Subject: KDD-08 Call For Workshop Proposals, due Feb 15

August 24 - 27, 2008, Las Vegas, USA

The ACM KDD-2008 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The purpose of a workshop is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas on active and emerging topics of knowledge discovery and data mining. A workshop should also support the interaction and feedback among topic specialists from academia, industry and government.

At KDD 2007, one workshop combined a challenge problem (time series classification) with more general workshop. Attendees participated in the challenge in the months before the conference, and then attended the workshop to present their solutions and to be debriefed. We encourage such challenge-workshops in this year’s KDD conference. Because such challenge-workshops require extra time to plan, we may be willing to provide early notice of acceptance, contact Dr. Keogh for details.

The organizers of approved workshops are required to announce the workshop and call for papers, gather submissions, conduct the reviewing process and decide upon the final workshop program. They must also prepare an informal set of workshop proceedings to be printed with the help of ACM KDD-2008 organizers and distributed with the registration materials at the conference. They may choose to form organizing or program committees for assistance in these tasks. The logistics of the workshops will be done with the help from the ACM KDD-2008 organizers.
