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 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.
