*** Paper Submission

The submitted paper should adhere to the double-blind review policy.
All papers will be double-blind reviewed by the Program Committee on
the basis of technical quality, relevance to data mining, originality,
significance, and clarity. All paper submissions will be handled

Each submitted paper should include an abstract up to 200 words and
be not longer than 12 single-spaced pages with 10pt font size.
Authors are strongly encouraged to use Springer LNCS/LNAI manuscript
submission guidelines (available at for their initial
submissions. All papers must be submitted electronically through
the paper submission system in PDF format only.

The submitted papers must not be previously published anywhere,
and must not be under consideration by any other conferences or
journal during the review process. 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. For
no-show authors, their affiliations will receive a notification.
The workshop program committee chairs are not allowed to submit
papers to the conference for a fair review process. By submitting
a paper, the author(s) agree to abide by the decision of the
workshop program committee chairs.

All accepted papers will be included in workshop proceedings
published by the ACM Press or in an LNCS book published by Springer
(tentatively). Outstanding papers will be published by Springer in
a LNCS/LNAI post Proceedings of PAKDD Workshops. Moreover, the
best-quality accepted papers after the presentation on the workshop
day will be recommended for possible publication in the international
