The 2010 International Workshop on Scalable Machine Learning 
and Applications (SMLA-10)

To be held in conjunction with CIT'10 (Supported by IEEE Computer 
Society), June 29 - July 1, 2010, Bradford, UK


Machine learning and data mining have been playing an increasing role 
in many real scenarios, such as web mining, language processing, image 
search, financial engineering, etc. In these application domains, data 
are surpassing the scale of terabyte in an ever faster pace, but the 
techniques for processing and mining them often lag behind in far too 
many aspects. To deal with billions of web pages, images, transaction 
records and capacity-intensive audio and video data stream, machine 
learning and data mining techniques and their underlying computing 
infrastructure are facing great challenges.
In this SMLA workshop we are willing to bring together researchers and 
practitioners for getting advancement in scalable machine learning and 
applications. On one hand we expect works on how to dramatically empower 
existing machine learning and data mining methods via grid/cloud or other 
novel computing models. On the other hand we value the effort of building 
or extending machine learning and data mining methods that are scalable 
to huge datasets.
Papers can be related to any subset of the following topics, or any 
unconventional direction to scale up machine learning and data mining methods:
    -- Cloud Computing
    -- Large Scale Data Mining
    -- Fast Support Vector Machines
    -- Data Abstraction, Dimension Reduction
    -- User Personalization and Recommendation
    -- Natural Language Processing
    -- Ontology and Semantic Technologies
    -- Parallelization of Machine Learning Methods
    -- Fast Machine Learning Model Tuning and Selection
    -- Large Scale Webpage Topic, Genre, Sentiment Classification
    -- Financial Engineering

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished 
research and recent developments in the topics related to the workshop. 
The length of the papers should not exceed 6 pages + 2 pages for overlength
 charges (IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns,
 single-spaced), including figures and references, using 10 fonts, and 
number each page. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format
 (or postscript) by sending it as an e-mail attachment to Zhili Wu 
(z.wu at leeds.ac.uk). All papers will be peer reviewed and the comments will
 be provided to the authors. The accepted papers will be published together
 with those of other CIT'10 workshops by the IEEE Computer Society Press.

Distinguished selected papers, after further extensions, will be published 
in CIT 2010's special issues of the following prestigious SCI-indexed 

 -- The Journal of Supercomputing ¨C Springer 
 -- Journal of Computer and System Sciences ¨C Elsevier 
 -- Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience - John Wiley & Sons
