We expect the outcome of the workshop to be new insights with regard to useful pattern mining. UP provides a venue for results on presentation, visualisation and exploration of patterns by users. Moreover, by a great selection of regular papers and invited speakers, we bring together different approaches and views on the field of pattern mining. Great discussion is ensured.
We divide the scope of UP into three areas. Our first area of discussion is how to reduce the amount of returned patterns to useful amounts, whilst retaining the most important information. Our second area is to discuss how to present patterns to a user in a useful manner, e.g., allowing for visual exploration of the pattern set. Our third goal is to discuss how (small) sets of patterns can be used as surrogates for the original data. The main idea here is to challenge the belief that patterns are the end goal but instead use them as an intermediate result.
