6th Pacific Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery & Data Mining
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. 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
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

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
novel application domains. Submissions that link KDD technology to
specific problems in the Pacific Rim are particularly encouraged.
Workshop proposals should be submitted as soon as possible but no later
than Nov. 5, 2001. Organizers will be notified of the committee's
