Call for Chapters: 2014 : Improving Knowledge Discovery through the Integration of Data Mining Techniques
Call For Papers
The integrated use of data mining and data warehousing techniques such as Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) has received considerable attention from researchers and practitioners alike, as they are key tools used in knowledge discovery from large data datasets. Although, a variety of integrated approaches have been proposed in the literature to mine large datasets for discovering knowledge. However, a number of issues remain unresolved in the previous work, especially on intelligent data analysis front.
This book aims to discuss and address the difficulties and challenges that of seamless integration of the two core disciplines of knowledge discovery. The editor will seek chapters that address different methods and techniques of integration for enhancing the overall goal of knowledge discovery. Additionally, the book will explore the impact of such techniques in a variety of application domains ranging from government, education, science, agriculture engineering etc.
The primary objective of this book is to provide insights concerning the integration of data mining and data warehousing for enhancing the knowledge discovery process. This is a front-line and important topic that is of interest in both industry and knowledge engineering research. The current approaches of knowledge discovery in industry are ad-hoc where data mining and warehousing is dealt separately. There is no standard rule of thumb in integrating these two disciplines. This book is an excellent opportunity to report on the existing gaps in this area and to propose novel approaches to bridge the existing gaps.
Decision makers, academicians, researchers, advanced-level students, technology developers, and Business Intelligence professionals will find this text useful in furthering their research exposure to relevant topics in knowledge discovery and assisting in furthering their own research efforts in this field.
Contributors are welcome to submit chapters on the following topics relating to data mining integration with data warehousing. Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
Data mining techniques: clustering, classification, association rules, decision trees, etc.
Data and knowledge representation
Knowledge discovery framework and process, including pre- and post-processing
Integration of data warehousing, OLAP and data mining
