We invite you to attend DMIN'11, the 2011 International Conference on Data Mining! DMIN'11 offers a 4 day single-track conference, keynote speeches by world renowned scientists, special sessions and free tutorials on all aspects of data mining. In the past, DMIN'10 has attracted more than 80 presentations in formal sessions plus keynotes, and excellent tutorials, with over 100 attendees plus many more visitors from other WORLDCOMP conferences.

DMIN'11 is part of WORLDCOMP'11. DMIN'11 is an international conference for academics and practitioners held simultaneously with 21 other joint conferences as part of WORLDCOMP'11, The 2011 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing. WORLDCOMP'11 is one of the largest annual gatherings of researchers and practitioners in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. Each of the joint conferences in WORLDCOMP is a premier conference for presentation of advances in their respective fields, held simultaneously in the same place to facilitate  cross-disciplinary knowledge transfer. The last offering of WORLDCOMP (2010) attracted almost 2,000 computer science and engineering researchers from 81 countries. It is anticipated that WORLDCOMP'11 will attract over 2,000 participants. Participants range from established researchers on Professorial level, starting researchers (post-doc, PhD, Masters and Bachelor level) and contract researchers unto practitioners applying all aspects of data mining in private or public companies or research institutions. DMIN'11 attendees have full access to all sessions and tutorials of all 22 conferences' sessions, tracks, and planned tutorials (for the complete list of joint conferences [click here]) as well as to the DMIN'11 social programme. WORLDCOMP is one of the largest annual conferences and promises many opportunities to present your work to an large, interdisciplinary audience and to extend our professional network. Each conference will have its own proceedings which will be indexed.

An important mission of WORLDCOMP is 'Providing a unique platform for a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress 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. The congress also attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions that have research as their main mission. The congress uses a quota system to achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives.'

DMIN'11 attracts quality papers & presentations. DMIN accepts only high-quality papers for its conference proceedings, which are subject to a thorough & objective review process of at least 2 independent reviewers (leading academics & practitioners). The proceedings will be indexed in Inspec/IET/The Institute for Engineering and Technology (approved), DBLP/Computer Science Bibliography (they have always included the proceedings), and other major database indexes are considered (e.g., ISI Thomson Scientific).  

The DMIN conference has been highly ranked in the past. Please do not confuse DMIN with other "multi-conferences" with approximately 100% acceptance rates, although DMIN had higher acceptance rates then KDD, ICDM, PAKDD or other exclusive first-tier conferences in the past.

Caliber & ranking of WORLDCOMP conferences worldwide. Thanks to authors and speakers of WORLDCOMP congress and members of the editorial board who informed us of the following good news: According to "Microsoft Academic Search" (a Microsoft initiative) all tracks of WORLDCOMP are listed as worldwide "Top-ranked Conferences" (based on various metrics, including the number of citations). You can access "Microsoft Academic Search" and specific information extracted from it (in reference to WORLDCOMP conferences) from here.


Like prior years, the proceedings will be indexed into science databases during the month of December (Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering and Technology, DBLP / Computer Science Bibliography, and others.)
