December 18:12 ICDM and 14 WI-IAT workshops
December 19-21: The main conference of ICDM-WI-IAT'06:
  • ICDM-WI-IAT'06 Joint Keynote by Prof. Ian Foster,
  • 2 ICDM'06, 3 WI-IAT'06 Invited Talks, 1 WIC Feature Talk
  • 8 Tutorials, panels, and research track paper,
  • industry and demo track presentations.

The papers were selected from 1879 submissions received from over 60 countries and regions.

All main conference and workshop proceedings will be published in the conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press, now indexed by EI.

On-line registration (and more information) at

Regular registration covers all the events of ICDM-WI-IAT'06 during the four conference days including workshops and tutorials, and includes proceedings for one of the conferences and its associated workshops.

ICDM '06, WI'06 and IAT'06 will be co-located, providing synergism among the three research areas: Data Mining, Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology. This provides opportunities for technical collaboration beyond that of previous conferences. The three conferences will have a joint opening, keynote, reception, and banquet. Attendees only need to register for one conference and can attend workshops, sessions, invited talks, panels and tutorials across the three conferences.
