Call for Workshop Proposals
ICDM '06: The 6th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining
Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society
Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong, China,
18-22 December 2006
Workshop Proposals Due: 10 April 2006
All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the Workshop Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press ===================================================================
The Program Committee of the 6th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM '06) invites proposals for Workshops. The Workshops will be held at the beginning of the Conference, December 18, 2006 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the workshop, forming the program committees, reviewing and selecting the papers, and guaranteeing high quality worthy of the prestige and range of the Conference. All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the Workshop Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press and will be available at the workshops.
The workshop organizers will also have the discretion of editing selected papers (after their expansion and revision) into books or special journal issues. Workshops may be full-day or half-day. A full-day workshop should select 20-25 regular papers, while a half-day workshop should select 10-13 regular papers, from a large number of submissions. The workshop organizers should ensure the presence of authors of accepted papers at the workshops.
Each workshop subject will focus on new research challenges and initiatives in Data Mining. The workshops should provide an informal and vibrant forum for researchers and industry practitioners to share their research results and practical development experiences in the data mining field.
Workshop Proposal Submission
Workshop proposals should include the following elements:
- Title of the workshop
- Your name, affiliation, mailing address and e-mail address
- A description of the topic of the workshop (not exceeding 200 words)
- Type of the workshop (full-day or half-day)
- A description of how the workshop will contribute to the field of
Web Intelligence and/or Intelligent Agent Technology
- A short description on how the workshop will be advertised so as
to ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors and high quality papers
After the acceptance of a workshop proposal the organizer(s) should:
- Create a "Call for papers/participation" for the workshop
- Create a Web page for the workshop, the link of which will be published
on the Conference Web site
- Create a Board of Reviewers (Program Committee)
- Review and select papers
- Schedule the workshop activities
All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity.
Those papers selected by a workshop organizer will also be reviewed by the Workshop Co-Chairs for final acceptance.
We will provide an online paper submission and review system to support the workshops.

Note: we will not have a separate workshop registration fee this year (i.e., the conference registration covers everything).For your information, the ICDM '06 conference will be co-located with the IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on Web Intelligence
(WI) and Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT) for providing synergism among the three research areas. It will provide opportunities for technical collaboration beyond that of previous conferences. The three conferences will have a joint opening, keynote, reception, and banquet. Attendees only need to register for one conference and can attend workshops, sessions and tutorials across the three conferences.
We are also planning a joint panel and joint paper sessions that discuss common problems in the three areas.
