Subject: KDD 2009: call for workshop papers, due mid April to late May

The organizing committee of the KDD-09 conference invites you to submit your latest research to one of the 11 workshops that will be held on June 28th (Sunday). This year, KDD-09 will feature workshops on a variety of hot topics and will also include one workshop associated with the KDD Cup as well as four workshops that include challenges. So besides providing you the opportunity to present and discuss the latest developments and applications in DM, they will enable you to put your best technology to the test. The deadlines for submission are between mid April and late May (details below).

For those who are unable to attend the full program of KDD-09, the organizers are introducing a new registration option besides full participation: "Workshops, Tutorials, and Evenings" (or, "Nights and Weekends"). This enables you to participate all day Sunday, for the workshops and tutorials, as well as the evenings (5pm+ Sunday - Tuesday), which feature invited industry talks, receptions, dinners, and technical poster sessions. (It omits, however, the full technical program during the 3 days, Mon-Wed.) For more information, check the registration page at http://www.sigkdd.org/kdd2009/registration.html

The annual ACM SIGKDD conference is the premier international forum for data mining researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government to share their ideas, research results and experiences. KDD-09 will be held in Paris, France, from June 28th to July 1st and will feature keynote presentations, oral paper presentations, poster sessions, workshops, tutorials, panels, exhibits, demonstrations, and the KDD Cup competition.

Bienvenue à Paris

Full-day workshops

W1: Statistical and Relational Learning and Mining in Bioinformatics (StReBio'09)

Organizers: Jan Ramon, Fabrizio Costa, Christophe Costa Florencio, Joost Kok


Submission deadline: 20-Apr
Challenge: Yes
URL: http://www.cs.kuleuven.be/~dtai/events/StReBio09/

Summary: Bioinformatics is an application domain where information is naturally represented in terms of relations between heterogenous objects. Modern experimentation and data acquisition techniques allow the study of complex interactions in biological systems. This raises interesting challenges because the amount of data is huge,some information can not be observed, and measurements may be noisy. The StReBio'09 workshop invites contributions concerning applications of statistical relational learning and mining methods in bio-informatics domains. In particular, the workshop invites both regular papers, problem statements and problem solution papers.

W2: The 3rd International Workshop on Knowledge Discovery from Sensor Data (SensorKDD-2009)

Summary: Wide-area sensor infrastructures, remote sensors, RFIDs, and
wireless sensor networks yield massive volumes of disparate, dynamic,
and geographically distributed data. The Sensor-KDD 2009 workshop
solicits papers that describe innovative solutions in offline data
mining and/or real-time analysis of sensor or streaming data. Position
papers that describe the challenges and requirements for sensor data
based knowledge discovery in high-priority application domains, as
well as relevant case studies, are particularly encouraged.

Summary: The goal of Visual Analytics is to derive insight from massive, dynamic, ambiguous, and often conflicting data; detect the expected and discover the unexpected; provide timely, defensible, and understandable assessments; and communicate the assessment effectively for action. The goal of this workshop is to raise the awareness of the KDD community for the importance of Visual Analytics and bring together researcher from the underlying fields to bridge the gap between them -- to write a KDD research roadmap on Visual Analytics.

W5: The Third International Workshop on Data Mining and Audience Intelligence for Advertising (ADKDD’09)

Organizers: Ying Li, Arun C. Surendran, Dou Shen


Submission deadline: TBA
Challenge: No
