The 17th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (IEEE ICDM 2017) will
host a forum for PhD students to highlight their dissertation work.  The
PhD Forum spans various topics of data mining and related fields such as
machine learning, artificial intelligence, statistics, databases,
information retrieval, social media analysis, and multimedia and web
mining. Application areas of data mining, such as bioinformatics,
healthcare informatics, urban informatics, and science informatics are also
encouraged. Participants with interdisciplinary y work are particularly

The PhD Forum invites papers from doctoral students describing their work.
Accepted papers will be   published   in   IEEE   proceedings.   During
the   workshop, researchers with experience   in supervising and examining
doctoral students   will   participate and   provide   feedback to   the

*Submission *

The  submissions  should  propose  research  ideas  that  are  mature
enough  to  be  presented  into  a paper  and  can  evolve  to  become  a
substantial  part  of  a  PhD dissertation.  The  authors  should  be PhD
students or Masters students aspiring to become PhD candidates.  Students
may also consider submitting work on one or more sub-problems of their
dissertation. Papers should address research problems  in  the  PhD
proposal  of  the  students,  and  they  should  focus  on  highlighting
the challenges of the problems, the originality of the  proposed an
approach, and technical aspects of the proposed   techniques.
Preliminary   experimental   evaluation   should   also   be   included.
All submissions  will  be  single-blind  reviewed  by  the  PhD  Forum
Committee.  Authors  of  accepted submissions are expected to participate
in person to the forum.

The PhD Forum is open for two types of submissions:

* Regular  papers  should  present  established  research  with  enough
scientific  contribution  to  the field (at most 10 pages in length).

* Extended abstracts are  meant  for ongoing research that is expected to
provide  further advances in the future (2 pages in length).
