Data Mining (DM)

Session at the
15th International Conference on
Applications of Declarative Programming
and Knowledge Management (INAdP 2004)
March 4-6, 2004, Berlin, Germany



Data mining comprises the design and analysis of efficient algorithms for the extraction of patterns from large data sets. This field is very active and is rapidly maturing. Data mining has had an impact on scientific discovery, as well as in various industrial and commercial domains. Examples include bioinformatics, security, and electronic commerce. The Data Mining session at INAdP 2004 (Knowledge Management track) will focus on data mining techniques, tools, and applications that involve a declarative programming or rule-based formalism, for example association rule mining and rule induction machine learning techniques. Selected papers from the session will be eligible for possible inclusion in a post-conference volume in the Springer LNAI series, after undergoing a second round of reviews.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Rule mining techniques

  • association rules
  • inductive logic programming
  • probabilistic rule-based systems
  • rule induction
  • temporal and sequential data
  • bioinformatics and scientific discovery
  • applications in industry
  • descriptions of deployed systems
  • performance evaluation
  • visualization of rule-based systems
  • comparison of rule-based and other approaches
