		     Abstracts due March 3, 2006
		 Paper submissions due March 10, 2006

The ACM SIGKDD conference has established itself as the premier
international conference on knowledge discovery and data mining.  To
continue with this tradition, the twelfth ACM SIGKDD conference will
provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from academia,
industry, and government to share their research and experience.  The
SIGKDD conference will feature keynote presentations, oral paper
presentations, poster presentations, workshops, tutorials, and panels,
as well as the KDD Cup competition. KDD-2006 will also award
scholarships to selected students to help defray the cost of
participating in the conference.  Details will appear on the
conference Web site as they become available.

Papers on all aspects of knowledge discovery and data mining are
solicited.  Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Applications of data mining (biomedicine, business, e-commerce, defense)
- Data and result visualization
- Data warehousing  
- Data mining for community generation, social network analysis, 
  and graph-structured data  
- Foundations of data mining  
- Interactive and online data mining  
- KDD framework and process  
- Mining data streams  
- Mining high-dimensional data  
- Mining sensor data
- Mining text and semi-structured data  
- Mining multi-media data
- Mining uncertain or fuzzy data
- Novel data mining algorithms  
- Privacy and data mining
- Robust and scalable statistical methods 
- Pre-processing and post-processing for data mining  
- Security issues  
- Spatial and temporal data mining  

Important Dates:

    Electronic abstract submission: March 3, 2006

    Electronic paper submission: March 10, 2006
    Author notification: May 23, 2006

    Conference dates: August 20-23, 2006

Abstracts and full papers must be submitted electronically at the

http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html. Papers must be
submitted in PDF format. Authors are solely responsible for ensuring
that their submissions display and print properly.

All papers will be judged based on their technical merit,
significance, originality, relevance to KDD, and presentation
clarity. Papers should describe original work that has not been
published before, is not under review elsewhere, and will not be
submitted elsewhere during KDD-2006's review period.

A separate call is being issued for industrial/government track
papers; see the conference Web site at the URL above.  Calls for
workshop, tutorial and panel proposals can also be found at the
conference Web site.
