CFP: Advanced Data Mining and Applications ADMA 2009

ADMA 2009 Call For Papers

The Fifth International Conference on Advanced Data Mining and
Applications (ADMA 2009)

August 17-19, 2009, Beijing, China    Contact:

A growing attention has been directed to the study, development and
application of data mining. As a result there is an urgent need for
sophisticated techniques and tools that can be utilized to explore new
fields of data mining, e.g. spatial data mining in the context of
spatial-temporal characteristics, streaming data mining, biomedical
data mining, etc. Our knowledge on data mining should also be expanded
to new applications. The Fifth International Conference on Advanced
Data Mining and Applications (ADMA2009) aims at bringing together the
experts on data mining from around the world, and providing a leading
international forum for the dissemination of original research
findings in data mining, spanning applications, algorithms, software
and systems, as well as different applied disciplines with potential
in data mining.

The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer in its
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series, and indexed by EI.

We invite authors to submit papers on any topics of advanced data
mining and applications, including but not limited to:

- Advanced Data Mining Topics

1.  Grand challenges of data mining
2.  Parallel and distributed data mining algorithms
3.  Mining on data streams
4.  Graph and subgraph mining
5.  Spatial data mining
6.  Text, video, multimedia data mining
7.  Web mining
8.  High performance data mining algorithms
9.  Correlation mining
10. Bench marking and evaluations
11. Interactive data mining
12. Data-mining-ready structures and pre-processing
13. Data mining visualization
14. Information hiding in data mining
15. Security and privacy issues
16. Competitive analysis of mining algorithms

- Data Mining Applications (applied data mining in following listed areas)

1.  Database administration, indexing, performance tuning
2.  Grid computing
3.  DNA Sequencing, Bioinformatics, Genomics, and biometrics
4.  Image interpretations
5.  E-commerce and Web services
6.  Medical informatics
7.  Disaster prediction
8.  Remote monitoring
9.  Financial market analysis
10. Online filtering
11. Application of Data Mining in Education

Paper submission

Paper submission will be electronic through the ADMA2009 website. The
paper should be in English and contain unpublished contributions to
the data mining fields. The paper should not exceed 14 pages in LNCS
(Lecture Notes in Computer Science) format.

Important Dates

  Full paper submission due:   April 13, 2009
  Acceptance notification:     May 25, 2009
  Early registration deadline: Jun 3, 2009
  Final Camera-ready:          Jun 3, 2009
