Apologies for multiple postings

			PAKDD 2006
10th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
               Singapore, April 9 - 12, 2006
	 	   Call for Tutorials


The PAKDD series of conferences is an established and prestigious
forum for the exchange of the latest research results in data mining. 
Held annually at attractive Australasian cities, the conference
provides unique opportunities for data mining researchers,
practitioners, developers, and users to explore new ideas, techniques,
and tools, and to exchange experiences. The previous events were held
in Singapore, Melbourne, Beijing, Kyoto, Hong Kong, Taipei, Seoul,
Sydney, and Hanoi. PAKDD 2006 will be once again held in Singapore. 

An integral part of PAKDD 2006 is the tutorial program. Presenters are
invited to submit proposals for tutorials in all areas of data
mining. Tutorials will typically be either full-day (6 hrs) or
half-day (3 hrs). The tutorial proposal should include the following:

                *Full-day or half-day tutorial
                *A brief summary of the topic
                *Outline including a short summary of every section
                *Specific goals and objectives
                *Expected background of the audience
                *A biographical sketch of the presenter(s)
                *Audio Visual equipment needed for the presentation

We will consider proposals for introductory and advanced tutorials on
any Data Mining topic, but original tutorials not yet or recently
presented elsewhere will be favoured. Introductory tutorials should
target an audience consisting of advanced undergraduate and graduate
students, as well as attendees from industry. Suggested tutorial
topics are those of the conference themes, which can be found at

The proposal should be no more 5 pages in length. Attach a cover sheet
to each copy with the presenter's name, affiliation, address, email,
phone, and fax. Submission must be received by October 31,
2005. Please submit your proposals via email to one of Tutorial
                *Sourav S Bhowmick (assourav AT ntu.edu.sg)
                *Osmar Zaiane (zaiane AT cs.ualberta.ca)

Proposals will be evaluated by a committee and voted upon based on
merit and relevance. The presenter of a selected tutorial will receive
an honorarium. Multiple presenters split the honorarium per their
specification. They will be required to provide comprehensive tutorial
notes (printable slides) prior to the event, which will then be
published on the PAKDD web site and thus be made available to
conference attendees free of charge. 

Tutorials will be presented during the main PAKDD conference as
parallel sessions.
