About the book

The abundance of data in various fields including medical, financial, business, banking, cyberworld, social science, etc. has been an issue in the recent past and is expected to become worse in future. Manual analysis of such large volume of data is difficult and there is the need to automate the data analysis. Data mining includes intelligent supporting techniques in transforming the big data into useful information and knowledge. Researchers and practitioners in areas such as statistics, pattern recognition, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and visualization are contributing to the field of data mining for better utilization of the data. Data mining finds applications in the entire spectrum of science and technology, including basic sciences, life sciences and medicine, social, economic, and cognitive sciences, as well as engineering and computers.

This book on Data Mining aims to include topics from the very basics to advanced techniques, and the present-day applications in this field. Various applications and research frontiers in data mining with algorithms and implementation details for use in the real-world are encouraged.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Mia Vulovic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
