CALL FOR PAPERS:Special Session on Data and Knowledge Exploration of MACIS 2015 

About MACIS 
   MACIS is a series of biennial conferences focusing on research in mathematical 
   and computational aspects of computing and information science. It is broadly 
   concerned with algorithmic issues arising from the rich interplay across the 
   Numerical/Algebraic/Geometric/Topological axes. These issues often in scientific 
   and engineering computation where we need experimental studies to validate or 
   complement the theory. MACIS is interested in outstanding and emerging problems 
   in all these areas. 

Aim and Scope of the Special Session 
   The increased interest in discovering and managing the underlying, valid, insightful, 
   and valuable knowledge from diverse, massive, complex, and fast changing data has 
   stimulated the study and applications of many mathematical theories (for instance, 
   topology, computational geometry, differential equations, fluid dynamics, and quantum 
   statistics). Various methods and techniques have been proposed to solve problems in 
   designing, analyzing, and implementing data-intensive and knowledge-based information 
   systems. This special session of MACIS 2015 aims at gathering researchers, engineers, and others 
   interested in exploring mathematical methods for scientifically analyzing data and 
   systematically managing knowledge to discuss theoretical and practical challenges and 
   to present recent research progress and results dedicated (not exhausted) in 

      - mathematical foundation and theories for data-intensive and knowledge-based systems 
      - mathematical methods and techniques for complex knowledge representation, organization, 
        visualization, searching, and management 
      - theories and efficient methods for knowledge reasoning, revision, and validation 
      - statistical, dynamic, logical analysis of data and knowledge models 
      - mathematical modeling of recommendation systems, ranking systems, rating systems, 
        expert systems, etc. 

Important Dates 
   - Easy Chair open for all submissions:            Apr 21, 2015 
     (SHORT papers are decided on a rolling basis) 
   - Deadline for submission of all papers:          August 11, 2015 
   - Notification on REGULAR papers:                 September 30, 2015 
   - Camera Ready papers:                            November 30, 2015 
   - MACIS Conference:                               November 11-13, 2015 

Important Author Information for MACIS 2015 
   MACIS 2015 will be held in the renowned Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB) 
   centrally located in the capital of Germany.  Named after Konrad Zuse, the 
   inventor of the first programmable computer, ZIB is an interdisciplinary 
   institute for applied mathematics and data-intensive high-performance 
   computing.  Its research areas in modeling, simulation and optimization in 
   partnership with academia and industry is exemplary of the goals of MACIS. 

   MACIS 2015 aims to span two conference cultures, that of computer 
   science and of mathematics:  mathematical conferences allow informal 
   presentations in order to allow rapid dissemination of ideas and feedback 
   from the community.  But their talk abstracts are expected to turn into 
   peer-reviewed journal papers. Computer science conferences expect close-to-final 
   papers to appear in conference proceedings. Often such papers might be 
   the final publication.  Recognizing the value of both modes of scientific 
   communication, MACIS 2015 will accept two categories of papers, SHORT and 
   REGULAR.  To facilitate your travel planning, we will make decisions on 
   SHORT papers on a rolling basis, normally 10-15 days after submission. 
   REGULAR papers will go through a standard refereeing process by the PC. 

   MACIS 2015 aims to be a forum for researchers. Within the MACIS framework, 
   you can easily organize Special Sessions (SS) for current hot topics.  We 
   invite you to send us inquiries or proposals, addressed to yap at cs.nyu.edu. 

   A post-conference proceedings will be published with Springer's in the LNCS 
   series. In addition, following the conference, authors will have 
   the opportunity to submit to planned special issues of the journal 
   "Mathematics in Computer Science" (http://www.cc4cm.org/mcs), published by 
   Birkhauser/Springer (www.springer.com/birkhauser/mathematics/journal/11786). 

Submission Guideline 
   Original research papers in English, including experimental work and 
   work-in-progress are welcome.  All papers must be categorized as SHORT or 
   REGULAR, and indicate the Special Session (i.e., SS9). Paper titles must be 
   tagged as illustrated here: 
           "SHORT-SS9: ...title..."    -or-    "REGULAR-SS9: ...title..." 
   The 2-part tag must be in the same line as the title. 

   REGULAR papers are up to 15 pages, and SHORT papers are up to 5 pages, 
   inclusive of references.  The Special Session tag is a hint to the PC, 
   but it is non-binding on the author or on the PC.  Submit via EasyChair: 


   There is an option to convert from SHORT papers to REGULAR papers: 
   simply make a new submission for your REGULAR paper before the deadline, 
   keeping the same title but with a new tag.  For travel planning 
   purposes, we recommend submitting a SHORT paper immediately, and converting 
   into a REGULAR paper as desired. 

   At least one author of each accepted submission must register at MACIS 2015. 
   Decision on the SHORT paper will be made on a rolling basis, normally about 
   10-15 days after submission.  The title and abstract of accepted papers 
   will appear on our Website shortly after acceptance, and published in the 
   post-conference proceedings.
