CD 2020 : The KDD'20 Workshop on Causal Discovery

San Diego
Event Date: August 24, 2020 - August 24, 2020
Submission Deadline: May 20, 2020
Notification of Acceptance: June 15, 2020
Camera Ready Version Due: July 15, 2020


As a basic and effective tool for explanation, prediction and decision making, causal relationships have been utilized in almost all disciplines. Traditionally, causal relationships are identified by making use of interventions or randomized controlled experiments. However, conducting such experiments is often expensive or even impossible due to cost or ethical concerns. Therefore there has been an increasing interest in discovering causal relationships based on observational data, and in the past few decades, significant contributions have been made to this field by computer scientists.

Inspired by such achievements and following the success of CD 2016 - CD 2019, CD 2020 continues to serve as a forum for researchers and practitioners in data mining and other disciplines to share their recent research in causal discovery in their respective fields and to explore the possibility of interdisciplinary collaborations in the study of causality. Based on the platform of KDD, this workshop is especially interested in attracting contributions that link data mining/machine learning research with causal discovery, and solutions to causal discovery in large scale data sets.

Papers accepted by the workshop are to be published in Proceedings of Machine Learning Research (and presented virtually on the workshop day).
