New Journal Announcement:

Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
an international journal


Published by Kluwer Academic Publishers

C a l l f o r P a p e r s

Advances in data gathering, storage, and distribution technologies have far
outpaced computational advances in techniques for analyzing and understanding
data. This created an urgent need for a new generation of tools and
techniques for automated Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery in Databases
(KDD). KDD is a broad area that integrates methods from several fields
including statistics, databases, AI, machine learning, pattern recognition,
machine discovery, uncertainty modeling, data visualization, high performance
computing, management information systems (MIS), and knowledge-based systems.

KDD refers to a multi-step process that can be highly interactive and
iterative. It includes data selection/sampling, preprocessing and
transformation for subsequent steps. Data mining algorithms are then used
to discover patterns, clusters and models from data. These patterns and
hypotheses are then rendered in operational forms that are easy for people
to visualize and understand. Data mining is a step in the overall KDD
process. However, most published work has focused solely on
(semi-)automated data mining methods. By including data mining explicitly
in the name of the journal, we hope to emphasize its role, and build bridges
to communities working solely on data mining.

Our goal is to make Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery a flagship journal
publication in the KDD area, providing a unified forum for the KDD research
community, whose publications are currently scattered among many different
journals. The journal will publish state-of-the-art papers in both the
research and practice of KDD, surveys of important techniques from related
fields, and application papers of general interest. In addition, there will
be a pragmatic section including short application reports (1-3 pages), book
and system reviews, and relevant product announcements.
