ICDM '08: The 8th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining
--------------------------------------------------------------

December 15-19, 2008
 Pisa, Italy
 http://icdm08.isti.cnr.it/

Important Dates
---------------

 June 30, 2008         Deadline for tutorial proposals
 July 7, 2008          Deadline for paper submission
 September 15, 2008    Notification to authors
 October 7, 2008       Deadline for camera-ready copies
 December 15-19, 2008  Conference



Call for Papers
---------------

The IEEE International Conference on Data Mining series (ICDM) has
established itself as the world's premier research conference in data
mining, providing a leading 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. 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 will feature workshops, tutorials, panels, and the ICDM data
mining contest.

Paper Submissions
-----------------

High quality papers in all data mining areas are solicited. Original
papers exploring new directions will receive especially careful
consideration. Papers that have already been accepted or are currently 
under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for
ICDM '08.

Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 10 pages in the IEEE
2-column format, the same as the camera-ready format (see the IEEE
Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines at
http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/cscps/cps/final/icdm06.xml ). All
papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical
quality, relevance to data mining, originality,
significance, and clarity.
A double blind review process will be adopted.
Authors should avoid using identifying information in
the text of the paper.
A Submission Form to submit your work will be announced on the
ICDM '08 website.

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by the
IEEE Computer Society Press and accorded oral presentation times in the
main conference.
Submissions accepted as regular papers will be allocated 10 pages
in the proceedings. Submissions accepted as short papers will be
allocated 6 pages in the proceedings and will have a shorter
presentation time at the conference than regular papers.

A selected number of IEEE ICDM '08 accepted papers will be invited for
possible inclusion, in expanded and revised form, in the Knowledge  and
Information Systems journal (http://www.cs.uvm.edu/~kais/)
published by Springer-Verlag.

ICDM Best Paper Awards
----------------------

IEEE ICDM Best Paper Awards will be conferred at the conference on the
authors of (1) the best research paper and (2) the best application paper.
Strong, foundational results will be considered for the best research
paper award and application-oriented submissions will be
considered for the best application paper award.

Workshops and Tutorials
-----------------------

ICDM '08 will host short and long tutorials as well as workshops that
focus on new research directions and initiatives. All accepted
workshop papers will be included in a separate workshop proceedings
published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.

For further information on workshop and tutorial proposal submissions, 
please visit the conference website.

ICDM Data Mining Contest
------------------------

ICDM '08 will host a data mining contest to challenge researchers and
practitioners with a real practical data mining problem.
