Call For Papers
Next Generation Data Mining (NGDM-11) Summit:
Ubiquitous Knowledge Discovery for Energy Management in Smart Grids and
Intelligent Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Telematics
4th September, 2011, Athens, Greece
Joint Research-Industry Symposium collocated with ECML/PKDD 2011 in Athens, Greece
This event is jointly supported by International KD2U Society (www.kd2u.org) and MODAP (http://www.modap.org)
Venue: Athens Royal Olympic Hotel (http://www.royalolympic.com/)
The NGDM 2011 will be held in the most famous place in the middle of Athens City. The 5 star hotel Athens Royal Olympic
lays just in front of the famous Temple of Zeus and the National Gardens. It is underneath the Acropolis.

Call for Papers
The Next Generation of Data Mining (NGDM) Event Series explores emerging issues in the field of data mining by bringing researchers and practitioners
from different fields. The 2011 Next Generation of Data Mining (NGDM?11) Summit will continue this tradition by bringing some of the best minds
from several fields in order to explore the role of data mining in two areas:
(1) Energy management in Smart Grids and
(2) Telematics in the machine to machine world.
Smart Grids typically deal with energy production, distribution, and several other related energy management issues.
The ?Smart? in the Smart Grids really depends on how we create the ?intelligence? by often analyzing the observed behavior of
different energy management sub-systems. The distributed nature of the Smart Grid and privacy sensitive nature of some of the data
make data analysis in a Smart Grid a challenging issue. Sustainable energy management technology in this new generation of emission conscious
environment is also of interest. NGDM?11 will explore all such issues relevant to data mining over Smart Grids and sustainable energy management.
Telematics in the machine to machine (M2M) world often implies remote control and interaction among machines and embedded devices.
Telematics is playing an increasingly important role in many domains in order to make machines adaptive and ?intelligent?.
For example, vehicle telematics is changing the way the tracking, car insurance, and repair services industry work. Telematics is also playing an
important role in data management in Smart Grids.
Format of the Symposium:
1. Invited Presentations
2. Regular Presentations
3. Panel and Open Discussions
4. Poster and demo sessions
The summit will generate a report based on the presentations and discussions of the participants. We would like to invite paper (extended abstract)
submissions from data mining researchers and practitioners. The papers should be relevant to the focus areas of NGDM'11. The papers must present
innovative research directions that may be suitable for the agenda of the summit. Submitted papers should not exceed 5 pages.
The summit will accept only electronic submission of papers in PDF or Postscript format to info at kd2u dot org with "NGDM11 Submission" in the subject line.
The papers will be included in the NGDM?11 proceedings. The summit will also produce an edited book. Extended versions of the selected papers
will be included in the book.
Latex and Word style files for the summit proceedings should be used for preparing the final camera-ready version. Both the full and poster presentations
can have abstracts with at most 5 pages. The size of the poster board will be 4 feet x 4 feet. Each Poster presenter will also give a short presentation (2 slides).
Note that the summit is about the next generation of challenges. So we are looking for big exciting ideas, challenges that need to be solved, and possible
methodologies on both algorithmic and applications-grounds even if they are not completely matured.
Call for Demos
Please send demo proposals by e-mail to info at kd2u dot org with "NGDM11 Demo Proposal" in the subject before July 15, 2011.
We encourage presentations, demos, and case-studies from the European Union or other government funded projects and companies
relevant to the topics of NGDM 2011 Summit.
Paper/Poster/Demo-proposal Submission deadline: July 15, 2011
Notification: August 1, 2011
Camera-ready due: August 15, 2011
Pre-Registration Deadline: August 15, 2011
