DS 2013 : The 16th International Conference on Discovery Science
Conference Series : Discovery Science
Call For Papers
The 16th International Conference on Discovery Science (DS-2013) will be held in Singapore, on 6-9 October 2013, collocated with ALT-2013, the 24th International Conference on Algorithmic Learning Theory. The two conferences will be held in parallel, and will share their invited talks.
Traditionally the proceedings of DS series appear in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence Series by Springer-Verlag. In addition, a special issue on Discovery Science is planned in a prestigious journal.
DS 2013 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 automatic scientific knowledge discovery, machine learning, intelligent data analysis, theory of learning, as well as their application to knowledge discovery.
Full paper submission: May 11, 2013 (extended: May 25, 2013)
Author notification: June 16, 2013
Camera-ready papers due: July 7, 2013
Early registration deadline: September 7, 2013
Conference: October 6-9, 2013
All deadlines are 23:59:59 Pago Pago/American Samoa time. Abstracts and first versions of the papers have to be submitted by this time, but it will still be possible to replace the uploaded versions for some time after the deadline.
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.
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 conference or a journal, nor may they be under review or submitted to another forum during the DS 2013 review process.
An excellent student paper will be selected to receive the Carl Smith Award The award carries a scholarship prize of 555 euros.
