There is no registration fee for this conference. Participants will be asked to pay a nominal amount for covering food and refreshments.


The NASA Conference on Intelligent Data Understanding (CIDU) is application-oriented with a focus on Earth & Environmental Systems, Space Science, and Aerospace & Engineering Systems.

The CIDU 2011 Program Committee is soliciting theme-oriented papers that help advance one of the aforementioned applications through machine learning or data mining techniques. We invite papers that include a clear link between the domain (application area) and machine learning / data mining. The papers should also highlight the �data understanding aspect: what new understanding was achieved via the application of machine learning / data mining methods?

All submitted papers will be judged based on their technical/scientific merit, originality, relevance and clarity. Papers submitted to CIDU 2011 should be original work, i.e., not previously published in a peer-reviewed conference or journal. While the conference is focused on the core application areas of Earth & Environmental Systems, Space Science and Aerospace & Engineering Systems, we also welcome papers that are methodology-oriented with (potential) applications relevant to one or more of these topics. Methodology papers should be motivated accordingly.

The proceedings of CIDU 2011 will be published by NASA and archived in the NASA Center for Aerospace Information, and will be indexed by DBLP. Selected papers will be invited to be extended for consideration for publication in the journal Statistical Analysis and Data Mining.


The CIDU 2011 Program Committee also solicits submissions of 2-page extended abstracts reporting new and interesting results, ideas, work-in-progress, as well as highlights of work published within the last 12 months. The topics of interest for poster submissions are the same as for the refereed paper track. Posters will be peer-reviewed based on quality and significance, and authors of accepted posters will be asked to present a technical poster during the CIDU 2011 conference. All accepted papers will also be invited to present a poster to highlight the work.


Papers submissions due: May 13, 2011
Acceptance notification: July 8, 2011
Camera-ready papers due: July 29, 2011
Poster abstracts due: July 22, 2011
Poster decision notification: August 19, 2011
Although registration is complimentary, we encourage
registration by August 31, 2011 as space is limited.


Methodology Papers
- Focus on algorithmic or methodological innovations that are relevant to one or more application areas or hold the potential for one or more applications. The authors should clearly specify the (potential) application of their work. We also invite papers that have a data visualization component.
