 IEEE ICDM 2001: Call for Tutorials
 **********************************

The 2001 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM '01) will
include tutorials providing in-depth background on specific subjects
in data mining. The recency of the data mining field, and the variety
of disciplines that are represented, lead to many possibilities for
good tutorials:

 * Short courses on areas of machine learning, databases, or
 statistics that may be "old hat" to specialists in that
 discipline, but are new to a majority of the conference
 attendees. (e.g., An Introduction to Hidden Markov Models).
 * Surveys of new and developing research areas in data
 mining. (e.g., Text Mining).
 * End-to-end descriptions of the practical application of data
 mining technology (i.e., applications that may be "typical" for a
 paper, but provide an example of issues faced in a data mining
 project that would generalize to problems faced by the conference
 attendees).
 * An in-depth coverage of a past research breakthrough that is now
 becoming a mature technology.

The topics of interest fall within those described in the conference
Call for Papers (http://kais.mines.edu/~xwu/icdm/icdm-01.html).

Submission Details
==================

The tutorial proposal should include the following:

 1. Title and abstract of the tutorial;
 2. Intended audience. Include prerequisite knowledge required of the
 attendees, and the expected areas of interest. (For example, a
 tutorial on statistics for people applying data mining tools
 vs. a tutorial on statistics for people building data mining
 tools);
 3. Length of time needed (e.g., half day or full day); and
 4. Short biographies of the presenters.

Tutorial materials such as handouts and slides should be included if
available, but are not required for submission. However, providing
such materials will show depth and maturity of the tutorial, and will
be a strong factor in the selection process.

Please send a soft copy (preferred) of your proposal to
cliftoncomputer.org, or a hard copy to:

 Dr. Chris Clifton

 II INTERNATIONAL CONTRASTIVE LINGUISTICS CONFERENCE (ICLCII)

Contrasts across/within languages

(25 HOURS)
SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, 25th to 27th OCTOBER 2001

Second Circular. April 2001
 PROGRAMME

The organisers of this symposium, which will consist of plenary 
lectures, papers, seminars and round tables, seek to offer an open forum 
in which recent studies and projects in the field of Contrastive 
Linguistics may be presented and debated. The Conference will be 
divided into three sections:

1.) Cross-cultural communication. We hope to cater for contributions 
relating to cultural intercommunication and to processes of 
sociocultural and linguistic exchange.

2.) The second section will be devoted to topics related to 
Contrastive Linguistic Description (Grammar, Lexico-Semantics, Phonetics 
and Phonology).

3.) Finally, in the third section, we shall analyse the processes of 
intercommunication through Discourse Analysis, Pragmatics, Rhetoric, 
Translation Studies, Languages for Specific Purposes, and Second 
Language Acquisition.

INVITED SPEAKERS
The following have agreed to give plenary lectures:

John Sinclair (University of Birmingham)

Cristopher Butler (University of Swansea)

Gregory Myers (University of Lancaster)

Pablo Dom=EDnguez (University of La Laguna)

Antonio Garnica Silva (University of Sevilla)

Felix Rodr=EDguez Gonz=E1lez (University of Alicante)

M=AA de los =C1ngeles G=F3mez Gonz=E1lez (University of Santiago)

Eduardo Varela Bravo (University of Vigo)

PAPERS, SEMINARS AND ROUND TABLES
We accept proposals for papers, seminars and round tables that conform 
to the guidelines given in the first circular 
(http://usc.es/ia303/benvidag.htm), until 15th MAY 2001. On 20th MAY we 
shall send confirmation of acceptance of the proposals presented

PROCEEDINGS
We plan to publish the proceedings of the conference. For this purpose, 
participants should let us have an original version of their work, 
before 30th December 2001 and in Word formats.

CONFERENCE FEES
The fee will be 10,000 pesetas (5,000 pesetas for students (copy of 
student i.d. required)). If it should become necessary, an extra 2,000 
pesetas may be charged for a copy of the Proceedings. This amount would 
not be required until the Proceedings are published.

(We are trying to secure the convalidation of the 25 hours, to count as 
one credit in the 1st or 2nd cycle of the philology degree courses.)

The maximum number of participants will be 200.
