2nd Call for Papers: Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining Meets Linked 
Open Data

Third International Workshop on
Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining Meets Linked Open Data
(Know@LOD 2014)

Co-located with the 11th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2014)
May 25-29, Crete, Greece


The third international workshop on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining 
Meets Linked Open Data (Know@LOD) will be held at the 11th Extended 
Semantic Web Conference (ESWC).

Knowledge discovery and data mining (KDD) is a well-established field 
with a large community investigating methods for the discovery of 
patterns and regularities in large data sets, including relational 
databases and unstructured text. Research in this field has led to the 
development of practically relevant and scalable approaches such as 
association rule mining, subgroup discovery, graph mining, and 
clustering. At the same time, the Web of Data has grown to one of the 
largest publicly available collections of structured, cross-domain data 
sets. While the growing success of Linked Data and its use in 
applications, e.g., in the e-Government area, has provided numerous 
novel opportunities, its scale and heterogeneity is posing challenges to 
the field of knowledge discovery and data mining.

Contributions from the knowledge discovery field may help foster the 
future growth of Linked Open Data. Some recent works on statistical 
schema induction, mapping, and link mining have already shown that there 
is a fruitful intersection of both fields. With the proposed workshop, 
we want to investigate possible synergies between both the Linked Data 
community and the field of Knowledge Discovery, and to explore novel 
directions for mutual research. We wish to stimulate a discussion about 
how state-of-the-art algorithms for knowledge discovery and data mining 
could be adapted to fit the characteristics of Linked Data, such as its 
distributed nature, incompleteness (i.e., absence of negative examples), 
and identify concrete use cases and applications.

Submissions have to be formatted according to the Springer LNCS 
guidelines. We welcome both full papers (max 12 pages) as well as 
work-in-progress and position papers (max 6 pages). Accepted papers will 
be published online via CEUR-WS, with a selection of the best papers of 
each ESWC workshop appearing in an additional volume edited by Springer. 
Papers must be submitted online via Easychair at

Topics of interest include data mining and knowledge discovery methods 
for generating and processing, or using linked data, such as
- Automatic link discovery
- Event detection and pattern discovery
- Frequent pattern analysis
- Graph mining
- Knowledge base debugging, cleaning and repair
- Large-scale information extraction
- Learning and refinement of ontologies
- Modeling provenance information
- Ontology matching and object reconciliation
- Scalable machine learning
- Statistical relational learning
- Text and web mining
- Usage mining
