IADIS European Conference Data Mining 2013 (part of the MCCSIS 2013 Conference)


The 7th edition of the Data Mining 2013 (ECDM) European Conference was hosted in Prague, Czech Republic, during 22 to 24 July, 2013 and was co-organised by The University of Economics in Prague (VŠE), Czech Republic. This conference was part of the IADIS Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems 2013, 22 - 26 July.

This ECDM Conference aims to gather researchers and application developers from a wide range of data mining related areas such as statistics, computational intelligence, pattern recognition, databases and visualization. ECDM'12 aims to advance the state of the art in data mining field and its various real world applications. ECDM'12 will provide opportunities for technical collaboration among data mining and machine learning researchers around the globe.

dm2013Submissions were accepted under the following areas and topics:

Core Data Mining Topics
- Parallel and distributed data mining algorithms
- Data streams mining
- Graph mining
- Spatial data mining
- Text video, multimedia data mining
- Web mining
- Pre-processing techniques
- Visualization
- Security and information hiding in data mining

Data Mining Applications
- Databases
- Bioinformatics
- Biometrics
- Image analysis
- Financial modeling
- Forecasting
- Classification
- Clustering
- Social Networks
- Educational data mining

The ECDM 2013 Conference had 42 submissions from more than 19 countries. Each submission has been anonymously reviewed by an average of four independent reviewers, to guarantee the final high standard of the accepted submissions. Consequently only 6 full papers were approved which corresponds to an acceptance rate of 14 %. A few more papers were accepted as short papers, reflection paper and poster demonstration.

The Conference Program featured an opening and closing sessions, 2 parallel paper sessions, 1 Keynote Presentation and a Poster Session.

The keynote presentation was given by Professor Jaroslav Pokorný, Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Praha, Czech Republic.

Extended versions of the best papers were selected to be published as extended versions in the the IADIS International Journal on Computer Science and Information Systems (ISSN: 1646-3692) and/or in the IADIS International Journal on WWW/Internet (ISSN: 1645-7641) and also in other selected journals, including journals from Inderscience. Some of the best papers will be eligible to be extended and enhanced as book chapters for inclusion in a book to be published by IGI Global.

Both research and practice indicate that traditional universal DBMS architecture hardly satisfies new trends in data processing, particularly in the context of cloud computing and Big Data problems. New database architectures and their basic features will be described, particularly their horizontal scalability and concurrency model, which is mostly weaker than ACID transactions in relational SQL-like database systems. We focus on so called NoSQL databases which support solving, at least partially, Big Data problems. Some features of NoSQL databases like data models and querying capabilities are presented in more detail. We will also mention an overview of some their representatives. Finally, we point out on actual problems associated with current database research at all.

The Data Mining 2013 was published in Book (ISBN: 78-972-8939-93-9).
