Special Issue on: "Knowledge Management and Business Data Mining"

Guest Editors: Dr Dash Wu, University of Toronto, Canada and Dr Marko Torkkeli, Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland

As independently developed subjects, knowledge management and data mining have not been analysed as complementary, much less exploited. Both knowledge management (KM) and data mining (DM) grow and thrive at the confluence of information technologies (machine learning, knowledge-based systems, and databases), statistics and data analysis, as well as the business and management sciences.

The focus of this special issue is on bringing together researchers and practitioners from the areas of data mining and knowledge management. The technical objective is to exchange ideas and techniques from the two areas as well as to establish a framework for the development of methodologies that integrate knowledge management and information discovery.

Subject Coverage
Topics of relevance to the special issue include but are not limited to the following:
  • Integration of data mining and knowledge management
  • Knowledge extraction from data management
  • Business data mining concept, methods and applications
  • Performance evaluation in knowledge management
  • Knowledge discovery
  • Enterprise knowledge management
  • Knowledge repositories
  • Knowledge economy
  • Architectures for DM/KM systems
  • Integration of various types of knowledge through DM/KM
  • Business Intelligence methods and applications
  • Knowledge brokering
  • Assessment of DM/KM applications
  • Case studies of integrating DM/KM
