 Call for Workshop Proposals
 ICDM '06: The 6th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining
 Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society
 Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong, China,
 18-22 December 2006.
 (Workshop Proposals Due: 10 April 2006)
 The Program Committee of the 6th IEEE International Conference on Data
 Mining (ICDM '06) invites proposals for Workshops.  The Workshops will
 be held at the beginning of the Conference, December 18, 2006 at the
 Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
 The workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the
 workshop, forming the program committees, reviewing and selecting the
 papers, and guaranteeing high quality worthy of the prestige and range
 of the Conference.  All papers accepted for workshops will be included
 in the Workshop Proceedings, which are expected to be published by
 IEEE Computer Society Press and will be available at the workshops.
 The workshop organizers will also have the discretion of editing
 selected papers (after their expansion and revision) into books or
 special journal issues.  Workshops may be full-day or half-day. A
 full-day workshop should select 20-25 regular papers, while a half-day
 workshop should select 10-13 regular papers, from a large number of
 submissions.  The workshop organizers should ensure the presence of
 authors of accepted papers at the workshops.
 Each workshop subject will focus on new research challenges and
 initiatives in Data Mining.  The workshops should provide an informal
 and vibrant forum for researchers and industry practitioners to share
 their research results and practical development experiences in the
 data mining field.
 Workshop Proposal Submission
 Workshop proposals should include the following elements: 
 - Title of the workshop 
 - Your name, affiliation, mailing address and e-mail address  
 - A description of the topic of the workshop (not exceeding 200 words)
 - Type of the workshop (full-day or half-day)
 - A description of how the workshop will contribute to the field of 
   Web Intelligence and/or Intelligent Agent Technology
 - A short description on how the workshop will be advertised so as 
   to ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors and high quality papers
 After the acceptance of a workshop proposal the organizer(s) should:
 - Create a "Call for papers/participation" for the workshop 
 - Create a Web page for the workshop, the link of which will be published 
   on the Conference Web site 
 - Create a Board of Reviewers (Program Committee)
 - Review and select papers 
 - Schedule the workshop activities 
 All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical
 quality, relevance, significance, and clarity.
 Those papers selected by a workshop organizer will also be reviewed by
 the Workshop Co-Chairs for final acceptance.
 We will provide an online paper submission and review system to
 support the workshops.

 Workshops Chair:
  * Shusaku Tsumoto, Shimane University, Japan
    E-mail: tsumoto at computer.org
 Note: we will not have a separate workshop registration fee this year
 (i.e., the conference registration covers everything).
 For your information, the ICDM '06 conference will be co-located with
 the IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on Web Intelligence
 (WI) and Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT) for providing synergism
 among the three research areas. It will provide opportunities for
 technical collaboration beyond that of previous conferences. The three
 conferences will have a joint opening, keynote, reception, and
 banquet. Attendees only need to register for one conference and can
 attend workshops, sessions and tutorials across the three conferences.
 We are also planning a joint panel and joint paper sessions that
 discuss common problems in the three areas.
