We invite you to attend DMIN'17, the 2017 International Conference on Data Mining! DMIN'17 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 conferences of the 2017 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (CSCE'17).

DMIN'17 is part of CSCE'17. DMIN'17 is an international conference for academics and practitioners held simultaneously with other joint conferences as part of CSCE'17, the 2017 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing. CSCE'17 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 CSCE 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 CSCE'17 will attract between 1,000 and 2,000 participants from over 70 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. Last year, 55% of CSCE attendees were from academia, 24% from industry; 20% from government and funding agencies; and 1% unknown. About half of the attendees were from outside USA; from 74 nations.

DMIN'17 attendees have full access to all sessions and tutorials of all other conferences' sessions, tracks, and planned tutorials (for the complete list of the 20 joint conferences click here) as well as to the DMIN'17 social programme. CSCE 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 CSCE 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'17 attracts quality papers & presentations. DMIN accepts 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. All accepted papers will be published in printed conference books (ISBN), imprinted by the American Council on Science and Education, and distributed/published by CSREA (Computer Science Research, Education, and Applications Press). The proceedings will also be made available online. The printed proceedings/books will be available for distribution on site at the conference. The books will be indexed in science databases, including EBSCO (, one of the largest subject index systems, and others. ACM Digital Library is also including the titles into its databases as well as ProQuest indexing databases and others. In addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about 40%) will appear in journals and 15 edited research books; publishers include, Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others. Each book in each series will be subject to Elsevier and Springer science indexing products (which includes: Scopus,; SCI Compendex, Engineering Village,; EMBASE,; and others). See the web link below for a small subset of such publications: (some of these books and journal special issues have already received the top 25% downloads in their respective fields and/or identified as "Highly Accessed" by publishers and/or science citation index trackers.) Furthermore, DMIN is aiming to be indexed by DBLP. DMIN is alsop planning to publish an edited book volume (Springer).

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.

MEASURABLE SCIENTIFIC IMPACT OF CONGRESS. As of December 31, 2016, the proceedings of the World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, & Applied Computing have received 27,892 citations (includes 3,346 self-citations). Citation data is obtained from Microsoft Academic Search. The citation data does not even include more than 15,000 other citations to papers published by conferences whose first offerings were initiated by the Congress (such as: FUSION, ICWS, ICMLA, and others). In recent years, the paper acceptance rate for each track has been between 22% and 35%.
