This SpringerBrief provides an overview within data mining of spatiotemporal frequent pattern mining from evolving regions to the perspective of relationship modeling among the spatiotemporal objects, frequent pattern mining algorithms, and data access methodologies for mining algorithms. While the focus of this book is to provide readers insight into the mining algorithms from evolving regions, the authors also discuss data management for spatiotemporal trajectories, which has become increasingly important with the increasing volume of trajectories. This brief describes state-of-the-art knowledge discovery techniques to computer science graduate students who are interested in spatiotemporal data mining, as well as researchers/professionals, who deal with advanced spatiotemporal data analysis in their fields. These fields include GIS-experts, meteorologists, epidemiologists, neurologists, and solar physicists.
Our ability to generate and collect data has been increasing rapidly. Not only are all of our business, scientific, and government transactions now computerized, but the widespread use of digital cameras, publication tools, and bar codes also generate data. On the collection side, scanned text and image platforms, satellite remote sensing systems, and the World Wide Web have flooded us with a tremendous amount of data. This explosive growth has generated an even more urgent need for new techniques and automated tools that can help us transform this data into useful information and knowledge. Like the first edition, voted the most popular data mining book by KD Nuggets readers, this book explores concepts and techniques for the discovery of patterns hidden in large data sets, focusing on issues relating to their feasibility, usefulness, effectiveness, and scalability. However, since the publication of the first edition, great progress has been made in the development of new data mining methods, systems, and applications. This new edition substantially enhances the first edition, and new chapters have been added to address recent developments on mining complex types of data— including stream data, sequence data, graph structured data, social network data, and multi-relational data. A comprehensive, practical look at the concepts and techniques you need to know to get the most out of real business data Updates that incorporate input from readers, changes in the field, and more material on statistics and machine learning Dozens of algorithms and implementation examples, all in easily understood pseudo-code and suitable for use in real-world, large-scale data mining projects Complete classroom support for instructors at www.mkp.com/datamining2e companion site
Drawn from the US National Science Foundation’s Symposium on Next Generation of Data Mining and Cyber-Enabled Discovery for Innovation (NGDM 07), Next Generation of Data Mining explores emerging technologies and applications in data mining as well as potential challenges faced by the field. Gathering perspectives from top experts across different disciplines, the book debates upcoming challenges and outlines computational methods. The contributors look at how ecology, astronomy, social science, medicine, finance, and more can benefit from the next generation of data mining techniques. They examine the algorithms, middleware, infrastructure, and privacy policies associated with ubiquitous, distributed, and high performance data mining. They also discuss the impact of new technologies, such as the semantic web, on data mining and provide recommendations for privacy-preserving mechanisms. The dramatic increase in the availability of massive, complex data from various sources is creating computing, storage, communication, and human-computer interaction challenges for data mining. Providing a framework to better understand these fundamental issues, this volume surveys promising approaches to data mining problems that span an array of disciplines.
Understanding sequence data, and the ability to utilize this hidden knowledge, will create a significant impact on many aspects of our society.

This book provides thorough coverage of the existing results on sequence data mining as well as pattern types and associated pattern mining methods. It offers balanced coverage on data mining and sequence data analysis, allowing readers to access the state-of-the-art results in one place.
The widespread use of XML in business and scientific databases has prompted the development of methodologies, techniques, and systems for effectively managing and analyzing XML data. This has increasingly attracted the attention of different research communities, including database, information retrieval, pattern recognition, and machine learning, from which several proposals have been offered to address problems in XML data management and knowledge discovery. XML Data Mining: Models, Methods, and Applications aims to collect knowledge from experts of database, information retrieval, machine learning, and knowledge management communities in developing models, methods, and systems for XML data mining. This book addresses key issues and challenges in XML data mining, offering insights into the various existing solutions and best practices for modeling, processing, analyzing XML data, and for evaluating performance of XML data mining algorithms and systems.

ThePaci?c-AsiaConferenceonKnowledgeDiscoveryandData Mining hasbeen held every year from 1997. PAKDD 2009, the 13th in the series, was held in Bangkok, Thailand during April 27-30, 2008. PAKDD is a major inter- tional conference in the areas of data mining (DM) and knowledge discovery in database (KDD). It provides an international forum for researchers and ind- try practitioners to share their new ideas, original research results and prac- cal development experiences from all KDD-related areas including data mining, data warehousing, machine learning, databases, statistics, knowledge acqui- tion and automatic scienti?c discovery, data visualization, causal induction and knowledge-based systems. ForPAKDD2009,wereceived338researchpapersfromvariouscountriesand regions in Asia, Australia, North America, South America, Europe, and Africa. Every submission was rigorously reviewed by at least three reviewers with a doubleblindprotocol.Theinitialresultswerediscussedamongthereviewersand ?nally judged by the ProgramCommittee Chairs. When there was a con?ict, an additionalreviewwasprovidedbytheProgramCommitteeChairs.TheProgram Committee members were deeply involved in the highly selective process. As a result, only 39 papers (approximately 11.5% of the 338 submitted papers) were accepted as regular papers, 73 papers (21.6% of them) were accepted as short papers.

With the ever-growing power of generating, transmitting, and collecting huge amounts of data, information overloadis nowan imminent problemto mankind. The overwhelming demand for information processing is not just about a better understanding of data, but also a better usage of data in a timely fashion. Data mining, or knowledge discovery from databases, is proposed to gain insight into aspects ofdata and to help peoplemakeinformed,sensible,and better decisions. At present, growing attention has been paid to the study, development, and application of data mining. As a result there is an urgent need for sophisticated techniques and toolsthat can handle new ?elds of data mining, e. g. , spatialdata mining, biomedical data mining, and mining on high-speed and time-variant data streams. The knowledge of data mining should also be expanded to new applications. The 6th International Conference on Advanced Data Mining and Appli- tions(ADMA2010)aimedtobringtogethertheexpertsondataminingthrou- out the world. It provided a leading international forum for the dissemination of original research results in advanced data mining techniques, applications, al- rithms, software and systems, and di?erent applied disciplines. The conference attracted 361 online submissions from 34 di?erent countries and areas. All full papers were peer reviewed by at least three members of the Program Comm- tee composed of international experts in data mining ?elds. A total number of 118 papers were accepted for the conference. Amongst them, 63 papers were selected as regular papers and 55 papers were selected as short papers.
