Special Track on Data Mining (DM)
CALL FOR PAPERS
Over the past seventeen years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has become a primary forum for applied computer scientists and application developers from around the world to interact and present their work. SAC 2004 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP) and is presented in cooperation with other ACM Special Interest Groups.

Special Track on Data Mining
Data mining has become a popular way of discovering new knowledge from
large and complex data sets such as business transaction data, GIS data,
environmental data, genomic data, text and web data, and so on. Advances
in data mining technology have made it possible to solve many interesting
problems in business, science and industry and continue to be the focus
of many research program. Recently emerged the idea that databases should
provide support and technology for data mining, as it occurred for OLAP
and data warehouses in last decade.
Submission of papers:
Papers should represent original and previously unpublished ideas that are currently not under review in any conference or journal. Both basic and applied research papers are solicited. Papers describing novel applications and making significant research contributions are also of interest.
The paper should not be more than 15 pages long using 11 point font and 1 inch margins on all four sides on letter size paper. Papers that fail to comply to length limitations risk rejection.
Electronic submission in PDF format is preferred, but Word and Postscript will also be accepted. Please note that hard copy and fax submissions will not be accepted.
Authors must register their intent to submit a paper by submitting an electronic abstract of a maximum length of 200 words by the due date prior to the actual submission and obtain a paper identification number. All submissions must be through the conference submission site at http://dmtrack.di.unito.it/openchair . The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the submitted paper, and self-references should be in the third person. This is to facilitate blind review. All submitted papers must include the paper identification number on the front page above the title of the paper. No author information should appear on the front page. The paper ID obtained from SAC should be used as the file name for the electronic submission of the paper as a PDF (preferred) attachment.
Enquiries and questions may be directed to the Track Chair. Additional details are available at the conference home page at http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2004/ and at the track home page at http://dmtrack.di.unito.it/.
Each submitted paper will be fully refereed and undergo
a blind review process by at least
three referees. The conference proceedings will be published
by ACM. Hence, all accepted papers should be submitted
in ACM 2-column camera ready format for publication in the symposium
The total number of pages allowed for the final papers
without any extra page fee is five (5). The additional page charge is
specified on the registration form (should be 60 USD for each extra
page). A maximum of 8 pages in total is allowed for each manuscript.
Poster Publication of Selected Papers
A set of selected papers, which did not get accepted as full papers, will be accepted as poster papers and will be published as extended 2-page abstracts in the symposium proceedings.
Pubblication in Journal:
A selected number of accepted papers will be invited for expansion and revision for possible inclusion in "Information Systems" by Elsevier after additional reviewing.
