Objectives and Scope

The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers, students and scientists from various research areas and to provide them an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary forum for discussion of different approaches and techniques of time series data analysis and their implementation in various real life applications. Time series data is abundant in nature and their analysis is needed in various fields like medical and health related applications, biometrics or process industry, finance or economic data analysis or weather prediction.

Linear or nonlinear time series analysis has a long history in Statistical and Mathematical Science. It is relatively new in the area of data mining or web mining in which time series text data is involved. An unifying approach to bridge the gap between traditional multivariate time series data analysis with state-of-the-art methodologies of data mining and knowledge extraction from real life time series data (numerical and text) from various sensors will be aimed in the workshop in order to deal with today's Big data.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to:
  • Time series Analysis and Forecasting: Statistical Methods and Multivariate Analysis
  • Time series Analysis with Computational Intelligence
  • Time series Classification and Clustering
  • Early Classification on Multivariate time series
  • Time series Dimensionality Reduction Techniques
  • Similarity Measures for time series
  • Time series Anomaly Detection
  • Applications in energy, finance, medical, health, environment, network, social data, transportation, weather etc.
Paper Submission

Prospective authors are invited to submit an extended abstract (up to 4 pages including figures and references). Manuscript should be unpublished work, must include enough detail about the goal, the problem to solve, proposed methods and main results. Papers should be written in English, formatted according to the Springer Verlag LNCS style in a pdf form, which can be obtained from Springer Online.

    Simultaneous Acquisition Of Heterogenous Information Sources To Be Processed As Time Series

    Abstract: Before processing time series, it is of great importance to acquire the signal correctly. In this paper, through examples, we will show some difficulties and their solutions, ranging from simple situations with one signal, such as heartbeat monitoring signals, to more complex ones with several heterogeneous signals, such as hyperspectral images or environmental measurements. All imply careful time acquisition as well as precise value estimations. For each situation that will be presented, we will identify the difficulties and find how to overcome them or, at least, diminish their impact. In any case, having a maximum of information in the signal must be a goal and will be crucial to obtain a good discrimination between signal and noise.

    Time series modeling and prediction disbelief management

    Abstract: Time series data is everywhere: it comes from IoT, sensor data, financial transactions and scientific observations. Time series analysis provides powerful tools and methodologies for modeling all kinds of related processes and predictions based on such models often are of great value for many applications in business, medicine and science. But even the most accurate prediction will be useless if potential users will not want to use it. I will discuss the not rare problem of prediction disbelief and methods of its management resulting from 15 years of experience with business and sientific time series modeling. The subject will be presented with references to the methods of genetic programming, contextual neural networks and competing ensembles of classifiers. The background story connecting all mentioned elements will be the case of SOHO SOI/MDI time series modeling for prediction of the Sun activity, important for many areas of the industry, business and people life.

    Geosemantics knowledge mining model framework in social network media

    Abstract: In this talk, we will address not only a knowledge mining framework, modelling, and their applications in social media streams, but also current issues and ongoing work for related work. First we will introduce a spatial and a temporal concepts, a spatiotemporal concept, social media stream, and geosemantics as well as their services. Second we will explain knowledge extraction of geosemantics and issues of knowledge extraction in geospatial domain as well as ontology in social media stream. Some issues, which are social media stream collection and preprocessing, association rule in social media stream, applications of knowledge to be extracted, are also discussed. Third we propose a framework of geosemantics knowledge mining for social network media: collecting social media data, extracting concepts, finding rules according to the transaction, and monitoring the issues and changing of the issue. We will also take care of an indexing technique for geospatial problems. Finally we discuss current issues and ongoing researches.
