We invite you to attend DMIN'15, the 2015 International Conference on Data Mining! DMIN'15 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 has attracted a lot of presentations in formal sessions plus keynotes, and excellent tutorials, with a lot of attendees plus many more visitors from other WORLDCOMP conferences.

DMIN'15 is part of WORLDCOMP'15. DMIN'15 is an international conference for academics and practitioners held simultaneously with other joint conferences as part of WORLDCOMP'15, The 2015 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing. WORLDCOMP'13 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. It is anticipated that WORLDCOMP'15 will attract attendees from over 85 countries/territories. 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'15 attendees have full access to all sessions and tutorials of all other conferences' sessions, tracks, and planned tutorials (for the complete list of joint conferences click here) as well as to the DMIN'15 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.  One main goal of the congress 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. This model facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing. The Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary research initiatives; ie, facilitating increased opportunities for cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines.'

DMIN'15 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).

Citation Index. The proceedings will be published in printed conference books (ISBN) and will also be made available online. The printed proceedings/books will be available for distribution on site at the conference. The proceedings will be indexed in science citation databases that track citation frequency/data for each published paper. Science citation databases include: Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology; The French National Center for Scientific Research, CNRS, INIST databases, PASCAL (accessable from INIST, Datastar, Dialog, EBSCO, OVID, Questel.Orbit, Qwam, & STN International); and others. The proceedings/books of this congress have been evaluated for inclusion into major science citation index databases. We are happy to report that so far, the evaluation board of science citation index databases have approved the indexing, integrating, and inclusion of the DMIN conference into relevant indexing databases (indexing databases include, among others: Scopus, www.info.scopus.com; SCI Compendex, Engineering Village, www.ei.org; EMBASE, www.info.embase.com; and others).

In addition to the above, WORLDCOMP has arranged two new book series (multiple books in each series); one with Elsevier publishers (Emerging Trends in Computer Science and Applied Computing) and another with Springer publishers (Transactions of Computational Science and Computational Intelligence). After the conference (the whole process takes 12 months), a significant number of authors of accepted papers of our congress, will be given the opportunity to submit the extended version of their papers for publication consideration in these books. We anticipate having between 10 to 20 books a year in each of these book series projects. Each book in each series will be subject to Elsevier and Springer science indexing products (which includes: Scopus, www.info.scopus.com; SCI Compendex, Engineering Village, www.ei.org; EMBASE, www.info.embase.com; and others).

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.
