International Workshop on DAta mining meets Visual Analytics at big data era (DAVA 2015)

The world is awash with big data now – we are generating ten exabytes of data in a variety of different forms every day. In this wave, there is a trend to integrate the data mining methods with interactive visualizations to advance the so-called visual analytics (VA) technology. The VA technique enjoys the joint advantage of the human intelligence and the machine’s computational power. Various aspects of the data mining method need to be inspected, justified, organized and evaluated for a successful VA system. The challenges include but not limited to: big data reduction method to enable large-scale visualization; big data integration algorithms to fuse heterogeneous information source for efficient visualizations; temporal data analysis techniques for the effective dynamic and streaming data visualization; and the mechanism for data privacy and security to delivery trustworthy big data visualization for end users.

Exploring all these directions for joining the data analysis with visualization and to finally deliver value to users is a problem of vital importance and requires a lot of efforts from different parties. This workshop will bring together interdisciplinary researchers from academy, research labs and practice to share, exchange, learn, and develop preliminary results, new concepts, ideas, principles, and methodologies on applying data mining technologies to help advance the visual analytics technology. Researchers and practitioners on the domain of data mining, machine learning, visualization, user interface etc., are welcome to attend, no specific background knowledge is required.

The topics of this workshop include, but not limited to, the following:

Submitted manuscripts must be formatted in IEEE 2-column format (4~6 pages, templates available at here) and must be submitted via ICDM 2015 workshop submission site as PDF files. Submitted papers can be in all areas of Data Mining/Visual Analytics, but can not have been previously published in or be under consideration for publication in another journal or conference. The workshop Program Committee reserves the right to not review papers that either exceed the length specification or have been submitted or published elsewhere. Submissions must include a title, abstract, keywords, author(s) and affiliation(s) with postal and e-mail address(es).

Each submission will receive at least three independent reviews from the international TPC. At least one of the authors of every accepted paper must register and present their work at ICDM 2015 workshop venue. Accepted and registered workshop papers will be published in the workshop proceeding of the ICDM 2015 that has already been accepted in the IEEE Conference Publication Program. The DAVA 2015 organization committee will select one paper of the highest quality to receive the DAVA 2015 best paper award.
