Call for Workshop Proposals

The 16th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining

====================================================================================


The 16th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
(PAKDD 2012) is a leading international conference in the areas of data
mining and knowledge discovery. It provides an international forum for
researchers and industry practitioners to share their new ideas, original
research results and practical development experiences from all KDD related
areas, including data mining, data warehousing, machine learning, databases,
statistics, knowledge acquisition and automatic scientific discovery, data
visualization, causal induction and knowledge-based systems.

PAKDD 2012 seeks proposals for workshops on foundational and emerging topics
in areas relevant to data mining. The PAKDD workshops provide an informal
and vibrant opportunity for researchers and industry practitioners to share
their research positions, original research results and practical
development experiences on specific challenges and emerging issues. The
workshop topics should be focused and cohesive so that the participants can
benefit from interaction with each other.

A possible (non-exhaustive) list of topics include:

1.   Foundational topics in data mining
2.   Data mining and biology
3.   Data mining and climate change
4.   Data mining and finance
5.   Data mining in social networks
6.   Data mining and chemistry
7.   Data mining for healthcare
8.   Data mining for environmental sciences
9.   Data mining on cloud computing
10.  Data mining on specialized data types: structured,
unstructured,semi-structured, streaming, spatio-temporal, text and noisy
text, multimedia, etc.
11.  Real life applications and success stories
12.  Data mining for GIS
13.  Privacy aspects of data mining
14.  Data mining for security
15.  Data mining for e-Governance
16.  Data mining for rural system
17.  Data mining for manufacturing


The organizers and chairs of the workshop shall have full control on the
call for papers, forming of program committees, review and selection of
papers as well as planning the workshop program. HOWEVER, the program
committee chairs are not allowed to submit papers to the workshops to ensure
a fair review process. IN ADDITION, the chairs must state in the workshop
CFP the following: "Submitting a paper to the workshop means that if the
paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the workshop to present
the paper. For no-show authors, their affiliations will receive a
notification." The registration fees for workshops will be determined by the
conference (not the workshop itself). The fees will be paid to the
conference, and the conference will provide workshop facilities including
working notes printing, meeting room, coffee break, lunch, proceedings, etc.


Each workshop will have a right to include its outstanding papers in a
LNCS/LNAI post Proceedings of PAKDD Workshops published by Springer. Under
the program, the workshop chair must organize a review committee to select
the outstanding papers from the papers presented in the workshop. Based on
the reviews, each selected paper should be further improved for the camera
ready version. The average acceptance rate of this selection process should
be no higher than 50%. A detailed schedule of due dates for the paper
selection and the collection of the camera ready versions will be announced
immediately after the workshop.

Prospective workshop organizers should send a proposal (maximum three pages)
with the following sections to the PAKDD 2012 Workshop Co-Chairs.

* Title of the workshop
* Objectives, scope, and contribution to the main conference
* Names and contacts of key organizers and a tentative list of members of
the program committee, along with links to their webpages.
* Expected number of papers, attendees, and preliminary workshop format

Workshops will be either have a full day or a half day format. Prior
discussion of candidate workshop organizers with the workshop chair is
strongly encouraged.
