Since 2000 the Data-Mining-Cup is an annual event where students can compare their abilities in solving a real-life data mining task and win nice prices. (2005, 2004...)
Connecting to our successes in 2004 and 2005 we organize a lab aiming at participation in the data mining cup 2006.
The competition starts on April 12 and ends on May 31. In advance to the competition we will start with a rough introduction into the topic and some introductory assignments to get familiar to the tools and methods in data mining. The award ceremony will take place in Chemnitz from June 27 to 29 and in the last years the five best ranked students were invited.
It is scheduled to start with introduction and introductory assignments in March. The date will be published to participants in advance and there will be approximately weekly meetings to coordinate cooperation and knowledge exchange.
To get a certificate it is required to participate in the weekly meetings, to deal with the introductory tasks, and to create a solution for the task of the data mining cup 2006. We expect the participants to be highly motivated and work very autonomous. Furthermore we require that some basic data mining algorithms are self implemented.Literature
