Workshop on Data Mining and the Grid (DM-Grid'04)
to be held in conjunction with ICDM 2004

November 1, 2004,  Brighton, UK

Workshop Aim

The workshop is aimed at bringing together researchers from the various
areas  of  data mining that  are relevant to the emerging world of grid 
computing. By encouraging an exchange of ideas and perceptions, we hope 
to foster a comprehensive view of the benefits of grid computing to the 
data mining community, and of the related challenges and directions for 

Topics of Interest

Possible topics of interest are any that have a bearing on data mining 
and grid technologies, including but not restricted to:

 * Data location and matching in the grid
 * Architectures for data mining on the grid
 * Scalable distributed data mining algorithms
 * Privacy preserving and security in data mining algorithms
 * Authentication of grid data mining computations
 * Agent-based data mining
 * Data mining as a Web service and as a grid component
 * Virtualization of data mining software
 * Data mining workflow in distributed environments
 * Applications of grid data mining to specific domains (e.g., 
   finance, bioinformatics, and health care)

Submitted papers  must not have  been published or currently  be under
consideration for publication at another venue.

We are primarily interested in the algorithmic and architectural 
aspects of data mining over the grid. 
Questions about the conference scope should be directed to the program 
co-chairs at

Important Dates

Paper submission: September 6th,  2004 (12pm EST)
Notification:     September 24th, 2004
Camera ready due: October 11th,   2004
Workshop: 	  November 1st,   2004
Submission Instructions

All submissions will be handled electronically. More details are 
posted on the  web site,
Informal  workshop  proceedings  will  be  published  by   ICDM, 
and distributed at the workshop. 
Submission of abstracts is not required. 
Full papers in PDF format must be submitted by September 6th, 2004 
(12pm Eastern Standard Time).  Papers should be in the ICDM camera 
ready format (IEEE 2-column format), and limited to 10 pages of US 
"Letter" size paper (8.5 by 11 inches). 
Questions about the submission process should be directed to the 
program co-chairs at

Workshop Format

Our goal in this workshop is to foster a multi-perspective view of 
the  possibilities  and  the  challenges of  data mining  in  grid 
environments.  We  intend to encourage interaction and exchange of 
ideas  among the participants.  For this reason  we expect to have 
longer than usual Q&A periods after paper presentations and,  time 
permits, a panel discussion.
