      ICDM 2008 Call for Tutorials

      The 2008 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM'08)

      December 15 - 19, 2009. Pisa, Italy.

      The International Conference on Data Mining series (ICDM) is well
      established as a top ranked research conference in data mining,
      providing a premier 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. In addition, 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. ICDM'08 will be the eighth edition of the series. Please
      visit http://icdm08.isti.cnr.it/ for more information about the

      ICDM'08 will host tutorials covering topics in data mining of
      interest to the research community as well as application developers.
      The tutorials will be part of the main conference technical program,
      and are free of charge to the attendees of the conference.

      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 mainly focus on only the presenters' 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. Please provide an estimate for these expenses in your
      proposal if you are expecting the conference to cover these expenses
      for you. 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.

      A tutorial proposal should be formatted in the following sections.

      1. Title

      2. Abstract (up to 150 words)

      3. Rationale of presenting the tutorial at ICDM'08 (up to 200 words)

      4. Target audience and prerequisites (up to 50 words)

      5. 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'08 (up to 100 words for each entry)

      6. A list of tutorials on the same/similar/highly related topics
      given by other people, and highlight the difference between yours and
      theirs (up to 100 words for each entry)

      7. A list of other tutorials given by the authors, please list the
      titles, the presenters and the forums only.

      8. Tutors' short bio and their expertise related to the tutorial (up
      to 100 words per tutor)

      9. An outline of the tutorial in the form of a bullet list (up to 1

      10. Length of the tutorial: short (1.5-2 hours) or long (3-4 hours).
      If you are flexible, please indicate in the outline the content that
      will not be included if a short tutorial is given.

      11. A list of up to 20 most important references that will be covered
      in the tutorial

      12. (Optional) URLs of the slides/notes of the previous tutorials
      given by the authors, and any specific audio/vedio/computer
      requirements for the tutorial

      Please kindly send your proposals to Arno Siebes (Arno.Siebes@...)
      and Dino Pedreschi (Dino.Pedreschi@...) on or before *** June
      30, 2008. ***

      The selection results will be announced in late July.

      The tutorial co-chairs,
