Support  Vector  Machines (SVMs) are currently a very active research area 
within machine learning. Motivated by statistical learning theory 
they have been successfully applied to numerous tasks within data mining, 
computer vision and bioinformatics, for example. SVMs are examples 
of a broader category of learning approaches which utilize the concept 
of kernel substitution, thereby making the task of learning more 
tractable by exploiting an implicit mapping into a high dimensional 
space. SVMs have many appealing properties for machine learning. 
For example, the classic SVM learning task involves quadratic programming: 
there is only one solution and this may be found by using many of the 
efficient algorithms developed in optimization theory. Furthermore, 
recently developed model selection strategies can be applied, so that 
few, if any, learning parameters must be set by the operator. Above 
all, they have been found to work very well in practice. 

The  Neurocomputing  journal  invites  original  contributions for the
forthcoming  special  issue  on  Support  Vector Machines from a broad
range  of  areas.  Some topics relevant to this special issue include,
but are not restricted to:

-- Theoretical foundations, algorithms, and implementations

-- Model selection and hyperparameter tuning

-- Choosing kernels for special situations

-- Probabilistic treatment of SVMs

-- SVM methods for large scale problems

-- Benchmarking SVMs against other methods

-- Feature selection methods for SVMs

--  Key  applications  including,  but  not restricted to data mining,
bioinformatics, text categorization, machine vision, etc.
