TunedIT to organize IEEE ICDM '10 Contest (GPS navigation)

          

Contest will organized on the TunedIT platform, and the task will be to predict road traffic congestion and model the process of traffic jams formation in the city of Warsaw, Poland.

TunedIT will organize IEEE ICDM '10 Contest, in the area of GPS car navigation

TunedIT Today the organizers of the 10th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM) announced that the Data Mining Contest affiliated with ICDM will be organized on TunedIT platform by the team of researchers from University of Warsaw, whose proposal was ranked the highest.

The tasks will be to predict road traffic congestion and model the process of traffic jams formation in the city of Warsaw, Poland. Data will have a form of simulated measurements from Automatic Traffic Recorders or real-time stream of notifications sent by individual drivers from their GPS navigators. Prizes worth at least $5,000 will be awarded to the winners. The competition will start in the end of June and last till September 2010.

Companies and other interested parties are invited to become sponsors of the contest, as industrial partners. Please contact the Chair of the contest for more details: marcin.wojnarski@tunedit.org.

The IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM) has established itself as the world's premier research conference in data mining. The 10th edition of ICDM (ICDM '10) provides a leading forum for presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative, practical development experiences. The conference covers all aspects of data mining, including algorithms, software and systems, and applications. In addition, ICDM draws researchers and application developers from a wide range of data mining related areas such as statistics, machine learning, pattern recognition, databases and data warehousing, data visualization, knowledge-based systems, and high performance computing. ICDM 2010 will be held in Sydney, Australia on December 13-17.

TunedIT is a web platform for data mining researchers and practitioners. It delivers a set of tools - TunedIT Research - that facilitate experimental investigation and scientific collaboration in the field of data mining and machine learning, especially the automation of experiments and generation of reproducible experimental results. TunedIT comprises also the TunedIT Challenges platform for organization of data mining competitions, which was recently opened up for all professors and tutors who'd like to organize a contest for their student groups, instead of traditional assignments.
