The 17th International Conference on Advanced Data Mining and Applications (ADMA) 6-9 December 2021, Sydney, Australia. The conference aims at bringing together the experts on data mining from around the world and providing a leading international forum for the dissemination of original research findings in data mining, spanning applications, algorithms, software and systems, as well as different applied disciplines with potential in data mining, such as smartphone and social network mining, biomedical science and green computing. ADMA 2021 will promote the same close interaction and collaboration among practitioners and researchers. Published papers will go through a full peer-review process. We invite authors to submit papers on topics of data mining and applications, including but not limited to: Data Mining Theory: 1. Data mining foundations; 2. Grand challenges of data mining; 3.
