Book aims

  • Presents an overview of the theory and core methods used in utility mining
  • Covers recent advances on high utility mining
  • Covers stream, incremental, sequence and the big data paradigm.
  • Discusses important applications and open-source software.

Important dates

If you wish to write a chapter, please submit a chapter proposal by according to the following deadlines:

Chapter proposal deadline: 1st October 2017
Proposal acceptance date: 10th October 2017
Full chapter submission deadline: 15th January 2018
Planned publication date: 1st July 2018

Topics of interest (not limited to):

  • high-utility itemset mining
  • high-utility sequential patterns and rules
  • incremental high-utility itemset mining
  • utility mining in streams
  • utility mining in uncertain databases
  • utility mining in big data
  • concise representations of utility patterns
