Paper Submissions and Key Dates

Instructions for Submitting Final Versions of Accepted Papers and Posters

Preparing Your Paper
We would like to encourage you to prepare your paper in LaTeX2e. Papers should be formatted using the SIAM Data Mining macro, which is available through the SIAM website. You can access it at http://www.siam.org/tex/books/booktex.htm. The filename is soda2e.all. Make sure you use the macros for Data Mining proceedings; papers prepared using other proceedings macros will not be accepted. No chapter numbers, running heads, or page numbers should be included in your file. If your paper does not meet these requirements, it may not be included in the proceedings. Check your paper carefully for typos and send only the final version as SIAM will not be making any corrections to your file. If the title of your paper has changed since you submitted your abstract, please let us know. Additionally, if you have added or dropped an author, please let us know.

SIAM has designed the macro and formatting instructions to ensure a uniform presentation throughout the proceedings. If formatting instructions are not followed, we cannot guarantee that your paper will be included in the proceedings.

Page Limitation
Regular and poster papers should have a maximum length of 12 pages. Because of the large number of contributors, we must ask you to adhere strictly to the page limitation specified. If your paper exceeds this amount, it may not be included in the proceedings.

Submission of Paper
You must submit your paper in .pdf format. PDFs must be created using Adobe Acrobat.  If you are unable to create your PDF using Adobe Acrobat, please submit the Postscript file of your paper (with fonts embedded) to SIAM for PDF creation.
Name your file SubmissionID_lastname.pdf and submit it to ftp.siam.org, using the anonymous login. Place your file in the folder pub/incoming/datamining2009. Please make sure that your file is transferred in binary mode. We are unable to receive files transferred in ASCII mode.

Please notify Nancy Griscom via e-mail (griscom@siam.org) when you have ftp’d your files to SIAM. Due to the volume of submissions leading up to the due date, notification of receipt of your file may not be immediate.

  1. The Program Committee member is an advisee or advisor of any one of the authors. This applies to current and former advisees and advisors.
  2. The Program Committee member is a collaborator or co-author within the last two years of one of the authors. Collaborations include things like joint papers published or in submission  as well as joint projects either in progress or within the last two years.
  3. The Program Committee member is a relative of one of the authors.
  4. The Program Committee member is part of the same organization or has been a part of the same organization as one of the authors within the last two years.

Inaccurate representation of conflicts of interest can result in the paper being rejected without review at the discretion of the program chairs.
