The Fourth SIAM International Conference on Data Mining

Hyatt Orlando, Kissimmee, Florida.
CALL FOR WORKSHOP AND TUTORIAL PROPOSALS
SDM 2004: CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
The SDM-2004 organizing committee is seeking high quality workshop
proposals. Selected workshops will focus on new challenges and initiatives
in data mining research and applications. They will foster the discussion
of exciting research directions and works in progress through paper
presentations, discussions, and invited talks. Each workshop will be
either a full-day or a half-day event.
For details about workshop submission, please visit the conference
web site: http//www.siam.org/meetings/sdm04
Workshop proposals should be sent via e-mail to the SDM-2004 Workshops
Chair, Hillol Kargupta (hillol at cs.umbc.edu), before September 3, 2003.
SDM 2004: CALL FOR TUTORIALS
The SIAM Data Mining (SDM04) Organizing Committee invites proposals for
tutorials to be held in conjunction with the conference. Tutorials are an
effective way to educate and/or provide the necessary background to the
intended audience enabling them to understand technical advances. For
SDM04, we are seeking proposals for tutorials on all topics related to
data mining. A tutorial may be a theme-oriented comprehensive survey,
discuss novel data mining techniques or may center around successful and
timely application of data mining in important application areas
(e.g. medicine, national security, scientific data analysis). For examples
of typical SIAM tutorials, see the set of accepted tutorials at previous
SIAM conferences (SDM01, SDM02 and SDM03).
Tutorials are open to all conference attendees without any extra fees. The
typical tutorial will be 2 hrs long (longer tutorials will be considered),
and held in parallel with two paper presentation tracks during the main
conference program. This format encourages participation. Previous SDM
conference attracted 50 to 100 attendees per tutorial.
For details about tutorial submission, please visit the conference web
Proposals should be submitted electronically by September 3, 2003 to
Srinivasan Parthasarathy (srini at cis.ohio-state.edu) in PDF format (for
other formats please contact the tutorial chair first).
