[Apologies if you receive this more than once] IEEE Data Mining 2001: Call for Participation ============================================= The 2001 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining Doubletree Hotel, San Jose, California, USA November 29 - December 2, 2001 * On-line registration (and other information) at http://www.cs.uvm.edu/~xwu/icdm-01.html (Register by November 6 to save $100!) * Be sure to book hotel rooms by November 7 for discounted rates! (http://www.cs.uvm.edu/~xwu/icdm/hotel-01.shtml) The 2001 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM '01) provides a forum for the sharing of original research results and practical development experiences among researchers and application developers from different data mining related areas such as machine learning, automated scientific discovery, statistics, pattern recognition, knowledge acquisition, soft computing, databases and data warehousing, data visualization, and knowledge-based systems. The conference seeks solutions to challenging problems facing the development of data mining systems, and shapes future directions of research by promoting high quality, novel and daring research findings. As an important part of the conference, the workshops program will focus on new research challenges and initiatives. With the support of both world-renowned experts and new researchers from the international data mining community, ICDM '01 has received an overwhelming response compared to any other data mining related conference this year: 365 paper submissions, 8 workshop proposals, and 29 tutorial proposals. * Invited Speakers: - Jerome H. Friedman, Stanford University, USA - Jim Gray, Microsoft Research, USA (The 1999 Turing Award Winner) - Pat Langley, Institute for the Study of Learning and Expertise, USA - Benjamin W. Wah, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, USA (President, IEEE Computer Society) * ICDM '01 Tutorials (November 29, 2001): - Text and Data Mining for Bioinformatics, by Hinrich Schuetze ([log in to unmask]) - Mining Time Series Data, by Eamonn Keogh ([log in to unmask]) * ICDM '01 Workshops (November 29, 2001): - Text Mining (TextDM '2001) (http://www-ai.ijs.si/DunjaMladenic/TextDM01/) - Integrating Data Mining and Knowledge Management (http://cui.unige.ch/~hilario/icdm-01/cfp.html) * Paper Presentations (November 30 - December 2, 2001): Out of 365 paper submissions, the IEEE ICDM '01 Program Committee accepted 72 papers for regular presentation, and an additional 37 papers for poster presentation.
