SCOPE

The dramatic increase in the availability of data from various
sources is creating many fundamental challenges in computing,
storage, communication, and human computer interaction issues for
data mining. Scientists, engineers, and businesses are facing
with emerging problems that involve complex networked
observations, massive simulation-data sets, and ubiquitous
sensory data streams. These heterogeneous data sources should be
linked and analyzed for discovering the next frontiers of
science, arts, and technology.  We also need to look beyond the
current cyber-infrastructure and explore how the next generation
of networked data mining applications will support such
large-scale, ubiquitous, multi-source, and data intensive
domains.

This National Science Foundation workshop on Next Generation Data
Mining and Cyber Enabled Discovery for Innovation (NGDM’07) will
bring together data mining researchers, scientists, and engineers
from a diverse background along with domain experts for various
emerging problems that are relevant to Cyber Enabled Discovery
for Innovation (CDI). The objective is to enhance the
understanding of the research problems and facilitate creating an
environment for better understanding the challenges in front of
the data mining and the CDI community.

NGDM’07 will focus on the following areas:

    (1) Data Mining in e-Science and Engineering
    (2) Media, Pervasive Computing, and Ubiquitous Data Mining
    (3) Data mining in Security Surveillance, and Privacy Protection
    (4) Social Science, Finance, Digital Humanities, and Data Mining
    (5) The Web, Semantics, and Data Mining

CALL FOR PAPERS

We would like to invite paper (extended abstract) submissions
from data mining researchers and practitioners. The papers should
be relevant to the focus areas of NGDM'07. The papers must
present innovative research directions that may be suitable for
the agenda of the workshop.  Submitted papers should not exceed 5
pages. The workshop will accept only electronic submission of
papers in PDF format to ngdm07 at agnik dot com with "NGDM07
Submission" in the subject line. The papers will be included in
the NSF Workshop Proceedings. The workshop will also produce an
edited book. Extended versions of the selected papers will be
included in the book.
