Special Issue on Discovery Science - Call for Papers

at The Computer Journal (Oxford University Press), Submission page (specify "DS Special Issue"), Instructions for Authors

Special issues of The Computer Journal (Official Page)

Scope and background
The Computer Journal is soliciting submissions based on an open call for papers for a Special Issue on Discovery Science (DS), to provide a leading forum for timely, in-depth presentation of recent advances in algorithms, theories, and applications in the field of DS, which first started as a national project for investigating the automated discovery process with scientific approach in Japan involving more than 100 researchers in 1998. This project gave birth to a series of international conferences with the same name, which have been held successfully twelve times over a dozen years. This special issue capitalises on the success of the DS conferences, but also provides an open competition for all researchers who wish to present relevant research results.

Domain of Interest
Papers are solicited concerning automatic scientific knowledge discovery, data mining, machine learning, intelligent data analysis, theory of learning, and their application to knowledge discovery.

The Computer Journal
The Computer Journal started in 1958 and is thus one of the longest-established journals serving all branches of the academic computer science community. The Journal has an impact factor of 1.000 and is published on behalf of The British Computer Society with more than 70,000 members and from the Oxford University Press. It is currently published in Section A: Computer Science, Methods and Tools (e.g., theory, algorithms, software engineering, data structures, and complexity) and Section B: Networks and Computer Systems (e.g., architectures, mobile and wireless computing, network protocols, security, reliability and performance optimisation). A third section, to be launched in 2010, is: Section C: Computational Intelligence builds on artificial intelligence, robotics and machine intelligence (e.g., data mining, image processing, knowledge-based systems and the semantic web). The special issue belongs to the Section C of the Computer Journal.
