One-day Workshop on Emerging Trends in Clustering
Centre Universitaire de Recherche
Hotel Dupanloup - Orléans
June 12, 2015

Clustering techniques are essential for knowledge discovery in many applications. This one day workshop aims at providing an overview on some emerging trends within the research area of clustering including declarative formulations, multi-objective, multi-view and constraint-based clustering.

The main objectives are to:  1) further increase interest on such important topics in the wider research community; and 2) provide a forum for researchers to present and discuss research results and state-of-the-art ongoing work.

Plenary Speakers:
  • Ian Davidson, Department of Computer Science, University of California/Davis, USA
    Declarative Formulations for Machine Learning and Data Mining
  • Julien Velcin, ERIC, Université Lyon 2
    Structuring temporal sparse data with application to opinion mining in the social media
  • Marcilio de Souto and Guillaume Cleuziou, LIFO, Université d'Orléans
    Discovering multiple clusterings

In order to allow fruitful discussions, besides the plenary talks,  during the Workshop, we invite submissions describing recently completed work, highly relevant results of research in progress, or successful systems and applications. The works will be presented in oral sessions (one or two). Since they will not be formal publications, they are eligible for future publication in other venues.

Submissions must be in English and must include a 2-page abstract and a short CV of the authors in PDF format. They must be sent to christel.vrain<at>

In terms of the evaluation process, in addition to the quality of the work, the submissions received will be selected taking into account that they meet the topics of the Workshop.
