7th International Workshop on High Performance and Distributed Mining:
   24th April,  2004

in conjunction with Fourth International SIAM Conference on Data Mining
 Hilton at the Disney Resort,  Orlando, Florida.
 Conference Web-site: http://www.siam.org/meetings/SDM04

Workshop Web-site: http://www.cis.uhio-state.edu/~agrawal/hpdm04.html


Workshop History: This is the 7th workshop on this theme held annually.
The first four were held in conjunction with IPDPS. Last two years'
were held along-side the SIAM Data Mining conference. This year's
while continuing its focus on traditional areas of high performance data
mining, has a special focus on grid-based and distributed data mining.

This workshop will focus on the emerging field of high performance,
distributed, and grid-based mining. With the emergence of grid
architectures and standards, many efforts are being initiated on
grid-based and distributed mining. This brings in new challenges in
applying and developing distributed and high-performance algorithms.
Privacy, security, and resource discovery are all important issues.
Interoperability with grid standards is another issues. This area also
has synergy with the growing area of mining in mobile and sensor network

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

    * Distributed and Grid-based data mining algorithms.
    * Systems and tools for data mining and exploration in grid-based
      and distributed environments.
    * Standards and architectures for grid-based data mining.
    * Privacy and security considerations in distributed data mining.
    * P2P data mining.
    * Resource-aware data mining.
    * Data mining in mobile / sensor network environments.
    * Data stream mining and management.
    * Efficient, scalable, disk-based, parallel and distributed
      algorithms for large-scale data mining.
    * Parallel and distributed techniques for incremental, exploratory
      and interactive mining.
    * Frameworks for parallel data mining.
    * Applications of parallel, distributed, grid-based, and mobile data
    * Theoretical foundation of parallel, distributed, and grid-based
      data mining.

We invite papers treating the above topics in
one of many ways. The papers could describe new results, give overview
or experiences with existing systems, describe new and emerging
applications, present work in progress where interesting insights have
been gained, or critically survey existing work. The papers should not
exceed 3000 words. This is roughly equal to 6 pages of single spaced
text with 10 pt format. You can submit by emailing the PS or PDF
file to agrawal at cis.ohio-state.edu.

    * Paper Submissions due :
      January 15, 2004
    * Notification to authors:
      Feb 20, 2004.
    * Final papers due:
      March 10, 2004.
