KDD-2001: The Seventh ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining August 26-29, 2001, San Francisco, CA, USA Register online at http://www.acm.org/sigkdd/kdd2001/ KDD-2001, the premier annual data mining conference organized by the scientists and practitioners who popularized data mining in the mid 1990's, is a must-attend conference, featuring state-of the art keynote talks, free tutorials by experts from academia and industry, rigorously selected technical and industrial papers, the KDD-Cup data mining competition, and more. With over 900 attendees from 34 countries, KDD-2000 held in Boston last year was a great success, bringing together the top minds from academia and the leading industrial practitioners to allow the two groups to share insights and educate attendees who were newer to data mining. Roughly 40% of attendees were from academia, 60% from business. Highlights of the conference this year include: * Keynote presentations by leaders in the field on collaboration, knowledge discovery in biology, and more! * Industrial track invited talks on mining e-commerce data, recommendation systems, predictive modeling, and more * Tutorials -- free with the registration! -- featuring e-business, frequent-pattern mining, outlier analysis, value-based mining, mobile data mining, and advances in decision trees * KDD-Cup 2001: results from this year's genomics and drug design competition * Workshops on visualization, multimedia, scientific data, weblog analysis, bioinformatics, and temporal data * Panels on sampling, data mining startup companies, and new research directions * Exhibits from over 26 leading software & hardware vendors and academic projects * Technical paper presentations from 20 authors, plus 32 poster presentations giving attendees a chance to talk directly with the authors * Industry track papers presented by 12 teams from leading companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Verizon, and others -- learn how the most successful companies put data mining into practice! See the conference schedule and full details at http://www.acm.org/sigkdd/kdd2001 and register online by following the links from the conference homepage. Register by August 3rd to save over $100, and be sure to book hotel rooms early for discounted rates! With the first-rate program summarized above, there is something for everyone at KDD-2001 and you won't want to miss this once-a-year opportunity to meet and share knowledge with your data-mining colleagues from around the world.
