IEEE ICDM 2012 Call for Demos

ICDM 2012: The 12th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society
December 10-13, 2012, Brussels, Belgium

Submission due by August 10, 2012

The IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM) has established itself as a premier research conference in data mining. It provides a leading forum for the presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative ideas, drawing researchers and practitioners from a wide range of data mining related areas such as statistics, machine learning, pattern recognition, databases, visualization, high performance computing, and so on. 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 invited talks from research and industry leaders, as well as workshops, tutorials, panels, and the ICDM data mining contest.


We invite proposals for demonstrations to be displayed at the Demo Session that will be organized during the ICDM 2012 conference. Demos of data mining software that incorporate state-of-the-art techniques, provide an innovative user interface, and/or allow for fluent interaction with the user are highly encouraged. Demonstrated software is not required to be ready for commercial application, as long as it is of interest to the ICDM community.

A demo is for:

  • demonstrating data mining software systems and libraries closely related to the area of data mining and knowledge discovery;
  • showing new technological advances in applying data mining techniques.

The demo proposal needs to describe:

  • the motivation for the demonstrated concepts;
  • the design;
  • the development and functionality of the work in an interactive setting;
  • the significance of the contribution.

The ICDM 2012 Demo Session will provide data mining researchers and practitioners an exciting and highly interactive way to explore new ideas and results. Accepted demo papers will be published in the ICDM 2012 Workshop Proceedings.

Preparing Your Demo Submissions

The demonstration submissions must be within four pages in IEEE proceedings style (double-column pages) and should include:

  • Title
  • Authors (name, affiliation, email, address, phone and fax)
  • Corresponding author with her/his email address
  • Abstract (max. 150 words)
  • Keywords
  • Category of the submission
  • URL for the demo software (if available)
  • Paper ID if the demo is related to a paper at the main conference
  • Equipment you will bring (e.g. laptop, projector)
  • Equipment you will need (e.g. table, poster board, power sockets)
  • Special requirements (e.g. extra space and if so how much, video projector)
  • Discussion of the present state of your demo (e.g. ready to demonstrate now, but if not, include a realistic estimate for conclusion and what remains to be done before you have a demonstrable system)

Selection Criteria

  • Relevance to the ICDM community
  • Novelty of the application domain
  • Technical advances and challenges
  • Quality and soundness of the underlying technology
  • Potential for public interaction
  • Overall attractiveness of the demonstrated system

Important Dates

  • Demo submission deadline: August 10
  • Demo notifications: September 18
  • Camera-ready copies and copyright forms: October 15


Submission is closed.
