 Call for Workshop Proposals
 The 2004 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM '04)
 Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society
 Brighton, UK
 November 1-4, 2004
 The ICDM '04 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to
 be held in conjunction with the conference. The purpose of these
 workshops is to provide participants with an informal setting for
 discussing innovative work in progress on important new technical
 directions.Workshops will be held on November 1, immediately preceding
 the conference on November 2-4.
 Researchers and practitioners from all areas of the data mining
 community are invited to submit proposals for review. The organizers
 of approved workshops are expected to define the workshop's focus,
 gather and review submissions, and decide upon final program
 content.Although the format of the workshop also is to be determined
 by the organizers, substantial time should be allotted for
 discussion. Two sucessful workshop formats that worked in the past
 (somehow complementary) are: (1) a focused, technical area with a
 large enough community to sustain it (e.g. "Techniques and
 representations for text clustering"), or a cross-field topic
 attractive to reserachers from several sub-communities (e.g. "Privacy
 and Security of Genetic and Bioinformatics Data").
 The schedule for submission and preparation of workshop papers also
 will be left to the discretion of the workshop organizers. Because
 ICDM will handle publication of the informal workshop proceedings, we
 ask that (1) workshop papers be prepared in the same format as ICDM
 conference papers (Latex style file available here), (2) workshop
 papers adhere to a 10 page limit (2 pages longer than the conference
 limit), and (3) workshop organizers prepare the camera-ready
 proceedings by October 15.

 How to Propose a Workshop
 Proposals for workshops should be at most five pages in length (fewer
 if possible) and should contain:
    * A brief description of the specific technical issues that the workshop
      will address
    * The reasons why the workshop is of interest at this time.
    * The names, postal address, phone and fax numbers and email addresses of
      the Workshop Organizing Committee.  This committee should consist of at
      least three experts in the field, not all at the same institution.
    * The name of one member of the Workshop Organizing Committee who is
      designated the contact person.
    * A list of previously-organized related workshops by any of the Workshop
      Organizing Committee.  Previous experience organizing workshops is not
      a requirement.
    * A list of potential attendees.
    * A draft workshop Call for Papers.
    * A list of audio-visual or technical requirements and any special room
 Potential workshop proposers may wish to look at web pages from ICDM'01
 Workshops and ICDM'02 Workshops.
