Call for Demos

We invite proposals for demonstrations to be displayed at the Demo Session that will be organized during the ICDM 2016 conference. Demos of data mining software that incorporate state-of-the-art techniques and novel application domains, provide an innovative intelligent user interface, and/or allow for fluent interaction with the user are highly encouraged. Demonstrated software is not required to be ready for commercial application, as long as it is of interest to the ICDM community.

A demo is for:

  • demonstrating data mining software systems and libraries closely related to the area of data mining and knowledge discovery;
  • showcasing new technological advances in applying data mining techniques.

The demo proposal needs to describe:

  • the motivation for the demonstrated concepts;
  • the design;
  • the development and functionality of the work in an interactive setting;
  • the significance of the contribution both from a research and from a practical perspective.

The ICDM 2016 Demo Session will provide data mining researchers and practitioners an exciting and highly interactive way to explore new ideas and results. Accepted demo papers will be published in the ICDM 2016 Workshop Proceedings.

Submission Guidelines

The demonstration submissions must be within four pages in IEEE proceedings style (double-column pages) and must include:

  • Title
  • Authors (name, affiliation, email, address, phone and fax)
  • Corresponding author with her/his email address
  • Abstract (max. 150 words)
  • Keywords
  • Category of the submission
  • URL for the demo software (if available)
  • Paper ID if the demo is related to a paper at the main conference
  • Equipment you will bring (e.g. laptop, projector)
  • Equipment you will need (e.g. table, poster board, power sockets)
  • Special requirements (e.g. extra space and if so how much, video projector)
  • Discussion of the present state of your demo (e.g. ready to demonstrate now, but if not, include a realistic estimate for conclusion and what remains to be done before you have a demonstrable system)

Demos must be submitted electronically in online submission system.

Selection Criteria

  • Relevance to the ICDM community
  • Novelty of the application domain
  • Technical advances and challenges
  • Quality and soundness of the underlying technology
  • Potential for public interaction
  • Overall attractiveness of the demonstrated system
