Hillol Kargupta is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, University of Maryland, Baltimore County. He received the PhD degree in computer science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1996. He is also a co-founder of Agnik LLC, a data analytics company for distributed, mobile, and embedded environments. His research interests include distributed and ubiquitous data mining, privacy issues in mining, data stream mining for resource-constrained devices, and peer-to-peer data mining. He is also interested in information, communication, and social interaction.

Dr. Kargupta won a US National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2001 for his research on ubiquitous and distributed data mining. He along with his coauthors received the best paper award at the 2003 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining for a paper on privacy-preserving data mining. He won the 2000 TRW Foundation Award and the 1997 Los Alamos Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement. His research has been funded by the US National Science Foundation, US Air Force, Department of Homeland Security, NASA, and various other organizations. He has published more than 80 peer-reviewed articles in journals, conferences, and books. He has co-edited two books: Advances in Distributed and Parallel Knowledge Discovery, AAAI/MIT Press, and Data Mining: Next Generation Challenges and Future Directions, AAAI/MIT Press. He is an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, Part B and Statistical Analysis and Data Mining Journal. He was the program-co-chair of the 2005 SIAM Data Mining Conference, Program vice-chair of 2005 PKDD Conference, Program vice-chair of 2005 IEEE International Data Mining Conference, Program Vice Chair for 2005 Euro-PAR Conference, Associate General Chair of the 2003 ACM SIGKDD Conference, and chair of the 2002 NSF Next Generation Data Mining Workshop among others. He regularly serves in the organizing and program committee of many data mining conferences. More information about him can be found at
