Theme Statement

The proliferation of digital computing devices and their use in communication has resulted in an increased demand for systems and algorithms capable of mining textual data. Thus, the development of techniques for mining unstructured, semi-structured, and fully structured textual data has become quite important in both academia and industry. As a result, this Workshop will survey the emerging field of Text Mining - the application of techniques of machine learning in conjunction with natural language processing, information extraction and algebraic/mathematical approaches to computational information retrieval. Many issues are being addressed in this field ranging from the development of new learning approaches to the parallelization of existing algorithms. The goal of this Workshop is to provide a venue for researchers to share initial approaches and preliminary results of recent research in Text Mining. Through the careful selection and review of submitted workshop papers, we hope to provide a suitable selection of topics that will both generate interest and provide insight into the state of the field of Text Mining.

A one-day workshop on Text Mining is being held in conjunction with SDM 2003 in San Francisco, CA (May '03) to bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines to present their current approaches and results in text mining.

Topics of interest include:


Attendees are required to register for SDM 2003 so that no separate registration is needed for this workshop.
