With a great pleasure, the Program Committee cordially invites original research and industrial application paper submission for the main technical track of the conference which will be held in Melbourne, Australia from May 15th to May 18th, 2018. Submission must be high-quality, original and previously unpublished research in the theory, practice, and application on all aspects of knowledge discovery, and data mining. Research papers reporting original real-world application problems and industrial papers reporting real-time mining applications and system development experience are also highly encouraged.

Submission deadline: October 31st, 2017

Notification of acceptance: January 28, 2018

Camera-ready: February 20, 2018

Conference date: May 15 – 18, 2018

 The Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (PAKDD) provides an internationally prestigious forum for researchers and industry practitioners to share their new ideas, original research results and practical development experiences from all KDD related areas, including data mining, data warehousing, machine learning, artificial intelligence, databases, statistics, knowledge engineering, visualization, decision-making systems and the emerging applications. The conference will also feature a high-quality and timely series of tutorials, and a wide range of workshops. Typically, the Program Committee will also select Best Paper Award, Best Student Paper Award and Best Application Award. The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer as a volume of the LNAI series and a small number of selected papers will be invited for publications in special issues of high-quality journals including Knowledge and Information Systems (KAIS) and International Journal of Data Science and Analytics.

Submission Policy

Paper submission must be in English and adhere to the double-blind review policy. 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. All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Detailed instructions are provided on the conference home page. Papers that do not comply with the Submission Guidelines will be rejected without review. Each submitted paper should include an abstract up to 200 words and be no longer than 12 single-spaced pages with 10pt font size. Authors are strongly encouraged to use Springer LNCS/LNAI manuscript submission guidelines for their initial submissions. All papers must be submitted electronically through the paper submission system in PDF format only.

The submitted papers must not be previously published anywhere and must not be under consideration by any other conference or journal during the PAKDD review process. Submitting a paper to the conference means that if the paper was accepted, at least one author will attend the conference to present the paper. For no-show authors, their papers will not be included in the proceedings. Before submitting your paper, please carefully read and agree with the PAKDD submission policy and no-show policy:
