Organizers: Alireza AHRARY (Sojo University, Japan) ahrary(at)cis.sojo-u.ac.jp Noriko HORIBE (Sojo University, Japan) horibe(at)cis.sojo-u.ac.jp
Applied engineering in Agriculture provides coverage of advances in the development and application of hardware, software and electronic instrumentation and control systems for solving problems in agriculture and related industries. This special session aims to provide an opportunity for researchers to discuss their ideas and efforts in applied engineering in agriculture. Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work in the areas including (but not limited to) the followings: Computers and electronics in agriculture, Agriculture software, applications and tools, Cloud computing for agriculture, Sensor network technologies for agriculture, Robotics in agriculture, Computer-aided manufacturing and design in agriculture, Agriculture education, Agricultural products processing, Agricultural transportation, distribution and marketing.
Machine Learning and Data Mining
Organizer :Tetsuhiro MIYAHARA (Hiroshima City University) miyares13 (at) gmail.com
With the rapid development of data collecting techniques, large volumes of various datahave been stored. The aim of this special session is to present recent results in the field of machine learning and data mining in order to develop new methods for discovering knowledge from such various data, including transaction data, numerical data, text data, tree or graph structured data, biometric data, and sensing data. Papers dealing with theories, algorithms, methods, techniques and systems in machine learning and data mining are sought for this session. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Knowledge Discovery, Text Mining, Tree Mining, Graph Mining, Classification, Intelligent Information Systems, Learning Theory, Evolutionary Computation.
Instructions for organizers and authors
Each paper in your session must be 4-6 pages length and be formatted by CPS 8.5x11 proc. style because the paper would be published as the proceedings by CPS. Cpnference Proceedings would be submitted to be indexed by EI, Inspec, DBLP, and Thomson ISI.

Session organizer must register and attend the conference. Otherwise, all papers in your session would be cancelled and removed from the proceedings.

The instruction to organize the special session is as follows.

  • Special session organizer(s) needs to gather and organize a session with 5 or 6 papers. Each sesson needs to have review by the session organizer(s) or at least two session committee.
  • Length of each paper should be 4-6 pages. Please see the instruction of regular paper.
  • The schedule is flexible. Session organizer(s) needs to make a schedule in which every authors submit papers to publishers by camera-ready paper due.
  • When the organizer(s) sends accepted papers (5 to 8 papers) in your session, please indicate one outstanding paper of your session.
