[KDD 2017] Networking with Experts Forum – Call for Participation

Dear KDD-2017 Participants,

Thank you to all who have submitted their proposals to us already. For those that have not, this is a friendly reminder that the deadline is extended to Monday, July 31, 2017. Be sure to follow the instructions on how to prepare the one-page proposal.

At KDD 2017 this year, we are excited to bring a new program called the Networking with Experts Forum, which consists of hourly round-table sessions with experts during the main conference days from August 14 - 16. This will be an invaluable opportunity for graduate students and early-career researchers to discuss their research progress as well as career development plan with each other and with leading researchers in Data Mining that would normally not be easily accessible to them. KDD and the experts consider this as an act of giving back to the research community to prepare the next generation of researchers for success. The forum is organized as round-table sessions including short presentations on individual research, and mentoring discussions based on interests. The participants will have an opportunity to intensively discuss with leading experts in corresponding areas.

The round-table sessions are informal discussions of work-in-progress, theoretical problems, practical issues, future directions, or career suggestions among participants and leading experts. Every expert will sit in a table and lead the discussion. Each participant will present their work, receive feedback from the experts, following by a Q&A session. Chairs reserve the right to limit the number of attendees per table.

We welcome proposal submissions from graduate students and early-career researchers at any stage.

How to Prepare Your One-Page Proposal
