Call for papers: SIGKDD Explorations
Special Issue on Constraints in Data Mining
Guest editor: Roberto Bayardo
SIGKDD Explorations is the official newsletter of ACM's Special
Interest Group (SIG) on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining. This
special issue invites submissions which explore novel applications and
uses of constraints in knowledge discovery and data mining.
Constraints play many important roles in KDD, among them:
o controlling search cost
o enabling comprehensible visualizations
o improving accuracy, interpretability and stability of classification
and other models.
While papers on improving data-mining algorithm performance
through constaints will be welcome, we particularly encourage
submissions which propose novel methods of dealing with or exploiting
constraints within the knowledge discovery process. Example topics of
interest might include methods for aiding the end user in setting or
understanding the effects of constraints, techniques for optimizing
models given a number of conflicting constraints, applications of
constraints to phases of knowledge discovery such as data cleansing or
data presentation, and theoretical underpinnings of constraint-based
We invite high quality submissions on the above topics for this
special issue. Submissions should be made to the guest editor at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions will be reviewed by the guest
editor, external reviewers and/or associate editors as appropriate.
The previous issues of the SIGKDD Explorations are available online at

newsletter is sent to the ACM SIGKDD membership and to a world-wide
network of libraries.
