KDIR is part of IC3K, the 16th International Joint Conference on Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management.
Registration to KDIR allows free access to all other IC3K conferences.


IC3K 2024 will be held in conjunction with ICINCO 2024, WEBIST 2024 and CoopIS 2024.

Registration to IC3K allows free access to the ICINCO, WEBIST and CoopIS conferences (as a non-speaker).



Although the conference is back to the normal mode (i.e., in-person) speakers are allowed to present remotely if unable to travel to the venue (hybrid support).
 

Upcoming Submission Deadlines

Regular Paper Submission Extension: June 24, 2024
Position/Regular Paper Submission: July 17, 2024
Doctoral Consortium Paper Submission: October 1, 2024

Knowledge Discovery (KD) is an interdisciplinary domain focusing upon methodologies for identifying valid, hidden, novel, potentially useful and meaningful information from within data of all kinds. Knowledge discovery encompasses an end-to-end process involving: data preparation, the application of learning techniques and the presentation of the acquired knowledge. The learning techniques used range from statistically-based data mining, through sophisticated machine learning to deep learning facilitated but recent increases in computer processing power. Current trends in the field of KD include Explainable AI, Hybrid-learning, and the application of knowledge discovery to ever increasingly diverse data sets. Information Retrieval (IR), in turn, is concerned with the gathering of relevant information, from unstructured and semantically fuzzy data in texts and other media, typically in response to a user query. This encompasses searching for information within documents and for metadata about documents, as well as searching relational databases and the Web. Automation of IR enables the reduction of what has been called "information overload". The tools and techniques of KD are increasingly used to enhance and automate information retrieval processes. Current trends in IR include learning to rank models, data representation using embedding techniques, and the use of knowledge graph technology. The scope of the KDIR conference covers all aspect KD and IR, and the overlap between the two.
