Call for Papers


In the current era of digital and social data, the world became more connected, networked, and traceable, with the consequent exponentially growth of data creation, sharing, and storing. In particular, data changed from static, complete, and centralized to dynamic, incomplete, and distributed; furthermore, data rapidly increased its scope and size, with the continuous increase of volumes, varieties, and velocities. All these aspects led to new challenges undertaken by the field of Big Data Analysis. Consequently, there is the need for novel computational techniques and tools able to assist humans in extracting useful information (knowledge) from the huge volumes of data.

Knowledge Discovery is an interdisciplinary area focusing upon methodologies for identifying valid, novel, potentially useful and meaningful patterns from such data, and currently is widespread in numerous fields, including science, engineering, healthcare, business, and medicine. Recently, the rapid growth of social networks and online services entailed that Knowledge Discovery approaches focused on the World Wide Web (WWW), whose popular use as global information system led to a huge amount of digital data.

KDWeb 2020 is focused on the field of Knowledge Discovery from digital data, with particular attention for Data Mining, Machine Learning, and Information Retrieval methods, systems, and applications. KDWeb 2020 is aimed at providing a venue to researchers, scientists, students, and practitioners involved in the fields of Knowledge Discovery on Data Mining, Information Retrieval, and Semantic Web, for presenting and discussing novel and emerging ideas.  KDWeb 2020  will contribute to discuss and compare suitable novel solutions based on intelligent techniques and applied in real-world applications.

The workshop is hosted by the 20th International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE 2020).

Important dates

  • Paper submissions: 26 April 2020
  • Paper acceptance notifications: 1 May 2020
  • Paper camera ready: 5 June 2020
  • Workshop day: 9 June 2020



Authors should submit an original paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, using the on-line submission procedure. Authors could submit either regular papers or long abstracts. For the submission details click here. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper there.



The workshop proceedings will be published online on CEUR Workshop Proceedings. The corresponding-authors will be notified at all time, for the submission, notification, and confirmation on the attendance. Submitting a paper to the workshop means that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the conference to present the paper and should then register to the conference with a workshop fee. As for the previous edition of KDWeb, a subset of accepted papers will be selected for being extended and published in a special issue of scientific journals. More info will be available as soon as possible.
