                       KDD-2002 Call for Papers

              The Eighth ACM SIGKDD International Conference
                 on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining

                  July 23-26, 2002, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada



    Submission Deadlines: Electronic Abstract Submission - Feb. 22, 2002
                          Electronic Paper Submission - Mar. 1, 2002
    Submission Format : Camera-Ready (no more than 10 pages)
                          Electronic Submission only

    In the past few years, the ACM SIGKDD conference has established itself
    as one of the premier conferences on knowledge discovery and data
    mining. To continue with this tradition, the eighth ACM SIGKDD
    conference will provide a forum for the academic researchers and
    industry practitioners to share their research and experience. The
    conference will be co-located with AAAI. It will feature keynote
    presentations, plenary paper presentations, poster presentations,
    tutorials, workshops, panels, as well as the KDD Cup competition.

    Papers on all aspects of knowledge discovery are solicited. Areas of
    interest include, but are not limited to:

    >.Data Mining Biomedical Domains | .Novel Data Mining algorithms
    >.Data Mining with Constraints | .Preproessing and Postprocessing
    >.Data Mining and Data Warehousing | for Data Mining
    >.Data Mining and the Internet | .Robust and Scalable Statistical
    >.Data and Result Visualization | Methods
    >.Foundations of Data Mining | .Security and Privacy Issues
    >.Mining High Dimensional Data | .Temporal Data Mining
    >.Interactive and Online Mining | .Text Data Mining
    >.KDD Framework and Process |

    Both research track and industry track papers are solicited. All papers
    will be judged based on their technical merits, relevance to KDD, and
    presentation clarity. Because the number of submissions is expected
    to be high, the conference will have two parallel tracks on research papers,
    thereby increasing the number of papers to be accepted and presented
    in the conference.

    Important Dates:
    Deadlines are for both Research and Industrial tracks

    Submission Guidelines:

    Abstracts must be submitted electronically at the paper submission
    web site on or before 6pm PST Feb. 22, 2002. An abstract must not
    contain more than 250 words. No paper will be considered without
    having the abstract submitted in time.

    Full papers must be submitted electronically at the paper submission
    web site on or before 6pm PST March 1, 2002. Authors are required to
    submit a version of their full papers in camera-ready format. As such,
    the formating instructions are identical to the SIGKDD conference paper
    instructions (http://www.acm.org/sigkdd/kdd2002/). Papers
    should be no more than 10 pages, single spaced, in no smaller than 10
    point font with 1 inch margins (left, right, top, bottom.) This page
    limit is inclusive of all references. Appendices can be attached and
    not counted towards the page limit. But appendices may not be read by
    the referees. The program committee will strictly enforce the page

    All papers must be submitted in either PDF, postscript or MS Word
    format. However, PDF is the preferred submission format.
    It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that the submitted
    papers print correctly on a variety of printers. If any special fonts
    are used, they must be included in the submission. Finally, all papers
    must be original, and have not been submitted elsewhere.

    Best Paper Awards: The KDD-2002 Best Papers Awards recognize the best
    paper in two categories: fundamental research and applications/applied
    research. Fundamental research papers are judged by the significance
    and originality of their contribution. Application/applied research
    papers are judged by the practical impact and current or potential
    usefulness of the work. In both categories, the clarity and quality
    of presentation are also considered.
