Call For Award Nomination

2016 IEEE ICDM Research Contributions and Outstanding Service Awards

The IEEE ICDM Research Contributions Award recognizes influential research contributions to the field of data mining. The Outstanding Service Award is for major service contributions that have promoted data mining as a field and ICDM as the world premier research conference in data mining.

The IEEE ICDM Research Contributions Award is given to one individual or one group who has made influential research contributions to the field of data mining.

The IEEE ICDM Outstanding Service Award is given to one individual or one group who has made major service contributions that have promoted data mining as a field and ICDM as the world’s premier research conference in data mining.


For the Research Contributions Award, each nomination should consist of the following pieces of information: (a) up to 3 significant publications, (b) how these publications are relevant to the data mining community in general and to ICDM in particular, and (c) the broader impacts of these publications, in terms of citations and practical applications.

For the Outstanding Service Award, each nomination should include the following pieces of information: (a) up to 3 significant service activities (such as running conferences and journals and facilitating
data mining research, development, and applications), and (b) how these activities have promoted data mining as a field and ICDM as the world’s premier research conference in data mining.

A nominator can be any researcher in any country, with a possible list of endorsers. The nominator should let the nominee know before a nomination is forwarded to the nomination committee chair. A nominee can be an individual or a group of researchers who have performed the research or service activities together. A nomination for either award is valid for 3 years. An unsuccessful nomination for one year will be automatically forwarded to the following two years’ nomination pools, whether or not the nominator adds new information in the following years.

The recipients of both awards from the last three years form the nomination committee, with the previous Outstanding Service Award recipient as the nomination committee chair.
