Call For Papers

Discovery Science 2009

http://ds09.liaad.up.pt/


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.

Welcome!


Important Dates

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


Collocated Event

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.


Mentoring Program

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

them prepare their final submission.


Student Award

An excellent student paper will be selected to receive the Carl Smith Award.
The award carries a scholarship prize of 555 Euros.


Submission Topics

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.
