Submissions are due by Sunday, February 12, 2017

Registration for MLDAS 2016 is now open.

Background and Objectives

The purpose of this symposium is to bring together researchers, practitioners, students, and industry experts in the fields of machine learning, data mining, and related areas to present recent advances, to discuss open research questions, and to bridge the gap between data analytics research and industry needs on certain concrete problems.

The MLDAS symposium will serve as a platform for exchange of ideas, identification of important and challenging applications, and discovery of possible synergies.

We will address the topics of interest through both invited and contributed talks describing (1) research ideas, (2) new challenges, (3) mature research and (4) practical results. The symposium program will consist of presentations by invited speakers of both industry and academia, and by the authors of the papers submitted to the symposium. In addition, we will have a panel discussion to identify important research problems and applications.


The MLDAS symposium will take place on March 13 and March 14, 2017.

More details about MLDAS local information are available here.


MLDAS is organized by the Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI) and by The Boeing Company.


MLDAS is co-chaired by Sanjay Chawla (QCRI), Dragos Margineantu (Boeing Research & Technology), Mohammed Zaki (RPI), Jan Wei Pan, Boeing Research & Technology
