter proposal clearly stating your focused problems and contributions related to one of the above topics due on the 1st October 2017. This must include a proposed title, abstract, author list with names/affiliations/e-mails, and a brief description of the organization of your chapter in terms of sections and content. Authors of accepted chapters will be notified by the 10th October 2017. Full chapters are due by the 15th January 2017. The Springer LaTeX template for multi-author books must be used for chapters.
