FAQ - Frequent Questions

Can I also submit papers on other topics?
Yes, but the topic should be somewhat related to the methods, applications, processes or future extensions of data mining. We particularly welcome all papers on methods of Artificial Intelligence, Computational Intelligence, Machine Learning etc. If in doubt, please contact the programme chair beforehand.
