Data mining, the art and science of intelligent analysis of (usually large) data sets for meaningful (and previously unknown) insights, is now being actively applied in industries including Financial Services, Government, Insurance, Telecommunications, Retail and Distribution, Transportation, and Utilities. A popular application of data mining across industries is customer analytics, where the goal is to understand customers and better service those customers, whether this is through marketing, stock management, or fraud discovery.

The Australasian Data Mining Conference has established itself as the premier Australasian meeting for both practitioners and researchers in data mining. AusDM02, AusDM03, and AusDM04 have showcased research in data mining, providing a forum for presenting and discussing the latest research and developments. A book (Data Mining: Theory, Methodology, Techniques, and Applications) to be published by Springer in their State-of-the-Art Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series, based on research papers from the recent conference, is currently under production.
