First International Workshop on

Algorithms for Large-Scale Information Processing
in Knowledge Discovery
(ALSIP 2008)

May 20, 2008 (Tue)
Hotel Seagull Tempozan Osaka, Japan.

In conjunction with PAKDD 2008
The 12th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining.
May 20 - 23, 2008

Workshop co-organized by
MEXT Japan Grant-in-Aid for Science Research and Priority Area:
Cyber Infrastructure for the Information-explosion Era.

JSPS G-COE program of Hokkaido University:
Next-Generation Knowledge Information Science for Future Science and Technology.

[New] Workshop finished successfully.

Objectives and scopes of the workshop

Information created by people has increased rapidly since the year 2000, 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 aspect of knowledge discovery problems.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Workshop Chair

Program Committee Members

Workshop Format

This is a full day workshop. We have accepted 11 technical papers. Each technical paper will have a 30 minutes presentation including Q&A. We will also have one invited talk. Detailed program is shown below. All accepted papers will be included in the workshop note, printed for the attendees. By additional reviewing after the workshop, outstanding papers will be selected and included in the LNCS/LNAI Post Proceedings of PAKDD Workshops published by Springer.

Paper Submission (Closed)

All submitted papers will be refereed for quality and originality by the Program Committee. Manuscripts should be in English and consist of a cover page with title, authors' names, postal and email address, an up to 200-words abstract, up to 5 keywords and a body not longer than 12 single-spaced pages with font size at least 11 pts in LNCS format ( All papers must be submitted electronically by e-mail to the Workshop Chair in PDF format. 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. For no-show authors, their affiliations will receive a notification, and their paper may not be included in the post proceedings. Attendees are required to register at PAKDD'08 registration site and pay the registration fee in advance.
