DS-2006: Call for Papers
The Ninth International Conference on Discovery Science (DS-2006) will be held in Barcelona, Spain, on 7-10 October 2006. DS-2006 will be collocated with ALT-2006, the Sixteenth International Conference on Algorithmic Learning Theory. The two conferences will be held in parallel, and they will share the invited talks. The proceedings of DS-2006 will appear in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence by Springer-Verlag.
DS-2006 provides an open forum for intensive discussions and interchange of new information among researchers working in the area of Discovery Science. The scope of the conference includes the development and anlysis of methods for intelligent data analysis, knowledge discovery and machine learning, as well as their application to scientific knowledge discovery.
We invite submissions of research papers addressing all aspects of discovery science. We particularly welcome contributions that discuss the application of data analysis and other support techniques for scientific discovery including, but not limited to, biomedical, astronomical and other physics domains.
Two types of submissions are solicited: regular and long papers. Regular papers will be presented in an oral spotlight presentation and a poster; authors of long papers will have the opportunity to give an extended oral presentation. The submission web site will be available at http://www-ai.ijs.si/~ds06/.
A paper submission must be formatted according to the layout supplied by Springer-Verlag for the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Regular papers must not exceed five (5) pages, whereas long papers may contain up to twelve (12) pages.
Mentoring Program and Student Award
DS-2006 features a mentoring program, introduced last year. Students who are first authors of papers are invited to submit a paper draft on or before the mentoring deadline. They will receive a comments from a PC member that will help them to prepare the final submission.
Carl Smith Award will be given to an excellent student paper.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Mentoring program submission deadline: 27 April 2006
