ICDM 2008 Call for Tutorials

The 2008 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM'08)

December 15 - 19, 2009. Pisa, Italy.

The International Conference on Data Mining series (ICDM) is well
established as a top ranked research conference in data mining, providing
a premier forum for presentation of original research results, as well as
exchange and dissemination of innovative, practical development

The conference covers all aspects of data mining, including algorithms,
software and systems, and applications. In addition, ICDM draws
researchers and application developers from a wide range of data mining
related areas such as statistics, machine learning, pattern recognition,
databases and data warehousing, data visualization, knowledge-based
systems, and high performance computing. ICDM'08 will be the eighth
edition of the series. Please visit http://icdm08.isti.cnr.it/ for more
information about the conference.

ICDM'08 will host tutorials covering topics in data mining of interest to
the research community as well as application developers. The tutorials
will be part of the main conference technical program, and are free of
charge to the attendees of the conference.

We invite proposals for tutorials from active researchers and experienced
tutors. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art research,
development and applications in a specific data mining direction, and
stimulate and facilitate future work. A tutorial should not mainly focus
on only the presenters' previous work. Tutorials on interdisciplinary
directions, novel and fast growing directions, and significant
applications are highly encouraged.

ICDM will provide an honorarium for each tutorial. It is possible,
depending on actual conference attendance, that the conference can
(partly) support travel and subsistence expenses for tutorial speakers.
Please provide an estimate for these expenses in your proposal if you are
expecting the conference to cover these expenses for you. We will assume
that the tutorial speakers will be able to cover these expenses from their
own sources if no estimate is included in their proposals.

A tutorial proposal should be formatted in the following sections.

1. Title

2. Abstract (up to 150 words)

3. Rationale of presenting the tutorial at ICDM'08 (up to 200 words)

4. Target audience and prerequisites (up to 50 words)

5. A list of forums and their time and locations if the tutorial or a
similar/highly related tutorial has been presented by the same author(s)
before, and highlight the similarity/difference between those and the one
proposed for ICDM'08 (up to 100 words for each entry)

6. A list of tutorials on the same/similar/highly related topics given by
other people, and highlight the difference between yours and theirs (up to
100 words for each entry)

7. A list of other tutorials given by the authors, please list the titles,
the presenters and the forums only.

8. Tutors' short bio and their expertise related to the tutorial (up to
100 words per tutor)

9. An outline of the tutorial in the form of a bullet list (up to 1 page)

10. Length of the tutorial: short (1.5-2 hours) or long (3-4 hours). If
you are flexible, please indicate in the outline the content that will not
be included if a short tutorial is given.

11. A list of up to 20 most important references that will be covered in
the tutorial

12. (Optional) URLs of the slides/notes of the previous tutorials given by
the authors, and any specific audio/vedio/computer requirements for the

Please kindly send your proposals to Arno Siebes (Arno.Siebes from cwi.nl) and
Dino Pedreschi (Dino.Pedreschi from di.unipi.it) on or before *** June 30,
2008. ***

The selection results will be announced in late July.

The tutorial co-chairs,
Dino Pedreschi
