ICDM 2012: The 12th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining
Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society
December 10-13, 2012, Brussels, Belgium

The 12th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM 2012) invites proposals for half- or full-day workshops to be held on December 10, 2012. Workshops are expected to focus on new research directions on, and novel applications of, data mining.

Each workshop will solicit papers for peer review. Furthermore, as in previous years, papers that are not accepted by the main conference will be automatically sent to the workshop selected by the authors when the papers were submitted to the main conference. By the unique ICDM tradition, all accepted workshop papers will be published in a formal proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press.

Workshop proposals should be submitted in plain text or PDF, by email to both Workshop Chairs, Jilles Vreeken <> and Charles Ling <>, and must include the following elements:

- Title and acronym of the workshop
- Duration (full-day or half-day)
- Description of the workshop topic, and a draft version of CFP (not exceeding 500 words)
- Short description on how the organizers plans to attract quality submissions
- Preliminary list of invited speakers (if any)
- Short bio of the organizers
- Tentative program committee
- Contact information of the organizers (including name, affiliation, mailing address, and e-mail address)

After a workshop proposal is accepted, the organizers should create a Web page for the workshop and notify the workshop chairs of its URL. The main conference web site will provide a link to each workshop.
