CFP: Advanced Data Mining and Applications ADMA 2007


The Third International Conference on Advanced Data Mining and Applications
Harbin, China, 6-8 Aug., 2007

Harbin(Ha'erbin), also known as "Bingcheng", "East Paris", is the capital of Heilongjaing Province, one of the historical and cultural cities in China, a city full of exotic atmosphere, a city of glittering and translucence.

The 1st International Conference on Advanced Data Mining and Applications (ADMA 2005) was successfully held in Wuhan, China, and the proceedings were published by Springer in LNAI 3584. The 2nd International Conference on Advanced Data Mining and Applications (ADMA 2006) is being held in XiAn, China, and the proceedings are also published by Springer in LNAI 4093.

A growing attention has been paid to the study, development and application of data mining. As a result there is an urgent need for sophisticated techniques and tools that can handle new fields of data mining, e.g. spatial data mining in the context of spatial-temporal characteristics, streaming data mining, and biomedical data mining. The 3rd International Conference on Advanced Data Mining and Applications (ADMA2007) aims at bringing together international experts on data mining, and provides a leading international forum for the dissemination of original research results in data mining, spanning applications, algorithms, software and systems, in different applied disciplines with potential in data mining. 

We solicit papers in English not concurrently submitted to other venues and with unpublished contributions in the data mining fields. The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer Verlag in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS). 

Due to technical issues delaying the availability of the on-line submission system as well as extension requests by many authors, we are happy to tell you that the deadline for the manuscript submission has been extended to March 5, 2007.

Important Dates
Paper Submission Deadline (extended): March 5, 2007
