Call For Papers

Mining Data Semantics (MDS'2011) Workshop
in conjunction with SIGKDD2011 (
August 21-24, 2011, San Diego, CA, USA.
The workshop aims to discuss key issues and practices of semantic mining. Thanks to the initiatives of the Linked Open Data and robust techniques for semantic annotation of Web, social, and sensor data, more semantic data is available. Many research efforts have been directed toward demonstrating semantic techniques to analyze and mine this growing resource. The workshop will provide a cross-disciplinary forum for researchers to showcase their innovation and efforts, and to further enhance existing bounds and create new connections among different communities. Here we solicit contributions on researches and practices of mining data semantics including theory, algorithms, and applications from computer science, life science, health care and other domains. In addition, we will organize invited talks and a panel that will discuss the interdisciplinary challenges of social search and mining.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Mining large scale enriched semantic data (e.g. linked data, social data, sensors data, etc.);
- Mining heterogeneous information networks;
- Query formulation and understanding (e.g. understanding user's intention or needs);
- Automatically creating ontologies or taxonomies;
- Enhancing search/mining using domain specific ontologies;
- Semantic graph mining/reasoning;
- Mining semantics of social relationships (e.g. positive or negative relationships);
- Entity disambiguation on large scale datasets;
- Enabling social trust using provenance;
- Performance and scalability for semantic graph mining;
- Mining semantics for life science and health care;
- Visualizing semantic data;
- Mining collective intelligence and semantic-based social networks;
