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.

With the support of both world-renowned experts and new researchers
from the international data mining community, ICDM '02 has received an
overwhelming response compared to any other data mining related
conference this year: 369 paper submissions (22 industry track)
from 36 countries and regions, 9 workshop proposals, and 39 tutorial proposals.
