Call for Workshops

[General Information]

The ADMA-2012 organizing committee solicits proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. Each workshop will take place on December 15, 2012 (tentatively) and can be a half-day or one-day workshop (depending on the number of accepted papers). The purpose of a workshop is to provide an excellent opportunity for participants from academia, industry, government and other related parties to present and discuss novel ideas on current and emerging topics relevant to data mining and its applications.

Each workshop should be organized under a well-defined basis focusing on emerging research areas, challenging problems and industrial/governmental applications. Organizers have free controls on the format, style as well as building blocks of the workshop.  Possible contents of a workshop include but are not limited to invited talks, regular papers/posters, panels, and other pragmatic alternatives. In case workshop proposers need extra time to prepare their workshop, early decisions may be considered if justified.

Organizers of accepted workshops are expected to announce the workshop and disseminate call for papers, maintain the workshop website, gather submissions, conduct the reviewing process and decide upon the final workshop program. The workshop proceedings is planned to be published as a volume of the renowned Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series, which will be indexed by ISI Proceedings. The workshop organizers will be included as the workshop proceedings’ editors. Workshop organizers may choose to form organizing or program committees aiming to accomplish these tasks successfully.

[Proposal Details]
Workshop proposals should be no more than 8 pages and must include the following parts:

Proposers are encouraged to have their drafts reviewed by potential workshop participants before submission.
Workshop proposals should be submitted by emails to workshop co-chairs by May 10, 2012.

The ADMA-2012 organizing committee grants each accepted workshop with one FREE conference registration, which can be offered to one of the workshop organizers themselves or one of the workshop invited speakers (if any).
