8th ACM SIGMOD Workshop on Research Issues in Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery

13th June 2003, San Diego, California
in conjunction with
ACM SIGMOD International Conference on Management of Data, 2003
sponsored by

Workshop Program

The workshop will foster an informal atmosphere, where participants can freely interact through short presentations and open discussions on their ongoing work as well as discussion on current/future trends in data mining. Questions can be asked freely during any time, and discussion slots have been set aside in the morning and afternoon sessions. These slots are meant to focus on critical evaluation of current approaches and open problems. All speakers and participants are encouraged to think about these issues prior to the workshop and to take active part in the ensuing discussions.

You can download the entire collection of papers in a single file from here: http://www.cs.rpi.edu/tr/03-05.tar.gz or by clicking on the individual papers below.

8:30-8:35 Opening Remarks

8:35-9:10 Invited Talk Analyzing Massive Data Streams: Past, Present, and Future: Minos Garofalakis, Bells Labs

    Abstract: Continuous data streams arise naturally, for example, in the installations of large telecom and Internet service providers where detailed usage information (Call-Detail-Records, SNMP/RMON packet-flow data, etc.) from different parts of the underlying network needs to be continuously collected and analyzed for interesting trends. Such environments raise a critical need for effective stream-processing algorithms that can provide (typically, approximate) answers to data-analysis queries while utilizing only small space (to maintain concise stream synopses) and small processing time per stream item. In this talk, I will discuss the basic pseudo-random sketching mechanism for building stream synopses and our ongoing work that exploits sketch synopses to build an approximate SQL (multi) query processor. I will also describe our recent results on extending sketching to handle more complex forms of queries and streaming data (e.g., similarity joins over streams of XML trees), and try to identify some challenging open problems in the data-streaming area.
