 ICDM '04: The Fourth IEEE International Conference on Data Mining
 Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society
 Brighton, UK
 November 1-4, 2004
 (Papers Due: June 1, 2004)

 qThe 2004 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (IEEE ICDM '04)
 provides a leading international forum for the dissemination of
 original research results in data mining, spanning applications,
 algorithms, software and systems. The conference draws researchers and
 application developers from a wide range of data mining related areas
 such as statistics, machine learning, pattern recognition, databases
 and data warehousing, data visualization, knowledge-based systems and
 high performance computing. By promoting high quality and novel
 research findings, and innovative solutions to challenging data mining
 problems, the conference seeks to continuously advance the state of
 the art in data mining. As an important part of the conference, the
 workshops program will focus on new research challenges and
 initiatives, and the tutorials program will cover emerging data mining
 technologies and the latest developments in data mining.
 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 of data mining
* Data mining and machine learning algorithms and methods in
traditional areas (such as classification, regression, clustering,
probabilistic modeling, and association analysis), and in new areas
* Mining text and semi-structured data, and mining temporal, spatial
and multimedia data
* Mining data streams
* Pattern recognition and trend analysis
* Collaborative filtering/personalization
* Data and knowledge representation for data mining
* Query languages and user interfaces for mining
* Complexity, efficiency, and scalability issues in data mining
* Data pre-processing, data reduction, feature selection and feature
* Post-processing of data mining results
* 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
* Integration of data warehousing, OLAP and data mining
* Human-machine interaction and visual data mining
* High performance and parallel/distributed data mining
* Quality assessment and interestingness metrics of data mining
* Security, privacy and social impact of data mining
* Data mining applications in bioinformatics, electronic commerce,
Web, intrusion detection, finance, marketing, healthcare,
telecommunications and other fields
Conference Publications and ICDM Best Paper Awards

 High quality papers in all data mining areas are solicited. Original
 papers exploring new directions will receive especially careful and
 supportive reviews. Papers that have already been accepted or are
 currently under review at other conferences or journals will not be
 considered for publication at ICDM '04.
 Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 18 A4 pages, and
 will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical
 quality, relevance to data mining, originality, significance, and
 clarity. All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Please
 use the Submission Form on the ICDM '04 website to submit your
 paper. Formatting instructions are given on the website. Accepted
 papers will be published in the conference proceedings by the IEEE
 Computer Society Press.
 A selected number of IEEE ICDM '04 accepted papers will be invited for
 possible inclusion, in an expanded and revised form, in the Knowledge
 and Information Systems journal (
 published by Springer-Verlag.
 IEEE ICDM Best Paper Awards will be conferred at the conference on the
 authors of (1) the best research paper and (2) the best application
 paper. Application-oriented submissions will be considered for the
 best application paper award.
