Second Workshop on Algorithms for Large-Scale Information Processing in Knowledge Discovery (ALSIP 2011)

Sunport Hall Takamatsu, Takamatsu, Kagawa, Japan.
December 1-2, 2011.

Objectives and scopes of the workshop

Information created by people has increased rapidly and now we are in a time which we could call the information-explosion 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 aspects of knowledge discovery problems.
This workshop is a part of JSAI international symposia, and supported by JST ERATO Minato Project.

Invited Speakers

In this year, special emphasis is placed on succinct data structures including rank/select dictionaries, LOUDS, FM-index and wavelet trees. We invite three prominent scientists working in this emerging field.

Final Paper Submission

  • Contributors may submit their full papers for inclusion in LNCS volume (JSAI workshop proceedings).
  • The manuscripts should be submitted by e-mail to "alsip2011 [at mark]".
  • Up to 14 pages in LNCS format
  • Jan 4, 2012: Submission Deadline
  • February 1, 2012: Notification of Acceptance
  • March 1, 2012: Camera Ready Deadline


Short abstracts (2-6 page) should be prepared in the LNAI style and submitted in PDF format to alsip2011 [at mark] The abstracts are circulated only among the participants and do not appear in the web. The authors of accepted abstracts are invited to submit their full papers (10-14 pages) for the volume "JSAI-isAI 2011 selected papers" (Lecture Note in Artificial Intelligence).
In addition to completely novel work, you can present your latest work published or to be published elsewhere. In this case, however, we do not invite the authors for LNAI proceedings. Please clearly note in your e-mail if you wish to publish your full paper in LNAI or not.
