From the recently released blueprint of the human genome to the ongoing search for signs of extraterrestrial intelligence via radio signals, the avalanche of data being produced far outstrips our ability to analyze it.

Exploring ways to close this data gap will be the subject of "The First International Conference on Data Mining"-a three-day conference April 5-7, cosponsored by the University of Illinois at Chicago.

The conference will feature talks and tutorials on recent academic research in data mining, as well as innovative uses of data mining for a variety of scientific, engineering and business problems. Updates on new data-mining software and systems will also be available. Researchers from scientific fields such as astronomy, computer science, environmental studies and genetics will share the conference spotlight with talks on how data scanned from commercial bar coding and Internet e-commerce is being used and interpreted.

The conference, organized by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, will take place at the Midland Hotel, 172 W. Adams St. Society members pay a $310 fee, nonmembers $390 and students $75.
