    Scope of the Workshop:

    Knowledge discovery and data mining (KDD) deal with the problem of
    extracting interesting associations, classifiers, clusters, and other
    patterns from data. KDD is playing an increasingly important role
    business, scientific, and engineering applications because of the growing
    availability of data in electronic format. The advent of laptops,
    palmtops, cell phones, and wearable computers is also making ubiquitous
    access to large quantity of data possible. Advanced analysis of data for
    extracting useful knowledge is the next natural step in the world of
    ubiquitous computing.

    This workshop will focus on the state-of-the-art technology for
    ubiquitous data mining (UDM) in mobile and distributed environments.
    Accessing and analyzing data from a ubiquitous computing device offer many
    challenges. For example, the benefits of ubiquitous presence usually do
    not come for free. UDM introduces additional cost due to communication,
    computation, security, and other factors. So one of the objectives of UDM
    is to mine data while minimizing the cost of ubiquitous presence.
    Human-computer interaction is another challenging aspect of UDM.
    Visualizing patterns like, classifiers, clusters, associations and others,
    in portable devices are usually difficult. The small display areas offer
    serious challenges to interactive data mining environments. Data
    management in a mobile environment is also a challenging issue. Moreover,
    the sociological and psychological aspects of the integration between data
    mining technology and our lifestyle are yet to be explored.

    We need to develop the technology to offer the benefits of KDD in a
    ubiquitous fashion in such a way that the cost of ubiquitous presence is
    minimized. This workshop will focus on this emerging technology.

    The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    1. Theoretical foundation of UDM.
    2. Methods and algorithms: Advanced algorithms for mobile and distributed
        KDD applications.
    3. Data management issues, mark-up languages, and other data
        representation techniques; integration with database applications for
        mobile environments.
    4. Architectural issues: Architecture, control, security, and
        communication issues.
    5. Specialized mobile devices for UDM.
    6. Experimental systems: Development of experimental systems, performance
        design issues.
    7. Software agents and UDM: Agent based approaches in UDM, Agent
        interaction---cooperation, collaboration, negotiation, organizational
    8. Applications of UDM: Application in business, science, engineering,
        medicine, and other disciplines.
    9. Human-computer interaction: Human-computer interaction in UDM,
        multi-user interaction in UDM.
    10. Location management issues in UDM.
    11. Technology for web-based applications of UDM.
