Data Preparation for Data Mining Track of the 
18th International Database Engineering & Applications Symposium 
(IDEAS 2014)

(accepted papers will be included in the IDEAS14 proceedings and
published by ACM)
-----Call for Papers ---------

Current technological developments allow the collection of huge amounts
of data that can be used to support decision-making processes. However,
this is only possible if data can be transformed into knowledge.
Various kind of data mining algorithms are used to extract data
patterns.  Tasks for pattern extraction include classification (rules or
trees), regression, clustering, association, sequence modeling,
dependency, and so forth. However, much work in the field of data mining
was built on the existence of data with quality, and real-world data is
often incomplete, noisy, or inconsistent, representing an obstacle for
efficient data analysis/mining. Other challenges include big data
(number of features/examples, efficiency, parallel processing), curse of
dimensionality, or the use of domain knowledge. Although most mining
algorithms have some procedures for dealing with dirty data, they lack
for robustness. Furthermore, low-quality data will lead to low-quality
data analysis/mining results (Garbage in, garbage out). Data preparation
techniques, when applied before mining, can substantially improve the
overall quality of the data and consequently improve the mining results
and/or the time required for the actual mining process. Thus, the
development of data preparation techniques is both a challenging and a
critical task. This special session on Data Preparation for Data Mining
will address practical techniques and methodologies of data preparation
for data-mining applications.
