Workshop on High Performance Data Mining
October 28, 2007
Omaha, Nebraska, USA

To be Held in Conjunction with the
7th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM 2007)

With the rapid development of software and hardware, the data size and dimensionality being collected are increasing dramatically. High performance (parallel, distributed, grid-based) algorithms are crucial to any successful data mining solution. Instead of focusing on faster clock speeds and more powerful single-core CPUs, the trend clearly goes towards multi-core systems. Therefore, supercomputers, large-scale distributed computing infrastructures, and grid-based computing environments provide new opportunities for high performance data mining. Research on the corresponding algorithms must hence be kept on the forefront of this fast evolving field in order to keep pushing the performance envelope of data mining applications to meet the requirements. In addition, any novel large-scale data mining process or applications are welcome.

The goal of this workshop is to bring researchers and practitioners together in a setting where they can discuss the design, implementation, and deployment of large-scale, parallel, distributed, or grid-based data mining systems, which can manipulate data obtained from very large enterprise or scientific databases, regardless of whether the data are located centrally or are globally distributed.

Topics of Interest


All submissions should be submitted electronically, by the submission deadline of July 4, 2007, 23:59PST. Please submit it to the conference paper submission system All submissions should be made in PDF or PostScript format.
