Call For Papers

Call for PhD Forum
Due by August 1, 2014

The 14th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (IEEE ICDM 2014) provides a PhD forum to be held for the fourth time in conjunction with the international conference on data mining. The objectives of the forum are to offer an environment for students to exchange their ideas and experiences with peers and to get constructive feedback from senior researchers in data mining and related areas. The forum is particularly aimed at PhD students in the early stages of their career and Master students planning to pursue their research in a PhD program. The target audience for the forum is mainly PhD students, their advisors, related researchers and also the attendees of ICDM in general.

The topics of the discussion at the forum would be the dissertation proposals of the PhD students and their work in progress towards their dissertation. The PhD Forum spans various topics of data mining and work in related fields such as databases, artificial intelligence, statistics, information retrieval, multimedia and the web. Data mining in specific domains such as bioinformatics and the more general science informatics is also encouraged. Participants with interdisciplinary work across the areas are particularly welcome. The PhD forum will include proceedings consisting of papers describing the work of the doctoral students. Please see the deadlines for draft paper submission and camera ready papers. During the workshop, researchers with experience in supervising and examining PhD students will be able to participate and provide feedback and advice to the participants.

Submission Requirements:
The submissions should propose research ideas that are mature enough to be presented into a paper and whose content can evolve to become the substantial part of a PhD dissertation. The authors should be PhD students or Masters students aspiring to get a PhD and having in mind a clear idea of a proposal. Students could also submit work on one or more sub-problems of their dissertation. Papers should address research issues in their PhD proposal by focusing on challenges deriving from them and on their originality. They could also include proposed techniques meant to solve the given problems. Preliminary experimental evaluation should be included. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to participate in person to the Forum, together with their advisor.

The PhD forum is open for two types of submissions:
Regular papers should present established research with enough scientific contribution to the field. They must be at most 8 pages in length.
Extended abstract are meant for ongoing research that is expected to provide further advances in the future. They must be 2 pages in length.

How to Submit:
All submissions must follow the IEEE Computing Society format used for ICDM, and be submitted to the CyberChair Conference Management System.

Best Paper Awards and Travel Grants:
The PhD Forum will include a Best Paper Award, and will make available some travel grants. Students willing to benefit from a travel grant should contact the co-chairs of the forum, and explain the reasons why they need support for traveling.

Important Dates:
All deadlines are at 11:59PM Pacific Daylight Time.

Paper submission deadline: August 1, 2014
Notification: September 24, 2014
Camera-ready submission deadline: October 15, 2014
PhD Forum dates: December 14, 2014
