Note 1:
There are a number of other sessions (not listed as part of DMIN'09
schedule) that are of significant interest to DMIN conference
participants (sessions belonging to other joint conferences in this
event.)  Therefore, you are encouraged to also check the schedules
for other joint conferences.  In particular, sessions in ICAI'09,
GEM'09, IKE'09, & EEE'09, discuss topics that are within the scope
of DMIN; these have been scheduled so that DMIN attendees can also
participate in them.

Note 2:
Each conference is divided into a number of topical sessions.  These
sessions are not necessarily scheduled in the same room/location.

6:45am - 5:00pm:  REGISTRATION (Second Floor, Conference Lobby: 1-5)

08:00a - 06:00p:  During this period, DMIN'09 attendees are encouraged to participate
                  in sessions belonging to ICAI'09, GEM'09, IKE'09, or EEE'09.
                  These sessions discuss topics that significantly overlap the scope
                  of DMIN'09.

If your paper is missing from the schedule above, then it may be because of one of the following 
two reasons:
  1. You have already informed the organizers that you will not be able to attend the conference.
  2. You did not register.
The titles and the names of authors listed below are extracted from the list of accepted papers 
that were submitted for evaluation; therefore, they may be slightly different from what the 
authors uploaded to the publication site (ie, from the final papers).
If your paper is listed in these schedules BUT you (and your co-authors) are not able to attend 
and present the paper, then you are to let us know (email to programme-chair@dmin--2009.com and/or
to Professor Hamid R. Arabnia via hra@cs.uga.edu) so that the schedules can be updated (if 
this is the case, then please email the paper ID number + title of the paper and a statement 
that no one would be presenting the paper as soon as possible).
If you register or decide to attend after publication of the schedule your paper might be scheduled in a session 
that does not perfectly reflect the topic of your paper [tagged]. However, we do our best to schedule all papers 
according to their topics but we have nearly any degree of freedom yet due to lack of many free slots.

Accepted Tutorial Sessions

All tutorials are free to registered conference attendees of all conferences held at WOLDCOMP'09. Please visit DMIN'09 Tutorials for detailed information on data mining oriented tutorials. A complete & current list of WORLDCOMP Tutorials can be found here.


Accepted Special Sessions and Workshops

All special sessions and workshops are part of DMIN'09 and attendance is open to attendees of all conferences held at WOLDCOMP'09. Please consult the DMIN'09 special sessions webpage for additional details and descriptions.
