    6th Pacific Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery & Data Mining (PAKDD-2002)

    Taipei, Taiwan, May 6 - 8, 2002

    PAKDD-2002 Conference Committee invites proposals for the Workshop
    Program of the Sixth Pacific Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery &
    Data Mining (PAKDD-2002). Workshops will be held at the beginning of
    the conference, on May 6, 2002. Workshop participants will have the
    opportunity to meet and discuss issues with a selected focus with
    an informal setting for active exchange among researchers, developers
    and users on topics of interest. Submissions are welcome in all areas
    of Knowledge Discovery & Data Mining, both theoretical and applied,
    for PAKDD-2002</a>. Suggested topics for workshops include, but are
    not limited to, the following:

            o Scientific Discovery
            o Data & Knowledge Representation
            o Multi-criteria; Evaluation & Data Mining Metrics
            o Data Mining in E-Business
            o Text Mining
            o Web Mining
            o Metadata, Semantic Web
            o XML for Data Mining
            o Bioinformatics; Data Mining
            o Data & Dimensionality Reduction
            o Preprocessing & Postprocessing Techniques
            o Management & Refinement for the Discovered Knowledge
            o Performance Evaluation of Data Mining Algorithms
            o Security and Privacy Issues in Data Mining

    To encourage interaction and exchange of ideas, the workshops will be kept
    small, with 20-35 participants. Attendance is limited to active participants
    only. The format of the workshop presentations will be determined by the
    organizers. Organizers are encouraged to leave ample time for general
    discussion. Workshops will typically be one full day in length, although
    half day proposals will be considered.

    Proposal Content

    Proposals for workshops should be about 2 pages in length, and should
    contain:

    i. A description of the workshop. Identify the specific issues
         on which the workshop will focus.
    ii. A brief discussion of why the workshop is of particular interest
         at this time.
    iii. The names and addresses of the organizing committee; 3 to 4 people
         knowledgeable in the field. Strong proposals include organizers
         who bring differing perspectives to the workshop topic.
    iv. An indication as to whether the workshop should be considered for
         a half day or one day meeting.

    We welcome proposals that explore the frontiers of KDD research as well as
    novel application domains. Submissions that link KDD technology to specific
    problems in the Pacific Rim are particularly encouraged.

    Submissions

    Workshop proposals should be submitted as soon as possible but no later
    than Nov. 5, 2001. Organizers will be notified of the committee's decision
    by Nov. 17, 2001. Workshop organizers will be responsible for:

     o Producing and distributing a call for papers/participation.
     o Selecting participants. Workshop attendance is by invitation of
       the organizers.&nbsp; Selection of attendees will be made by the
       organizers on the basis of submissions.
     o Workshop organizers will need to provide PAKDD with a list of
       the participants by April 15, 2002.
     o Coordinating the production and distribution of the workshop notes.

    Scheduling the Workshop Activities

    PAKDD will provide logistic support, and schedule the meeting dates, times,
    and places for the workshops. Workshop organizers will be advised of the
    registration fees, which should be included in their call for participation.
    PAKDD reserves the right to drop any workshop if there is&nbsp; insufficient
    interest. Workshops are not to be used as a vehicle for marketing products.
