In this project, you will be expected to do a comprehensive literature search and survey, select and study a specific topic in one subject area of data mining and its applications in business intelligence and analytics (BIA), and write a research paper on the selected topic by yourself. The research paper you are required to write can be a detailed comprehensive study on some specific topic or the original research work that will have been done by yourself. Requirements and Instructions for the Research Paper: 1. The objective of the paper should be very clear about subject, scope, domain, and the goals to be achieved. 2. The paper should address the important advanced and critical issues in a specific area of data mining and its applications in business intelligence and  analytics.  Your  research  paper  should  emphasize  not  only  breadth  of coverage, but also depth of coverage in the specific area. 3. The research paper should give the measurable conclusions and future research directions (this is your contribution). 4. It might be beneficial to review or browse through about 15 to 20 relevant technical articles before you make decision on the topic of the research project. 5. The research paper can be: a. Literature review papers on data mining techniques and their applications for business intelligence and analytics. 2 b. Study and examination of data mining techniques in depth with technical details. c. Applied research that applies a data mining method to solve a real world application in terms of the domain of BIA. 6. The research paper should reflect the quality at certain academic research level. 7. The paper should be about at least 3000-3500 words double space. 8. The paper should include adequate abstraction or introduction, and reference list. 9. write the paper in your words and statements, and give the names of references, citations, and resources of reference materials if you want to use the statements from other reference articles. 10.From  the  systematic  study  point  of  view,  you  may  want  to  read  a  list  of technical papers from relevant magazines, journals, conference proceedings and theses in the area of the topic you choose. 11. For the format and style of your research paper, make reference to CEC  Dissertation  Guide  (http://cec.nova.edu/doctoral/documents/nsu-cec-dissertation- guides.html), Publication Manual of APA, or the format of ACM and IEEE journal publications. 12.For the title page, include course number, course name, term/date, your name, contact information such as email and phone number.

Title Page In general, the number of words in the title of report should be limited around 10 words if possible. The title page must include, course number, course name, the term date, your name, email, contact information, etc. below the paper title. 2. Abstract The abstract page should summarize the highlight of your project to tell the audience what have been done in the research project. 3. Table of Contents The TOC part should list all the titles of sections and subsections with page numbers. 4.  Introduction This part introduces the audience with necessary information to guide them into the subjects of your research project. 5. Background and Literature Review 6. Statement of the Proposed Research or Study 7 With  the  discussion  in  Background  and  Literature  Review,  the  proposed research and study can be given in the format of, possibly, Problem Statement or  Objective  of  Study  to  indicate  what  to  be  studied,  investigated, researched, and/or achieved from this project. 7. Methodology Based on the Problem Statement and the objective to be achieved, you may want to elaborate the underline methodology to be used in order to fulfill the research task and achieve the goal of the research/study. If possible, provide elaboration of rationales in both depth and width. It is better to use illustrative examples to explain the methodology employed in this project. 8. Experiment Design and Result Analysis Provide  the  details  of  how  experiments  are  designed  and  conducted,  and observation  from  the  experiment.  Analysis  of  experimental  results  are important based on your observation, understanding, interpretation, etc. with some performance analysis methods. 9. Conclusion Summarize your research/study by giving some conclusion from the project, and  may  provide  future  research/study  directions  with  discussion  of potentials. 10.Reference List 11.Appendix (if necessary) For style, make reference to APA Manual, ACM, IEEE publications, CEC Dissertation Guide.
