Final CFP: KDD'07 Workshop on Domain Driven Data Mining

                        Call for Papers
  2007 ACM SIGKDD Workshop on Domain Driven Data Mining (DDDM 2007)
            San Jose, California, USA, 12th August 2007

     In conjunction with ACM SIGKDD International Conference on
            Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD'07)



The "2007 ACM SIGKDD Workshop on Domain Driven Data Mining (DDDM2007)"
aims to provide a premier forum for sharing findings, knowledge,
insight, experience and lessons in tackling potential challenges in
discovering actionable knowledge from complex domain problems,
promoting interaction and filling the gap between academia and
business, and driving a paradigm shift from interesting hidden
pattern mining to actionable knowledge discovery in varying data
mining domains.

The workshop welcomes theoretical and applied disseminations that
make efforts (1) to expose next-generation data mining methodology for
actionable knowledge discovery, identifying how KDD techniques can better
contribute to critical domain problems in theory and
practice; (2) to uncover domain-driven data mining techniques
identifying how KDD can better strengthen business intelligence in complex
enterprise applications; (3) to disclose the applications of domain-driven
data mining identifying how KDD can be effectively
deployed into solving complex practical problems; and (4) to identify
challenges and directions for future research and development in the
dialogue between academia  and business.


The SIGKDD DDDM2007 Workshop solicits original theoretical and
practical research on topics including, but not limited to, the
following aspects:
* Domain-driven data mining methodology and project management
* Domain-driven KDD infrastructure and system support
* Knowledge actionability and actionable knowledge discovery framework *
Involvement of human intelligence, domain intelligence,
   web intelligence
* Mining in-depth patterns and deep data intelligence
* Intelligence meta-synthesis in KDD
* Human-centered mining and human-mining interaction
* Activity, impact, event, process and workflow mining
* Unbalanced, constraint, dynamic and stream mining
* Reliability, trust, privacy, utility, issues in data mining
* Enterprise-oriented, spatio-temporal, multiple source mining
* Ontology and knowledge engineering and management
* Computational performance and actionability enhancement
* Domain specific mining such as security mining, bioinformatic
   mining, etc.

Submission Instructions
Interested authors should submit their papers as an email attachment to
the Co-Chair (kdd at of the ACM SIGKDD Workshop on Domain
Driven Data Mining (DDDM 2007). Submissions should be prepared using the
standard ACM format
( in MS Word or PDF
format. Manuscripts must not exceed 10 pages, and present a cover page
which should include the paper title, author(s), authors' affiliations,
e-mail addresses, contact numbers, postal address, and an abstract.

Important dates

Submission of Papers: May 20, 2007
Notification: June 20, 2007
Camera Ready: July 10, 2007

Publication Plans

The workshop proceeding will be made available in the workshop and online.
Selected papers from the workshop will be invited for
consideration of publication in a special issue of a leading related
journal and as a book chapter by Springer (to be confirmed). Some of the
selected papers will be considered to be published in the Trends &
Controversies department in IEEE Intelligent Systems magazine
( Details of the special issue and book
publication will be announced on the workshop website later.
