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
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
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:
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.
