The IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM) has established itself as the world's premier research conference in data mining. The 11th edition of ICDM (ICDM '11) provides a leading forum for presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative, practical development experiences. The conference covers all aspects of data mining, including algorithms, software and systems, and applications. In addition, ICDM draws researchers and application developers from a wide range of data mining related areas such as statistics, machine learning, pattern recognition, databases and data warehousing, data visualization, knowledge-based systems, and high performance computing. By promoting novel, high quality research findings, and innovative solutions to challenging data mining problems, the conference seeks to continuously advance the state-of-the-art in data mining. Besides the technical program, the conference will feature invited talks from research and industry leaders, workshops, tutorials, panels, and the ICDM data mining contest.

Paper Submissions

High quality papers in all data mining areas are solicited. Original papers exploring new directions will receive especially careful consideration. Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for ICDM '11.

All paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 10 pages in the IEEE 2-column format . All papers will be triple-blind reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance to data mining, originality, significance, and clarity. Papers that do not comply with the Submission Guidelines will be rejected without review.

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press and accorded oral presentation times in the main conference. Submissions accepted as regular papers will be allocated 10 pages in the proceedings. Submissions accepted as short papers will need to be reduced to 6 pages for the proceedings and will have a shorter presentation time at the conference than regular papers.

A selected number of IEEE ICDM '11 accepted papers will be invited for possible inclusion, in expanded and revised form, in the Knowledge and Information Systems journal published by Springer-Verlag.

ICDM Best Paper Awards

IEEE ICDM Best Paper Awards will be conferred at the conference on the authors of (1) the best research paper, (2) the best application paper, and (3) the best student paper. Strong, foundational results will be considered for the best research paper award and application -oriented submissions will be considered for the best application paper award. The best student paper award will be given to the authors of the best paper written solely by one or more students.


ICDM '11 will host short and long tutorials that focus on new research directions and initiatives. The deadline for submission of tutorial proposals is June 24,2011.

ICDM Data Mining Contest

ICDM '11 will host a data mining contest to challenge researchers and practitioners with a real practical data mining problem.

For further details on the contest, please click here.

ICDM Data Mining Demos and Exhibits

ICDM '11 will host demos and exhibits. The exhibitors will be given the opportunity to distribute product, service, and company literature, give demonstrations and carry out recruitment activities. Demos are solicited for demonstrating data mining software systems and libraries closely related to the area of data mining and knowledge discovery, or showing new technological advances in applying data mining techniques.

Topics of Interest

Topics related to the design, analysis and implementation of data mining theory, systems and applications are of interest. These include, but are not limited to the following areas: data mining foundations, mining in emerging domains, methodological aspects and the KDD process, and integrated KDD applications, systems, and experiences. A detailed listing of specific topics can be found at the conference website.

Student Travel Scholarships

A limited number of student travel scholarships will be available to support student authors to attend ICDM 2011 to present their papers. The student travel scholarship committee will make the final decision for the final awarded students.

In general, US$500 to US$1000 will be awarded to each successful applicant.
