Data mining has been an area of considerable research and application in Australia and the region for many years. This has resulted in the establi- ment of a strong tradition of academic and industry scholarship, blended with the pragmatics of practice in the ?eld of data mining and analytics. ID3, See5, RuleQuest.com, MagnumOpus, and WEKA is but a short list of the data m- ing tools and technologiesthat havebeen developed in Australasia.Data mining conferences held in Australia have attracted considerable international interest and involvement. This book brings together a unique collection of chapters that cover the breadthand depth of data mining today.This volumeprovides a snapshotof the current state of the art in data mining, presenting it both in terms of technical developments and industry applications. Authors include some of Australia’s leading researchers and practitioners in data mining, together with chapters from regional and international authors. The collection of chapters is based on works presented at the Australasian Data Mining conference series and industry forums. The original papers were initially reviewedfor the workshops,conferencesand forums. Presentingauthors wereprovidedwithsubstantialfeedback,boththroughthisinitialreviewprocess and through editorial feedback from their presentations. A ?nal international peer review process was conducted to include input from potential users of the research,andinparticularanalyticsexpertsfromindustry,lookingatthe impact of reviewed works.
