SUBJECT: CALL FOR PANEL PROPOSALS, Due: February 23, 2009

KDD-2009: The Fifteenth ACM SIGKDD International Conference
on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD'09)

Paris, France
June 28 - July 1, 2009.

=====================================================================

The KDD-2009 organizing committee invites proposals for panels to 
be held at the conference. Panel proposals should address emerging, 
controversial and critical issues in data mining that would likely 
to have a lasting impact on the field and would also lead to 
exciting discussions and debates. A mix of industry, academic and 
government participants is encouraged.

For this year's conference we are interested in addressing new 
topics, particularly centered around human issues related to data
 mining (e.g., privacy, ethics, cultural differences, applications 
and implications of data mining on end users, SOCIETAL BENEFITS, 
ECONOMIC IMPACTS etc.).

Proposal Details Panel proposals should be no more than four pages 
long and should include the following:

 * Title of the panel
 * The topic and issues to be discussed in the panel
 * Name, affiliation, and contact information for the panel organizer
 * Names and affiliations of up to four panelists (in addition to the 
   panel organizer) who have made a commitment to participate
 * List of 10 questions that the panel organizer will ask the panelists
 * Brief biography of each participant 

IMPORTANT: the KDD 09 panels will be summarized in a paper that will 
be published in the conference proceedings. Therefore, the panel 
organizer will be requested to collect from the panelists, in writing, 
the responses to some of the questions well in advance of the 
conference. The conference panel chair (A. Jaimes) will collect the 
materials and work with the panel organizers selected to produce the 
paper. The motivation for having the paper is two-fold: make the 
panelists' perspectives available after the conference, and ensure 
that panelists (and audience) give considerable thought to the issues 
prior to the panel.
