Submission

We invite three types of submissions for AusDM 2014:

Research Track: Normal academic submissions reporting on research progress, with a paper length of between 8 and 12 pages in CRPIT style, as detailed below. For academic submissions we will use a double-blinded review process, i.e., paper submissions must NOT include authors names or affiliations or acknowledgments referring to funding bodies. Self-citing references should also be removed from the submitted papers for the double blind reviewing purpose. These information can be added on after the review.

Application Track: Submissions on specific data mining implementations and experiences in government and industry settings. Submissions in this category can be between 4 and 8 pages in CRPIT style, as detailed below. A committee made of mix of academic and industry representatives will review these submissions.

Industry Showcase: Submissions in this track are presentation only. In this track, government and industry participants can present the case studies and their experiences without getting worried about publication. We call for an extended abstract up to two pages to assess these submissions. A special committee made of industry representatives will review these submissions.

Paper submissions are required to follow the general format specified for papers in the CRPIT series by the Australian Computer Society.

LaTeX is the suggested and preferred typesetter.

Please note that submissions that are not following the CRPIT style and are not formatted for double blind review will be rejected without being reviewed by the program committee.

When preparing your paper, please follow these steps:

  1. Download the style files from the CRPIT authors Web page:

    http://crpit.com/AuthorsSubmitting.html.

  2. Set the author details to:

    Submitted for Blind Review

    For LaTeX, this corresponds to:

    \author{Submitted for Blind Review}

  3. Set the affiliation details to empty. For LaTeX, this corresponds to:

    \affiliation{}

  4. It is possible to keep necessary self-citing references, however, make sure you refer to your own prior work in the same way as you refer to any prior work by other authors. For example, rather than writing:

    "As we have shown earlier (Smith 2009), this method is...",

    you should re-phrase this to, for example:

    "As has been shown earlier in (Smith 2009), this method is..."

    Authors should, however, exclude any references to their own previous work (such as technical reports) that is not fundamental to understanding the submitted paper. Such references can be added for the final camera-ready paper after successful acceptance.

  5. When submitting the PDF version of your paper, do NOT use your name as file name, rather use a name that is descriptive of your paper. For example, rather than submitting a paper named:

    smith-ausdm14.pdf,

    use a file name such as:

    improved-approx-clustering.pdf.
