Call For Papers


[General Information]
The ACM KDD-2012 organizing committee solicits proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. Each workshop will take place on August 12, 2012 (tentatively) and will either be a full-day or a half-day workshop. The purpose of a workshop is to provide an excellent opportunity for participants from academia, industry, government and other related parties to present and discuss novel ideas on current and emerging topics relevant to knowledge discovery and data mining.

Each workshop should be organized under a well-defined basis focusing on emerging research areas, challenging problems and industrial/governmental applications. Organizers have free controls on the format, style as well as building blocks of the workshop. Possible contents of a workshop include but are not limited to invited talks, regular papers/posters, panels, and other pragmatic alternatives. In case workshop proposers need extra time to prepare their workshop, early decisions may be considered if justified.

Organizers of accepted workshops are expected to announce the workshop and disseminate call for papers, maintain the workshop website, gather submissions, conduct the reviewing process and decide upon the final workshop program. They are also required to prepare an informal set of workshop proceedings to be distributed with the registration materials at the main conference, with a proceedings format template provided by KDD 2012. Workshop organizers may choose to form organizing or program committees aiming to accomplish these tasks successfully.

• Workshop proposals due: January 15, 2012
• Notification of decision: March 5, 2012
• Suggested Workshop Paper Submission deadline: May 8, 2012
• Suggested Workshop Final Paper Due: June 18, 2012

• Outline: abstract, topic(s), objectives, relevance, and expected outcomes
• Motivation: why is SIGKDD workshop on this topic relevant at this particular time
• Description of the target group(s) of attendees and anticipated number of participants
• Potential list of invited speakers (if any)
• Preliminary list of core program committee members
• Duration of the workshop (full-day or half-day)

• For new workshops, a list of possible attendees/submissions and/or a justification of the expected attendees/submissions
• Short bio as well as contact information (address, email, and phone) for each organizer

The ACM KDD-2012 organizing committee grants each accepted workshop with one FREE conference registration, which can be offered to one of the workshop organizers themselves or the workshop invited speakers. The workshops are also encouraged to seek their own sponsors. Workshop organizers are not allowed to publish more than two papers in their own workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the workshop and present their work.
