KDD-2014, Data Mining for Social Good KDD-2014, 20th ACM SIGKDD Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining, to be held August 24-27, 2014 in New York, NY, USA is the leading research conference in Data Mining, Data Science, and Knowledge Discovery.

KDD-2014 technical program will feature the research track, the applications track, the industry practice track, the KDD Cup competition, workshops, tutorials, oral presentations, keynotes, poster sessions, panels, exhibits, demonstrations, and much more.

Workshops are an important part of the conference (indeed KDD conference arose from a workshop I organized at IJCAI-89 conference). The workshops provide the forum for discussing the leading edge research ideas and this year, there are 24 exciting workshops - see below. Paper submission dates vary but generally in early June.
