SDM DF 2014 : Doctoral Forum and Student Travel Scholarship


When Apr 22, 2014 - Apr 26, 2014
Where Philadelphia, PA
Submission Deadline Jan 29, 2014

Call For Papers

The SIAM Conference on Data Mining (SDM 2014) that is taking place in Philadelphia, PA, April 24–26, 2014 is inviting Ph.D. students to apply to present their work at the SDM 2014
Doctoral Student Forum. We are also pleased to announce the availability of a limited number of student travel scholarships to cover the registration and travel expenses for students
participating in SDM 2014 either as authors of papers that have been accepted for presentation at SDM 2014 or as presenters in the SDM Doctoral Forum.

This year’s Doctoral Forum will build on the success of the previous Forums. It will provide an opportunity for Ph.D. students working on topics related to data mining and knowledge
discovery to discuss and receive feedback on their research from peers and senior practitioners in the field. The Doctoral Forum will be an integral part of the SDM program, and will
provide a constructive atmosphere for these students. The Doctoral Forum will be a special poster session collocated with the SDM conference oral presentation and poster sessions.
Students who have a paper (either a talk or a poster) in the main conference and wish to have a poster at the Doctoral Forum should present work that is distinct from the work included
in the Proceedings of the SDM conference. In selection of the Doctoral Forum participants, preference will be given to students who did significant work towards their thesis.

Completed applications for both Doctoral Forum and Travel Scholarships must be received by January 29, 2014 to ensure full consideration. Application documents should be sent by email
to Selected applicants will be notified by February 28, 2014. For the travel scholarships, local students who live within 30 miles of the conference venue can
receive only registration expenses.

The call to Doctoral Forum Participation can be found at

Information about the Student Travel Scholarships and the application form can be found at

Students who seek travel funds to present their work in the Doctoral Forum must send this application. Students (preferably the authors of an accepted paper in SDM 2014) who want
travel funds, but do not plan to present in the doctoral forum, can apply either to the SIAM call or the Doctoral Forum and Travel Scholarship call above. All requests for travel funds
to either call will be considered and awards made based on the funding available.
