The Second International Workshop on Interesting Knowledge Mining (IKM 10)

Seoul, South Korea, August 16~18, 2010

Scope and Topics

The IKM Workshop focuses on issues of discovering interesting and actionable knowledge from data. Theoretical advances, algorithms and systems, and application cases that make efforts to derive interesting knowledge from data are welcome contributions.

One of the main goals of KDD is to find nuggets of useful knowledge that could influence or help users in a decision making process. This task can be viewed as searching in an immense space for possible workable, concrete, and profitable strategies to the decision-maker. In the last decade, KDD algorithms have made a tremendous progress and have been demonstrated to be of significant value in a variety of real-world applications. Nevertheless, there is a gap between the discovered patterns and the formulated solutions. Currently, this gap is filled by manual or semi-automatic analysis, which is time consuming, biased, limits the efficiency of KDD overall process and capabilities.

The workshop invites papers on all aspects of diminishing the gap between the discovered results and actual action plans, including, but not limited to:

  • Intelligent Agents
  • Intelligent Information Systems
  • Knowledge Representation and Integration
  • Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
  • Knowledge Visualization
