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 23 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 1,500 researchers and
practitioners from 78 countries. It is anticipated that The WORLDCOMP'07
will attract about 2000 participants. The WORLDCOMP'07 is composed of 24
(planned) major conferences - attendees will have full access to all 24
conferences' sessions, tracks, and tutorials (planned). 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, Las Vegas, 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.

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
- student research proposals (max. 4 pages IEEE style, formal
- 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 Feb. 20, 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, IEE 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, ...),
