The 8th International Conference on Discovery Science (DS'05) will be held in Singapore, Marina Mandarin Hotel, from 8-11 of  October 2005. DS'05 will be collocated with ALT'05, the 16th International Conference on Algorithmic Learning Theory. The two conferences will be held in parallel, and they will share their invited talks.

The proceedings of DS'05 will appear in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence by Springer-Verlag as in previous years.

Equipment for oral presentation: Computer projector, traditional overhead projector, flipchart and whiteboard will be available. Also a laptop will be available in each presentation room, while we expect most authors will bring their own laptop.

DS 2005 features a new mentoring program. Student authors are invited to submit a paper draft on or before the mentoring deadline. They will receive comments from a PC member that will help them to prepare the final submission.
