ACM Transactions on Knowledge Discovery from Data (TKDD)
Call For Papers
The ACM Transactions on Knowledge Discovery from Data (TKDD) publishes original archival papers in the area of knowledge discovery from data and closely related disciplines.  The majority of the papers that appear in TKDD is expected to address the logical and technical foundation of knowledge discovery and data mining.

The international Editorial Board is composed of recognized experts in the various subareas of this field, all with a commitment to maintain TKDD as the premier publication in this active field.  Papers should be submitted electronically to ACM TKDD manuscript center.  The Editorial Board maintains contact with ACM's Special Interest Group on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (SIGKDD), as well as with other societies, to encourage submittal of advanced and original papers.  When appropriate, concise results may be submitted as technical notes; technical comments on earlier publications are welcome as well.

The journal appears in the ACM Digital Library and is thus available to the many individual and institutional DL subscribers.  TKDD will be also included in the SIGKDD Anthology and SIGKDD Digital Symposium Collection CDROM publications.  These disparate media (print, web, CDROM, DVDROM), widely distributed, ensure that TKDD articles are easily available to knowledge discovery and data mining researchers.

The existence of TKDD has helped to define the field of knowledge discovery and data mining research.  It encompasses the development, formalization, and validation of abstractions and models to describe data mining applications and the design and implementation methods for knowledge discovery and automated analysis of large amount of data.

TKDD welcomes papers on a full range of research in the knowledge discovery and analysis of diverse forms of data.   Such subjects include: scalable and effective algorithms for data mining and data warehousing, mining data streams, mining multi-media data, mining high-dimensional data, mining text, Web, and semi-structured data, mining spatial and temporal data, data mining for community generation, social network analysis, and graph structured data, security and privacy issues in data mining, visual, interactive and online data mining, pre-processing and post-processing for data mining, robust and scalable statistical methods, data mining languages, foundations of data mining, KDD framework and process, and novel applications and infrastructures exploiting data mining technology.  TKDD encourages papers that explore the above subjects in the context of large distributed networks of computers, parallel or multiprocessing computers, or new data devices.  TKDD also encourages papers that describe emerging data mining applications that cannot be satisfied by the current data mining technology.

TKDD welcomes papers that both lay theoretical foundations for data mining and those that provide new insights into the design and implementation of large-scale data mining systems and tools, data mining interface tools, and data mining tools that integrate with the overall information processing infrastructure.  TKDD also accepts papers that describe user and data mining developer and administration experiences and issues in large-scale real-world data mining applications.  The emphasis on integration of theory and practice is an attempt to encourage authors of theory papers to consider applicability and/or implementability of the theoretical results, while encouraging authors of systems papers to reflect on the theoretical results that may have been used in building the systems and/or to offer suggestions on issues that may require theoretical treatment.

TKDD also solicits focused surveys on topics relevant to TKDD.  These should be deep and will sometimes be quite narrow, but should make a contribution to our understanding of an important area or subarea of databases.  More general surveys that are intended for a broad-based Computer Science audience or surveys that may influence other areas of computing research should continue to go to ACM Computing Surveys.  Brief surveys on recent developments in data mining research are more appropriate for ACM SIGKDD Explorations. TKDD surveys should be educational to the database audience by presenting a relatively well-established body of database research.
