     Post-Mining of Association Rules: Techniques for 
              Effective Knowledge Extraction

  A book edited by Dr. Yanchang Zhao, Prof. Chengqi Zhang 
                   and Dr. Longbing Cao
    To be published by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group)
  http://www-staff.it.uts.edu.au/~yczhao/IGI-book/CFC.htm
***********************************************************


Introduction
------------
There are often a huge number of association rules
discovered in a data mining practice, making it difficult
for users to identify those that are of particular interest 
to them. Therefore, it is important to remove insignificant 
rules and prune redundancy as well as summarize, visualize
and post-mine the discovered rules. Moreover, the
information we can get from traditional association rules
is very limited, so new forms of association rules are
needed to discover useful and actionable knowledge. The
book aims to present a whole picture of the post-analysis,
summarization and new forms of association rules and
introduce the up-to-date research on the above topics to
extract useful knowledge from a large number of discovered
association rules.


The Overall Objective of the Book
---------------------------------
The book will focus on the post-analysis of association
rules to extract useful and actionable knowledge from a
large number of discovered rules. It will cover interest, 
redundancy, post-mining, summarization, presentation and
visualization of association rules, as well as novel forms
and new trends of association rules. It will not only 
present academia with a systematic view of the current
research progress on the above topics, but it will also
help industry learn from the ideas and apply them to find
actionable knowledge in real-world applications.


The Target Audience
-------------------
The audience of this book will be researchers in the field
of data mining, postgraduate students who are interested
in data mining, and industry data miners. Note that the
audience is not limited to those interested in association
rules because the post-mining of association rules involves
clustering, classification and many other techniques of
data mining, as well as statistics and artificial
intelligence, which are actually beyond association rule
mining itself.


Recommended topics include, but not limited to:
-----------------------------------------------
* Subjective & objective interestingness
* Removing redundancy in association rules
* Summarization and generalization of association rules
* Presentation and visualization of association rules
* Maintenance of association rules
* Post-mining of association rules, e.g., clustering
  association rules 
* Class association rules and association classifier
* Quantitative association rules and inter-transaction
  association rules 
* New forms/challenges/trends of association rules and
  association mining
