SUBJECT: CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS, Due: January 19, 2009

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

Paris, France
June 28 - July 1, 2009.

http://www.kdd.org/kdd2009/

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

The ACM KDD-2009 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. 
A WORKSHOP MAY BE ORGANIZED AROUND INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS IN A 
PARTICULAR DOMAIN AND THE CHALLENGES THIS DOMAIN POSES (SUCH AS THE 
NETFLIX WORKSHOP FOR RECOMMENDATION SYSTEMS)

Workshops that include a challenge problem, such as the one on 
time series classification that took place in 2007, are encouraged. 
A session with papers that address a challenge complements the 
more diverse sessions with regular papers and improves the 
potential for discussion. Because such challenges require extra 
time to plan, we may be willing to provide early notice of acceptance.

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 
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-2009 organizers.
