PAKDD2013: The 17th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
Gold Coast, Australia
The 17th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (PAKDD 2013) is a leading international conference in the areas of data mining and knowledge discovery. It provides an international forum for researchers and industry practitioners to share their new ideas, original research results and practical development experiences from all KDD related areas, including data mining, data warehousing, machine learning, databases, statistics, knowledge acquisition and automatic scientific discovery, data visualization, causal induction and knowledge-based systems.
PAKDD 2013 seeks proposals for workshops on foundational and emerging topics in areas relevant to data mining. The PAKDD workshops provide an informal and vibrant opportunity for researchers and industry practitioners to share their research positions, original research results and practical development experiences on specific challenges and emerging issues. The workshop topics should be focused and cohesive so that the participants can benefit from interaction with each other.
A possible (non-exhaustive) list of topics include:
- Foundational topics in data mining
- Data mining and biology
- Data mining and climate change
- Data mining and finance
- Data mining in social networks
- Data mining and chemistry
- Data mining for healthcare
- Data mining for environmental sciences
- Data mining on cloud computing
- Data mining on specialized data types: structured, unstructured, semi-structured, streaming, spatio-temporal, text and noisy text, multimedia, etc.
- Real life applications and success stories
The organizers and chairs of the workshop shall have full control on the call for papers, forming of program committees, review and selection of papers as well as planning the workshop program. HOWEVER, the program committee chairs are not allowed to submit papers to the workshops to ensure a fair review process. IN ADDITION, the chairs must state in the workshop CFP the following: "Submitting a paper to the workshop means that if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the workshop to present the paper." The registration fees for workshops will be determined by the conference (not the workshop itself). The fees will be paid to the conference, and the conference will provide workshop facilities including working notes printing, meeting room, coffee break, lunch, proceedings, etc.
Each workshop will have a right to include its outstanding papers in a LNCS/LNAI post Proceedings of PAKDD Workshops published by Springer. Under the program, the workshop chair must organize a review committee to select the outstanding papers from the papers presented in the workshop. Based on the reviews, each selected paper should be further improved for the camera ready version. The average acceptance rate of this selection process should be no higher than 50%. A detailed schedule of due dates for the paper selection and the collection of the camera ready versions will be announced immediately after the workshop.
Prospective workshop organizers should send a proposal (maximum three pages) with the following sections to the PAKDD 2013 Workshop Co-Chairs.
- Title of the workshop
- Objectives, scope, and contribution to the main conference
- Names and contacts of key organizers and a tentative list of members of the program committee, along with links to their webpages.
- Expected number of papers, attendees, and preliminary workshop format
Workshops will be either have a full day or a half day format. Prior discussions of candidate workshop organizers with the workshop chairs are strongly encouraged.
