The ACM KDD-2012 organizing committee solicits proposals for workshops
to be held in conjunction with the main conference. Each workshop will
take place on August 12, 2012 (tentatively) and will either be a
full-day or a half-day workshop. The purpose of a workshop is to provide
an excellent opportunity for participants from academia, industry,
government and other related parties to present and discuss novel ideas
on current and emerging topics relevant to knowledge discovery and data
