The Second International Symposium on Intelligent Data Analysis (IDA97) was held at Birkbeck College, University of London, on 4 to 6 August 1997. The main theme of IDA97 was to reason about how to analyze data,perhaps as human analysts do, by exploiting many methods from diverse disciplines. This article outlines several key issues and challenges, discusses how they were addressed at the conference, and presents opportunities for further work in the field.
