The 8th International Symposium on Intelligent Data Analysis is sponsored by:
Our aim for the 8th IDA conference is to bring together a wide variety of researchers - academic, industrial, and otherwise - who are concerned with extracting knowledge from data including researchers from statistics, machine learning, neural networks, computer science, pattern recognition, database management, and other areas.
The strategies adopted by people working in these areas are often different, and a synergy results if this is recognised. IDA-2009 is intended to stimulate interaction between these different areas, so that more powerful techniques and tools emerge for extracting knowledge from data and a better understanding is developed for the process of intelligent data analysis.
This is the eighth Symposium on Intelligent Data Analysis after the successful symposia
The IDA conference series intends to provide an international forum for the discussion of the innovative outstanding research results in the field of intelligent data analysis, becoming one of the most significant conferences on this topic world-wide. Contributions in this field deal with either theoretical or applied real-world problems making special effort in introducing novel data analysis techniques.
