The 21st International Conference on Discovery Science (DS 2018) 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 discovering scientific knowledge, coming from machine learning, data mining, intelligent data analysis, big data analysis as well as their application in various scientific domains.
We welcome papers that focus on the analysis of different types of massive and complex data, including structured, spatio-temporal and network data. We particularly welcome papers addressing applications. Finally, we would like to encourage contributions from the areas of computational scientific discovery, mining scientific data, computational creativity and discovery informatics.
DS-2018 will be co-located with ISMIS 2018 (http://cyprusconferences.org/ismis2018/), the 24th International Symposium on Methodologies for Intelligent Systems. The two conferences will be held in parallel, and will share their invited talks.
Traditionally, the proceedings of DS series appear in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence Series by Springer-Verlag. Selected papers will be invited for a submission to a special issue in Machine Learning journal.
