                          Call for Papers

    The 2002 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (IEEE ICDM '02)
    provides a leading international 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,
        bioinformatics, 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.

    There are two different types of paper submission for IEEE ICDM '02:
    (1) main track submissions and (2) industry track submissions.

    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 IEEE ICDM '02
    accepted papers will be expanded and revised for possible inclusion in
    the Knowledge and Information Systems journal
    ( by Springer-Verlag.

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