Special Session on Evolutionary Computation for Actionable Knowledge Discovery
Scope and Topics
Actionable Knowledge Discovery (AKD) is an importance task for data analysis in real-world applications. To reach that, multiple aspects, e.g., meta knowledge, domain knowledge, technique and business criteria, should be considered in algorithms, and hence the AKD in applications are optimization problems. Evolutionary Computation (EC) already shows its powerful ability for dealing with optimization problems in various fields and searching the global optimal solution. Therefore, the aim of this special session is to provide a forum to disseminate and discuss recent and significant research effort on computational intelligence and other intelligence techniques for the AKD. This session is open to any high quality submission from researchers who work on mainly computational intelligence methods for the AKD. The scope of this section includes, but is not limited to the following topics:
- AKD-based Evolutionary Computation for Market Data Analysis (e.g., association rules, utility mining),
- AKD-based Evolutionary Computation for Financial Data Analysis (e.g., stock portfolio, trading strategy, capital management),
- AKD-based Evolutionary Computation for Time Series Data Analysis (e.g., temporal mining, spatial mining),
- AKD-based Evolutionary Computation for Features Selection,
- AKD-based Evolutionary Computation Classification Systems,
- Applications of AKD-based Evolutionary Computation,
- Other New Evolutionary Computation Approaches to the AKD.
