**** Call for Papers ****

Today is an exciting time to be a data mining researcher. There is
a huge quantity of available data, and a high demand for knowledge
extraction from this data that only data mining can provide.
Moreover, with the democratization of parallel computing solutions,
be it multicore processors, GPUs, clusters or grids, there has never
been more raw computing power available.

There is a catch however: parallel computing power does not come for
free. Designing efficient parallel algorithms requires new skills,
many of which are yet to discover. Most current programming
language does not make parallel programming easy, leading to new
research on different ways of programming. Then performance
analysis, which is a crucial point for data mining algorithms, get
much more complex, as the scaling with the number of computing
elements must also be studied. Bad performance can be caused by an
inefficient usage of the underlying parallel system architecture.
These problems quickly arise as data mining algorithms often need to
perform complex computations on huge volumes of data, with irregular
and unpredictable computing loads, and generating large quantities
of intermediate data and/or results. This pushes the parallel
architectures to their limits, forcing data mining researchers to
get a precise understanding of how these architectures work and to
rethink existing algorithms.

The PDM workshop provides a venue for all data mining researchers
working on parallel data mining, whatever the parallel support
used. Despite differences in support, the main problems of
parallelism remain the same, discussions between researchers working
on different parallel supports or different domains of data mining
will allow cross-fertilization and help everyone to progress.

Submissions of early research and innovative ideas are highly encouraged.

Researchers applying parallel data mining to real-world data and
applications are also most welcome.

**** Topics of Interest ****

Topics of interest of the workshop include, but are not limited to, the following:

- New parallel data mining algorithms, especially in pattern mining, classification, clustering
- Multicore CPU data mining
- GPU data mining
- Cluster-based or grid-based distributed data mining
- Cloud data mining
- Peer-to-peer data mining
- Performance analysis of parallel data mining algorithms
- Theoretical foundations of parallel data mining
- Cache-aware / Cache-oblivious data mining algorithms
- Parallel data-mining over streams
- Parallel implementations of data mining algorithms with programming languages well adapted to parallelism, for example functional languages
- Applications using parallel data mining in either an industrial or a scientific context

**** Submissions ****

We expect to receive submissions in the form of research papers.
The maximum number of pages is 10 pages in the SIAM DM format.
The submitted papers will be review by at least two referees on the basis
of relevance, significance, originality, technical quality and clarity.

Submissions about ongoing works, for example PhD students works, are encouraged.

Notifications: February 4, 2011
Camera ready: February 11, 2011
Workshop: April 30, 2011 (half-day)
