PAKDD 2009
The 13th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
April 27-30, 2009, Bangkok, Thailand

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 the program committee along with links to their webpages.
