Call for Papers Special Session Knowledge Discovery and Human-Computer Interaction in Computational Sciences
Organization: Andreas HOLZINGER - Gabriella PASI - Tanja SCHULTZ - Hugo GAMBOA
We are confronted with increased masses of data - in all domains. Research in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Information Retrieval (IR), Knowledge Discovery in Databases and Data Mining (KDD), has long been working to develop methods that help end users to identify, extract, visualize and understand useful information from huge masses of high dimensional and often weakly structured data. Our goal is to combine those efforts to support professional end users to interactively analyse information properties and to visualize the most relevant parts without getting overwhelmed. Ideally we speak of HI-CI - Human intelligence (HI) meets Computational intelligence (CI) by making computational methodologies and approaches interactively accessible to the domain expert to solve complex problems in the real world.
The challenge is to enable effective human control over powerful machine algorithms and to integrate statistical methods and information visualization, so as to support human insight, discoveries, and decision making - primary research objectives in the field of Human-Computer Interaction.
 Some hot topics of future research include but are not limited to: Human-Computer Interaction and ...
* ... Multimedia Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery (e.g. in high dimensional, weakly structured and non-standardized data)
 * ... Swarm Intelligence (collective intelligence) and collaborative Knowledge Discovery/Data Mining/Decision Making
 * ... Intelligent, interactive multivariate Information Visualization and Visual Analytics
 * ... Multimedia Data Exploration and interactive Knowledge Visualization
 * ... Time-Oriented Data and Information (e.g. longitudinal data and complex noisy time series data)
 * ... Novel Search User Interaction Techniques
 * ... Future Interaction Techniques (Note: science fiction today is science fact of tomorrow)
 * ... Modelling of Human Search Behavior and Understanding Human Information Needs
 * ... Methods and Methodologies (e.g. Support Vector Machines, Entropy Modeling, ...)
 * ... Text Mining and Interelligent Information Extraction.

 Please send your paper as pdf for review before or on May, 28, 2012 via e-Mail directly to

Papers accepted to special sessions have the same benefits as the conference papers, such as:
- Published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support
- Proceedings submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and EI (Elsevier Index).
- All papers presented at the venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library ( SciTePress is member of CrossRef (
- The papers may be selected to a book published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book, or in the Journal of Information Processing Systems (JIPS) or in the Journal of Networks (JNW).
The special session is part of the main conference - see main conference page: ICETE DATA 2012
