Welcome to the social networking site for ACM SIGKDD-2010 Conference . Use this network to find and connect with people at the conference.


What did you like about this online service? What would you improve? What feature you would add? Please leave a comment on this online service that will help us for next year's conference. Also, how do you recommend that we motivate attendees and presenters to "discuss" more on the site?

Tanya Berger-Wolf: Agree with Lei. In general, it would be good to use the social networking aspects of the service more: keep and use the network from year to year (even augment fro LinkedIn if the user agrees), suggest talks and contacts, use RFIDs or other tags duri... [read more]
Suresh Venkatasubramanian: I like the idea of RFID tags. There's even a simpler version of this though: on each attendee's badge, print a QR code that smartphones can read, that would link the attendee to their crowdvine profile. Google already does this for their recruiter bu... [read more]
Lei Tang: Another feature I found missing is the notification of new comments for people involved in the same thread. I believe a notification would keep people interested in the thread get updated and hopefully keep the discussion alive.

Toward the end of the conference, the audience stopped asking questions a... [read more]

Tanya Berger-Wolf: Agree with Ronny. In general, I think session chairs should enforce the time limits better. This allows for better discussions and for people to switch sessions if they wish.

Just curious, where can we find photos taken at KDD? I think it would be great for those presenters. I checked photos at this social networking site, but it seems none of them is about KDD'10.

Is it possible to obtain a copy/video/notes on Konrad Feldman's (from Quantcast) talk?

Gabor Melli: All keynotes and most talks will be made available on videolectures.com as they were for KDD'09 http://videolectures.net/kdd09_paris/ It will likely take several weeks before they are published.
