Call for Papers

The Machine Learning track at FLAIRS-03 is intended to provide an international forum for discussing the latest results in the area of Machine Learning (ML). It will be organized within the framework of the FLAIRS conference that traditionally brings together researchers and practitioners from a wide range of AI related areas. As a core AI topic, ML always responds to the general AI trends. The current AI developments related to the World Wide Web are no exception. Accordingly the track will focus on modern ML approaches as Agent and Web related learning. All traditional ML approaches will also be included. Specifically we invite submissions that fall within the following topics: Along with the Agent and Web learning, papers describing real-life applications of ML are especially encouraged. High quality papers in any other area of Machine Learning are also welcomed.
