The Eleventh ACM SIGKDD International Conference
on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining

August 21-24, 2005
Chicago, IL, USA



Important Dates:

  Tutorial proposals due
  March 14, 2005

  Notification of acceptance/rejection
  April 1, 2005

  Camera-ready copy of tutorial notes due
  June 1, 2005

The KDD-2005 organizing committee invites proposals for tutorials 
to be held in conjunction with the conference. Tutorials are an 
effective way to educate conference attendees about specific topics, 
or to provide background necessary to understand technical advances. 
For KDD-2005, we are seeking proposals for tutorials of 2.5 to 3 hours 
in duration. For examples of typical KDD tutorials, see the set of 
accepted tutorials for previous conferences:

* KDD-2004: http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigkdd/kdd2004/program/tutorials/index.html
* KDD-2003: http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigkdd/kdd2003/tutorials.html
* KDD-2002: http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigkdd/kdd2002/tutorials.html
* KDD-2001: http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigkdd/kdd2001/Tutorials/tutorials.html
Proposals should be submitted electronically by March 14th to the Tutorials Chair:

	Carla E. Brodley, Tufts University
  	brodley at cs.tufts.edu
  	Submissions must be in PDF (preferred) or Postscript (No Word). 
Proposals should include the following:

* Basic information:
  Title, brief description, name and contact information for each tutor, 
  length of the proposed tutorial. Also identify any other venues in 
  which the tutorial has been or will be presented.

* Audience:
  Proposals must clearly identify the intended audience for the tutorial 
  (e.g., novice users of statistical techniques, or expert researchers 
  in text mining). What background will be required of the audience? 
  Why is this topic important/interesting to the KDD community? 
  What is the benefit to participants? 
  Provide some informal evidence that people would attend 
  (e.g., related workshops).

* Coverage:
  Enough material should be included to provide a sense of both the scope 
  of material to be covered and the depth to which it will be covered. 
  The more details that can be provided, the better (up to and including 
  links to the actual slides). Note that the tutors should NOT focus 
  mainly on their own research results. A KDD tutorial is not a forum 
  for promoting one's research or product. If, for certain parts of the 
  tutorial, the material comes directly from the tutors' own research or 
  product, please indicate this in the proposal.

* Bios:
  Brief biographical information on each tutor (including qualifications 
  with respect to the tutorial's topic).

* Special equipment (if any):
  Please indicate any additional equipment needed (if any). The standard 
  equipment includes a LCD projector, an overhead projector, a single 
  projection screen and cordless microphones.
