To see the DBLP list of accepted papers in the last offering of DMIN, go to:



The main web site of DMIN'10 can be found at:



The web site of WORLDCOMP'10 can be found at:



Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them to the DMIN'10 online paper collection and review system. Submissions must be uploaded by March 21, 2010 and they must be in pdf format. Details (submission system, typesetting formats etc.) can be found on the DMIN'10 web site at: http://www.dmin-2010.com/submission.htm


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 for each author. 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.


Full papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by at least two experts in the field who are independent of the conference program committee. The referees' evaluations will then be reviewed by one member of the program committee who will recommend a decision to the chair of the track that the paper has been submitted to. The chair will make the final decision. Lastly, the final papers will be reviewed by one member of the program committee. 


All accepted papers will be published in the respective conference proceedings (in both, printed book form as well as online). The proceedings will be indexed in Inspec/IET/The Institute for Engineering and Technology, DBLP/Computer Science Bibliography, and others.) The printed proceedings will be available for distribution on site at the conference.


In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected authors will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication in a number of research books being proposed/contracted with various publishers (such as, Springer, Elsevier, IOS, ...) - these books would be composed after the conference. Also, many chairs of sessions and workshops will be forming journal special issues to be published after the conference. For DMIN'10, it is planned to publish extended paper s in a Special Issue in Annals of Information Systems focused on Web Mining.




DMIN'10 Conference is being held jointly (same location and dates) with a number of other research conferences (WORLDCOMP). WORLDCOMP is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate to have 2,000 or more attendees from over 85 countries participating at WORLDCOMP Congress. A number of individual research tracks of the Congress have been held for many years; for example, PDPTA has been held annually since 1995 (PDPTA'10 is the 16th annual conference); ERSA has been held annually since 2001 (ERSA'10 is the 10th annual conference); ICAI has been held annually since 1999 (ICAI'10 is the 12th annual conference); DMIN has been held annually since 2003 (DMIN'10 is the 8th annual conference; originally it was offered as part of IKE). Other tracks of WORLDCOMP Congress have similar records.


The motivation behind this federated congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research conferences into a coordinated research meeting held in a common place at a common time. The main goal is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas in a number of research areas that interact. The model used to form DMIN facilitates communication among researchers from all over the world in different fields of computer science, computer engineering, applied computing, information science, and computational biology. Both inward research (core areas) and outward research (multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary, and applications) will be covered during the conference. DMIN makes concerted effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities (such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies, and research centers/labs) from all over the world. 


DMIN'10 will be composed of research presentations, keynote lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions, and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote/tutorial/panel speakers have included (as part of the federated event): Prof. David A. Patterson (pioneer/computer architecture, U. of California, Berkeley), Dr. K. Eric Drexler (known as Father of Nanotechnology), Prof. John H. Holland (known as Father of Genetic Algorithms; U. of Michigan), Prof. Ian Foster (known as Fa ther of Grid Computing; U. of Chicago & ANL), Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (pioneer/VR, U. of California, Berkeley), Prof. Barry    Vercoe (Founding member of MIT Media Lab, MIT), Dr. Jim Gettys (known as X-man, developer of X Window System, xhost; OLPC), Prof. John Koza (known as Father of Genetic Programming, Stanford U.), Prof. Brian D. Athey (NIH Program Director, U. of Michigan), Prof. Viktor K. Prasanna (pioneer, U. of Southern California), Dr. Jose L. Munoz (NSF Program Director and Consultant), Prof. Jun Liu (Broad Inst itute of MIT & Harvard U.), Anousheh Ansari (CEO, Prodea Systems & first female private space explorer), and many other distinguished speakers.  Tutorial speakers for data mining oriented tutorials have included Prof. Eamonn Keogh (U. of California,Riverside), Ashu M.G. Solo (Principal of Maverick Technologies America Inc.), Mikhail Golovnya (Senior Scientist, Salford Systems), Prof. Nitesh V. Chawla (U. of Notre Dame, USA), Dr. Peter Geczy (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan), Prof. Asim Roy (Arizona State University), and Dr. Dan Steinberg (CEO of Salford Systems).
