Workshop Themes:

Data analysis is a process of inspecting, cleaning, transforming, and modeling data with the goal of highlighting useful information, suggesting conclusions, and supporting decision making. Data management is the development, execution and supervision of plans, policies, programs and practices that control, protect, deliver and enhance the value of data and information assets [Wikipedia]. Data analysis and data management both have multiple facets and approaches, encompassing diverse techniques under a variety of names, in different business, science, and social science domains.

Intelligent Data Analysis

and Management (IDAM) examines issues related to the research and applications of Artificial Intelligence techniques in data analysis and management across a variety of disciplines. It is an interdisciplinary research field involving academic researchers in information technologies, computer science, public policy, bioinformatics, medical informatics, and social and behavior studies, etc. The techniques studied include (but are not limited to): data visualization, data pre-processing, data engineering, database mining techniques, tools and applications, evolutionary algorithms, machine learning, neural nets, fuzzy logic, statistical pattern recognition, knowledge filtering, and post-processing, etc.


The goal of IDAM 2014 is to gather people from previously disparate communities to provide a stimulating forum for exchange of ideas and results. We invite academic researchers (in information technologies, computer science, business and organizational studies, social studies), as well as information technology companies, industry consultants and practitioners in the fields involved. IDAM 2014 will be held in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.


Scope and Interests:

The scope of IDAM 2014 includes, but is not limited to, the following


Benchmarking and performance evaluation Data analytics Data cleaning, integration, and provenance Data mining and knowledge discovery Data models, semantics, and query languages Data privacy and security Data streams and sensor networks Data visualization Database monitoring and tuning Databases for emerging hardware Distributed and parallel databases Indexing and physical database design Information extraction Information retrieval and text mining Mobile databases Modeling approximation and uncertainty in databases Query processing and optimization Scientific databases Semi-structured data Service-oriented computing and cloud data management Social networks and graph databases Storage systems Transaction management


Paper Submissions:

We invite two types of submissions: Full Papers and Short Position Papers.

A Full Paper should provide solid conceptual and theoretical foundation and substantial support for its results and conclusions as a significant contribution to the field.

A Position Paper is not expected to be theoretically or empirically thorough, but represents an earlier stage of work. Exceptional quality papers will also be invited for further extension, and be considered for publication on journals.

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference, or workshop with proceedings. All submissions will be thoroughly peer-reviewed by multiple reviewers to ensure quality and unbiased comments. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings to be published by ACM.

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF through the conference website.

Format requirements for submissions of papers are:

- Full paper: Maximum 6 pages, plus max 2 paid pages

- Short paper: Maximum 4 pages

- All submissions should be formatted according to ACM guidelines


- Submissions must be entered into the Submission System




This workshop will take place at National University of Kaohsiung, Taiwan
