The Australasian Data Mining Conference is devoted to the art and science of intelligent data mining: the meaningful analysis of (usually large) data sets to discover relationships and present the data in novel ways that are compact, comprehendible and useful for researchers and practitioners. We are usually seeking from the Data Mining and Business Analytics community reports on issues around Implementations of Data Mining Algorithms in addition to updates of research and progress in the local context, new breakthroughs in data mining algorithms and their applications. In addition, this year the Australasian Data Mining Conference is looking specifically at demonstrations of original data mining solutions and working prototypes!

Data mining projects involve both the utilisation of established algorithms frommachine learning, statistics, database systems and information visulaisation, and the development of new methods and algorithms, targeted at large data mining problems. Nowadays data mining efforts have gone beyond crunching databases of credit card usage or stored transaction records. They have been focusing on data collected in the health care system, art, design, medicine and biology and other areas of human endeavour.

AusDM02 and AusDM03 brought together researchers and industry practitioners from different data mining groups in Australia and the region, providing a forum for presenting and discussing their latest research and development in the area. AusDM04 continues this tradition of facilitating the cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas, experience and potential research directions.


As with the previous conferences all papers will go through a blind peer-review by a panel of international experts and selected ones will be published in a proceedings volume for the conference. Revised papers may be published, with negotiations under way with Springer-Verlag, as a collected volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Topics of interest

The major topics of the conference include but are not limited to

We encourage submissions of `greenhouse' work, which present early stages of cutting-edge research and development. Software demonstrations are also welcome. The format of the conference will accommodate full paper presentations and short presentations about a work in progress, overview of a data mining group or software demonstration.


The length of the submissions is not restricted. We encourage submissions of 10-15 pages. The first page of your submission should include the paper title; author name(s) and affiliation, address, email; keywords; and abstract. Electronic submissions in either PDF, PS, RTF or Microsoft Word Document format are preferable. Please, e-mail electronic submissions to with subject "AusDM04 Submission".
