Call for Workshop Proposals
The 2004 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM 04)
Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society
November 1-4, 2004
The ICDM 04 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops
to be held in conjunction with the conference. The purpose of these
workshops is to provide participants with an informal setting for
discussing innovative work in progress on important new technical
directions.Workshops will be held on November 1, immediately preceding
the conference on November 2-4. Researchers and practitioners from all
areas of the data mining community are invited to submit proposals for
review. The organizers of approved workshops are expected to define the
workshops focus, gather and review submissions, and decide upon
final program content.Although the format of the workshop also is to be
determined by the organizers, substantial time should be allotted for
discussion. Two sucessful workshop formats that worked in the past
(somehow complementary) are: (1) a focused, technical area with a large
enough community to sustain it (e.g. Techniques and
representations for text clustering), or a cross-field topic
attractive to reserachers from several sub-communities (e.g.
Privacy and Security of Genetic and Bioinformatics Data).
The schedule for submission and preparation of workshop papers also
will be left to the discretion of the workshop organizers. Because ICDM
will handle publication of the informal workshop proceedings, we ask
that (1) workshop papers be prepared in the same format as ICDM
conference papers (Latex style file available here), (2) workshop
papers adhere to a 10 page limit (2 pages longer than the conference
limit), and (3) workshop organizers prepare the camera-ready
proceedings by October 15.

How to Propose a Workshop
Proposals for workshops should be at most five pages in length (fewer
if possible) and should contain:
· A brief description of the specific technical issues that the
workshop will address
· The reasons why the workshop is of interest at this time.
· The names, postal address, phone and fax numbers and email
addresses of the Workshop Organizing Committee. This committee should
consist of at least three experts in the field, not all at the same
· The name of one member of the Workshop Organizing Committee who
is designated the contact person.
· A list of previously-organized related workshops by any of the
Workshop Organizing Committee. Previous experience organizing
workshops is not a requirement.
· A list of potential attendees.
· A draft workshop Call for Papers.
· A list of audio-visual or technical requirements and any
special room requirements.
Potential workshop proposers may wish to look at web pages from
ICDM01 Workshops and ICDM02 Workshops.
