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

August 21-24, 2005
Chicago, IL, USA



The KDD-2005 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to
be held in conjunction with the conference. The purpose of a workshop
is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss
novel research ideas on active and emerging topics of knowledge
discovery and data mining. A workshop should also support the
interaction and feedback among topic specialists from academia,
industry and government.

The organizers of approved workshops are required to announce the
workshop and call for papers, gather submissions, conduct the
reviewing process and decide upon the final workshop program. They
must also prepare an informal set of workshop proceedings to be
distributed with the registration materials at the conference. They
may choose to form organizing or program committees for assistance in
these tasks.

Workshop proposals due:  March 7, 2005 
Notification of acceptance/rejection:  March 28, 2005

Proposals should be no more than three pages in length and must
include the following:
    * Description of the workshop topic and the associated research

    * Duration of the workshop (full day or half day)
    * Contact information (address, email, phone) for all organizers,
