ECMLPKDD 2015: Summer School on Data Sciences for Big Data - Resource Aware Data Mining

From 2nd to 5th of September 2015, the TU Dortmund University and LIAAD-INESC TEC will organize a Summer School on Data Sciences for Big Data - Resource Aware Data Mining.

The School will be hosted at Faculty of Sciences, University of Porto and is collocated with  ECMLPKDD 2015 - European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (http://www.ecmlpkdd2015.org/).

 

For the summer school, world leading researchers in machine learning and data mining will give lectures on recent techniques dealing with huge amounts of data, spatio-temporal streaming data, distributed and graph data, sensors  and embedded systems. The summer school is designed for Master and PhD students, and professionals who wanted to learn cutting edge techniques for data mining with constrained computational resources.

For further details go to: http://www.ecmlpkdd2015.org/summer-school/about

We invite senior and junior researchers to submit summaries of their own work published in neighboring fields, such as (but not limited to) artificial intelligence, data analytics, bioinformatics, games, computational linguistics, computer vision, geoinformatics, health informatics, database theory, human computer interaction, information and knowledge management, robotics, pattern recognition, statistics, social network analysis, theoretical computer science, uncertainty in AI, network science, complex systems science, and computationally oriented sociology, economy, statistics and biology.

Particularly welcome is work that illustrates the pervasiveness of data-driven exploration and modelling in science and technology, as well as innovative applications.

Accepted NECTAR contributions will be presented as talks or posters and included in the conference proceedings.

 

Important dates

Submission deadline: May 4, 2015

ECMLPKDD 2015 : Call for Demos

http://www.ecmlpkdd2015.org

For ECML PKDD 2015 in Porto, Portugal, we solicit submissions for demos. Submissions must describe 
working systems and be based on state-of-the-art machine learning and data mining technology. 
These systems may be innovative prototype implementations or mature systems that use machine
learning techniques and knowledge discovery processes in a real setting. Systems that use basic
statistics are not acceptable. Commercial software is not acceptable.

The accepted papers for demos will be included in the conference proceedings, 
to be published by Springer Verlag in the "Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence" 
(LNAI) Series. The demos will be presented in a special demonstration session. 
At least one of the demo submitters must register for the conference, and perform 
the demo on site. 

Submission Guidelines

All aspects of the submission and notification process will be handled online via 
the CMT conference management toolkit accessible from the conference web.  
Please choose the right track during the submission. Instructions concerning the submission, 
camera-ready formatting and copyright transfer for conference papers also hold for demo papers, 
unless otherwise specified.

A demonstration submission must be up to 4 pages long. It must provide adequate information 
on the system’s components and the way the system is operated, including e.g. screenshots.

Submitters should keep in mind that the description of a demo has inherently different 
content than a research paper submitted to the main conference. A successful demonstration 
paper provides satisfactory answers the following questions:

- What are the innovative aspects or in what way/area does it represent the state of the art?
- Who are the target users and why is the system interesting/useful for them?
- If there are similar/related pieces of software, what are the advantages and disadvantages 
  of the presented one?

The formatting guidelines of Springer Verlag for the LNAI series apply, and the author 
instructions and style files under http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html must be used.
For inquiries concerning submissions please contact the Demo Track Chairs; contact data below.

Important Dates

- Demo submission deadline: 30 April 2015
- Notification of acceptance: 1 June 2015
- Camera-ready paper due: 15 June 2015 (aligned to the deadline of the main conference)

Contacts

For further information please contact the Demo Track Chairs:
- Francesco Bonchi
- Jaime Cardoso, INESC TEC and Univ. Porto
- Myra Spiliopoulou, Univ. Magdeburg, http://www.kmd.ovgu.de/Team/Academic+Staff/Myra+Spiliopoulou.html
