Conference Scope

The Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
(PAKDD) is a leading international conference in the areas of data
mining and knowledge discovery (KDD). It provides an international forum
for researchers and industry practitioners to share their new ideas,
original research results and practical development experiences from
all KDD related areas, including data mining, data warehousing,
machine learning, aritificial intelligence, databases, statistics,
knowledge engineering, visualization, and decision-making systems.

The conference calls for research papers reporting original
investigation results and industrial papers reporting real data
mining applications and system development experience.

The conference will confer a Best Paper Award to the best full paper,
and the Best Student Papers from amongst the student submissions. The
proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer as a volume
of the LNAI series.

PAKDD2011 will be held in Shenzhen, one of the most attractive cities
in China.

About Shenzhen

Shenzhen is located in the Guangdong province of southern China,
bordering the New Territories of Hong Kong. As one of China's first
Special Economic Zones, Shenzhen was built from a small fishing
village 30 years ago to a modern city with a population of more than
10 million. Shenzhen is mainland China's southern financial center and
the home of the Shenzhen Stock Exchange and many of China's best known
high-tech companies such Huawei, ZTE and Tencent. In 2009, Shenzhen's
GDP was ranked no. 4 in mainland China.

Shenzhen is tourist attraction city with many famous theme
parks. Splendid China and China Folk Culture Villages introduce
visitors to China's long history and varied cultures, while Windows of
the World will take you to every corner of the world in one day. Happy
Valley, the largest of Shenzhen City's theme parks is located on the
picturesque coastline with luxurious hotels, scenic views and various
entertainment activities.

Shenzhen is a migrant city with people from all parts of China. More
and more foreigners from all over the world work or visit
Shenzhen. Shenzhen famous shopping and dining attracts many people
from Hong Kong each day. Goods and services are comparatively cheaper
than those in Hong Kong. Restaurants serve various cuisines from the
provinces of China, such as hot and spicy specialties of Sichuan and
Hunan provinces, cold dishes of northeast China and the perennial
Cantonese meals which are all favorite dishes of the locals. Japanese
and Thai restaurants are also becoming popular.

Shenzhen weather is mild, with plentiful sunshine and rainfall all
year round due to its subtropical marine climate. The temperature is
22.4 C (72.32 F) on average.

Shenzhen Baoan International Airport connects to all major cities in
China and several regions and countries in Asia. International
travelers can use Hong Kong International Airport to come to
Shenzhen. Transportation is available from Hong Kong International
Airport to the Shenzhen border.

The conference will arrange accommodations at different cost levels.

==============================================================

Paper Submission

Each paper should consist of a cover page with title, authors' names,
postal and email address, and an abstract with up to 200-words, up to
5 keywords and a body not longer than 12 single-spaced pages with font
size at least 11 pts. Authors are strongly encouraged to use Springer
LNCS/LNAI manuscript submission guidelines (available at
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) for their initial
submissions. All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format
only, using the conference management tool. Detailed instructions
will be available at the conference website
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pakdd2011.

The submitted papers must not be previously published anywhere, and
must not be submitted to any other conferences before and during the
PAKDD review process. A journal submission may be concurrent, but
would be expected to have significant additional material not in the
conference submission, and the final revision should not have been
submitted until the PAKDD reviews have been made available to the
authors. Ideally the final journal version should be prepared after
the conference so that feedback from the conference can be included.
Submitting a paper to the conference means that if the paper were
accepted, at least one author will attend the conference to present
the paper. For no-show authors, their affiliations will receive a
notification.

Before submitting your paper, please carefully read and agree with the
PAKDD submission policy and no-show policy:
