This is a highly recommended Intelligent Data Analysis conference that will be held in Porto, Portugal on April 26th. IDA’s mission is to promote ideas over performance.
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Monday, October 12th 2020, or created by us.
Advancing Intelligent Data Analysis requires novel, potentially game-changing ideas. IDA’s mission is to promote ideas over performance: a solid motivation can be as convincing as exhaustive empirical evaluation. Therefore IDA accepts all inspiring papers for both presentation and publication. In order to create an open atmosphere that encourages discussion, IDA symposia are intentionally small-scale and single-track.
Regular paper track
Authors are welcome to submit original contributions on the topic of intelligent data analysis. IDA’s mission is to promote ideas over performance. Thus, while each contribution should contain some theoretical or empirical evaluation, exhaustive evaluation is not required as long as a convincing and solid motivation is given.
Submissions will undergo a single-blind review process (author identities are known to reviewers). The conventional reviewing process, which favors incremental advances on established work, can discourage the kinds of papers that IDA 2021 aims to publish. The reviewing process will address this issue explicitly: referees will evaluate papers on the basis of novelty, technical quality, potential impact, and clarity. Furthermore, each submission will be reviewed by one of the program chair advisors. Any paper for which a program chair advisor makes a convincing argument about how it addresses the symposium’s goals will be accepted independent of the overall review score.
