Introduction: Clustering To group sets of data based on their similarity levels to groups/clusters Examples are Self Organizing Map(SOM), K- mean, Fuzzy C-mean.
Introduction: Textual Document Clustering To cluster/group sets of textual document based on their similarity levels. To ease information retrieval. Examples – the naive Bayes-based document clustering model , – WEBSOM , and – support vector machines-based for imbalanced text document classification .

Problem Statements : 1 Traditional textual document clustering uses off-line learning. – Weakness:- needed to re-learn when new document is fed. – Adaptive or evolving feature model can be the alternative to traditional methods. – Evolving increase the learning flexibility. – WEBSOM focuses on off-line learning
Problem Statement: 2 For SOM ( or WEBSOM) – the difficulty in determining the map size before learning . – The map size also affects the learning time .

Motivations and Objectives To construct an adaptive textual document clustering tool based on Evolving Tree (ETree). To apply a general application framework for Evolving Systems . To analyze the adaptive activity of the proposed method with UNIMAS ENCON 2008 articles.  Lughofer, E.: Evolving Fuzzy Systems – Methodologies, Advanced Concepts and Applications. Ed.1, Springer (2011)
Preliminary: Evolving Tree (ETree) Formed a tree structure that contains root node, trunk nodes and leaf nodes. Root node is the first created node in the tree. Trunk nodes is connecting the leaf nodes. Leaf nodes are the clusters formed. Able to expand hierarchically (form a tree structure) to scale the data. Hierarchical structure reduce the complexity control.

Concluding Remarks With the proposed approach, articles from ENCON 2008 could be clustered and visualized as a tree structure. In short, the proposed approach constitutes to a new decision support supporting tool for conference organizer. Besides, the proposed procedure could be useful with a larger number of articles with an expected increase in the computation complexity.
