Call For Workshop Proposals, ICDM '03

Melbourne, Florida, USA
November 19 - 22, 2003

The ICDM '03 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The purpose of these workshops is to provide participants with an informal setting for discussing innovative work in progress on important new technical directions.  Workshops will be held on November 19, immediately preceding the conference on November 20-22.

Researchers and practitioners from all areas of the data mining community are invited to submit proposals for review. The organizers of approved workshops are expected to define the workshop's focus, gather and review submissions, and decide upon final program content. Although the format of the workshop also is to be determined by the organizers, substantial time should be allotted for discussion.

The schedule for submission and preparation of workshop papers also will be left to the discretion of the workshop organizers.  Because ICDM will handle publication of the informal workshop proceedings, we ask that (1) workshop papers be prepared in the same format as ICDM conference papers (Latex style file available here), (2) workshop papers adhere to a 10 page limit (2 pages longer than the conference limit), and (3) workshop organizers prepare the camera-ready proceedings by October 20.
