Call for Tutorials: 8th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM'08)
- 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.
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.
