The field of statistical data mining is emerging as a new, fundamental research area with important applications to science, biology, engineering, medicine, business and education. Data mining attempts to extract knowledge from large data sets by using highly intelligent statistical modeling techniques and computational algorithms to search for hidden patterns, changes, associations and anomalies.

The conference chairman will be Hamparsum Bozdogan, Toby & Brenda McKenzie Professor in the Department of Statistics, Operations and Management Science in UT’s College of Business Administration. Conference sponsors include UT’s College of Business Administration, the Department of Statistics, Operations and Management Science, and UT Research Office and Science Alliance.

The goal of International Conference on Multivariate Statistical Modeling and High Dimensional Data Mining is to allow international experts in the field to share the latest innovations in data mining research. Experts from the United States, Canada, Turkey, Estonia, France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, India, Japan, the United Kingdom, Spain, the Middle East, Russia and South Africa are expected to attend.
