During the past years, the ACM SIGKDD conference has established
itself as the premier international conference on knowledge discovery
and data mining with an attendance of 600-900 people. To continue
with this tradition, the tenth ACM SIGKDD conference will provide
a forum for researchers from academia, industry, and government,
developers, practitioners, and the data mining user community
to share their research and experience. The SIGKDD conference
will feature keynote presentations, oral paper presentations,
poster presentations, workshops, tutorials, and panels, as well
as the KDD Cup competition. Papers on all aspects of knowledge
discovery and data mining are solicited.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Applications of data mining (biomedical, e-commerce, defense)
- Data and result visualization
- Data mining and data warehousing
- Data mining for community generation, social network analysis,
and graph-structured data
- Foundations of data mining
- KDD framework and process
- Mining data streams
- Mining high-dimensional data
- Mining text and semi-structured data
- Multi-media data mining
- Novel data mining algorithms
- Spatial and temporal data mining
- Security and privacy issues
- Interactive and online data mining
- Pre-processing and post-processing for data mining
- Robust and scalable statistical methods

Abstracts and full papers must be submitted electronically at
the conference Web site (see URL above). Abstracts must be submitted
on or before February 20, 2004, 12 noon PST (Pacific Standard
Time). An abstract may not contain more than 250 words. No paper
will be considered without having the abstract submitted on time.
Full papers must be submitted on or before February 27, 2004,
at 12 noon PST. This is a FIRM deadline. Papers must be no more
than 10 pages in length, inclusive of all figures, tables, references
and appendices.  Papers should be submitted in ACM proceedings
format (two columns, 9pt font, approx. 1in margins). Templates
are available at http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html.
Papers must be submitted in PDF format. Authors are solely responsible
for ensuring that their submissions display and print properly.

All papers will be judged based on their technical merits, originality,
relevance to KDD, and presentation clarity. Papers should describe
original work that has not been published before, is not under
review elsewhere, and may not be submitted elsewhere during KDD-2004's
review period (specialized workshops with a limited audience

A separate call is being issued for industrial/government track
papers; see the conference Web site at the URL above. Reviewers
can assign research track submissions to the industrial/government
track and vice-versa, if they feel this to be more appropriate.
Calls for workshop, tutorial and panel proposals can also be
found at the conference Web site.

The KDD-2004 Best Paper awards recognize the best paper in two
categories: fundamental research and applications/applied research.
Fundamental research papers are judged by the significance and
originality of their contribution. Applications/applied research
papers are judged by the practical impact and current or potential
usefulness of the work. In both cases, the clarity and quality
of presentation are also considered.

KDD-2004 will also award scholarships to selected students to
help defray the cost of participating in the conference. Details
will appear on the conference Web site.
