Paper Submission Guidelines

We welcome contributions through research papers and industrial reports/case studies on applications in form of regular papers of up to 7 pages, double-column IEEE style, which will be presented in plenary presentations and poster sessions. In addition, we welcome short research papers & industry reports of 4 pages which will be presented in informal poster sessions. Accepted submissions include:

  • regular research papers (7 pages IEEE style, formal presentation)
  • regular industry & application reports (7 pages IEEE style, formal presentation)
  • short research papers (4 pages IEEE style, poster presentation)
  • short industry & application reports (max. 4 pages IEEE style, poster presentation)

General Guidelines (Draft Papers)

Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper (between 4 to 7 pages, standard 2 column IEEE style) (file size limitation: 5.0 MB). Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for presentation or publication elsewhere.

Different to practice at some other WORLDCOMP'12 conferences and different from the announcement in WORLDCOMP's general CfP, DMIN'12 uses an online conference management and paper submission system, to which the draft papers must be submitted online, in IEEE-format and exclusively as a PDF-file (no doc(x) etc.). Please follow the formatting instructions for the draft paper:

    • Paper Size: US Letter format (8.5" x 11") or A4 (210 X 297 mm)
    • Paper Length: Maximum 7 pages, including figures, tables & references
    • Paper formatting: double column, single spaced, 10pt font.
    • Margins: Left, Right, and Bottom: 0.75" (19mm). The top margin must be 0.75" in (19 mm), except for the title page where it must be 1" (25 mm).
    • Do not number your manuscript pages.
    • The first page must include:
      • Title of the paper
      • Name, affiliation, postal address, E-mail address, telephone number, and fax number for each author
      • Underline the name of the author who will be presenting the paper (if accepted) - This will not be required for the camera ready version! 
      • a maximum of 5 keywords - This will not be required for the camera ready version! 

Violations of any of the above paper specifications may result in rejection of your paper!

You may download preliminary information on the IEEE style below. Please consider, that although these files are IEEE information for submissions to the WCCI'06 conference, they are also the requirement for the DMIN'12. This information may be updated for the final camera ready submission to the WORLDCOMP online paper collection system.

Online Submission of the Draft Paper

To submit your paper please visit the online conference system for DMIN'12 hosted by Conference Master. Please submit papers (extended deadline: April 12, 2012). Please click on the button below to access to the DMIN conference management system:

Submit DMIN'12 Draft Paper
The submission system is closed.

If you want to submit your paper to a special session, please select an appropriate 'track' within the paper submission system.

Please do not send papers by email! Emailed submissions will be rejected without further notification.

Review Process

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two researchers in the topical area. To reflect upon feedback from last year we will extend the constructive feedback given within the review. Please consult the pages for the Review Process for additional Information.

We particularly encourage submissions of industrial applications and case studies from practitioners. To reflect the requirements of an application or project centric case study presentation, these will be subject to different review criteria. In particular, they will not be evaluated using predominantly theoretical research criteria of originality etc., but will take general interest and presentation stronger into consideration. The camera-ready papers will be reviewed by one person.

Final Papers - Registration and Submission

Author instructions and links to important websites are provided by the notification of acceptance. As indicated in the notification, the final camera-ready papers have to be submitted to WORLDCOMP's specific online paper collection system (i.e., NOT our DMIN online draft paper management system for draft papers).

Conference Proceedings

The conference proceedings are published by CSREA Press in hardcopy. The proceedings are distributed at the conference (registration package).

The DBLP entry of the DMIN'10 proceedings can be found at http://dblp.uni-trier.de/db/conf/dmin/dmin2010.html

Robert Stahlbock, Sven F. Crone (Eds.): Proceedings of The 2010 International Conference on Data Mining, DMIN 2010, July 12-15, 2010, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. CSREA Press 2010, ISBN 1-60132-138-4

Proceedings of DMIN will be published in printed conference books (ISBN) and will also be made available online. The proceedings will be indexed in science citation databases that track citation frequency/data for each published paper (science citation databases such as: Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology; The French National Center for Scientific Research, CNRS, INIST databases, PASCAL (covers the core scientific literature in Science; about 90% of inclusions are journals; only about 9% are proceedings; worldcomp tracks are selected to be among the 9% - accessable from INIST, Datastar, Dialog, EBSCO, OVID, Questel.Orbit, Qwam, and STN International); and others. Though, there is no guarantee that the proceedings will also be included in EI Compendex/Elsevier indexings, in the past, worldcomp tracks were included in these databases. Therefore, we will also be sending the proceedings for indexing procedures to EI Compendex/Elsevier. The printed proceedings/books will be available for distribution on site at the conference.
