  12th Australasian Data Mining Conference (AusDM 2014)
         Brisbane, Australia, 27-28 November 2014

Data Mining is the art and science of intelligent analysis of (usually big) data sets for meaningful insights. Data mining is actively applied across all industries including defence, medicine, science, finance, customer relationship management, government, insurance, telecommunications, retail and distribution, transportation, and utilities.

The Australasian Data Mining Conference has established itself as the premier Australasian meeting for both practitioners and researchers in data mining. Since AusDM'02 the conference has showcased research in data mining, providing a forum for presenting and discussing the latest research and developments. Since 2006, all proceedings have been printed as volumes in the CRPIT series.

This year's conference, AusDM'14 builds on this tradition of facilitating the cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas, experience and potential research directions. Specifically, the conference seeks to showcase: Industry Case Studies; Research Prototypes; Practical Analytics Technology; and Research Student Projects. AusDM'14 will be a meeting place for pushing forward the frontiers of data mining in industry and academia. We have lined up an excellent Keynote Speaker program.

Publication and topics

We are calling for papers, both research and applications, and from both academia and industry, for publication and presentation at the conference. All papers will go through peer-review by a panel of international experts. Accepted papers will be published in an upcoming volume (Data Mining and Analytics 2014) of the Conferences in Research and Practice in Information Technology (CRPIT) series by the Australian Computer Society which is also held in full-text on the ACM Digital Library. The proceeding in electronic version will be distributed at the conference. For more details on CRPIT please see

This year we are introducing a new track "Industry Showcase" for industry participants to present the state-of-the-art analytics projects. These submissions can be of non-academic-publication style and will be for presentation only. These case studies and data mining experiences will not be included in the conference proceeding.

Please note that we require that at least one author for each accepted paper will register for the conference and present their work.

AusDM invites contributions addressing current research in data mining and knowledge discovery as well as experiences, novel applications and future challenges. Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

- Applications and Case Studies | Lessons and Experiences
- Big Data Analytics
- Biomedical and Health Data Mining
- Business Analytics
- Computational Aspects of Data Mining
- Data Integration, Matching and Linkage

Submission of papers

We invite three types of submissions for AusDM 2014:

- Research Track:
Normal academic submissions reporting on research progress, with a paper length of between 8 and 12 pages in CRPIT style, as detailed below. For academic submissions we will use a double-blinded review process, i.e. paper submissions must NOT include authors names or affiliations or acknowledgments referring to funding bodies. Self-citing references should also be removed from the submitted papers for the double blind reviewing purpose. These information can be added on after the review.

- Application Track:
Submissions on specific data mining implementations and experiences in government and industry settings. Submissions in this category can be between 4 and 8 pages in CRPIT style, as detailed below. A committee made of mix of academic and industry representatives will review these submissions.

- Industry Showcase:
Submissions in this track are presentation only. In this track, government and industry participants can present the case studies and their experiences without getting worried about publication. We call for an extended abstract up to two pages to assess these submissions. A special committee made of industry representatives will review these submissions.

Paper submissions in Research and Application tracks are required to follow the general format specified for papers in the CRPIT series by the Australian Computer Society. Submission details are available from LaTeX styles and Word templates may be found on this site. LaTeX is the recommended typesetting package.

The electronic submissions must be in PDF only, and made through the AusDM'14 Submission Page at
