The basic goal of IKDD is to bring together researchers, students and industry professionals interested in theory and applications of Structured and Unstructured Data Mining, Search and Analytics. In the process we hope to improve the quality and quantity of this capability within India by organizing seminars, conferences, workshops, lecture series in areas related to search and analytics so the professionals, students, teachers, and researchers can benefit.
The main activity of the IKDD in the near future will be to conduct an annual research conference in data science called Conference on Data Sciences (CoDS), which encompasses the larger areas of data analytics, machine learning and managing big data. The CoDS will have an international program committee including excellent researchers from around the world. IKDD shall work with ACM to ensure co-sponsorship and publication of the proceedings of CoDS in the ACM digital library.
