I'm writing a paper for a good conference in computer science with specific themes in Data mining. I checked their scope of topics and their programs for the last 3 cycles of the conference, and i noticed they always have a session related to "Topic-X" (time-series) which is also mentioned in their CP's themes.
Well, i used my work (classification algorithm) to solve the problem regarding "Topic-X", but i also found that it is applicable to a much broader range of problems rather than only "Topic-X". But the conference does not have a session for a broad topic like that, although it is included in their CP's themes.
So i'm thinking:
1- If i write and name the paper related to "Topic-X" there is a high chance to get accepted there as they have a session for that. However, then i'd deliberately restrict the application scope of my method.
2- If I use it in the general case while also including "Topic-X" in the experiments, it may not directly fit the conference's session-X and may lose its chance to get accepted there.
3- If go with plan 1 but also include other types of problems in the experiments, I'm afraid it may sound awkward or out of the scope of the paper.
Should i ask the conference chair or is it more awkward?!
