Apologies for double postings.


Due to organization issues (we can't start distributing the submitted
papers for review before February 22) we have decided to extend the
deadline for submissions. The  new deadline is February 22!
This will hopefully satisfy some authors who requested an extension.


Extended Deadline (February 22, 2002)

                        International Workshop on
             Knowledge Discovery in Multimedia and Complex Data
                               (KDMCD'02)
                       Taipei, Taiwan, May 6, 2002
                    http://db.cs.ualberta.ca/kdmcd02/


 In conjunction with the Sixth Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge
 Discovery and Data Mining (PAKDD-02), Taipei, Taiwan, May 6-8 2002

OBJECTIVES
Multimedia Data Mining, also known as Knowledge Discovery from
Multimedia, is not Information Retrieval from multimedia, contrary to
popular belief, but the extraction of interesting patterns and new
facts from multimedia objects. Knowledge discovery in multimedia
databases is focused on the synergy between two fields: Knowledge
Discovery and Multimedia Databases. Knowledge discovery and data
mining, which consist in extracting valuable and relevant knowledge
from large volumes of data, have received much attention these last
years. The approaches used for knowledge discovery are non-trivial and
often domain specific, depending on the canonical mining
primitives. The data patterns discovered are typically used in
decision-making whether in business, in scientific research or
other. While significant research has been done on knowledge discovery
from large corpora, most of the approaches are related to numerical
transactional data such as market-basket analysis, web activities,
etc., thus very little has been achieved on mining multimedia data
probably due to the complexity of multimedia and multimedia
repositories.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts in digital media
c ontent analysis, state-of-art data mining and knowledge discovery in
multimedia database systems, knowledge engineers and domain experts
from diverse applied disciplines with potential in multimedia data
mining.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
The major topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:
 - Multimedia specific data mining methods and algorithms,
 - Complexity, efficiency and scalability of multimedia data mining
algorithms,
 - Multimedia data mining and interactive exploration,
 - Data and Knowledge visualization,
 - Mining and analysis of data generated by virtual reality systems,
 - Integrated data mining of text and image data,
 - Discovery in musical data,
 - Methods for the evaluation of mining results,
 - Knowledge Discovery in other complex data (Spatial, VRML, XML,
etc.),
 - Data description languages, meta data, data formats,
 - Representation of discovered knowledge for data mining in
multimedia,
 - Multimedia data representation and reuse of discovered knowledge,
 - Techniques for web multimedia preparation, including cleaning,
 - Transforming, sampling,
 - Multimedia mining methodologies for different web data types,
 - Web-content mining,
 - Internet portal and multimedia mining,
 - Multimedia applications of knowledge discovery,
 - Intelligent electronic documents, - Content-based discovery
methods.
We also encourage submissions, which present early stages of research
work, software applications and solutions.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS
Authors are invited to submit papers (not exceeding 8 pages) by
February 15, 2002. Selection will be based on originality and
contribution to the field. Manuscripts must be in English, typed in
single spaced format in no smaller than 10 point font. Each paper
should have an extra cover page with name, title, and address
(including e-mail address) of the contact author and an abstract of no
more than 200 words. Papers in postscript or PDF or RTF format should
be sent to: kdmcd-chairs at cs.ualberta.ca with subject "KDMCD2002".
All papers will be reviewed by at least three referees for technical
merit and content. Papers accepted for presentation will appear in the
workshop proceedings, which will be available to delegates at the
conference site. The best papers may be selected, and their authors
asked to prepare an extended version for book chapters edited by an
international editor.

IMPORTANT DATES
Paper submission: February 15, 2002 (extended to February 22)
Notification: March 1, 2002         (delayed to March 8)
Camera-ready: March 15, 2002        (delayed to March 22)
