Conference on Data Mining and Warehouses (SiKDD 2002)

October 15, 2002, Ljubljana, Slovenia

---------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------

Held at Multi-conference Information Society IS-2002

Data handling technologies have significantly progressed in the last ten years. The first phases mainly dealing with storing and efficiently accessing the data, resulted in the development of industry delivering tools for handling large databases, standardization of related processes, queering languages, etc. When the data storage was not a primary problem any more the need for improving the database organization resulted in the databases supporting not only transactions but also analytical views of the data. At this point data warehousing with OLAP (On-Line-Analytical-Processing) entered as a usual part of a company information system. The OLAP paradigme stil requires from the user to set well defined questions which is not always easy and possible. This led to the development of Data Mining offering automatic data analysis trying to obtain some new information from the existing data and enabling the user some new insights in the data.
