Discovery Science 2020: Extension of Deadlines

**********************************************************************************************

The 23rd International Conference on Discovery Science (DS 2020)

http://ds2020.csd.auth.gr/

Thessaloniki, Greece, October, 19-21, 2020

*********************************************************************************************

***********************************
Extension of Deadlines
***********************************

Due to multiple requests we decided to extend the deadlines for abstract and paper submission to June 10 and June 14 respectively. The new deadlines are strict.


***********************************
COVID-19
***********************************

We hope that by October the world will have returned to normality and we can welcome you in Thessaloniki. However, in case the COVID-19 risk will persist and travelling will be difficult, DS 2020 will take place either as a mixed event by offering both remote and on site presentation options or as a fully online event at the worst case. The accepted papers will still be published by Springer and the special issue will proceed as announced. In these weird times that the whole of humanity is going through, we hope that all of you are safe and remain healthy and positive.


***********************************
Scope and Topics
***********************************

The international conference on Discovery Science provides an open forum for intensive discussions and exchange of new ideas among researchers working in the area of Discovery Science. The conference focus is on the use of artificial intelligence methods in science. Its scope includes the development and analysis of methods for discovering scientific knowledge, coming from machine learning, data mining, intelligent data analysis, and big data analytics, as well as their application in various domains.

We invite submissions of research papers addressing all aspects of discovery science. We encourage papers that focus on the analysis of different types of massive and complex data, including structured, spatio-temporal and network data, as well as heterogeneous, continuous or imprecise data. We also encourage papers in the fields of computational scientific discovery, mining scientific data, computational creativity and discovery informatics. We welcome papers addressing applications of artificial intelligence in different domains of science, including biomedicine and life sciences, materials science, astronomy, physics, chemistry, as well as social sciences.

Submission Guidelines
***********************************

Papers must be written in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines (https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines). Papers should be submitted in PDF form via the DS 2020 Online Submission System (EasyChair - submit here https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ds2020). Once a paper has been submitted to the conference, changes to the author list are not permitted.

Submitted papers should not exceed 15 pages (long papers) and 10 pages (short ones), in total (including references). All submissions will be subject to review by the DS 2020 Program Committee. The Program Committee reserves the right to offer acceptance as Short Papers (10 pages in the Proceedings) to some Long Paper submissions. All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by Springer LNCS series and will have allocated time for oral presentation in the conference.

The reviews are single-blind. Authors do not need to anonymize their submission. Submitted papers may not have appeared in or be under consideration for another workshop, conference or journal. They may not be under review or submitted to another forum during the DS 2020 review process.

Authors of accepted papers will transfer their copyrights to Springer. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Open access publication (against the payment of additional open access fees) is possible and should be specified when submitting the camera ready copies of the papers. For a paper to appear in the proceedings, at least one of the authors must register for the conference by the camera-ready submission deadline and present the paper at the conference.


***********************************
Special issue
***********************************

The authors of a number of selected papers presented at DS 2020 will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for possible inclusion in a special issue of Machine Learning journal (published by Springer) on Discovery Science. Fast-track processing will be used to have them reviewed and published.


***********************************
Invited speakers
***********************************

* Myra Spiliopoulou, Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg
* Gustau Camps-Valls, Universitat de València
* Peter Flach, University of Bristol


***********************************
Venue
***********************************

The conference will take place at the Grand Hotel Palace, the largest 5-star conference hotel in Thessaloniki -- the 2nd biggest city of Greece. Thessaloniki is directly connected by flight to many European cities. A number of tourist attractions are within easy reach of Thessaloniki: These include Mount Olympus (70 km from Thessaloniki), Vergina (which is at a driving distance of 40 minutes) and the UNESCO world heritage Mount Athos with 20 monasteries (which can be visited by men only and is at a ~2h driving distance).
