The Third SIAM International Conference on Data Mining, which was held in 
San Francisco, CA, was a great success. We are very pleased to present the 
on-line proceedings at the conference Web site:

The field of Data Mining has seen a tremendous increase of interest in
recent months. Applications of Data Mining are mentioned often in the
daily press, especially in the fields of security and forensics. Thus,
these are exciting times for researchers and practitioners in the area. We
hope that the research captured by these proceedings helps in advancing
this important field.

The next conference will be held in Orlando, FL, April 22-24, 2004.
This conference will provide a forum for the presentation of recent 
results in data mining, including applications, algorithms, software, 
and systems. There will be peer reviewed, contributed papers as well as 
invited talks and tutorials. Best paper awards will be given in different 
categories. Proceedings of the conference will be available both online 
at the SIAM Web site and in hard copy form. In addition, several workshops 
on topics of current interest will be held on the final day of the 

Hope to see you in Orlando next year.
