PAKDD-2011: The 15th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data

Shenzhen, China
May 24 - 27, 2011.



The Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (PAKDD)
is a leading international conference in the areas of data mining and
knowledge discovery (KDD). It provides an international forum for
researchers and industry practitioners to share their new ideas, original
research results and practical development experiences from all KDD related
areas, including data mining, data warehousing, machine learning,
intelligence, databases, statistics, knowledge engineering, visualization,
and decision-making systems.

PAKDD-2011 will be held in Shenzhen, China. Shenzhen is the southern
financial center
of mainland China, bordering to New Territories of Hong Kong. As one of
first Special Economic Zones, Shenzhen holds many China's known high-tech

in mainland China cities.

We invite proposals for half-day tutorials from active researchers and
experienced tutors. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art
research, development and applications in a specific data mining direction,
and stimulate and facilitate future work. Tutorials on interdisciplinary
directions, novel and fast growing directions, and significant applications
are highly encouraged.
