LD4KD 2014 : 1st Workshop on Linked Data for Knowledge Discovery
Call For Papers
1st Workshop on Linked Data for Knowledge Discovery
co-located with the European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery 2014 (ECML/PKDD 2014)
15-19 September 2014, Nancy, France (http://www.ecmlpkdd2014.org/ )
Linked Data have attracted a lot of attention in recent years in many research areas, as their technologies and principles provide new ways to overcome typical data management and consumption issues such as reliability, heterogeneity, provenance or completeness. However, the way in which Linked Data can be applicable and beneficial to the Knowledge Discovery (KDD) pocess is still not completely understood. Many aspects of KDD could benefit from Linked Data, e.g. mining Linked Data sources, using Linked Data to enrich, represent or integrate local data for data preparation, interpretation or visualisation.
LD4KD will be an interactive hub to explore the benefits of Linked Data principles and technologies for Knowledge Discovery, together with addressing the new challenges that will emere from joining the two fields. It will be an opportunity for practitioners of both fields to create communication and collaboration channels,and bridge the gap between their overlapping, but mostly isolated communities.
The workshop encourages the participation of researchers from the Knowledge Discovery field to discuss and get informed about the use, benefits and challenges of Linked Data, while th Linked Data researchers can take advantage of and adapt Knowledge Discovery methods in their domain.
We welcome high quality position and research papers in which (1) Linked Data are used as support of Knowledge Discovery processes to extract useful knowledge, or (2) Knowledge Discovery techniques are adapted to work and possibly extend Linked Data.
Topics of either theoretical and applied interest include, but are not limited to:
- Linked Data for data pre-processing: cleaning, sorting, filtering or enrichment
- Linked Data applied to Machine Learning
- Linked Data for pattern extraction and behaviour detection
- Linked Data for pattern interpretation, visualization or optimisation
- Reasoning with patterns and Linked Data
- Reasoning on and extracting knowledge from Linked Data
- Linked Data mining
- Links prediction or links discovery using KDD
- Graph mining in Linked Data
- Interacting with Linked Data for Knowledge Discovery
