What are the most significant annual Data Mining conferences?

Rules:

  1. One conference per answer
  2. Include a link to the conference

    $\begingroup$ I downvoted this because it encourages uninformative one-line answers, leading merely to a collection of links with little additional value. If respondents were to explain, even briefly, why their proposed conferences were "significant," this thread would have tremendously greater value. $\endgroup$ – whuber Nov 17 '11 at 15:47
  • $\begingroup$ Plus, it is completely redundant to the known rankings of such conferences. For example Microsoft Academic: academic.research.microsoft.com/… $\endgroup$ – Has QUIT--Anony-Mousse Dec 6 '11 at 9:06
  • $\begingroup$ Oh, and third, people here probably don't make the distinction between machine-learning, artificial intelligence and data mining (which does include data management aspects and only uses ML and AI). Just because it's popular to call ML also "data mining" doesn't make this sensible. $\endgroup$ – Has QUIT--Anony-Mousse Dec 6 '11 at 9:07

    $\begingroup$ I don't think NIPS is a really a data mining conference, it is a machine learning and (decreasingly) computational neuroscience conference. $\endgroup$ – Dikran Marsupial Dec 15 '10 at 14:42

Strata Conference:

Strata Conference is for developers, data scientists, data analysts, and other data professionals.

Strata Conference covers the latest and best tools and technologies for this new discipline, along the entire data supply chain—from gathering, cleaning, analyzing, and storing data to communicating data intelligence effectively. With hardcore technical sessions, case studies, and provocative reports from the leading edge, Strata Conference showcases the people, tools, and technologies that make big data work.

Not sure I'd quite classify Strata as "data mining" (perhaps "how to use data in the industry", instead), but data mining is certainly a part of it.

  • $\begingroup$ +1 for two reasons: first, it is the only reply (so far) to explain the merits of its nomination, and second, despite the barrage of vague business-speak in the blurb ("data supply chain," "data intelligence," "hardcore," "leading edge"), a look at the conference schedule, the topics, and the presenters reveals the involvement of substantial, serious players from government (NASA, e.g.) as well as industry. It's very top-heavy in presentations from software and services purveyors, though, suggesting an orientation toward marketing commercial solutions. $\endgroup$ – whuber Nov 17 '11 at 15:52
