KDIR 2010 : International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval
Conference Series : International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval
Call For Papers
KDIR 2010 (International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval - http://www.kdir.ic3k.org/) has currently an open call for papers, whose deadline is on May 20, 2010. We hope you can participate in this prestigious conference by submitting a paper reflecting your current research.
Organized by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC), KDIR 2010 will be held in Valencia, Spain, next October 25 - 28, and it aims at becoming a top reference for researchers and practitioners in its area.
Knowledge Discovery is an interdisciplinary area focusing upon methodologies for identifying valid, novel, potentially useful and meaningful patterns from data, often based on underlying large data sets. A major aspect of Knowledge Discovery is data mining, i.e. applying data analysis and discovery algorithms that produce a particular enumeration of patterns (or models) over the data. Knowledge Discovery also includes the evaluation of patterns and identification of which add to knowledge. This has proven to be a promising approach for enhancing the intelligence of software systems and services. The ongoing rapid growth of online data due to the Internet and the widespread use of large databases have created an important need for knowledge discovery methodologies. The challenge of extracting knowledge from data draws upon research in a large number of disciplines including statistics, databases, pattern recognition, machine learning, data visualization, optimization, and high
-performance computing, to deliver advanced business intelligence and web discovery solutions.
Information retrieval (IR) is concerned with gathering relevant information from unstructured and semantically fuzzy data in texts and other media, searching for information within documents and for metadata about documents, as well as searching relational databases and the Web. Automation of information retrieval enables the reduction of what has been called "information overload".
Information retrieval can be combined with knowledge discovery to create software tools that empower users of decision support systems to better understand and use the knowledge underlying large data sets.
This meeting will take place yearly, bringing together top researchers and practitioners in knowledge technologies, especially those related to KDIR main topic areas. The conference is co-located with two related conferences in a joint conference format, namely:
- Knowledge Engineering and Ontology Development (http://www.keod.ic3k.org/)
- Knowledge Management and Information Sharing (http://www.kmis.ic3k.org/)
Registration to one conference allows free access to all conferences.
The conference program will include a number of Keynote Lectures delivered by distinguished world-class researchers. Their names will be announced soon at the conference website (http://www.kdir.ic3k.org).
Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book.
The proceedings will be indexed by several major international indexes. We are awaiting confirmation of Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC, DBLP and EI.
Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session.
All published papers will be also available at the SciTePress' Digital Library, which will be made available shortly.
Should you have any question please don't hesitate contacting me.
