Call for Papers                 

The Second Workshop on Temporal Data Mining July 23, 2002 - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA

In conjunction with
The Eighth ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD-2002)

Papers due   : June 7 
Notification : June 21
Camera Ready : June 28

Much of the data contained in large databases has explicit or implicit temporal information. In spite of this, most of the data mining techniques tend to look for static relationships within the data. The aim of this workshop is to critically evaluate the need for temporal data mining and identify promising technologies and methodologies for doing the same.

Topics of interest include:

  • Foundational Issues in temporal data mining
  • Temporal Data Mining Techniques and Methodologies
  • Suitable data models and frameworks for temporal data mining
  • Suitable visualization techniques for temporal data mining
  • Incorporating domain knowledge for efficient temporal data mining
  • Scalability of temporal data mining algorithms
  • Mining of temporal data on the web

Paper submission:

Authors are invited to submit papers related to above topics. We encourage submissions that describe significant contributions to these areas as well as research that are at an early stage. We welcome survey, state-of-the-art, and position papers as well as papers that describe significant applications, software, systems, and solutions. Papers should be about 12 pages. An abstract and complete contact information should be included in a cover page. Please submit electronic copies to workshop co-chairs.
