First Call for Papers

IDA 2005

6th International Symposium on
Intelligent Data Analysis

Madrid, Spain
September 8-10, 2005


IDA-2005 will take place in Madrid, September 8-10, 2005, under the 
auspices of the IDA council. The conference is organized by researchers 
and professors from the National Research Council of Canada, the 
Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Universidad Rey Juan Carlos and the 
Universiteit Utrecht. It will consist of a stimulating program of 
invited talks by leading international experts in intelligent data 
analysis, contributed papers, poster sessions, and an exciting social 

Our aim for IDA-2005 is to bring together a wide variety of researchers 
- academic, industrial, and otherwise – who are concerned with 
extracting knowledge from data, including researchers from statistics, 
machine learning, neural networks, computer science, pattern 
recognition, database management, and other areas. The strategies 
adopted by people working in these areas are often different, and a 
synergy results if this is recognised. IDA-2005 is intended to stimulate 
interaction between these different areas, so that more powerful 
techniques and tools emerge for extracting knowledge from data and a 
better understanding is developed for the process of intelligent data 

In IDA-2005 conference we propose an interesting agenda of social events 
that include several tutorial tracks, open panel discussions, and 
keynote talks, all based on the following topics of interest:

Algorithms and Techniques (Machine Learning, Data Mining, Statistics, ...):
- Artificial neural networks
- Bayesian networks
- Heuristic methods
- Optimization problems
- Case-based reasoning
- Computational models of human learning
- Computational learning theory
- Cooperative learning
- Unsupervised learning
- Decision and induction
- Evolutionary computation
- Grammatical inference
- Incremental and on-line learning
- Information retrieval and learning
- Knowledge acquisition and learning
- Data pre- and post-processing
- Data visualisation
- Statistical pattern recognition and analysis
- Performance and optimization

Theoretical Contributions (Data Analysis Principles, KDD, Data Modeling, 
- Data Mining theories
- Information retrieval restrictions
- Legal data analysis restrictions
- Innovative data analysis (models, information types, and objectives)
- Theoretical IDA issues
- New paradigms

Application Fields (Practical, Applied and Industrial Data Analysis):
- Bio-informatics and bio-surveillance
- Web analysis
- Medical applications
- Industrial data analysis
- Commerce and finance information analysis
- Government, legal analysis (socio-economic data, legal issues)

This is the sixth Symposium on Intelligent Data Analysis after the 
successful symposia IDA-2003 (Berlin), IDA-2001 (Lisboa), IDA-99 
(Amsterdam), IDA-97 (London), and IDA-95 (Baden-Baden). IDA conferences 
series intends to provide an international forum for the discussion of 
the innovative outstanding research results in the field of intelligent 
data analysis, becoming one of the most significant conferences on this 
topic world-wide. Contributions in this field deal with either 
theoretical or applied real-world problems making special effort in 
introducing novel data analysis techniques.

Important Dates

April 1, 2005 Deadline for submitting papers
May 18, 2005 Notification of acceptance
June 6, 2005 Deadline for submission of final papers


The proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer 
Science Series of Springer. The proceedings of Intelligent Data Analysis 
1997, 1999, 2001 and 2003 appeared in this series as LNCS 1280, LNCS 
1642 LNCS 2189, and LNCS 2810 respectively.

We also plan to have a special issue of the Intelligent Data Analysis 
journal with extended versions of a number of papers presented during 
the symposium. http://www.iospress.nl/html/1088467x.html
