NEWS ! Proceedings of ASI4





Let us recall that this method of non-symmetrical data analysis allows us to extract and structure knowledge in the form of rules and general rules using a set of data that connects a population of subjects (or objects) with a set of variables. This method stems from the statistical modelling of the quasi-implication: if a given variable or conjunction of variables “a” is noticed among the population, then, in general, so will be variable “b”. The variables referred to can be of various types: binary, modal, numerical, interval, etc. Contrary to the methods of symmetrical analysis based, for instance, on distance or correlation, groups of acquired rules can lead to hypotheses of causality. These groups are structured according to different supplementary approaches (implicative graph, oriented hierarchy). The quantitative determination of subjects or descriptors responsible for these structures is determined by their contribution or their typicality. Finally, the results and their interpretation can be readily visualized by means of the CHIC software (Classification Hiérarchique Implicative and Cohésitive).

Topics of ASI 4



In order to register to ASI4:

Registration fees

120 €

until July the 30th

180 €

from July the 31st

The registration fees include:

There will be a special excursion on Saturday afternoon, whose price (40 €, not included in the registration fees) does includes lunch.


Communications shall be given in Spanish or French or, exceptionally, in Italian or English, and shall concern one or several of the topics listed above. Particular attention shall be given to the justification of the methodological choices made and to the interpretation of results within the framework of the enunciated problems. Oral communications will be subject to a scientific and reading committee review and must be presented in one of these two forms:

Poster proposals will fit in one page and communication texts will comprise a maximum of 4,000 words or 12 pages. The front page shall state the title of the communication, the names and affiliation of the authors, and an abstract (in Spanish, French, and English) of a maximum of 10 lines. Texts shall be drafted in Word format, Times 10, simple line space, respecting the instructions of the style_WORD_10pt. They are to be submitted before March 17, 2007 in two versions:

Invited Keynote Speaker: Professeur Einoshin SUZUKI (Kyushu University, Japan), spécialiste mondialement reconnu en Data Mining, Président d'Honneur en janvier 2007 des Journées "Extraction et Gestion des Connaissances" de Namur.



A collection of papers gathering different forms of contributions will be published in the form of a university journal (with ISSN or ISBN number), and handed out at the beginning of the conference, and shall also be available on-line (on the web).
