Opportunity to Present - ACM Data Mining Un-Conference October 13, 2012

YOU can present, or you can ask someone else to present, someone that you have seen, or that has expertise to share - got it?
At this un-Conference, we have a short session at the beginning where YOU or any Presenter, stands up to give a short description of their presentation.

After listening to the presentation ideas, attendees decide which sessions they want to attend, and a session schedule is then generated. The Data Mining Camp has a keynote from Andrew NG at 9:45. To propose a session, we recommend you be on-site no later than 11:15 AM; better still come at the start for the keynote and morning networking.

The types of sessions you could propose are Lightning Talks, Panels, and 50-minute Full Sessions. Choose whichever you feel is best for your content. Some guidelines are:

· A Lightning Talk is 5-7 minutes long. That is enough time for a few quick slides to cover your material. It is a great way to easily connect with people having similar interests.

· Panel Sessions – Propose a panel and we’ll help you find other panel members. Or call some colleagues and competitors and show up with a complete ready-to-go panel. Panels are 50 minute slots.

· 50 minute Full Sessions are the most in-depth opportunity to present your content. You could do a long talk (30-40 minutes, with just a little Q&A), a short talk (10-15 minutes, with the balance of the time for discussion or for other related short talks), or you could do a tutorial (a model successfully used by software vendors at previous Data Mining Camps.)
