The Interactive Data Exploration and Analytics (IDEA) workshop addresses the development of data mining techniques that allow users to interactively explore their data. We focus and emphasize on interactivity and effective integration of techniques from data mining, visualization and human-computer interaction (HCI). In other words, we explore how the best of these different but related domains can be combined such that the sum is greater than the parts. Last year's IDEA at KDD 2013 in Chicago was a great success.
In total 16 papers were accepted for presentation at IDEA 2014. We selected 9 for oral presentation, and 7 for presenting a poster & giving an interactive demo.Download IDEA'14 proceedings (25MB)

We have entered the era of big data. Massive datasets, surpassing terabytes and petabytes, are now commonplace. They arise in numerous settings in science, government, and enterprises. Today, technology exists by which we can collect and store such massive amounts of information. Yet, making sense of these data remains a fundamental challenge. We lack the means to exploratively analyze databases of this scale. Currently, few technologies allow us to freely "wander" around the data, and make discoveries by following our intuition, or serendipity. While standard data mining aims at finding highly interesting results, it is typically computationally demanding and time consuming, thus may not be well-suited for interactive exploration of large datasets.
Interactive data mining techniques that aptly integrate human intuition, by means of visualization and intuitive human-computer interaction (HCI) techniques, and machine computation support have been shown to help people gain significant insights into a wide range of problems. However, as datasets are being generated in larger volumes, higher velocity, and greater variety, creating effective interactive data mining techniques becomes a much harder task.
Our focus and emphasis is on interactivity and effective integration of techniques from data mining, visualization and human-computer interaction. In other words, we intend to explore how the best of these different but related domains can be combined such that the sum is greater than the parts.
All papers will be peer reviewed, single-blinded. We welcome many kinds of papers, such as (and not limited to):
Authors should clearly indicate in their abstracts the kinds of submissions that the papers belong to, to help reviewers better understand their contributions. Submissions must be in PDF, written in English, no more than 10 pages long — shorter papers are welcome — and formatted according to the standard double-column ACM Proceedings Style (Tighter Alternate style).
For accepted papers, at least one author must attend the workshop to present the work.
For paper submission, proceed to the IDEA 2014 submission website.
