The 2002 IEEE International Conference  on  Data Mining (ICDM '02)  will
include 6 tutorials  providing in-depth background  on specific subjects
in data mining.  The recency of the data mining field,  and  the variety
of disciplines  that are represented,  lead to  many  possibilities  for
good tutorials. The followings  are  the topics  and the speakers of the

The main scopes  of ICDM'02 tutorials  are  along  the following lines,
and the above tutorials certainly address these scopes.

    * End-to-end  descriptions  of the  practical  application of  data
      mining technology (i.e., applications that may be "typical" for a
      paper, but  provide an example of  issues faced in  a data mining
      project that would generalize to problems faced by the conference
      attendees)  in  emerging  data mining  application areas  such as
      bioinformatics and  medical applications, and etc.
    * Surveys   of  new   and   developing  research   areas  in   data
      mining (e.g.,  areas  of  structured, textual, temporal, spatial,
      multimedia,  Web, distributed, scientific  data mining, data pre-
      processing,  data reduction,  data sampling,  feature  selection,
      feature  transformation,  man-machine interaction  in data mining
      and visual data mining).
    * Short  courses  on  areas  of  machine  learning,  databases,  or
      statistics  that  may  be   "old  hat"  to  specialists  in  that
      discipline,  but  are  new   to  a  majority  of  the  conference
      attendees. (e.g., an introduction to Hidden Markov Models).
    * An in-depth coverage of a past research breakthrough  that is now
      becoming a mature technology.
