As the field of data mining and knowledge discovery continues to grow, the timely dissemination of emerging research has become increasingly important both in math and stats, as well as across a range of disciplines seeking to take advantage of the wealth of data made available through informatics. This series aims to capture new developments and applications in data mining and knowledge discovery, while summarizing the computational tools and techniques useful in data analysis. This series is being established to encourage the integration of mathematical, statistical, and computational methods and techniques through the publication of a broad range of textbooks, reference works, and handbooks. We are looking to include those single author and contributed works that will—
The inclusion of concrete examples and applications is highly encouraged. The scope of the series includes, but is not limited to, titles in the areas of data mining and knowledge discovery methods and applications, modeling, algorithms, theory and foundations, data and knowledge visualization, data mining systems and tools, and privacy and security issues. We are willing to consider other relevant topics that might be proposed by potential contributors.
