KDD 2014 Workshops – the latest in Data Mining and Data Science Research

KDD 2014 workshops are the forum for the latest data mining and data science research. Workshop topics include Data Science for Social Good, Big Data Discovery and Curation, Big Data Analytics for Bio/Health Informatics, Stream Mining, Data Ethics, Sports Analytics, and more. Submission dates from late May to late June.

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, New York, NY, USA is the 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. All workshops will be held on Sunday, Aug 24, 2014.

See below for an updated table of this year's two dozen exciting workshops, from n. 1 to n. 25. The careful readers will note one number between 1 and 25 is missing (it is #11. It is a mystery why there is no workshop #11).

Paper submission dates vary from May 21 to June 24.
