KDD'18 Interactive Data Exploration and Analytics (IDEA) Workshop - CFP

 At the crossroads of Vis/HCI & ML/DM/DB

*** Full papers, demos, work-in-progress, lessons learned, vision papers ***

IDEA -- Interactive Data Exploration and Analytics -- is a full-day workshop
organized in conjunction with the ACM SIGKDD Conference on Knowledge, Discovery
and Data Mining in London, UK, on 20 August 2018.

Since 2013, the annual IDEA workshop has become one of the largest KDD
workshops, hosting many renowned keynote speakers and excellent papers, and
connecting the VIS/HCI/ML/DM/DB communities. Join us this year in London!

Paper submission deadline: Tue, May 8, 2018, 23:59 Hawaii Time


We had five great IDEAs (pun intended), at KDD'13 – '17 (in Chicago, NYC,
Sydney, San Francisco, and Halifax), with fantastic keynotes by Marti Hearst
(UC Berkeley), Haesun Park (Georgia Tech), Ben Shneiderman (UMD), Aditya
Parameswaran (UIUC), Geoff Webb (Monash University), Jure Leskovec (Stanford
University), Jerome H. Friedman (Stanford), Jeffrey Heer (U Washington,
Trifacta), Eamonn Keogh (UC Riverside), Saleema Amershi (Microsoft Research),
Samuel Kaski (Aalto University/HIIT), Leman Akoglu (CMU), and Rich Caruana
(Microsoft Research).

* Workshop Goals

We aim to address the development of data mining techniques and systems that
allow users to interactively explore their data, receiving near-instant updates
to every requested refinement. Our focus and emphasis is on interactivity and
effective integration of techniques from data mining, visualization and
human-computer interaction. In other words, we explore how the best of these
different, related domains can be combined such that the sum is greater than
the parts.

* Topics of Interest include, but are not limited to

- Data mining (DM)
   Online, streaming, or any-time algorithms
   Methods supporting interactive, iterative, or adaptive refinements
   Methods enabling instantaneous results
   User-specific results (preference, relevance, interestingness)
   Pattern & model sampling
   Theoretical/complexity analysis of instant data mining
- Human-computer interaction (HCI)
   Smart and adaptive interfaces for scalable techniques
   Methods, principles and mechanisms for incorporating user feedback
   User intent models
   Interfaces for explaining and interpreting analytics models and results
   Interfaces for interactively exploring and querying very large data
- Visualization (VIS)
   Interactive visualization of patterns and models
   Visual analytics
   Visualization for machine learning models
   Exploration or recommendation of visualization
   Visual user guidance
   Principles and techniques for information transfer

We invite any type of contribution on these topics: new principles, methods,
systems, empirical evaluations, etc.

* Submission Information

All papers will be peer reviewed, single-blinded. We welcome many kinds of
papers, such as (and not limited to):

Novel research papers
Demo papers
Work-in-progress papers
Visionary papers (white papers)
Appraisal papers of existing methods and tools (e.g., lessons learned)
Relevant work that has been previously published
Work that will be presented at the main conference of KDD

Authors should indicate in their abstracts the kind of submissions that the
paper belongs to, to help reviewers better understand their contributions.
Submissions must be in PDF, written in English, no more than 10 pages long, and
formatted according to the standard double-column ACM Sigconf Proceedings
Style. Shorter papers (including extended abstracts) are also welcome.

The accepted papers will be posted on the workshop website and will not appear
in the KDD proceedings.

For accepted papers, at least one author must attend the workshop to present
the work.
