Submission Guidelines

Each paper should consist of a cover page with title, authors' names, postal and email address, an up to 200-words abstract, up to 5 keywords; a separate body satisfying double-blind review purpose and not longer than 12 single-spaced pages with font size 10 pt; and put both the cover page and the main body into one file. Authors are strongly encouraged to use Springer LNCS/LNAI manuscript submission guidelines (available at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) for their initial submissions. All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format only, using EasyChair submission system.

The submitted papers must not be previously published anywhere, and must not be submitted to any other conferences before and during the PAKDD review process. A journal submission may be concurrent, but would be expected to have significant additional material not in the conference submission, and the final revision should not have been submitted until the PAKDD reviews have been made available to the authors. Ideally the final journal version should be prepared after the conference so that feedback from the conference can be included. Submitting a paper to the conference means that if the paper were accepted, at least one author will attend the conference to present the paper. For no-show authors, their affiliations will receive a notification. The program committee chairs are not allowed to submit papers to the conference for a fair review process.

All papers will be double-blind reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance to data mining, originality, significance, and clarity. Papers that do not comply with the Submission Guidelines will be rejected without review.

Before submitting your paper, please carefully read and agree with the submission policy and no-show policy of PAKDD 2012.

Submission Policy

  • A paper must fit the scope of PAKDD*
  • A paper must conform to the required format and page limitations as shown in the Submission Guidelines.
  • A paper must be original, and must not be published or under consideration to be published elsewhere.
  • A paper must comply with the double-blind review purpose, by deleting any information including references that may indicate the authors.
  • Plagiarism is unacceptable.
    • The verbatim copy and/or reuse of material (text, formula, graphics) from other published papers (either by the author or by other authors) without explicit citation, is considered to be plagiarism. Quotations should be clearly identified and include the appropriate citation. For example, "According to Smith and Jones (2007) '......'", or "'......' (Smith and Jones, 2007).
    • When a new submission is based on the authors or on other author's previously published works, the citation of the previous works should be clearly given in the new paper. Furthermore, the novel contribution of the current paper, which extends the previous works, should be clearly indicated.

This policy on plagiarism for PAKDD is mainly from the policy on plagiarism directly quoted from the IEEE: "How to Handle Plagiarism: New Guidelines"

* The scope of PAKDD and the required format and page limitations are indicated in the Call For Papers of PAKDD.
