WCCI 2022 SPECIAL SESSION ON

Data-Driven Decision Support for Streaming Data with Uncertainties

July 18-23, Centro Congressi, Padova, Italy

 
Background

Machine Learning for streaming data has enjoyed tremendous growth and exhibited a wealth of developments, at both the conceptual and application level, in recent years. It comes with a number of algorithms with successful experiments reported thoroughly in the literature. In particular, there have been numerous successful realizations of stream-based machine learning methods in application areas, including e-service, finance, transportation, weather forecasting, telecommunications, product pricing, and so on. Handling streaming data in real-time is highly visible in both machine learning and data science fields.

 

Existing data-driven decision support systems focus on stationary data. Few decision support systems have been reported in existing studies addressing uncertainties in streaming data such as the distributional changes, evolving features, new labels, temporal dependency, etc. Namely, it still lacks autonomous and self-adaptive decision support systems in the literature that can provide real-time accurate decision solutions for high-volume streaming data.

Aims

This special session is to provide a forum for researchers in the decision making field and the stream learning field to share the latest advantages in theories, algorithms, and applications on streaming data-driven decision support systems. Specifically, this session will focus on real-time decision support for streaming data that may contain uncertainties such as concept drift, evolving features or labels, noisy time series, imbalanced labels, temporal dependency, etc. These research directions include several hot topics in the field of decision making and stream learning such as real-time decision support, adaptive decision support systems, decision-making under uncertainty, concept drift, nonstationary environment and multiple stream learning.

Important Dates

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the bi-annual IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (IEEE WCCI), which is the largest technical event in the field of computational intelligence. The IEEE WCCI 2022 will host three conferences: The 2022 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2022 – co-sponsored by International Neural Network Society – INNS), the 2022 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2022), and the 2022 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC 2022) under one roof. It encourages cross-fertilization of ideas among the three big areas and provides a forum for intellectuals from all over the world to discuss and present their research findings on computational intelligence.

IEEE WCCI 2022 will be held in Padua, Italy, one of the most charming and dynamic towns in Italy. It is located in the Veneto region, in Northern Italy. The historical center boasts a wealth of medieval, renaissance and modern architecture. Here a fascinating mix of historic and new, of centuries-old traditions and metropolitan rhythms creates a unique atmosphere. The medieval palaces, churches and cobbled streets emanate a sense of history. Padua features rich historical and cultural attractions, such as “Prato della Valle”, the largest square in Europe; the famous Scrovegni Chapel painted by Giotto; the Botanical Garden that is a UNESCO Word Heritage; the University of Padua, that is the second oldest university in Italy (1222) celebrating, in 2022, 800 years of history.

See the important dates below:​
