 Call for Papers

The 2001 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM '01)
provides a forum for the sharing of original research results and
practical development experiences among researchers and application
developers from different data mining related areas such as machine
learning, automated scientific discovery, statistics, pattern
recognition, knowledge acquisition, soft computing, databases and data
warehousing, data visualization, and knowledge-based systems. The
conference seeks solutions to challenging problems facing the
development of data mining systems, and shapes future directions of
research by promoting high quality, novel and daring research
findings. As an important part of the conference, the workshops
program will focus on new research challenges and initiatives.

Topics of Interest

Topics related to the design, analysis and implementation of data
mining theory, systems and applications are of interest. These
include, but are not limited to the following areas:

 - Foundations and principles of data mining 
 - Data mining algorithms and methods in traditional areas (such as
 classification, clustering, probabilistic modeling, and
 association analysis), and in new areas
 - Data and knowledge representation for data mining 
 - Modeling of structured, textual, temporal, spatial, multimedia and
 Web data to support data mining
 - Complexity, efficiency, and scalability issues in data mining
 - Data pre-processing, data reduction, feature selection and feature
 - Statistics and probability in large-scale data mining
 - Soft computing (including neural networks, fuzzy logic,
 evolutionary computation, and rough sets) and uncertainty
 management for data mining
 - Integration of data warehousing, OLAP and data mining 
 - Man-machine interaction in data mining and visual data mining 
 - Artificial intelligence contributions to data mining 
 - High performance and distributed data mining 
 - Machine learning, pattern recognition and automated scientific
 - Quality assessment and interestingness metrics of data mining
 - Process centric data mining and models of data mining process 
 - Security and social impact of data mining 
 - Emerging data mining applications, such as electronic commerce,
 Web mining and intelligent learning database systems

Conference Publications and ICDM Best Paper Awards

High quality papers in all data mining areas are solicited. Papers
exploring new directions will receive a careful and supportive
review. All submitted papers should be limited to a maximum of 6,000
words (approximately 20 A4 pages), and will be reviewed on the basis
of technical quality, relevance to data mining, originality,
significance, and clarity. Accepted papers will be published in the
conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press. A selected
number of ICDM '01 accepted papers will be expanded and revised for
possible inclusion in the Knowledge and Information Systems journal
( by Springer-Verlag.

ICDM Best Paper Awards will be conferred on the authors of the best
papers at the conference.
