The Semantic Data Mining (SEDAMI) Workshop

SEDAMI webapge is http://sedami.geist.re

The theme of the SEDAMI workshop is semantic data mining. With this workshop we aim to get an insight into the current status of research in this area. We focus mainly on methods that allow include/utilize/exploit semantic information and domain knowledge in the context of machine learning and data mining, focusing on domains and research questions that have not been deeply investigated so far and to improve solutions to classic tasks. We encourage contributions on methods, techniques and applications that are both domain-specific but also transversal to different application domains. In particular, we solicit contributions that aim to focus on semantic data mining for providing and/or enhancing interpretability, the introduction and preservation of knowledge, as well as the provisioning of explanations.

The 2nd edition of SEDAMI will be co-located with the European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML PKDD 2022).

The 1st edition of SEDAMI was co-located with 30th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-21)

Call for papers

Aims and Scope

The general goal of data mining is to uncover novel, interesting, and ultimately understandable patterns, cf. (Fayyad 1996), i.e., relating to valuable, useful and implicit knowledge. Looking at the development of data mining in the last decades, it can be observed that not only the data mining tasks used to be more restricted, but also the applied data mining workflows were simpler. Thus, recent advances of data mining and machine learning apparently bring new challenges in its practical use in data mining, including interpretability, introduction and preservation of knowledge, as well as the provisioning of explanations. Using semantic information such as domain/background knowledge in data mining is a promising emerging direction for addressing these problems, where the knowledge is typically represented in a knowledge repository, such as an ontology, or a knowledge base. The main aspect of semantic data mining, which we focus on in this workshop, is the explicit integration of this knowledge into the data mining and knowledge discovery modeling step, where the algorithms for data mining/modeling or post-processing make use of the formalized knowledge to improve the overall results.

The aim of this workshop, is to get an insight into the current status of research in semantic data mining, showing how to include/utilize/exploit semantic information and domain knowledge in the context of machine learning and data mining, focussing on domains and research questions that have not been deeply investigated so far and to improve solutions to classic tasks.

We encourage contributions on methods, techniques and applications that are both domain-specific but also transversal to different application domains. In particular, we solicit contributions that aim to focus on semantic data mining for providing and/or enhancing interpretability, the introduction and preservation of knowledge, as well as the provisioning of explanations - thus addressing important principles, methods, tools and future research directions in this emerging field.
