===================================================================== 
  
The IEEE International Conference on Data Mining series (ICDM) has 
established itself as the world's premier research conference in data
mining. It provides an international 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, new for this year, 
the ICDM data mining contest.

---------------------------------------------------------------
Topics of Interest
--------------------------------------------------------------- 
 
Topics related to the design, analysis, and implementation of data
mining applications are of interest. These include, but are not limited to:

Data mining foundations
 * Novel data mining algorithms in traditional areas (such as classification, 
   regression, clustering, probabilistic modeling, and association analysis)
 * Algorithms for new, structured, data types, such as arising in chemistry, 
    biology, environment, and other scientific domains 
 * Developing a unifying theory of data mining
 * Mining sequences and sequential data
 * Mining spatial and temporal datasets
 * Mining textual and unstructured datasets
 * High performance implementations of data mining algorithms 

 Mining in targeted application contexts
 * Mining high speed data streams 
 * Mining sensor data
 * Distributed data mining and mining multi-agent data
 * Mining in networked settings: web, social and computer networks, and online communities   
 * Data mining in electronic commerce, such as recommendation, sponsored
    web search, advertising, and marketing tasks

 Methodological aspects and the KDD process
 * Data pre-processing, data reduction, feature selection, and feature 
   transformation
 * Quality assessment, interestingness analysis, and post-processing
 * Statistical foundations for robust and scalable data mining
 * Handling imbalanced data
 * Automating the mining process and other process related issues 
 * Dealing with cost sensitive data and loss models
 * Human-machine interaction and visual data mining
 * Security, privacy, and data integrity

Integrated KDD applications and systems
 * Bioinformatics, computational chemistry, geoinformatics, and other 
    science & engineering disciplines
 * Computational finance, online trading, and analysis of markets
 * Intrusion detection, fraud prevention, and surveillance
 * Healthcare, epidemic modeling, and clinical research 
 * Customer relationship management
 * Telecommunications, network and systems management
 
---------------------------------------------------------------
Submission
--------------------------------------------------------------- 

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 '07.
 
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. Starting this year, a double blind review process
will be adopted. Authors should avoid using identifying information in
the text of the paper. Please use the Submission Form on the ICDM '07 
website to submit your paper.  Accepted papers will be published in the 
conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press.

All accepted papers will be published in the ICDM'07 proceedings 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 '07 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
---------------------------------------------------------------

As part of the main conference technical program, ICDM will
continue its tradition of hosting 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.

Please see the ICDM'07 website for solicitations for workshop proposals.

--------------------------------------------------------------- 
Tutorials
---------------------------------------------------------------
 
ICDM will host tutorials covering topics in data mining of interest to
the research community as well as application developers. 
Both short (2 hours) and long (half day) tutorials will be
considered.  The tutorials will be part of the main conference
technical program.

Please see the ICDM'07 website for solicitations for tutorial proposals.
