IEEE ICDM 2011 Call for Tutorials

ICDM 2011: The 11th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society
December 11-14, 2011, Vancouver, Canada

Important Dates

August 1, 2011: The deadline for submission of tutorial proposals
September 1, 2011: Selection results to be announced

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 workshops, tutorials, panels, and the ICDM data mining contest.

ICDM '11 will host short and long tutorials as well as workshops that focus on new research directions and initiatives. The tutorials will be part of the main conference technical program, and are free of charge to the attendees of the conference. Further, the conference provides the following support per tutorial: a honorarium of $500 and one complimentary registration for a tutorial presenter who is not also a presenting author.

We invite proposals for tutorials from active researchers and experienced tutors. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art research, development and applications in a specific data mining direction, and stimulate and facilitate future work. A tutorial should not mainly focus on only the presenter's previous work. Tutorials on interdisciplinary directions, novel and fast growing directions, and significant applications are highly encouraged. ICDM will provide an honorarium for each tutorial. It is possible, depending on actual conference attendance, that the conference can (partly) support travel and subsistence expenses for tutorial speakers. Please provide an estimate for these expenses in your proposal if you are expecting the conference to cover these expenses for you. We will assume that the tutorial speakers will be able to cover these expenses from their own sources if no estimate is included in their proposals. A tutorial proposal should be formatted in the following sections.

Please kindly send your proposals to: and
