Call For Papers

(Apologies for cross-posting)
SDM2014: The 14TH SIAM International Conference on Data Mining
Call for Workshops
The SDM14 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The purpose of a workshop is to provide
participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas on active and emerging topics of knowledge discovery and data mining. Ideally a
workshop should foster interactions between different communities within the scope of SDM (e.g. statisticians, computer scientists, data scientists, etc. from
industry, academia, etc.). A workshop should not be a mini-conference, but rather it should encourage the presentation of novel ideas, even if they are in an
early stage of development, contact between different points of view, and active exchanges between participants. Therefore publishing notes is optional for the
SDM workshops.

The responsibilities of the workshop organizers include

- preparing the call for papers and publicizing it,

- maintaining the workshop web site,

- deciding the workshop program content; this may optionally include inviting speakers, inviting reviewers, selecting the papers through a peer review process
delivering the notes to the press in time (if the workshop organizers decide to publish notes), and

- delivering the final workshop program to the workshop chair in time.

Workshop proposals should be prepared as a Web page and its URL sent via e-mail to the SDM14 Workshop co-chairs: Tina Eliassi-Rad ( and Amol
Ghoting ( by September 27, 2013 11:59 PM PST. You will receive an acknowledgment of receipt within 24 hours. Please ping us if you do not
receive a receipt within 24 hours.

A workshop proposal should include the following information:

- Workshop title

- Full contact information of the organizers

- Description of the workshop including objectives

- Content, topics of interest. For workshops, a description of the format (e.g., invited talks, round table, accepted presentations, etc.) should be included.

- Please indicate your preference regarding the length of the workshop: Half-day or full-day.

- A short description of the target audience.

- List of potential participants: For workshops this could include potential program committee members, potential authors and invited speakers.

- A summary of previous editions of the workshop (if it was run before), with an emphasis on number of attendees and paper submissions.

- A short biography of each organizer.

Proposals will be judged based on the above information.

Particular preference will be given to proposals that demonstrate the ability to foster interactions among multiple communities, as noted above. We prefer
workshops in which there is participation of diverse people who may not have worked with one another in the past, or which bridge between traditional SDM topics
and communities and other fields. External sources of funding or sponsorship for special events held along with the workshop (e.g. invited talks, poster session)
can be optionally included in the proposal submission.

For any question regarding SDM14 Workshops, please contact the workshop co-chairs: Tina Eliassi-Rad ( and Amol Ghoting (
with subject line: SIAM SDM14.
