                    Final Call for Papers

 - Papers due: June 5, 2002
 - Submission website:
 - Electronic submissions are required in the form of PDF or
   postscript files.

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.

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
  - 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
  - Quality assessment and interestingness metrics of data mining
  - 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,
    bioinformatics, Web intelligence, and intelligent learning database 

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.

There are two different types of paper submission for IEEE ICDM '02:
   (1) main track submissions and 
   (2) industry track submissions.

For the main track submission, all submitted papers should be limited
to a maximum of 6,000 words (approximately 20 A4 pages), and will be
reviewed by the Program Committee 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. All main track paper
submissions will be handled electronically. Please use the Submission
Form (for main track) at the ICDM '02 webpage: 
to submit your paper (the due date is June 5, 2002).

For the industry track submission, please first check the following
conditions before your submission: 

   (a) At least one author of each industry track paper should be
       from a company (rather than a university), and the paper
       should be about industrial or other real-world applications of 
       data mining. 
   (b) The authors whose papers accepted for industry track would
       also be requested to show a demo of the system, if feasible. 

All papers submitted to the Industry Track will be reviewed by the
mini Industry Track Program Committee, and each accepted industry
track paper is allocated 2-4 pages in the conference proceedings by
the IEEE Computer Society Press. All industry track paper submissions
will be handled electronically. Please use the Submission Form (for
industry track) at the ICDM '02 webpage: 
to submit your paper (the due date is June 5, 2002).

A selected number of IEEE ICDM '02 accepted papers will be expanded
and revised for possible inclusion in the Knowledge and Information
Systems journal ( by Springer-Verlag.

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