                             (PAKDD 2008)
                            Osaka, Japan

The PAKDD conference series has established itself as a prestigious forum for 
the exchange of the latest research results in data mining. Held annually at 
attractive Australasian cities, the conference provides unique opportunities 
for data mining researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore 
new ideas, techniques, and tools, and to exchange experiences. The previous 
events were held in Singapore, Melbourne, Beijing, Kyoto, Hong Kong, Taipei, 
Seoul, Sydney, Hanoi, Singapore and Nanjing.

PAKDD 2008 will be held in Osaka, Japan. Attendees are expected from all over 
the world, as is the tradition for PAKDD. It is also expected that there will 
be strong local interest, and in particular, strong interest from many local 
attendees in learning about all aspects of data mining. 

An integral part of PAKDD 2008 will be the tutorial program. We invite 
proposals for tutorials in all areas of data mining, including introductory 
and overview tutorials as well as state-of-the-art tutorials and data mining 
in-practice tutorials. Tutorials will run for 3 hrs in total. 

A tutorial proposal should include the following information: 
  A brief summary of the topic 
  Outline including a short summary of each section 
  Specific goals and objectives 
  Expected background of the audience 
  A biographical sketch of the presenter(s) 
  Audio Visual equipment needed for the presentation 

Possible tutorial topics include 
  Introduction to Data Mining Algorithms 
  Text Mining
  Machine Learning
  Statistical Methods
  KDD Process and Human Interaction
  Data and Knowledge Visualization
  Ubiquitous Data Mining
  Data Mining in Industry 
  Tools for Data Mining 
  Mining Structured/semi-structured/unstructured Data 
  Stream Data Mining 
  Mining Biomedical Data 
  Mining Multimedia Data 
  Mining Temporal Data 
  Mining of Web, Community and Social Network Data
  Privacy Preserving Data Mining
  KDD Process and Human Interaction
and many more - the list is meant to be suggestive rather than limiting. The 
topics relevant to the conference can be seen in the CfP of the main conference

Proposals should be no more than 5 pages in length, including the presenter's 
name, affiliation, address, email, phone, and fax. Electronic submissions must 
be received by 27 November 2007. Please submit your proposals via email to both

 Tutorial Chairs: 
  Achim Hoffmann (Email: achim (at) cse.unsw.edu.au) 
  Akihiro Yamamoto (Email: yamamoto (at) i.kyoto-u.ac.jp)

Proposals will be evaluated based on relevance and content. Presenters of 
selected tutorials will receive an honorarium, which may be split between 
multiple presenters for a single tutorial. Comprehensive tutorial notes should 
be provided (printable slides) by 20 April 2008, for production of copies for 
distribution at the conference. They will also be published on the PAKDD web 
site and available to attendees. 

Important Dates: 
  Tutorial Proposal Due: 27 November 2007 
  Acceptance Notification: 10 December 2007 
  Tutorial Presentation: 20-23 May 2008 (tentative 
                                   exact date of tutorials to be determined) 

This is an exciting time for Data Mining in Japan and the region, and an excellent 
opportunity to build connections with regional researchers and industry practitioners.
