Minding data semantics - Workshop at SIGKDD2011


Mining Data Semantics (MDS'2011) Workshop
in conjunction with SIGKDD2011 (http://www.sigkdd.org/kdd2011/)
August 21-24, 2011, San Diego, CA, USA.
The workshop aims to discuss key issues and practices of semantic 
mining. Thanks to the initiatives of the Linked Open Data and robust 
techniques for semantic annotation of Web, social, and sensor data, more 
semantic data is available. Many research efforts have been directed 
toward demonstrating semantic techniques to analyze and mine this 
growing resource. The workshop will provide a cross-disciplinary forum 
for researchers to showcase their innovation and efforts, and to further 
enhance existing bounds and create new connections among different 
communities. Here we solicit contributions on researches and practices 
of mining data semantics including theory, algorithms, and applications 
from computer science, life science, health care and other domains. In 
addition, we will organize invited talks and a panel that will discuss 
the interdisciplinary challenges of social search and mining.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Mining large scale enriched semantic data (e.g. linked data, social 
data, sensors data, etc.);
- Mining heterogeneous information networks;
- Query formulation and understanding (e.g. understanding user's 
intention or needs);
- Automatically creating ontologies or taxonomies;
- Enhancing search/mining using domain specific ontologies;
- Semantic graph mining/reasoning;
- Mining semantics of social relationships (e.g. positive or negative 
- Entity disambiguation on large scale datasets;
- Enabling social trust using provenance;
- Performance and scalability for semantic graph mining;
- Mining semantics for life science and health care;
- Visualizing semantic data;
- Mining collective intelligence and semantic-based social networks;
