Pericles A. Mitkas, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

In the last decade, agents and data mining have emerged as two of the most vigorous areas in information technology. The nature and complementarity of both areas foreshows an emerging trendthe increasing interaction and integration between agents and data mining. A symbiotic relationship could significantly strengthen each sides progress and trigger new R&D challenges and prospects toward the advancement of next-generation intelligent technologies and systems as well as the enrichment of integrated intelligence and other emergent aspects.
This special issue aspires to report pioneering action on this critical topic and aims to encourage the interaction between agents and data mining toward mutual enhancement and superintelligent techniques and synergism. It will bring together researchers and industry practitioners from both areas to share R&D results and discuss existing and emerging theoretical and applied problems in the interaction and evolution of agents and data mining.

Topic areas include (but arent limited to):
* challenges and prospects of agents and data mining interaction,
* agent-enriched knowledge discovery and data mining,
* data-mining-driven agent intelligence enhancement,
* agent-mining symbiosis performance evaluation, and
* emerging intelligent applications and systems.
