The Second  Pacific-Asia  Conference on Knowledge Discovery   and Data
Mining (PAKDD-98) will provide  an international forum for the sharing
of  original research  results  and practical development  experiences
among researchers   and   application developers from    different KDD
related  areas   such as   machine  learning,  databases,  statistics,
knowledge   acquisition,  data visualization, software re-engineering,
and knowledge-based systems.  It  will follow the success of  PAKDD-97
held  in  Singapore in  1997  by  bringing together  participants from
universities, industry and government.

Papers on  all aspects  of  knowledge discovery  and  data  mining are
welcome.  Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

   - Data and Dimensionality Reduction
   - Data Mining Algorithms and Tools
   - Data Mining and Data Warehousing
   - Data Mining on the Internet
   - Data Mining Metrics
   - Data Preprocessing and Postprocessing
   - Data and Knowledge Visualization
   - Deduction and Induction in KDD
   - Discretisation of Continuous Data
   - Distributed Data Mining
   - KDD Framework and Process
   - Knowledge Representation and Acquisition in KDD
   - Knowledge Reuse and Role of Domain Knowledge
   - Knowledge Acquisition in Software Re-Engineering and Software 
     Information Systems
   - Induction of Rules and Decision Trees
   - Management Issues in KDD
   - Machine Learning, Statistical and Visualization Aspects of KDD
     (including Neural Networks, Rough Set Theory and Inductive Logic
   - Mining in-the-large vs Mining in-the-small
   - Noise Handling
   - Security and Privacy Issues in KDD
   - Successful/Innovative KDD Applications in Science, Government,
     Business and Industry.

Both research  and  applications papers are solicited.   All submitted
papers will  be reviewed on the basis  of technical quality, relevance
to KDD, significance, and clarity.   Accepted papers will be published
in the conference proceedings by Springer-Verlag (in the Lecture Notes
in Artificial Intelligence series).  A selected number of the accepted
papers will be expanded and  revised for inclusion  in a special issue
of an international journal.

All submissions  should be  limited to a  maximum of 5,000 words. Four
hardcopies should be forwarded to the following address.
