ALSIP 2014 : The fourth International Workshop on Algorithms for Large-Scale Information Processing in Knowledge Discovery, in conjunction with PAKDD 2014, 13 May 2014, Tainan, Taiwan

The workshop has successfully finished.

  • Slide from tutorial speaker is available now.
  • Photos at the workshop are now open.
  • Other photos at PAKDD2014 can be found here.
  • Slide at invited talk is available now.

Objectives and scopes of the workshop

Information created by people has increased rapidly in the recent decade, and now we are in a time which we could call "big data era." To cope with such a large-scale information space, novel algorithms and data structures are desired for solving various problems in the area of knowledge discovery. This workshop aims to exchange fresh ideas on large-scale data processing in the problems such as data mining, clustering, machine learning, statistical analysis, and other computational aspect of knowledge discovery problems.

The workshop will also focus on the algorithms with compressed and succinct data structures including FM-index, wavelet trees, compressed suffix arrays, BDDs/ZDDs and the other graph-based knowledge representations. The first ALSIP workshop was held in conjunction with PAKDD 2008 at Osaka Japan, and this will be the fourth workshop.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Data mining algorithms on compressed data
  • Indexing algorithms for machine learning and statistical methods
  • Graph-based data structures for knowledge representation
  • Succinct or compressed data structures motivated by problems in data mining
  • Novel memory-efficient data structures and algorithms for large-scale data mining
  • Large-scale itemset mining and associate rule mining
  • Knowledge data compression and indexing
  • Knowledge discovery from text and the web
  • Knowledge discovery from unstructured and multimedia data
  • Knowledge discovery from data stream and spatial/temporal data
  • Knowledge discovery in network and link data
  • Biomedical knowledge discovery, analysis of microarray and gene deletion data
  • Information extraction from scientific literature
  • Memory hierarchy optimizations in data mining algorithms
  • Other computational aspect of knowledge discovery problems

Submission and Publications

We expect 10-15 total submissions, 7-10 accepted papers, and we also have 1 or 2 invited talks. This workshop aims to exchanging fresh ideas, so some of authors would not like to officially publish their work in this workshop, but 2-5 outstanding papers would be included in Springer’ post-workshop proceedings. Each paper will have a 20 or 30 min. presentation including Q&A, and an invited talk will be 40-60 min. long. We expect 20-30 attendees in this workshop.

Papers must be limited to a maximum of 12 pages, following the PAKDD format requirement, and be sent to alsip-2014 [at] by Jan. 6, 2014 Jan. 15, 2014. If the size of the paper exceeds 5MB, contact with alsip-2014 [at]

Submitting a paper to the workshop means that if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the workshop to present the paper.

We also welcome for submitting extended abstract style paper (2 or 3 pages) if the author would like to present fresh work-in-progress ideas. "Workshop note" of the accepted papers will be distributed only for participants. It is not considered as an official publication, and if the authors will not submit the paper to the Springer's post-workshop proceedings, they can resubmit the paper to another conference or journal.


See PAKDD 2014 website about the registration for this workshop.
