29-31 Oct, 2011 Porto, Portugal.


When the biennial IDA Symposium series started in 1995, it focused on the problem of end-to-end intelligent support for data analysis. IDA 2011 will refocus on an important and still emerging class of problems: modeling and analyzing complex dynamical systems such as economic systems, gene regulatory networks, social networks, systems of natural resources, and cognitive systems.

The Symposium seeks "first look" papers that might elsewhere be considered preliminary but contain potentially high impact research. The IDA Symposium is open to all kinds of modeling and analysis methods, irrespective of discipline. It is expected to be an interdisciplinary meeting that seeks abstractions that cut across domains. IDA2011 welcomes papers that focus on dynamic and evolving data, models, and structures.

In line with the new theme of IDA 2011, the IDA Frontier Prize will be awarded to the most visionary contribution. Submissions considered for this award must present novel and surprising approaches to data analysis in the understanding of complex systems. The award consists of a plaque and a prize of 1000 Euros.


IDA2011 solicits papers on all aspects of intelligent data analysis, particularly papers on intelligent support for modeling and analyzing complex, dynamical systems. IDA2011 particularly encourages papers about:

- Novel applications of IDA techniques to complex systems
- Novel modes of data acquisition and the associated issues
- Robustness and scalability issues of IDA techniques
- Visualization and dissemination of results

Intelligent support for data analysis goes beyond the usual algorithmic offerings in the literature. Papers about established technology will only be accepted if the technology is embedded in intelligent data analysis systems, or is applied in novel ways to analyzing and/or modeling complex systems.

The conventional reviewing process, which favors incremental advances on established work, can discourage the kinds of papers that IDA 2011 hopes to publish. The reviewing process will address this issue explicitly: referees will evaluate papers against the stated goals of
the symposium, and any paper for which at least one senior program committee member writes an informed, thoughtful, positive review will be accepted irrespective of other reviews. The proceedings of IDA2011 will appear in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
