CFP: The NASA Conference on Intelligent Data Understanding

CIDU-2010: The NASA Conference on Intelligent Data Understanding
Computer History Museum, Mountain View, CA, USA
October 5th - 7th, 2010

The NASA Conference on Intelligent Data Understanding is applications-oriented, with a focus on Earth Sciences, Space Sciences, and Aerospace and Engineering Systems Applications. The program committee of CIDU is soliciting theme-oriented papers that help propel one of the aforementioned applications, while also making contributions to machine learning and data mining. We invite papers that include a clear link between the domain (application area) and machine learning/data mining.

All submitted papers will be judged based on their technical/scientific merit, significance, originality, relevance, and clarity. Papers submitted to CIDU 2010 should be original work, not previously published in a peer-reviewed conference or journal, unless the authors submit a compelling position paper based on their prior published work, presenting the grand challenge problem for the synergy between the domain and data mining. While the conference is focused on the core application areas of Earth Sciences, Space Sciences, and Aerospace and Engineering Systems for the conference, we very much welcome papers that are more methodology oriented with applications that might cross-cut across the topics. The methodology papers must be motivated accordingly.

The proceedings of CIDU 2010 will be published by NASA and archived in the NASA Center for Aerospace Information and will be indexed by DBLP. Selected papers will be published in the journal Statistical Analysis and Data Mining.

Key dates:

  • Full paper manuscripts due: May 7, 2010
  • Full paper author notification: June 30, 2010
