Multi-dimensional Data Association and inTelligent Analysis (MDATA 2021)


With the fast development of information technologies, big data has emerged from various applications of many areas. Extracting knowledge and fusion analysis from big data have become important but challenging tasks. Though a plenty of theoretical theories and novel techniques have been proposed, the following challenges are still unsolved. First, extracted knowledge from multiple dimension could be different and fusing knowledge is not addressed currently. Second, knowledge varies by spatio-temporal dynamics; however, existing knowledge management theories (such as database and knowledge graph) cannot handle them. Third, the proportion of valuable data is small with the increasing amount of big data, intelligent analysis methods are urgently in need. Hence, new methods and theories are needed to associate data from multiple dimensions and to analyze from big data more intelligently.

This workshop, collocated with the 6th IEEE International Conference on Data Science in Cyberspace (IEEE DSC2021), will bring big data researchers together to exchange their ideas, innovations, and novel methods for multi-dimensional data association and intelligent analysis. Research from various domains, including but not limited to knowledge representation, knowledge management, data fusion and association, big data mining, knowledge verification, big data applications are highly appreciated. Attendees are invited to introduce their latest research results on multi-dimensional data association and intelligent analysis theories/innovations/algorithms and how these innovations can be applied in real-world applications.
