The United Kingdom Symposium on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (UK KDD or BSC AI UK KDD) is intended to provide a forum for discussion, dissemination and exchange of ideas between practitioners and researchers working within the broad field of Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD). It is organised on behalf of BCS SGAI – the British Computer Society Specialist Group on Artificial Intelligence.
Until 2017 the symposium was a full day event, afterwards an evening event only. Until 2009 it took place at different locations around the United Kingdom hosted by different universities, afterwards in London, at the BSI headquarter, only.
There have been no symposia in 2010, 2012, and 2015.
The symposium was sponsored/supported among others by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (2005-2007), the KD-net – “European” Knowledge Discovery Network of Excelllence (2005-2006), and the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) WG12.2 Machine Learning and Data Mining (2005).
