Conference Scope
The Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (PAKDD) is a leading international conference in the areas of data mining and knowledge discovery. It provides an international forum for researchers and industry practitioners to share their new ideas, original research results and practical development experiences from all KDD related areas including data mining, data warehousing, machine learning, databases, statistics, knowledge acquisition and automatic scientific discovery, data visualization, causal induction and knowledge-based systems.

The conference calls for research papers reporting original investigation results and industrial track papers reporting real data mining applications and system development experience. The conference also solicits proposals for tutorials on crucial technologies of knowledge discovery and data mining, and calls for workshop proposals focusing on specific new challenges and emergency issues of knowledge discovery and data mining.

The conference will award the Best Paper Award to the best full paper, and up to two Best Student Paper Awards to the best full papers with students as first authors. Each Best Student Paper Award will include a cash prize of US$500 and a certificate. PAKDD2006 will also have some grant for supporting students' travel.

A selected number of the conference accepted papers will be expanded and revised for possible inclusion in the “Knowledge and Information Systems: An International Journal” by Springer. The proceeding of the conference will be published by Springer Verlag as a volume of the LNAI series.
