The SIAM Data Mining (SDM15) Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with the conference. Tutorials are an effective way to educate and/or provide the necessary background to the intended audience enabling them to understand technical advances.

For SDM15, we are seeking proposals for tutorials on all topics related to data mining. A tutorial may be a theme-oriented comprehensive survey, discuss novel data mining techniques or may center around successful and timely application of data mining in important application areas (e.g. medicine, national security, scientific data analysis). For examples of typical SIAM tutorials, see the set of accepted tutorials at previous SIAM conferences SDM11, SDM12, SDM13, and SDM14.

Tutorials are open to all conference attendees without any extra fees. The typical tutorial will be 2 hours long (longer tutorials will be considered). Previous SDM conferences attracted up to 100 attendees in a tutorial.

Proposals should be submitted electronically by October 12, 2014 11:59 PM MDT to:

Prof. Tao Li
School of Computing and Information Sciences

Proposals should be submitted in PDF format (for other formats please contact the tutorial chair first). Proposals should include the following:
