The Second International Conference on
Mining Intelligence and Knowledge Exploration
December 10-12, 2014, University College Cork, Ireland
MIKE 2014 is an interdisciplinary conference that brings together researchers and
practitioners from the domains of learning algorithms, data mining, machine learning,
knowledge exploration, large-scale data analytics, big data, soft computing and
information systems. MIKE focuses on a specialised topic every year and the theme for
this year is: Learning to explore Business Intelligence.
The MIKE 2014 Program Committee invites submissions of original 1. Theoretical research
papers, 2. Applied research papers and 3. Deployed application papers on all aspects of
Learning Algorithms, Data / Text Mining and Knowledge discovery techniques for the main
technical program.

Each submission must be identified as either 1. Theoretical research 2. Applied research, or 3. A
deployed application paper and will be reviewed using criteria appropriate to its category. Most
importantly, the review process is double-blind reviewed and hence the authors are instructed not to
include anywhere in the submission, their identity, affiliation(s) or contact details. Violating this
restriction will lead to disqualification of the paper from the review process. All papers should be
prepared and submitted according to the following guidelines.
MIKE 2014 uses a double-blind review process for paper selection.
a) Authors should not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers should not
know the name(s) of the authors.
b) Please prepare your paper in a way that preserves anonymity of the authors.
c) Do not put your name(s) under the title.
d) Avoid using phrases such as “our previous work” when referring to earlier wby the authors.
e) Remove information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers
and grant IDs)
f) Check supplemental material (e.g., titles in the video clips, or supplementary documents) for
information that may identify the authors’ identities.
g) Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors.
Papers must be submitted online through EasyChair system following the submission link:
All accepted papers will appear in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNCS/LNAI) series
published by Springer and will be indexed by DBLP, Scopus and other popular indexing systems.
Additionally authors of selected best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for a number of
special issue journals (for more details, please check the website).
Papers MUST be submitted in Springer LNCS format, which is the format required for the
final camera ready copy. We will accept:
Long papers: with a maximum of 10 pages
Short papers: with a maximum of 6 pages
Both long and short papers will be considered for poster and oral (short or long)
presentation at the conference based on the reviewing criteria above. Authors'
instructions along with LaTeX (preferred) and Word macro files are available on the web
at Springer's Information for LNCS Authors page
Call for Papers
Authors should note that the papers should be of maximum 10 A4 pages (including figures
and tables) and manuscripts must be prepared with LaTex2e (
LaTeX Format:
Authors of accepted papers are required to transfer the copyright to Springer. All submissions are
required to be in electronic format.
Multiple Submission Policy
Papers submitted to other conferences or journals must state this fact. If a paper will appear in another
conference or journal, it must be withdrawn from MIKE 2014. This restriction does not apply to papers
appearing in proceedings of specialised MIKE workshops.
Author Registration Policy
In order for a paper to appear in the proceedings, at least one of the authors MUST register for the
conference by the camera-ready copy deadline.
