CFP: ECML-PKDD-08 Workshop: From Local Patterns to Global Models

                 From Local Patterns to Global Models
                        ECML/PKDD-08 Workshop
                 15 September 2008, Antwerp, Belgium

The topic of this workshop is the induction of actionable global
models from local patterns. The different elements of this subject can
be organised in the following three steps: Pattern Discovery, Pattern
Set Selection, and Global Modeling. We call for papers concerning
these three steps with a particular focus on the interaction of these
phases. The workshop's goal is to bring people that work on various
aspects of this subject into a fruitful dicussion about the
state-of-the-art and the remaining open problems, about commonalities
and differences in their respective works.

Research areas that are of interest to this workshop include:

    * Associative Classification
    * Combination Strategies
    * Compression-based Pattern Selection
    * Constraint-based Pattern Set Mining
    * Efficient Pattern Set Discovery
    * Ensembles of Patterns
    * Feature Construction and Selection
    * Generalilty of Local Pattern Constraints
    * Global Modeling with Patterns
    * Iterative Local Pattern Discovery
    * KDD Process-models for Building Global Models from Local Patterns
    * Metrics for Pattern Set Selection
    * Pattern Ordering
    * Patterns and Information Theory
    * Pattern Set Selection
    * Pattern Teams
    * Propagation of Global Modeling Constraints to Local Pattern
    * Propositionalisation
    * Quality Measures for Pattern Sets
    * Resolution of Conflicting Predictions
    * Subgroup Discovery

We will also admit position statements or interesting incomplete or
immature work into the program, which will hopefully stimulate
discussions, in order to further the main goal of the workshop, namely
to increase the awareness of different approaches to this general
problem. Thus, we welcome various types of papers that deal with the
topics of this workshop, including papers that present new results,
ongoing research projects, completed work (even previously published),
position statements, surveys, open problems and challenges. There is
no minimum or maximum length of papers. However, presentation times
for accepted contributions may vary. Given sufficient high-quality
submissions, a post-workshop special issue in a journal will be
