   + Data Mining Software
     We particularly encourage submissions of industrial applications and
     case studies from practitioners. These will not be evaluated using
     solely theoretical research criteria, but will take general interest
     and presentation stringer into consideration.

   + Alternative and additional examples of possible topics include:
     Data Mining for Business Intelligence; Emerging technologies in data
     mining; Computational performance issues in data mining; Data mining
     in usability; Advanced prediction modelling using data mining; Data
     mining and national security; Data mining tools; Data analysis;
     Data preparation techniques (selection, transformation, and
     preprocessing); Information extraction methodologies; Clustering
     algorithms used in data mining; Genetic algorithms and categorization
     techniques used in data mining; Data and information integration;
     Microarray design and analysis; Privacy-preserving data mining; Active
     data mining; Statistical methods used in data mining; Multidimensional
     data; Automatic data cleaning; Data visualization; Theory and practice
     (knowledge representation and discovery); Knowledge Discovery in
     Databases (KDD); Uncertainty management; Data reduction methods; Data
     engineering; Content mining; Indexing schemes; Information retrieval;
     Metadata use and management; Multidimensional query languages and
     query; Multimedia information systems; Search engine query processing;
     Pattern mining; Applications (examples: data mining in education,
     marketing, finance and financial services, business applications,
     medicine, bioinformatics, biological sciences, science and technology,
     industry and government, ...).

   We particularly encourage submissions of industrial applications and
   case studies from practitioners. To reflect the requirements of an
   application or project centric case study presentation, these will
   be subject to different review criteria. In particular, they will
   not be evaluated using predominantly theoretical research criteria
   of originality etc., but will take general interest and presentation
   stronger into consideration.


   Prospective authors are invited to submit their full paper in PDF format
   (about 5 to 7 pages, standard double column IEEE style, single spaced,
   10 pt font size, margins left/right/bottom/top 0.75" (19 mm), first page
   top margin 1" (25 mm), via the DMIN'08 online paper submission system
   by Feb. 25, 2008. The link to the online submission system will be
   available on the DMIN'08 website (

   The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to
   7 (IEEE style) pages.  Papers must not have been previously published
   or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.  The first page of
   the draft paper should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation,
   postal address, and email address of each author as well as the name
   of the conference the paper is being submitted to (ie, DMIN'08).
   The first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author
   and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the
   content of the paper.

   Papers will be evaluated for relevance to DMIN, originality,
   significance, information content, clarity, and soundness on an
   international level. Each aspect will be evaluated on a scale of
   1 (bad - reject) to 10 (excellent - accept) or 10%-100%. Papers
   need to achieve at least 50% overall score to be accepted without
   mandatory revisions. Each paper will be refereed by at least two
   researchers in the topical area, and all reviews are being considered
   for the acceptance/rejection decision. Each reviewer can indicate
   their expertise and therefore their relative confidence in a
   particular recommendation. The camera-ready papers will be reviewed
   by one person.

   To reflect upon feedback from last year we will extend the
   constructive feedback given within the review in aligning them with
   the IEEE guidelines for IJCNN and WCCI. In particular, we aim at a
   fair, objective and transparent review process. Therefore, we are
   publishing the review criteria to further support the reviews
   provided (see
