Special session on Machine Learning Techniques and Information security (MLTIS)

 Objective and Motivation

With the advancement in using Machine Learning techniques, the capabilities of Information Security techniques to model complex systems and solving more complex problems makes them a useful tool in scientific researches and applications.

Machine learning is being used decades ago in many applications such as medical applications, biometric authentication, image retrieval, and other applications. Since the emerging of the Big Data, obtained from different field such as meteorology, genomics, finance, healthcare, social media and web data, the importance of the machine learning became very crucial for the decision makers.

Optimization can be used in various applications to find the minimal cost, maximal profit, and others.  It has a vital role in designing smart/intelligent systems, e.g. recommender systems, search engines, image retrieval/recognition…etc. The advance of these systems requires the development of new optimization techniques to enhance the learning algorithms of the applied machine learning techniques. In general, optimization provide offers a valuable framework for reasoning about, formulating, analyzing, and solving different problems in machine learning.

The aim of this session  is  to attract researchers  and  practitioners  from  academia  and  industry for exchanging theoretical and practical ideas,  and  provide  a discussion  environment  in  order  to  share  their  experiences  of  the state-of-the-art in Information Security related to machine learning.

 Scope and Interests:

Prospective authors are invited to submit their research papers on the topics, but not limited to the following:

  • Machine learning and optimization application.
  • Using machine learning techniques in big data.
  • Feature extraction using machine learning techniques.
  • Database and Data Management Security
