KDCloud - Knowledge Discovery Using Cloud and Distributed Computing Platforms

More information about the workshops can be found on the website of ICDM:


ICDM Demos

We invite proposals for demonstrations to be displayed at the Demo
Session that will be organized during the ICDM 2012 conference. Demos
of data mining software that incorporate state-of-the-art techniques,
provide an innovative user interface, and/or allow for fluent
interaction with the user are highly encouraged. Demonstrated software
is not required to be ready for commercial application, as long as it
is of interest to the ICDM community.

A demo is for:
- demonstrating data mining software systems and libraries closely
related to the area of data mining and knowledge discovery;
- showing new technological advances in applying data mining techniques.

For submission instructions and more information, go to


or contact the demo chairs:
- Matthijs van Leeuwen (KULeuven, Belgium, matthijs.vanleeuwen at cs.kuleuven.be)
- Francesco Bonchi (Yahoo! Research, Spain, bonchi at yahoo-inc.com)

ICDM Tutorials

ICDM '12 will host short and long tutorials as well as workshops
that focus on new research directions and initiatives. The tutorials
will be part of the main conference technical program, and are free
of charge to the attendees of the conference. Further, the conference
provides the following support per tutorial: a honorarium of $500 and
one complimentary registration for a tutorial presenter who is not
also a presenting author.

We invite proposals for 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. A tutorial should
not mainly focus on only the presenter's previous work. Tutorials on
interdisciplinary directions, novel and fast growing directions, and
significant applications are highly encouraged. ICDM will provide an
honorarium for each tutorial. It is possible, depending on actual
conference attendance, that the conference can (partly) support travel
and subsistence expenses for tutorial speakers. Please provide an
estimate for these expenses in your proposal if you are expecting the
conference to cover these expenses for you. We will assume that the
tutorial speakers will be able to cover these expenses from their own
sources if no estimate is included in their proposals.

For submission instructions and more information, go to


or contact the tutorial chairs:
- Toon Calders (Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands,
t.calders at tue.nl)
- Nikolaj Tatti (University of Antwerp, Belgium,
nikolaj.tatti at gmail.com)

ICDM PhD Student Forum

The IEEE Int. Conference on Data Mining will host for the second year
a PhD Forum on Data Mining. The aim of the Forum is to provide an
international environment in which students can meet and exchange
their ideas and experiences both with peers and with senior researchers
from the Data Mining Community. The Forum is particularly aimed at
PhD students in the early stages of their career and Master’s students
planning to pursue their research in a PhD programme.

For submission instructions and more information, go to


or contact the chairs of the PhD student forum:
- Yann-Ael Le Borgne (University of Brussels, Belgium,
yleborgn at ulb.ac.be)
- Evimaria Terzi (Boston University, USA, evimaria at cs.bu.edu)

About ICDM

The IEEE International Conference on Data Mining series (ICDM) has
established itself as the world's premier research conference in data
mining. ICDM '12 provides a leading international forum for the
presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and
dissemination of innovative ideas, drawing researchers and
practitioners from a wide range of data mining related areas such as
statistics, machine learning, pattern recognition, databases,
visualization, and high performance computing. By promoting novel,
high quality research findings, and innovative solutions to
challenging data mining problems, the conference seeks to continuously
advance the state-of-the-art in data mining. Besides the technical
program, the conference will feature invited talks from research and
industry leaders, as well as workshops, tutorials, panels, and the
ICDM data mining contest.
