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.

With the support of both world-renowned experts and new researchers from the international data mining community, ICDM '02 has received an overwhelming response compared to any other data mining related conference this year: 369 paper submissions (22 industry track) from 36 countries and regions, 9 workshop proposals, and 39 tutorial proposals.

Invited Speakers:

  • Jaime Carbonell, Carnegie Mellon University, USA
  • Satoru Miyano, University of Tokyo, Japan
  • Hiroshi Motoda, Osaka University, Japan
  • Stephen Muggleton, Imperial College, UK
  • Steve Smale, (a fields medallist) University of California at Berkeley, USA
  • Jeffrey D. Ullman, Stanford University, USA
ICDM '02 Tutorials (December 9, 2002):

  • Powerful Database Primitives to Support High Performance Data Mining by Christian Bohm (University for Health Informatics and Tech., Austria)
  • Relational Data Mining by Saso Dzeroski (Jozef Stefan Institute, Slovenia)
  • Avoiding Common Causes of Data Mining Project Failure by Monte F. Hancock, Jr. (CSI Corporation, USA)
  • An Introduction to Knowledge Discovery in Medical Databases by John H. Holmes (University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, USA)
  • Data Mining in Bioinformatics by Gautam Singh (Oakland University, USA)
  • Rough Set Data Analysis - A road to non-invasive knowledge discovery by Ivo Duntsch (Brock University, Canada) and Gunther Gediga (Institut fur Evaluation und Marktanalysen, Germany)
ICDM '02 Workshops (December 9, 2002):

Paper Presentations (December 10 - 12, 2002): Out of 369 paper submissions, the IEEE ICDM '02 Program Committee accepted 72 papers for regular presentation, an additional 41 papers for short presentation and 8 papers for industry track presentation. ICDM '02 also has a demos/posters session and a panel on Biomedical Data Mining.

The conference will organize a tour during the conference to Ikaho hot spring resort area, one of the most famous hot springs areas in Japan, and have a banquet and best papers award ceremony at Kogure Hotel in Ikaho, as well as a reception at the Maebashi TERRSA.
