2005 Conference on Data Mining

Each year, the IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM) provides an international forum for the sharing of original research results and innovative, practical development experiences. Data mining-related areas such as machine learning, automated scientific discovery, data visualization, and knowledge-based systems are all represented at the conference.

At ICDM 2005, a workshops program will focus on new research challenges and initiatives, and a tutorial program will cover emerging data mining technologies.

ICDM takes place in New Orleans from 27-30 November. Advance registration is $445 for IEEE members and $230 for IEEE student members. To learn more about ICDM 2005, visit

SC 05 High-Performance Computing Conference

SC 05, the International Conference for High-Performance Computing, Networking, and Storage, will take place 12-18 November in Seattle.

This year's conference theme, "Gateway to Discovery," encourages participants to focus on ways that high-performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis can lead to advances in research, education, and commerce.

New at SC 05 is the HPC Analytics initiative, which highlights powerful data analysis applications and visualization tools that can be used to solve complex real-world problems. StorCloud, a collaborative, high-bandwidth, heterogeneous storage project, returns this year. In the StorCloud Challenge, applications that demand fast transfer rates and/or use multiple file systems in unusual ways compete for prizes.

For further information on SC|05, visit the conference Web site at Online registration opens 1 August.
