Special Issue on: "Advances in Data Mining and Its Applications"

Guest Editor:
Feng Liu, Wuhan University, China

Although data mining is a relatively new term, the technology is not. Data mining is primarily used today by companies with powerful computers to sift through volumes of supermarket scanner data and analyse market research reports.

It allows these companies – retail, financial, communication and marketing organisations – a strong consumer focus, and enables them to determine impacts on sales, customer satisfaction and corporate profits. Power, disk storage and statistical software are dramatically increasing the accuracy of analysis while driving down cost.

This special issue aims to provide an in-depth presentation of relevant recent advances in methodologies, algorithms theories and applications related to data mining.
