SIAM International Conference on Data  Mining, April 11-13, 2002, Hyatt Regency, Crystal City at Ronald Reagan National Airport, Arlington, VA

Co-Sponsored by AHPCRC and University of Illinois at Chicago

Advances in information technology and data collection methods have led to the availability of large data sets in commercial enterprises and in a wide variety of scientific and engineering disciplines. We have an unprecedented opportunity to analyze this data and extract intelligent and useful information. The field of data mining draws upon extensive work in areas such as; statistics, machine learning, pattern recognition, databases, and high performance computing to discover interesting and previously unknown information in datasets.

This conference will provide a forum for the presentation of recent results in data mining, including; applications, algorithms, software, and systems. There will be peer reviewed, contributed papers as well as invited talks and tutorials. Proceedings of the conference will be available both online at the SIAM Web site and in hard copy form. In addition, several workshops on topics of current interest will be held on the final day of the conference.
