Areas of Interest:

The Industrial/Government Track of the Eleventh ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining will highlight successful applications of KDD technology; explore issues, methods, and lessons learned in the development and deployment of KDD applications; and promote the exchange of ideas between basic and applied data mining.

The KDD-2005 Industrial/Government (I/G) Track seeks to: (1) provide a forum for exchanging ideas between KDD practitioners, researchers, companies, and government organizations; and (2) help commercial and government organizations understand successful KDD applications. The I/G Track solicits papers from practitioners and companies that have KDD products and solutions relevant to commercial or government challenges.

The I/G Track will consist of competitively-selected contributed papers - presented in oral and poster form - as well as invited talks and panel discussions. (The full conference will also feature keynote presentations, workshops, tutorials, research track papers, and the KDD Cup competition.)

We envision submissions along three sub-areas: (1) emerging applications, technology, and issues; (2) deployed KDD case studies; and (3) Products. Emerging application, technology, and issue papers discuss prototype applications, tools for focused domains or tasks, useful techniques or methods, project "war stories", useful system architectures, scalability enablers, tool evaluations, or integration of KDD and other technologies. Case studies describe deployed projects with measurable benefits that include KDD technology. Product submissions clearly describe KDD technology embedded in commercial products (without otherwise being a product advertisement). Submitters are encouraged (but not required) to select one (or more) of these sub-areas for their papers.

In their submission, authors are encouraged to explain why the application is important, the specific need for KDD technology to solve the problem (including why other methods may fall short), and any innovations or lessons learned in the solution. We understand that reasons of confidentiality have often discouraged practitioners from submitting papers. When possible, we encourage authors to abstract any such specifics into a more general problem that may be presented, while explaining how the abstracted challenge is important for KDD.

The KDD-2005 Best Paper awards recognize the best papers in two categories: fundamental research and applications/applied research.
