Workshop Website

The Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
(PAKDD) is the leading data mining conference of the Pacific-Asia
region. The world\'s best known researchers in data mining and related
areas actively participate and attend the annual PAKDD event.

PAKDD 2009 seeks proposals for workshops on foundational and emerging
topics in areas relevant to data mining. The PAKDD workshops provide an
informal and vibrant opportunity for researchers and industry
practitioners to share their research positions, original research
results and practical development experiences on specific new challenges
and emerging issues. The workshop topic should be focused so that the
Participants can benefit from interaction with each other and the
cohesiveness of the topic.

A possible (non-exhaustive) list of topics include:
Foundational Topics in Data Mining
Data Mining and Systems Biology (a systems view of genomics and proteomics)
Data Mining and Climate Change
Data Mining and Financial Time-Series
Data Mining for Social Networks Analysis (Relational Mining)
Data Mining on specialized data types: structured, unstructured,
semi-structured, streaming, spatio-temporal, text, multimedia, etc.
Real life applications and success stories
The organizers and chairs of the workshop shall have full control on the
call for papers, forming of program committees, review and selection of
papers as well as planning the workshop program. HOWEVER, the program
committee chairs are not allowed to submit papers to the workshops for a
fair review process. IN ADDITION, the chairs must state in the workshop
CFP as "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 registration fees for workshops will be determined by
the conference (not the workshop itself). The fees will be paid to the
conference, and the conference will provide workshop facilities
including the working notes printing, the meeting room, coffee break,
lunch, proceedings and etc. Any further expense of the workshop such as
financial aid for invited speakers MUST be provided by the workshop
itself upon getting some sponsors for their own workshops. The money
from workshop sponsors will be received by the workshop itself.

After the workshops, each workshop has a right to include its
outstanding papers in a LNCS/LNAI Post Proceedings of PAKDD Workshops
published by Springer. Under the program, the workshop chair must
organize a review committee to select the outstanding papers from the
papers presented in the workshop. Based on the reviews, each selected
paper should be further improved for the camera ready version. The
average acceptance rate of this selection process should be no higher
than 50%. A detailed schedule of due dates for the paper selection and
the collection of the Camera Ready versions will be announced
immediately after the workshop. We plan to publish the LNAI Post
Proceedings by the end of November, 2009. Organizers for workshops not
entering into this LNCS/LNAI Post Proceedings program are encouraged to
arrange their own post-workshop journal special issues to publish
selected papers.

Prospective workshop organizers should send a proposal (maximum three pages)
with the following sections to PAKDD 2009 Workshop Co-Chairs.
Title of the workshop
Objectives, scope, and contribution to the main conference
Names and contacts of key organizers and a tentative list of members of
