The IEEE International Conference on Data Mining series (ICDM) has established itself as the world's premier research conference in data mining. It provides an international forum for presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative, practical development experiences. The conference covers all aspects of data mining, including algorithms, software and systems, and applications. In addition, ICDM draws researchers and application developers from a wide range of data mining related areas such as statistics, machine learning, pattern recognition, databases and data warehousing, data visualization, knowledge-based systems, and high performance computing. By promoting novel, high quality research findings, and innovative solutions to challenging data mining problems, the conference seeks to continuously advance the state-of-the-art in data mining. Besides the technical program, the conference features workshops, tutorials, panels and, since 2007, the ICDM data mining contest.
ICDM is held annually, in different regions of the world. The table below shows the locations and conference dates for ICDM 2001 to 2012.

The Steering Committee coordinates the conference series. It decides where and when the next conference will be held, and selects the Program Chair(s).
Both ICDM proceedings and ICDM workshops proceedings are published by the IEEE Computer Society Press each year. A selected number of ICDM top-ranked papers will be expanded and revised for possible inclusion in the KAIS journal (Knowledge and Information Systems, by Springer) every year. This will be mentioned in all calls for papers of the ICDM conference. KAIS will publish the calls for papers of the ICDM conferences once a year without any charges, by the conference organizers' request, to publicize the mutual support for the success of ICDM and KAIS.
