The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at PES Institute of Technology is conducting UDM-India, the First National Conference on Unstructured Data Management at the PESIT campus in Bangalore on 22-24 June, 2006.

Unstructured Data Management (UDM) is rapidly developing into one of the key areas of research and development in information technology today. The phenomenal growth of the Internet over the last decade as well as widespread automation of business processes in large organizations have created a critical void in managing vast amounts of on-line information that is available only in the form of unstructured or semi-structured content such as text, messages, images, audio and video. UDM is an umbrella term that covers the entire spectrum of problems and technologies in this area.

The purpose of this first conference on UDM is to bring together academic researchers and corporate R&D teams working in related areas to create a community and enable effective exchange of ideas, problems, and solutions. It is also a platform for PhD students working in this area to present their work in progress to get useful feedback from experts in the community.

While there are already conferences in particular areas of UDM such as natural language processing or data mining, this is the first conference that promises to cover the entire range of problems in UDM so that participants can get a complete picture of the challenges and recent advancements in UDM.

The conference has been intentionally named the First National Conference. It is intended to be repeated on an annual basis to nurture a dynamic community of researchers in UDM.

A unique aspect of UDM-India will be an inverted academic-industry interaction session wherein, unlike the typical conference where industry participants listen to mostly academic presentations, a group of carefully chosen practitioners from the industry will present challenging problems to which a distinguished panel of academic experts will respond to open a debate on each topic.

Areas of interest:

1. Text processing and management
2. XML languages and technologies
3. Semantic web
4. Knowledge representation and ontologies
5. Knowledge management
6. Data and text mining
7. Image processing
8. Pattern recognition
9. Computer vision
10. Internet-enabled applications

and innovative applications of the above.

Authors are invited to submit original papers in the above areas that are not submitted or published elsewhere. Papers will be subjected to a blind review process and selected based on the recommendation and consensus of chosen reviewers. A second set of papers may be selected for the poster presentation session.

Papers may be 6-10 pages long preferably in IEEE-Computer Society Format: http://www.computer.org/cspress/instruct.htm. Please send papers in PDF or Microsoft Word format by electronic mail to cs.udm@pes.edu. Authors may first choose to submit a short abstract (100-300 words) to get preliminary feedback from the review committee on the suitability of the topic for the conference.
