DS 2009 : The 12th International Conference on Discovery Science
Conference Series : Discovery Science
Call For Papers
Discovery Science 2009
The 12th International Conference on Discovery Science (DS-2009) will
be held in Porto, Portugal, on 3-5 October 2009. The proceedings of
DS-2009 will appear in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence
Series by Springer-Verlag.
DS-2009 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. Very welcome are
papers that focus on dynamic and evolving data, models and structures.
Mentoring program submission: 12 April 2009
Submission deadline: 10 May 2009
Notifications: 21 June 2009
Camera-ready copy: 10 July 2009
Conference: 3-5 October 2009
DS-2009 will be collocated with ALT-2009, the 20th International
Conference on Algorithmic Learning Theory. The two conferences will be
held in parallel, and will share their invited talks.
Based on the success of the past four years, DS-2009 is featuring once
again a mentoring program. Students or groups of students that work
alone are invited to submit a paper draft no later than the mentoring
deadline. They will receive comments from a PC member that will help
them prepare their final submission.
An excellent student paper will be selected to receive the Carl Smith Award.
The award carries a scholarship prize of 555 Euros.
We invite submissions of research papers addressing all aspects of
discovery science. We particularly welcome contributions that discuss
the application of scientific knowledge discovery and other support
techniques including, but not limited to, biomedical, astronomical,
space, chemistry and other physics domains.
A paper submission must be formatted according to the layout supplied
by Springer-Verlag for the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
Papers may contain up to fifteen (15) pages. Possible topics include,
but are not limited to:
Logic and philosophy of scientific discovery
Knowledge discovery, machine learning and statistical methods
Ubiquitous Knowledge Discovery
Data Streams, Evolving Data and Models
Change Detection and Model Maintenance
