WIRN 2017 is sponsored by the Italian Society of Neural Networks (SIREN
in co‐operation with the International Institute for Advanced Scientific Studies (IIASS


WIRN 2017 –  CALL FOR PAPERS 

The Italian Workshop on Neural Networks (WIRN) is the annual conference of the Italian Society of Neural Networks (SIREN). The conference is organized, since 1989, in co-operation with the International Institute for Advanced Scientific Studies (IIASS) of Vietri S/M (Italy), and is a traditional event devoted to the discussion of novelties and innovations related to field of Artificial Neural Networks. In recent years, it also became a multidisciplinary forum on psychological and cognitive theories for modelling human behaviours. The 27th Edition of the Italian Workshop on Neural Networks (WIRN 2016) will be held at the IIASS of Vietri sul Mare, near Salerno, Italy.

CALL FOR PAPERS, SPECIAL SESSIONS PROPOSALS

Prospective authors are invited to contribute high quality papers in the topic areas listed below and proposals for special sessions. Special sessions aim to bring together researchers in special focused topics. Each special session should include at least 3 contributing papers. A proposal for a special session should include a summary statement (1 page long) describing the motivation and relevance of the proposed special session, together with the article titles and author names of the papers that will be included in the track. Contributions should be high quality, original and not published elsewhere or submitted for publication during the review period. Please visit the web site for further details of the required paper format. Papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee, and may be accepted for oral or poster presentation. All accepted contributions will be published in a special volume printed by Springer and indexed by SCOPUS. Authors will be limited to one paper per registration.

Title : Winnowing the Wheat from the Chaff in Complex and Large Data

Abstract :

The need for mining massive and complex data has become paramount in areas like education, web mining, social network analysis, security, and a variety of scientific pursuits. However many traditional supervised and unsupervised learning algorithms break down when applied in big data scenarios: this is known as the "big data problem". Among other concerns, big data presents serious scalability difficulties for these algorithms.

In this talk I will discuss the big data problem and solutions in the context of complex data I have worked on in recent years, namely, social networks, text, and educational data. I will also present a new method for distributed machine learning which directly tackles key problems posing challenges to successful and scalable mining of big data. Our method is scalable, general-purpose with regard to the machine learning algorithm, and easily adaptable to a variety of heterogeneous grid or cloud computing scenarios.
