Call for Workshop Proposals The 2004 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM ‘04) Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Brighton, UK November 1-4, 2004 http://icdm04.cs.uni-dortmund.de 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 workshop’s 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. IMPORTANT DATES May 1 Deadline for proposals May 10 Notification of acceptance September 15 CR papers for proceedings due November 1 Workshops at ICDM ‘04 Submission Procedure Workshop proposals should be submitted electronically (in Postscript, PDF or MS Word) to the ICDM ‘04 Workshops Chair, Stan Matwin.
