IDA 2021 will not take place in Porto, Portugal, but will be an online event due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Advancing Intelligent Data Analysis requires novel, potentially game-changing ideas. IDA’s mission is to promote ideas over performance: while each contribution should contain some empirical evaluation, this does not need to be exhaustive as long as a convincing and solid motivation is given.

All accepted papers will be presented at the conference, either orally or as poster, and published in proceedings in Springer’s LNCS series. In order to create an open atmosphere that encourages discussion, IDA symposia are intentionally small-scale and single-track.
