1st International Workshop on AI Methods in Data Mining Challenges (DMGATE'18)
Poznań, Poland, 9 - 12 September, 2018
The scope of DMGATE is to establish a forum for data scientists working at the edge of academic research and commercial applications, keen on developing and using AI-based methods in data mining projects and challenges. DMGATE continues the tradition of data mining competitions organized at FedCSIS.
This year’s competition starts on April 3 and lasts until May 7. The task is to predict win-rates of Hearthstone decks used by players with various skill and experience. Details are available here.
As usual, competition winners will be granted with financial awards and/or free conference registration. Moreover, we will invite a small group of authors of the most interesting competition solutions to submit papers that will be reviewed on special fast-track basis.
Starting from this year, we also welcome regular paper submissions describing new approaches for analyzing data sets published online during previous competitions. These papers will be peer-reviewed by top specialists in the area of data science and – if accepted – they will be presented at the DMGATE session together with the papers prepared by this year’s competition winners.
We believe that it is highly important for the data science community to keep up the discussion on both current and past data mining competitions, in order to jointly develop a firm knowledge base on how to apply AI-based data mining methods in real life.
