Dear Researchers & Practitioners!

You are invited to participate in the 2007 International Conference on Data Mining!

DMIN'07 is an international conference held simultaneously with 2
4 other joint conferences as part of WORLDCOMP'07, The 2007 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing. WORLDCOMP'07 is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing.

The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research conferences, workshops, and symposiums 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 these annual conferences facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. Both inward research (core areas of computer science and engineering) and outward research (multi-disciplinary, inter- disciplinary, and applications) will be covered during the conferences.

Each of the joint conferences in WORLDCOMP'07 is a premier conference for presenting advances in their respective fields (for the complete list of joint conferences please see The last Joint Conferences (WORLDCOMP'06) attracted over 1,700 researchers and practitioners from 78 countries. It is anticipated that The WORLDCOMP'07 will attract about 2000 participants. The WORLDCOMP'07 is composed of 2
5 major conferences - attendees will have full access to all 25 conferences' sessions, tracks, and tutorials. Each event is the premier conference for presentation of advances in their respective subjects. All conferences will be held simultaneously (same location and dates: June 25-28, 2007, L.a.s  V.e.g.a.s, USA).

You are invited to submit a draft paper via our website All accepted papers will be published in the respective conference proceedings. The names of technical session/workshop organizers/chairs will appear on the cover of the proceedings/books as Associate Editors.
All submitted papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of the journal 'Annals of Information Systems' by Springer.

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 stronger into consideration.

We welcome all contributions through theoretical research papers and industrial reports and case studies on applications in form of regular research papers of 7 pages IEEE style. In addition, we welcome student research proposals as short papers of 4 pages plus plenary presentations to receive guidance from established experts, online demonstrations of prototype software systems of 1 page and presentation in informal poster sessions. Accepted submissions include:
- regular research papers (max. 7 pages IEEE style, formal presentation)
- regular industry & application reports (max. 7 pages IEEE style, formal presentation)
- short research papers (max. 4 pages IEEE style, poster presentation)
- short industry & application reports (max. 4 pages IEEE style, poster presentation)
- student research proposals (max. 4 pages IEEE style, formal presentation)
- posters (max. 1 page IEEE style, poster presentation)

Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper (between 1 to 7 pages, standard 2 column IEEE style) via our online submission system by
March 5, 2007. Online submissions of PDF-files via the conference management system are encouraged. For all other forms of submission please contact the conference organisers.

The length of the accepted camera ready papers will be limited to 7 IEEE style pages. Standard IEEE templates & typing instructions, copyright forms, conference registration forms etc. will be supplied upon acceptance. After the conference, selected papers will be considered for publication in appropriate journals and special issues. All conference proceedings are considered for inclusion in major database indexes that are designed to provide easy access to the current literature of the sciences (e.g.: ISI Thomson Scientific, INSPEC ...). Presentation time and form will be limited to 15 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion depending on the submission category.

The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort, L.a.s.
  V.e.g.a.s., Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels). The Monte Carlo is a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000 rooms, with extensive recreational attractions, including: waterfalls, spa, pools & kiddie pools, sunning decks, easy river water ride, wave pool with cascades, lighted tennis courts, health spa (with workout equipment, whirlpool, sauna, ...), nightly shows, snack bars, a number of restaurants, shopping area, bars etc. (most are open 24 hours a day and suitable for families & children). The hotel is a few minutes from the airport with 24-hour shuttle service to and from the airport. The hotel is within walking distance from most other attractions (major shopping areas, recreational destinations, fine dining and night clubs, free street shows etc.). The room rate for conference attendees is approximately USD 79 (2006) per room per night (single or double occupancy).
