The IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM) has established
itself as the world's
premier research conference in data mining. The 10th edition of ICDM (ICDM
'10) provides a
leading forum for presentation of original research results, as well as
exchange and dissemination
of innovative, practical development experiences. The conference covers all
aspects of data mining,
including algorithms, software and systems, and applications. In addition,
ICDM draws researchers
and application developers from a wide range of data mining related areas
such as statistics, machine
learning, pattern recognition, databases and data warehousing, data
visualization, knowledge-based
systems, and high performance computing. By promoting novel, high quality
research findings, and
innovative solutions to challenging data mining problems, the conference
seeks to continuously advance
the state-of-the-art in data mining. Besides the technical program, the
conference will feature
invited talks from Christos Faloutsos (CMU), Geoff McLachlan (UQ) and
Xindong Wu (UVM), workshops,
tutorials, panels, and the ICDM data mining contest.

Paper Submissions

High quality papers in all data mining areas are solicited. Original papers
exploring new directions will
receive especially careful consideration. Papers that have already been
accepted or are currently under
review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for ICDM

Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 10 pages in the IEEE
2-column format
( All papers will be
double-blind reviewed by the
Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance to data
mining, originality, significance, and
clarity. Papers that do not comply with the Submission Guidelines
will be rejected without review.

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by the IEEE
Computer Society
Press and accorded oral presentation times in the main conference.
Submissions accepted as
regular papers will be allocated 10 pages in the proceedings. Submissions
accepted as short
papers will be allocated 6 pages in the proceedings and will have a shorter
presentation time
at the conference than regular papers.

A selected number of IEEE ICDM '10 accepted papers will be invited for
possible inclusion,
in expanded and revised form, in the Knowledge and Information Systems
journal published
by Springer-Verlag.

ICDM Best Paper Awards
IEEE ICDM Best Paper Awards will be conferred at the conference on the
authors of (1) the
best research paper, (2) the best application paper, and (3) the best
student paper. Strong,
foundational results will be considered for the best research paper award
and application
-oriented submissions will be considered for the best application paper
award. The best
student paper award will be given to the authors of the best paper written
solely by one
or more students.

ICDM '10 will host short and long tutorials that focus on new research
directions and initiatives. The deadline for submission of tutorial
proposals is July 13, 2010.

ICDM '10 will host short and long workshops that focus on new research
directions and initiatives. 18 workshops have been accepted and all accepted
workshop papers will be included in a separate
workshop proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.  The
deadline for Workshop paper submissions is July 23, 2010.
Please click here ( to see the
workshop details for all 18 accepted workshops.

ICDM Data Mining Contest
ICDM '10 will host a data mining contest to challenge researchers and
practitioners with a
real practical data mining problem: "Road Traffic Forecasting and
Intelligent GPS Navigation".  For further details on this contest, please

ICDM Data Mining demos and exhibits
ICDM '10 will host demos and exhibits. The exhibitors will be given the
opportunity to distribute product,
service, and company literature, give demonstrations and carry out
recruitment activities.
Demos are solicited for demonstrating data mining software systems and
libraries closely related
to the area of data mining and knowledge discovery, or showing new
technological advances in applying data mining techniques.

see Call for Demos.

Topics of Interest
Topics related to the design, analysis and implementation of data mining
theory, systems and
applications are of interest. These include, but are not limited to the
following areas: data
mining foundations, mining in emerging domains, methodological aspects and
the KDD process,
and integrated KDD applications, systems, and experiences. A detailed
listing of specific
topics can be found at the conference website (

Student Travel Scholarships
A limited number of student travel scholarships will be available to support
student authors to attend ICDM 2010 to present their papers. The student
travel scholarship committee will make the final decision for the final
awarded students.  In general, US$500 to US$1000 will be awarded to each
