                                             ICDM'13: Call for
                                             Tutorial Proposals


Important Dates August 3, 2013: Deadline for submission of
tutorial proposals September 20, 2012: Notification of acceptance

Tutorials at IEEE ICDM The IEEE International Conference on Data
Mining series (ICDM) has established itself as the world's
premier research conference in data mining. It provides an
international forum for presentation of original research
results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative,
practical development experiences. The conference covers all
aspects of data mining, including algorithms, software and
systems, and applications. ICDM draws researchers and application
developers from a wide range of data mining related areas such as
statistics, machine learning, pattern recognition, databases and
data warehousing, data visualization, knowledge-based systems,
and high performance computing. By promoting novel, high quality
research findings, and innovative solutions to challenging data
mining problems, the conference seeks to continuously advance the
state-of-the-art in data mining. Besides the technical program,
the conference features workshops, tutorials, panels and, since
2007, the ICDM data mining contest.

ICDM '13 will host short and long tutorials as well as workshops
that focus on new research directions and initiatives. The
tutorials will be part of the main conference technical program,
and are free of charge to the attendees of the conference.
Further, the conference provides the following support for each
long/short tutorial: a honorarium of $500 and one complimentary
registration for a tutorial presenter who is not also a
presenting author.

We invite proposals for tutorials from active researchers and
experienced tutors. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the
state-of-the-art research, development and applications in a
specific data mining direction, and stimulate and facilitate
future work. A tutorial should not only focus on the presenter's
previous work. Tutorials on interdisciplinary directions, novel
and fast growing directions, and significant applications are
highly encouraged. ICDM will provide an honorarium for each
tutorial. It is possible, depending on actual conference
attendance, that the conference can (partly) support travel and
subsistence expenses for tutorial speakers. If you are expecting
the conference to cover these expenses for you, please provide an
estimate for these expenses in your proposal, and indicate
whether the requested expense support is a necessity for you to
present the tutorial. We will assume that the tutorial speakers
will be able to cover these expenses from their own sources if no
estimate is included in their proposals.

Format of the Submission A tutorial proposal should be formatted
in the following sections:

    Title Abstract (up to 150 words) Topic overview: What will
    the tutorial be about? Why do you believe this is an
    interesting and significant subject for the machine learning
    and data mining community at large? Content details: An
    outline of the tutorial in the form of a bulleted list with
    references and estimates for the time that will be devoted to
    each subject. (up to 1 page) Target audience and
    prerequisites (up to 100 words): From which areas do you
    expect potential participants to come? What prior knowledge,
    if any, do you expect from the audience? What will the
    participants learn? How many participants do you expect?
    Relevance and rationale of presenting the tutorial at ICDM
    2013 (up to 200 words) A list of forums and their time and
    locations if the tutorial or a similar/highly related
    tutorial has been presented by the same author(s) before, and
    highlight the similarity/difference between those and the one
    proposed for ICDM 2013 (up to 100 words for each entry) A
    list of tutorials on the similar/highly related topics given
    by other people, and highlight the difference between yours
    and theirs (up to 100 words for each entry) A list of other
    tutorials given by the authors, please list the titles, the
    presenters and the forums only. Tutor's short bio and their
    expertise related to the tutorial (up to 100 words per tutor)
    Length of the tutorial: short (1.5-3 hours) or long (3-6
    hours). If you are flexible, please indicate in the outline
    the content that will not be included if a short tutorial is
    given. A list of up to 20 most important references that will
    be covered in the tutorial (Optional) URLs of the
    slides/notes of the previous tutorials given by the authors,
    and any specific audio/video/computer requirements for the
