21st International Conference on Discovery Science (DS 2018): First Call for Papers

by George Angelos Papadopoulos, April 17, 2018

The 21st International Conference on Discovery Science (DS 2018) provides
an open forum for intensive discussions and exchange of new ideas among
researchers working in the area of Discovery Science.

The scope of the conference includes the development and analysis of
methods for discovering scientific knowledge, coming from machine
learning, data mining, intelligent data analysis, big data analysis as well as
their application in various scientific domains.

We welcome papers that focus on the analysis of different types of massive
and complex data, including structured, spatio-temporal and network data.
We particularly welcome papers addressing applications. Finally, we would
like to encourage contributions from the areas of computational
scientific discovery, mining scientific data, computational creativity and
discovery informatics.

WELCOME


The 21st International Conference on Discovery Science (DS 2018) provides

an open forum for intensive discussions and exchange of new ideas among

researchers working in the area of Discovery Science. 


The scope of the conference includes the development and analysis of

methods for discovering scientific knowledge, coming from machine

learning, data mining, intelligent data analysis, big data analysis as well as

their application in various scientific domains. 


We welcome papers that focus on the analysis of different types of massive

and complex data, including structured, spatio-temporal and network data.

We particularly welcome papers addressing applications. Finally, we would

like to encourage contributions from the areas of computational

scientific discovery, mining scientific data, computational creativity and

discovery informatics. 


DS 2018 will be co-located with ISMIS 2018, the 24th International

Symposium on Methodologies for Intelligent Systems. The two conferences

will be held in parallel, and will share their invited talks. 



TOPICS


We invite submissions of research papers addressing all aspects of

discovery science. We particularly welcome contributions that discuss the

application of data analysis, data mining and other support techniques for

scientific discovery including, but not limited to, biomedical, astronomical

and other physics domains. Applications to massive, heterogeneous,

continuous or imprecise data sets are of particular interests. Possible topics

include, but are not limited to: 


• Knowledge discovery, machine learning and statistical methods 

• Ubiquitous knowledge discovery 

• Data streams, evolving data and models 

• Change detection and model maintenance 

• Active knowledge discovery 

• Learning from text and web mining 

• Information extraction from scientific literature 

• Knowledge discovery from heterogeneous, unstructured and

   multimedia data 

• Knowledge discovery in network and link data 

• Knowledge discovery in social networks 

• Data and knowledge visualization 

• Spatial/temporal Data 

• Mining graphs and structured data 

• Planning to learn 

• Knowledge transfer 

• Computational creativity 

• Human-machine interaction for knowledge discovery and management 

• Biomedical knowledge discovery and analysis 

• Machine learning for high-performance computing, grid and

   cloud computing 

• Applications of the above techniques to natural or social sciences 



PAPER SUBMISSION


Papers may contain up to fifteen (15) pages and must be formatted

according to the layout supplied by Springer-Verlag for the Lecture Notes

in Computer Science series. Submitted papers may not have appeared in or

be under consideration for another workshop, conference or a journal,

nor may they be under review or submitted to another forum during the DS

2018 review process


Authors can submit their papers electronically via our submission page

through Easychair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ds20180 .



PUBLICATION AND JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUES


The DS 2018 proceedings will be published by Springer in LNAI

(Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) and will be available at the

conference.


Authors of best papers will be invited to submit their extended versions to

the Machine Learning journal (https://link.springer.com/journal/10994)

published by Springer. Fast Track Processing will be used to have them

reviewed and published.
