================================================================== First Call for Papers
13 - 15 June 2011, Espoo, Finland Aalto University School of Science and Technology and Dipoli Conference Center
Website: http://www.cis.hut.fi/wsom2011
Submission of full papers: January 14, 2011 Notification of acceptance: March 1, 2011 Camera-ready paper and author registration: April 1, 2011 Advance registration before: April 15, 2011
WSOM 2011 will bring together researchers and practitioners in the field of self-organizing systems, with a particular emphasis on the self-organizing maps. It will highlight key advances in these and closely related fields. WSOM 2011 is the eighth conference in a series of bi-annual international conferences started with WSOM'97 in Helsinki.
The event will be co-located with the ICANN 2011 conference that will be organized from 14th to 17th of June, 2011. Conference programmes, registrations and fees will be coordinated.
It is planned that papers accepted for the WSOM 2011 Proceedings will be published in the Springer series, Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Registered authors will receive a hard copy proceedings volume, and the proceedings will be available also in full-text electronic format via Springer's internet platform www.springer.com .
WSOM 2011 will take place at the Aalto University School of Science and Technology (former Helsinki University of Technology) and Dipoli Conference Center. They are located in Espoo, in the close vicinity of the Helsinki capital area. The area is one of the ICT research and development hot spots in Europe as well as known for its beautiful and easily accessible nature. The time of the year is particularly suitable for visiting Finland.
We expect contributions related to the theoretical and methodological aspects of the self-organizing map including:
* Data analysis and visualization with a special topic of modeling dynamic phenomena * Various mathematical approaches including information theory and mathematical statistics * Software and hardware implementations * Architectural solutions including hierarchical and growing networks, ensemble models and special metrics * Neuro-cognitive studies that compare modeling and empirical results at different levels
We also call for scientific and practice-oriented papers that describe the use of self-organizing maps with variants in different application areas including but not limited to:
* Data mining * Pattern recognition * Signal processing * Knowledge management * Time series processing * Industrial applications * Bioinformatics * Biomedical applications * Telecommunications * Financial analysis * Cognitive modeling * Robotics and intelligent systems * Image processing and vision * Speech processing * Language modeling * Text and document analysis
