The PAKDD Doctoral Symposium on Data Mining (DSDM’11) is to be held in conjunction with the 15th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (PAKDD'11), Shenzhen, China, May 24-27, 2011.

DSDM’11 aims to provide a forum for Ph.D. students and junior researchers who have just received their Ph.D. degrees. The participants can have the opportunity to present and discuss their recent works on data mining foundations, techniques and applications with senior researchers in the community. The goals of this symposium are:

  • Allowing Ph.D. students to seek for constructive feedbacks and advices from senior researchers.
  • Bridging possible research collaborations.
  • Contributing to the conference goals by interacting with other researchers at the main conference.
The authors that satisfy the following conditions are invited to submit their manuscripts related all aspects of data mining to the symposium:
  • The first author of the paper is a Ph.D. candidate.
  • The first author of the paper just received his/her Ph.D. degree within a year.
The best paper award of DSDM'11 will be granted to the Ph.D. student who submitted his/her original work to the symposium, based on the evaluation from the PC members.
