Call for Papers: Machine Learning journal Special Issue on “Data Analysis and Intelligent Optimization with Applications”

The Machine Learning journal invites submissions to a special issue on “Data Analysis and Intelligent Optimization with Applications”. The aim of this special issue is to bring together researchers working in different areas  elated to analytics and/or intelligent optimization. The special issue includes both the theory and the practice of Data Analysis and Intelligent Optimization. Papers devoted to statistical as well as heuristic methods of Machine Learning are welcome. This special issue welcomes papers devoted to optimization problems in Data Analysis and Machine Learning. A non-exhaustive list of topics of interest is given below.


  • Intelligent Optimization,
  • Model Selection and Model Complexity,
  • Predictive Modeling and Optimization,
  • Computational Complexity and Optimization,
  • Pattern Recognition and Classification,
  • Regression and Forecasting,
  • Models of Data and Measurements,
  • Feature Selection,
  • Soft Computing,
  • Learning Theory,
  • Treatment of Imbalanced Data Sets,
  • All kinds of data analysis models (e.g. Support Vector Machines, Neural Networks,
  • Bayesian Networks, Rule Induction and Ensemble Learning).


  • Business applications,
