SIAM will keep a list of attendees who wish to share a room with another attendee to reduce expenses. If you are interested in finding a roommate and would like to be placed on the rooming list, please forward complete contact information to [email protected] (preferred) or fax it to the SIAM Conference Department at +1-215-386-7999. Be sure to mention that you want to be placed on the SDM07 list. If information is incomplete, we cannot guarantee that your name will be included. SIAM will provide the listing electronically to all attendees on the list. It is the responsibility of the attendee to make the contacts and arrangements with other attendees on the list.

Student Travel Awards
Through funding from IBM Research, travel awards are available for SDM07.
Applications for a student travel award should include the student’s resume and a letter from the student and the student’s advisor. The student’s letter should indicate how s/he would benefit from attending SDM 2007 (including which areas in the conference program would impact the student’s research) and include a brief summary of research interests and accomplishments. Students should demonstrate a serious interest in data mining through their coursework and projects. The letter should also mention the student’s visa status .
The student’s advisor should submit a letter of recommendation, confirming that the student is a candidate in good standing and commenting on the strengths and potential contributions of the student. Furthermore, the letter should indicate how the student will benefit from attending SDM 2007, and the how the technical program suits the student’s research area.
Applications should be filed by electronic submission to Professor Jaideep Srivastava by March 16th, 2007. Although applicants who have an accepted paper at SDM 2007 will be given preference, acceptance of a paper is not a necessary condition for the award.
