(Bsubmissions. The workshop organizers should ensure the presence of
(Bauthors of accepted papers at the workshops.
(BEach workshop subject will focus on new research challenges and
(Binitiatives in Data Mining. The workshops should provide an informal
(Band vibrant forum for researchers and industry practitioners to share
(Btheir research results and practical development experiences in the
(Bdata mining field.

(BNote: we will not have a separate workshop registration fee this year
(B(i.e., the conference registration covers everything).
(BFor your information, the ICDM '06 conference will be co-located with
(Bthe IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on Web Intelligence
(B(WI) and Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT) for providing synergism
(Bamong the three research areas. It will provide opportunities for
(Btechnical collaboration beyond that of previous conferences. The three
(Bconferences will have a joint opening, keynote, reception, and
(Bbanquet. Attendees only need to register for one conference and can
(Battend workshops, sessions and tutorials across the three conferences.
(BWe are also planning a joint panel and joint paper sessions that
(Bdiscuss common problems in the three areas.
