BI2010 provides a premier forum for sharing research and engineering results, as well as potential challenges and prospects encountered in Behavior Informatics, namely towards deep and quantitative representation, modeling, analysis, mining, presentation, management and applications of behavioral data, composed of behaviors, behavior subjects and objects, behavior networks, organizational behavior, social behavior, system behavior, group behavior, behavior evolution, causes and effects, and/or behavior impacts.


The BI2010 workshop welcomes theoretical work and applied disseminations on:
* Behavior modeling and representation: formalizing behaviors, relationships, impact and networks.
* Behavior analysis and mining: behaviors associated with high impacts are of particular importance, while impact-oriented behaviors are often sparse, rare and imbalanced isolated in business and data; analyse impact-oriented behavior patterns involves different pattern types and computational challenges.
* Analysis of behavior social networks: handling challenging issues such as convergence and divergence of behaviors, and the evolution and emergence of hidden groups and communities.
* Extracting discriminative behavior patterns from high-dimensional, high-frequency, high-density, and huge amount of data.
* Large intra-class variance between behaviors: Due to the highly overlapped nature of behavior data, it is extremely difficult to build a robust behavior model which is tolerant for one behavior category while differentiate amongst other categories.
* Behavior data processing from transactional space to behavior feature space.

Post-workshop publication:

* A special Issue on Behavior Modeling, Analysis and Mining is under planning (to be confirmed).

* Longbing Cao, University of Technology Sydney, Australia
* Jaideep Srivastava, University of Minnesota, USA
* Graham Williams, Australian Taxation Office, Australia
