                            Call for Papers
                            ***************

The  2001  IEEE International Conference  on  Data  Mining  (ICDM '01)
provides a 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
    transformation
  - 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
    discovery
  - Quality assessment and interestingness metrics of data mining
    results
  - 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,
    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.  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 ICDM '01 accepted papers  will be  expanded and revised  for
possible  inclusion  in  the Knowledge and Information Systems journal
(http://kais.mines.edu/~kais/) by Springer-Verlag.

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