Instructions for preparing the camera-ready version of the accepted papers

The length of each paper should not exceed *5* pages in the IEEE CS format (which will also be distributed by the IEEE Computer Society Press). You may purchase *1* extra page at a cost of US$100 for each extra page (paid at time of registration); your paper cannot exceed 5 pages. Please use the comments of the reviewers in deciding what to emphasize while condensing your paper. Your submission is required to follow all the instructions given in the author kit you will receive from the IEEE Computer Society Press.

To include your paper in the program as well as in the proceedings, at least one author of your paper must plan to attend the conference and pay the regular registration fee (student registration does not count; at least one author must pay regular registration.) Please make sure to register by **September 29, 2006** to have your paper included. If you have had multiple papers accepted, you do not need to register twice; however, there is an extra paper fee to help defray the cost of printing. See the registration form for details; it will be available in mid-September at: http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/~wii06/icdm/?index=registration

We will have an exciting technical program and social program. In addition to the ICDM technical paper presentations, we are planning an ICDM-WI-IAT joint keynote speaker, 2 ICDM invited speakers (and 4 WI-IAT invited speakers), one panel, 4 ICDM tutorials (and 4 WI-IAT tutorials), 12 ICDM workshops (and 14 WI-IAT workshops), one ICDM-WI-IAT industry/demo session, as well as the reception, and a banquet on the boats. A regular registration will cover all the events during conference dates, including both ICDM and WI-IAT sessions.

The conference will take place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibit Center. The hotel reservation information will be available shortly at the ICDM 2006 homepage.

You should plan to allow enough time to enjoy the city Hong Kong. You can get more information about the conference hotel and local information from the conference homepage: http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/~wii06/icdm/
