About these proceedings
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed proceedings of the PAKDD 2012 International Workshops: Third Workshop on Data Mining for Healthcare Management (DMHM 2012), First Workshop on Geospatial Information and Documents (GeoDoc 2012), First Workshop on Multi-view data, High-dimensionality, External Knowledge: Striving for a Unified Approach to Clustering (3Clust 2012), and the Second Doctoral Symposium on Data Mining (DSDM 2012); held in conjunction with the 16th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (PAKDD 2012), in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, May/June 2012.
The 12 revised papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. DMHM 2012 aimed at providing a common platform for the discussion of challenging issues and potential techniques in this emerging field of data mining for health care management; 3Clust 2012 focused on solving emerging problems such as clustering ensembles, semi-supervised clustering, subspace/projective clustering, co-clustering, and multi-view clustering; GeoDoc 2012 highlighted the formalization of geospatial concepts and relationships with a focus on the extraction of geospatial relations in free text datasets to offer to the database community a unified framework for geodata discovery; and DSDM 2012 provided the opportunity for Ph.D. students and junior researchers to discuss their work on data mining foundations, techniques and applications.
