December 12, 2016: Workshop date
16th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (IEEE ICDM 2016) will
host a forum for PhD students to highlight their dissertation work. The
PhD Forum spans various topics of data mining and related fields such
as machine learning, artificial intelligence, statistics, databases,
information retrieval, multimedia mining, social-media analysis, and web
mining. Application areas of data mining, such as bioinformatics and
science informatics are also encouraged. Participants with
interdisciplinary work across the areas are particularly welcome.
The PhD Forum invites papers from doctoral students describing
their work. Accepted papers will be published in IEEE proceedings.
During the workshop, researchers with experience in supervising and
examining doctoral students will be able to participate and provide
feedback to the participants.
All deadlines are at 11:59PM Pacific Daylight Time.
Submission deadline: Aug 12, 2016

submissions should propose research ideas that are mature enough to be
presented into a paper and whose content can evolve to become the
substantial part of a PhD dissertation. The authors should be PhD
students or Masters students aspiring to become PhD candidates. Students
may also consider submitting work on one or more sub-problems of their
dissertation. Papers should address research problems in the PhD
proposal of the students, and they should focus on highlighting the
challenges of the problems, the originality of the approach, as well as
technical aspects of the proposed techniques. Preliminary experimental
evaluation should also be included. Authors of accepted submissions are
expected to participate in person to the Forum.
The PhD forum is open for two types of submissions:
Regular papers should present
established research with enough scientific contribution to the field
(at most 10 pages in length).
Extended abstracts are meant for
ongoing research that is expected to provide further advances in the
future (2 pages in length).
