[dbjapan] KDD-2009: CALL FOR TUTORIAL PROPOSALS, Due: February 23, 2009


[Apologies if you receive this more than once]

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

SUBJECT: CALL FOR TUTORIAL 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.

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

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

KDD-2009 will host tutorials covering topics in data mining of 
interest to the research community as well as application developers. 
The tutorials will be part of the main conference technical program, 
and are free of charge to the attendees of the conference.

We invite proposals for half-day tutorials from active researchers 
and experienced tutors. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the 
state-of-the-art research, development and applications in a specific 
data mining direction, and stimulate and facilitate future work. 
Tutorials on interdisciplinary directions, novel and fast growing 
directions, and significant applications are highly encouraged.

A tutorial proposal should be formatted in the following sections.

1. Title

2. Abstract (up to 150 words)

3. Target audience and prerequisites. Proposals must clearly 
identify the intended audience for the tutorial (e.g., novice 
users of statistical techniques, or expert researchers in text 
mining). What background will be required of the audience? 
Why is this topic important/interesting to the KDD community? 
What is the benefit to participants?

4. Outline of the tutorial. Enough material should be included 
to provide a sense of both the scope of material to be covered 
and the depth to which it will be covered. The more details that 
can be provided, the better (up to and including links to the 
actual slides). Note that the tutors should NOT focus mainly on 
their own research results. A KDD tutorial is not a forum for 
promoting one's research or product.

5. A list of forums and their time and locations if the tutorial 
or a similar/highly related tutorial has been presented by the 
same author(s) before, and highlight the similarity/difference 
between those and the one proposed for KDD'08 (up to 100 words 
for each entry)

6. A list of tutorials on the same/similar/highly related topics 
given by other people, and highlight the difference between yours 
and theirs (up to 100 words for each entry)

7. A list of other tutorials given by the authors, please list 
the titles, the presenters and the forums only.

8. Tutors' short bio and their expertise related to the tutorial 
(up to 200 words per tutor)

9. A list of up to 20 most important references that will be
 covered in the tutorial

10. (Optional) URLs of the slides/notes of the previous tutorials 
given by the authors, and any specific audio/video/computer
requirements for the tutorial.
