The 14th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (IEEE ICDM 2014) invites proposals for half- or full-day workshops to be held on December 14, 2014. Workshops are expected to focus on new research directions on, and novel applications of, data mining.

Each workshop will solicit papers for peer review. Furthermore, as in previous years, papers that are not accepted by the main conference will be automatically sent to the workshop selected by the authors when the papers were submitted to the main conference. By the unique ICDM tradition, all accepted workshop papers will be published in a formal proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.
