Word of the Chair


Dear Colleagues and Participants,

It gives us great pleasure to invite you to the World Congress "The Frontier of Intelligent Data and Signal Analysis" DSA in New York. This is one of the most important international conferences in the field of Data Mining and Machine Learning, where you can learn about the latest developments and trends. The congress combines top-notch scientific events with specialized industrial forums and exhibitions, thus offering an excellent platform for scientists, engineers and decision makers from industry, but also for young professionals, for acquiring thorough, quick and broad information on this subject.

Why is intelligent data and signal analysis of such importance?

Our everyday life nowadays is characterized by the digital age. Every day a multitude of information is created that can be processed by computers. This information often exists as data base entries in numerical or symbolic form. There are, however, digital signals also that are collected and stored for example by medical equipment in diagnosis and the surveillance of patients, but also in industrial production and quality control.

In the World Wide Web users of web contents and also the providers leave a large number of data that can be used for further analysis. A multitude of image data is stored that is created by many individuals with digital cameras for personal use, but also in the professional field by scanners in medicine or industry. In addition, there are texts in digital form that are published in the internet by professionals or private persons.

All this data forms a data pool that should do more than just fill the servers or databases of the world and thus strain resources. To create from this data flood a new quality that leads to new products, treatments in medicine, new services - this should be the way into a new future, always geared to the needs of the human being. It requires intelligent mathematical procedures that can be translated into computer programs and that can efficiently convert this enormous data flood into information of general interest.

Why participate, and in which way, in the World Congress "The Frontier of Intelligent Data and Signal Analysis" DSA?

The World Congress "The Frontier of Intelligent Data and Signal Analysis" DSA is the most important international congress dedicated to this subject. It presents the essential new methods from the fields of Data Mining and Machine Learning in general, but also from the specialties Web Mining, Image Mining, Text Mining, Multimedia Data Mining, Time Series Mining etc..

The World Congress "The Frontier of Intelligent Data and Signal Analysis" DSA combines three international conferences:

When you are working in one of these topics, we like to encourage you to choose one of these conferences for your presentation. Figure 1 should give you an overview where to present your work.

In the past few years the following topics have developed at the international conferences that this congress unites. They have led to new and innovative ideas that industry formed into new products.

The applications that are presented at this congress comprise a wide field of marketing applications, medical and LifeScience applications, industrial applications and also agricultural applications (see at the bottom of this message for more information). Once more the diverse application possibilities of intelligent signal-analysis methods are pointed out.

The World Congress thus responds to all aspects of novel data analysis. Leading scientists from research and industry present their work and discuss novel ideas with you. Do make use of the opportunity to inform yourself about the new data-analysis methods. Meet the key players in the field and create networks, so that efficient and intelligent new problems can be tackled.

The World Congress is also a platform for companies, decision makers from industry and marketing, and for networking!

Next to the scientific program, interested companies and representatives from industry have the possibility to present their projects on intelligent data and signal analysis and discuss them with leading experts from industry and research.

Use the opportunity to present your projects and your company on the renowned international World Congress in New York to a highly qualified expert public. Make the acquaintance of leading experts from the field of Data Mining and form a network for future projects and latest developments.

Job fair

Get to know experts and young professionals from research who are interested in industrial developments and would like to increase their qualified staff.

Industrial Exhibition

There is also the possibility of participating in the Industrial Exhibition, where you can present your data mining and data analysis products. For detailed information see www.data-mining-forum.de.

Sponsoring as a means of image advertisement for your company

You would like to become a sponsor of the leading international World Congress DSA. Then we should be pleased if you contacted us under info@data-mining-forum.de.


The papers are published by Springer Publishing House in the Lecture Notes of Computer Sciences and by ibai-publishing house as journal contributions. For more information please visit www.ibai-publishing.org.

Look forward to an outstanding innovative event which we are organizing in one of the most beautiful and exciting cities of the world - New York City.
Contribute to the success of the congress with your scientific or industrial contribution / presentation.

We shall be delighted to welcome you at the World Congress "The Frontier of Intelligent Data and Signal Analysis" DSA 2013.

Looking forward to seeing you,

Yours sincerely,

Prof. Dr. Petra Perner
Chair of the World Congress
