- KDD Framework and Process
- Knowledge Representation and Acquisition in KDD
- Knowledge Reuse and Role of Domain Knowledge
- Knowledge Acquisition in Software Re-Engineering and Software
Information Systems
- Induction of Rules and Decision Trees
- Management Issues in KDD
- Machine Learning, Statistical and Visualization Aspects of KDD
(including Neural Networks and Inductive Logic Programming)
- Mining in-the-large vs Mining in-the-small
- Noise Handling
- Security and Privacy Issues in KDD
- Successful/Innovative KDD Applications in Science, Government,
Business and Industry.

Both research and applications papers are solicited. All submitted
papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance
to KDD, significance, and clarity. Accepted papers will be published
in the conference proceedings by an international publisher. A
selected number of the accepted papers will be expanded and revised
for inclusion in a special issue of an international journal.
