Call for Papers: Special Issue on Agents and Data Mining

In the last decade, agents and data mining have emerged as two of the 
most vigorous areas in information technology. The nature and 
complementarity of both areas foreshows an emerging trend—the increasing 
interaction and integration between agents and data mining. A symbiotic 
relationship could significantly strengthen each side’s progress and 
trigger new R&D challenges and prospects toward the advancement of 
next-generation intelligent technologies and systems as well as the 
enrichment of integrated intelligence and other emergent aspects.
This special issue aspires to report pioneering action on this critical 
topic and aims to encourage the interaction between agents and data 
mining toward mutual enhancement and superintelligent techniques and 
synergism. It will bring together researchers and industry practitioners 
from both areas to share R&D results and discuss existing and emerging 
theoretical and applied problems in the interaction and evolution of 
agents and data mining.

Topic areas include (but aren’t limited to):
* challenges and prospects of agents and data mining interaction,
* agent-enriched knowledge discovery and data mining,
* data-mining-driven agent intelligence enhancement,
* agent-mining symbiosis performance evaluation, and
* emerging intelligent applications and systems.
