Call for Papers

EGC-M 2012: The 3rd International Conference on the Extraction and Management of Knowledge - Maghreb

EGC-M 2012
November 12, 2012 – November 15, 2012
Hammamet, Tunisia


EGC-M is an annual leading International Conference on Extraction and Management of Knowledge. The purpose of the conference is to bring together researchers and actors from academia, industry, and government to advance the science, engineering, and technology in Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD). EGC-M was started in 2010. The previous conferences will held in Alger, Algeria (2010) and Tangier, Morocco (2011).
The 3rd EGC-M Conference on the Extraction and Management of Knowledge Discovery (EGC-M 2012) will be held in Tunis, Tunisia. This conference will be organized by the High Institute of Computer Science of Tunis ( The conference will include two workshops, four invited talks, regular papers and PhD sessions.
Paper submission details:
We invite submission of high-quality papers reporting original research on all aspects of knowledge discovery and data mining. We especially encourage submissions that promote the advancement of KDD as a scientific and engineering discipline and submissions that bridge between different disciplines. All submitted papers will be judged based on their technical soundness, potential impact, rigor, significance, originality, repeatability, relevance, and clarity. Papers submitted to EGC-M 2012 should be original work, not previously published in a peer-reviewed conference or journal. Substantially similar versions of the paper submitted to EGC-M 2012 should not be under review in another peer-reviewed conference or journal during the EGC-M 2012 reviewing period.
Duplicate submissions are not allowed. Authors are expected to agree to the following terms: "I understand that the paper being submitted must not overlap substantially with any other paper that I am a co-author of and that is currently submitted elsewhere. Furthermore, previously published papers with any overlap are cited prominently in this submission." Duplicate submissions will be rejected immediately without review.
Author information’s:
Authors are welcome to submit original contributions on the topics of the conference. As a rule, all the contributions will be peer-reviewed by three members of the Program Committee and thereafter by the members of the Steering Committee, who will finally decide on acceptance of the papers. All the accepted contributions will be published in the proceedings book of the conference.
Authors are invited to electronically submit original research contributions or experience reports in English or French. The submitted manuscript should closely reflect the final paper as it will appear in the proceedings.
EGC-M Award:
The EGC-M Prize is awarded each year to recognize high-quality papers that are presented at the EGC-M annual conference. The Best Paper Award is given for the paper judged to make the most significant contribution to the conference. The judges may make their assessment based on the papers contained in the proceedings, and on their oral presentations. However, for a paper to gain this award one of the authors must have attended the conference and presented the paper. In making their decision the judges will take the following criteria into account:
- Originality of the work.
- Quality of the research and results presented.
- Relevance of the work.
- Quality of the oral presentation.
Authors are encouraged to communicate with the conference chairs about any aspect of this call for papers.
Formatting instructions:
Contributions, written in English or French, must be formatted according to the guidelines of the ACM style ( The length of the contribution must be no more than 6 pages double column in the ACM format, including figures, title pages, references and appendices. Any submission that exceeds length limits or deviates from formatting requirements may be rejected without review. Only papers using the LaTeX typesetting system will be accepted.
All submitted papers will be judged through triple-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. As an author, you are required to make a good-faith effort to preserve the anonymity of your submission, while at the same time allowing the reader to fully grasp the context of related past work, including your own. Common sense and careful writing will go a long way towards preserving anonymity. Please take the following steps when preparing your submission:
- Remove the names and affiliations of authors from the title page.
- Remove acknowledgment of identifying names and funding sources.
- Use care in naming your files. Source file names (e.g., "Alice-n-Bob.dvi") are often embedded in the final output as readily accessible comments.
- Use care in referring to related work, particularly your own. Do not omit references to provide anonymity, as this leaves the reviewer unable to grasp the context. Instead, reference your past work in the third person, just as you would any other piece of related work by another author.
Electronic submission:
The papers, in PDF format, must be submitted only electronically before the submission deadline (See Important dates). The submission site will be open from June 2012. All abstracts, submissions and reviews are handled by the EasyChair conference system (
