PAKDD 2009 Thai Track Session

This year, we would like to call for papers from Thailand for Thai Track Session, a POSTER session. A high-quality paper is invited to submit to the Thai Track Session at PAKDD 2009.

** Few selected excellent papers will be published in LNCS series **
The session will be parallelled with PAKKDD main conference.

The 13th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (PAKDD-09) is a major international conference in the areas of data mining and knowledge discovery.

The Thai track session facilitates Thai researchers and practitioners in all KDD-related areas to share their new ideas, original research results and practical development experiences with international researchers and experts. The topics include data mining, data warehousing, machine learning, databases, statistics, knowledge acquisition and automatic scientific discovery, data visualization, causal induction and knowledge-based systems.
