    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.
