*Tutorials at IEEE ICDM*
The IEEE International Conference on Data Mining series (ICDM) has
established itself as the world's premier research conference in data
mining. It provides an international 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.
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 features workshops, tutorials, panels and, since 2007, the
ICDM data mining contest.

ICDM '13 will host short and long tutorials as well as workshops that focus
on new research directions and initiatives. The tutorials will be part of
the main conference technical program, and are free of charge to the
attendees of the conference. Further, the conference provides the following
support for each long/short tutorial: a honorarium of $500 and one
complimentary registration for a tutorial presenter who is not also a
presenting author.

We invite proposals for tutorials from active researchers and experienced
tutors. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art research,
development and applications in a specific data mining direction, and
stimulate and facilitate future work. A tutorial should not only focus on
the presenter's previous work. Tutorials on interdisciplinary directions,
novel and fast growing directions, and significant applications are highly
encouraged. ICDM will provide an honorarium for each tutorial. It is
possible, depending on actual conference attendance, that the conference
can (partly) support travel and subsistence expenses for tutorial speakers.
If you are expecting the conference to cover these expenses for you, please
provide an estimate for these expenses in your proposal, and indicate
whether the requested expense support is a necessity for you to present the
tutorial. We will assume that the tutorial speakers will be able to cover
these expenses from their own sources if no estimate is included in their
proposals.

*Format of the Submission*
A tutorial proposal should be formatted in the following sections:

   - Title
   - Abstract (up to 150 words)
   - Topic overview: What will the tutorial be about? Why do you believe
   this is an interesting and significant subject for the machine learning and
   data mining community at large?
   - Content details: An outline of the tutorial in the form of a bulleted
   list with references and estimates for the time that will be devoted to
   each subject. (up to 1 page)
   - Target audience and prerequisites (up to 100 words): From which areas
   do you expect potential participants to come? What prior knowledge, if any,
   do you expect from the audience? What will the participants learn? How many
   participants do you expect?
   - Relevance and rationale of presenting the tutorial at ICDM 2013 (up to
   200 words)
   - A list of forums and their time and locations if the tutorial or a
   similar/highly related tutorial has been presented by the same author(s)
   before, and highlight the similarity/difference between those and the one
   proposed for ICDM 2013 (up to 100 words for each entry)
   - A list of tutorials on the similar/highly related topics given by
   other people, and highlight the difference between yours and theirs (up to
   100 words for each entry)
   - A list of other tutorials given by the authors, please list the
   titles, the presenters and the forums only.
   - Tutor's short bio and their expertise related to the tutorial (up to
   100 words per tutor)
   - Length of the tutorial: short (1.5-3 hours) or long (3-6 hours). If
   you are flexible, please indicate in the outline the content that will not
   be included if a short tutorial is given.
   - A list of up to 20 most important references that will be covered in
   the tutorial
   - (Optional) URLs of the slides/notes of the previous tutorials given by
   the authors, and any specific audio/video/computer requirements for the
   tutorial
