KDD2010 Workshops

Workshop Proposal Due: February 1, 2010

KDD-2010 The Sixteenth ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD-2010), July 25-28, 2010, Washington D.C., USA

Workshop Co-Chairs

  • Irwin King, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
  • Gabor Melli, Predictionworks, Vancouver, Canada


The ACM KDD-2010 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The purpose of a workshop is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas on active and emerging topics of knowledge discovery and data mining. A workshop should also support the interaction and feedback among topic specialists from academia, industry and government. A WORKSHOP MAY BE ORGANIZED AROUND INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS IN A PARTICULAR DOMAIN AND THE CHALLENGES THIS DOMAIN POSES (SUCH AS THE NETFLIX WORKSHOP FOR RECOMMENDATION SYSTEMS)

Workshops that include a challenge problem, such as the one on time series classification that took place in 2007, are encouraged. A session with papers that address a challenge complements the more diverse sessions with regular papers and improves the potential for discussion. Because such challenges require extra time to plan, we may be willing to provide early notice of acceptance.

The organizers of approved workshops are required to announce the workshop and call for papers, gather submissions, conduct the reviewing process and decide upon the final workshop program. They must also prepare an informal set of workshop proceedings to be distributed with the registration materials at the conference. They may choose to form organizing or program committees for assistance in these tasks. The logistics of the workshops will be done with the help from the ACM KDD-2010 organizers.

If you choose the automated method, please send the .csv file to Adrienne Griscti griscti@hq.acm.org.

        ACM has an automated copyright form collection system for ACM published proceedings. Accepted authors are sent the ACM form and complete instructions. A weekly reminder is sent to authors with outstanding forms. Reminders are sent every week until four weeks before the conference/workshop.

        You will be provided acces to the submission site and will be able to view the status of the forms. All of the copyright forms must be submitted/approved four weeks prior to your conference/workshop, and viable paper/front matter files submitted to ensure DL inclusion of the proceedings on the first day of the conference/workshop.

        The publication should not be distributed in any format until the copyright forms have been approved.

        To initiate the automated copyright form system, ACM will need the following information in a .csv file:

        “Paper Type”, “Title”, “Lead Author;Author2;Author3;etc.”, “Lead Author e-mail”,”paper number”

        Please note that papers of 5 pages in length or longer are considered Full Papers.

        Sample record:

        “Full Paper”, “This is a Sample Title”, “Adrienne Griscti;Donna Cappo;John Smith”, “griscti@hq.acm.org”,”123”

        “Paper Type” : Please include one of the following paper types (only) for each of the submissions:

        Abstract Course Notes Demo Doctorial Consortium Extended Abstract Full paper Invited Talk Panel Poster Short Paper (4-5 pages) Tutorial

        “Title”: Please include the paper title as it will appear in the proceedings.

        “Author”: Please list the lead author first, and include all contributing authors, separated by commas

        “Lead Author email”: Please provide the e-mail address for the lead author. The lead author will be sent the copyright form and be asked to endorse the form on behalf of all contributing authors.
