NtW2 -  Data Science and Advanced Analytics for Smart & Connected Communities
Type: Special Session
Starts: 10-07-2021 12:00 - 12:15

Communities around the world are rapidly changing and constantly evolving, with ever new technologies offering great promise for improved health and well-being, safety and security, accessibility and inclusivity, and economic growth. At the same time, the challenges lying at the complex intersection of technology and society have led to a steady increase of interest in highly interdisciplinary approaches that can both benefit from and help advance data science. This special session will bring together researchers, industry experts, practitioners, and potential citizen scientists who are interested in cultivating specialized and important aspects of data science and analytics in the context of smart and connected communities.

NtW1 -  Data Science Approaches for Modeling, Analyzing and Mining Networks on Networks
Starts: 10-07-2021 11:45 - 12:00

Structures built upon great quantities of networked entities, such as computer networks and social networks, have an undeniable central role in our everyday life. The need to study these complex real-world topologies, together with the growing ability to carry out these studies thanks to technological advances, recently made the use of complex network models pervasive in many disciplines such as computer science, physics, social science, as well as in interdisciplinary research environments.

Health -  Data Science in Health
Starts: 10-07-2021 16:30 - 17:45

Researchers recognize that most of the technical and research challenges that AI experts face when dealing with healthcare resources are data-related. This special session focuses on the challenges of medical data processing and analysis.  The goal of this session is to make the health sector familiar with the ways in which AI can help the health sector and frame data mining research in the context of what medical researchers can expect from their data. Topics addressing the uncertainty of machine learning methods, and explainability of back-box models, interoperability, federated databases, and integration of sources spanning the life of the patient are especially welcome, but we also welcome contributions from the wider domain of medical information processing.

  • GeoData -  EnGeoData: Environmental and Geo-spatial Data Analytics
    Type: Special Session
    Starts: 10-08-2021 16:30 - 18:00

    Environmental and geo-spatial (EnGeo) data is currently obtained by crowdsourcing and public administrations in the context of open data policies. Mining EnGeo data provides relevant insights and potential benefits to public health, medicine, and agriculture.  The analysis of EnGeo data is associated with two major challenges: 1) the integration of heterogenous data; and 2) the selection of the appropriate knowledge discovery process. The main objective of this EnGeoData session is to provide high quality research facing both challenges with theoretical and experimental approaches.

  • PraXai -  Practical applications of explainable artificial intelligence methods
    Type: Special Session
    Starts: 10-07-2021 15:00 - 16:15

    This special session focuses on bringing the research on Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) to actual applications and tools that help to better integrate them as a must-have step in every AI pipeline. We welcome papers that showcase how XAI has been successfully applied in real-world AI-based tasks, helping domain experts understand the results of a model. Moreover, we also encourage the submission of novel techniques to augment and visualize the information contained in the model explanations. Furthermore, we expect a presentation of practical development tools that make it easier for AI practitioners to integrate XAI methods into their daily work.
