The dramatic evolution in the availability of data in various forms from various sources is creating many fundamental challenges in computing, communication, storage, and human computer interaction issues for data mining. Several novel data mining application areas are fast emerging. These developments call for new perspectives and new approaches.
The National Science Foundation Workshop on Next Generation Data Mining (NGDM'02) will bring together data mining researchers and practitioners from diverse backgrounds for exploring the challenges and future research directions in data mining.
The NGDM02 will focus on the following areas:
1) Data Mining for
Pervasive, Distributed, and Stream Applications
2) Data mining for Counter-terrorism
3) Scientific Data Mining
4) The Web, Semantics, and Data Mining
Even though these issues seem disparate, they are closely intertwined. For instance, electronic and signal intelligence data which needs to be mined for counter terrorism is often composed of several data streams collected in a distributed environment. Similarly, scientific data mining may benefit from high throughput online algorithms and semantics. The workshop will have single track, and all participants are expected to contribute in each of the areas.
Format of the Workshop:
2. Regular Presentations
3. Panel and Open Discussions
4. Poster and demo session
CALL FOR PAPERS (Regular Presentations)
We would like to invite paper submissions from data mining researchers and
practitioners. The papers should be relevant to the focus areas of
NGDM'02. The papers must present innovative research directions that may
be suitable for the agenda of the workshop---next generation data mining
challenges. Submitted papers should not exceed 10 pages. The workshop will
accept only electronic submission of papers in PDF or Postscript format to
firstname.lastname@example.org with "NGDM02 Submission" in the subject line. The
papers will be included in the NSF Workshop Report. The workshop will also
produce an edited book published by the AAAI/MIT Press. Extended versions
of the selected papers will be included in the book.
Latex style files for the workshop proceedings can be found here .
CALL FOR DEMOS
Please send demo proposals by e-mail to email@example.com with
"NGDM02 Demo Proposal" in the subject before September 20, 2002.
Submission deadline: September 20, 2002
Notification: October 9, 2002
Camera-ready due: October 18, 2002
Workshop: November 1--3, 2002
Pre-Registration Deadline: October 16, 2002
Please click here to register for the workshop. The workshop will be able to accommodate only a limited number of participants (approximately 140). So we strongly encourage pre-registration. After the deadline we will continue to accept registrations as long as we do not surpass the capacity.
Here is the workshop program.
You should receive the reduced room rate ($159/day, offer valid until October 16, 2002) from Marriott Inner Harbor for attending the NGDM'02. When you call Marriott (toll free number: 1-800-228-9290) mention the name of the workshop "NGDM02" in order to get the reduced rate.

POSTERS AND DEMOS
Posters and Demos
Selected papers from the workshop will be published in the form of an edited book, entitled "Data Mining: Next Generation Challenges and Future Directions", by AAAI/MIT Press. The book chapters (by invitation only) should not be more than 20 book pages. The style files are available here. Please send your chapter to firstname.lastname@example.org before December 15, 2002. Please write "NGDM'02 Book Chapter" in the subject line of the e-mail.
