AAIA'17 Data Mining Challenge is the fourth data mining competition organized within the framework of International Symposium Advances in Artificial Intelligence and Applications. This time, the task is to come up with an efficient prediction model which would help AI to play the game of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.

Special session

As in previous years, a special session devoted to the competition will be held at the conference. We will invite authors of selected reports to extend them for publication in the conference proceedings (after reviews by Organizing Committee members) and presentation at the conference. The publications will be treated as short papers and will be indexed by IEEE Digital Library and Web of Science. The invited teams will be chosen based on their final rank, innovativeness of their approach and quality of the submitted report.


Authors of the top-ranked solutions (based on the final evaluation scores) will be awarded prizes funded by our sponsors (Silver Bullet Solutions and PTI):

  • First Prize: 1000 USD + one free FedCSIS'17 conference registration,
  • Second Prize: 500 USD + one free FedCSIS'17 conference registration,
  • Third Prize: one free FedCSIS'17 conference registration.
