As the premier international conference on Data Mining and Knowledge
Discovery, KDD 2009 provides a forum for academic researchers and
industry and government innovators to share their results and
experiences.  Researchers and practitioners will gather to present
academic and industrial papers, panels, implemented software demos,
posters, workshops, tutorials, and insights from the popular KDD Cup
competition.

New this year: a social networking platform where attendees can learn
about the proceedings, collaborate on research papers, discuss
individual sessions, receive real-time updates on the conference, and
help organize social events in Paris using the site.

will take place in beautiful downtown Paris, at the Marriott Paris
Rive Gauche Hotel, 17 Boulevard St Jacques, 75014 Paris, France.

On Monday, June 29 the Conference reception will be held at the Hotel
