become an annual conference starting from Year 2003. The fourth conference
will aim to provide a forum for researchers and engineers from academia and
industry to meet and to exchange ideas on the latest developments in data
engineering and learning, and to share their successes. IDEAL is an ideal
forum for revealing and developing the latest theoretical advances and
practical applications in intelligent data engineering and automated
