November 29, 2001

---------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------

Held at IEEE ICDM-2001, The 2001 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining, San Jose, California, USA

Call for papers on the following topics was open until September 21, 2001 (expired).

Workshop Schedule with the list of accepted papers is available on-line. ----------------------------------------

Topics of interest

Addressing the above issues requires an awareness of the research achievements in various research and cross-disciplinary research efforts. In order to cover the essential areas of research we invite papers in:

Particular topics of interest for the workshop include but are not limited to:

Invited Talk

Taxonomy Exchange Format by Phyllis Reuther, Documentum

At Documentum, we see an increasing need for companies to use multiple advanced language technologies for classification, information extraction, semantic analysis, and text data mining. These applications, applied to business practices, often require an information architecture in part composed from general, industry-specific, and company-specific taxonomies. Currently, software vendors store taxonomies in proprietary formats that are not easily exchangeable, making metadata interchange between multiple language technolgy applications difficult. In this talk, I will discuss and outline the Taxonomy Exchange Format currently under development at Documentum.

Workshop schedule

The workshop consists of invited talks, presentation of refereed papers, and discussions. We hope that the program will stimulate future collaboration among researchers on text mining problems.



Attendance is not limited to the paper authors. We strongly encourage interested researchers from related areas to attend the Workshop. Important objectives of the Workshop are to facilitate interaction among reseachers and promote development of text mining as a research area. ----------------------------------------
