Subject: KDD-08 Call for Papers, Workshops, Panels, Tutorials

The Fourteenth ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD-08)

Call for Research Papers

August 24 - 27, 2008, Las Vegas, USA

(see also call for Industry/Government Application Papers, Workshops, Panels, Tutorials at www.kdd.org/kdd2008/ and elsewhere in this issue)

###### Please Take Note of the REPEATABILITY Guideline ######

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-08 will feature keynote presentations, oral paper presentations, poster sessions, workshops, tutorials, panels, exhibits, demonstrations, and the KDD Cup competition.

We invite research submissions on all aspects of knowledge discovery and data mining overlapping with topics from machine learning, statistics, databases, and pattern recognition. Papers are expected to describe innovative ideas and solutions that are scientifically evaluated and well-presented. Submissions that describe minor variations of existing methods or only make small or questionable improvements to existing algorithms are discouraged.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Data mining algorithms
  • Data mining foundations
  • High performance and parallel/distributed data mining
  • Innovative data mining applications in bio-medicine, business, engineering, science, defense, manufacturing, and others.
  • Data mining systems
  • KDD framework and process
  • Mining stream data and sensor data
  • Mining multi-media data
  • Mining social networks and graph data
  • Mining spatial and temporal data
  • Mining text, Web and semi-structured data
  • Pre-processing and post-processing in data mining
  • Robust and scalable statistical methods
  • Security, privacy, and adversarial data mining
  • Visual data mining and data visualization
Important Dates:
  • Electronic abstract submission: February 23, 2008
  • Electronic paper submission (10 pages): February 29, 2008
  • Author notification: May 25, 2008
  • Conference dates: August 24-27, 2008
All submitted papers will be judged based on their technical merit, originality, rigor, significance, relevance, and clarity. Papers submitted to KDD-08 should be original work, not previously published in a peer-reviewed conference or journal. Papers substantially similar to papers submitted to KDD-08 should not be under review in another peer-reviewed conference or journal during the KDD-08 reviewing period.

As the SIGKDD conference enters its fourteenth year of existence, we need to take steps to ensure the long term viability of the research output of this community. A basic requirement is to enable the careful scrutiny and repeatability of evaluation results reported in a paper. Experimental results in submitted papers should be accompanied with all relevant implementation details and exact parameter specifications. Reviewers will be encouraged to downgrade ratings of papers that do not meet this guideline. Datasets used in the experiments should be made publicly available, whenever possible. When you must use proprietary datasets, please make every effort to supplement your results with those from closely matching synthetic datasets or other public datasets.

Detailed submission instructions will be provided on the conference submission website. All submissions will be handled electronically.
