JUNE 04-08, 2012 Valencia, Spain

Held in conjunction with:

The Eleventh International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS2012)

Important dates:

• Electronic submission of full papers: February 28, 2012 March 30, 2012
• Notification of paper acceptance: April 10, 2012
• Camera-ready copies of accepted papers: April 15, 2012

The ADMI workshop provides a premier forum for sharing research and engineering results, as well as potential challenges and prospects encountered in the respective communities and the coupling between agents and data mining. The workshop welcomes theoretical work and applied dissemination aiming to:

  1. exploit agent-enriched data mining and demonstrate how intelligent agent technology can contribute to critical data mining problems in theory and practice;
  2. improve data mining-driven agents and show how data mining can strengthen agent intelligence in research and practical applications;
  3. explore the integration of agents and data mining towards a super-intelligent system;
  4. discuss existing results, new problems, challenges and impact of integration of agent and data mining technologies as applied to highly distributed heterogeneous, including mobile, systems operating in ubiquitous and P2P environments;
  5. identify challenges and directions for future research and development on the synergy between agents and data mining.
