CDMC2013: Cybersecurity Data Mining Competition
The focus of this competition is on application of knowledge discovery techniques for protecting personal computer information by means of detection, preventive measures, and responding to various attacks.
Objectives The purpose of the International Cybersecurity Data Mining Competition is to increase awareness of Cybersecurity and the potential of industrial applications, and give young researchers exposure to the main issues related to the topic and to ongoing work in this area. The focus of this competition is on string sequences analysis towards application of knowledge discovery techniques for protecting personal computer information by means of detection, preventive measures, and responding to various attacks.
Tasks and Data
- eNews Categorization. The aim is to classify text data into business, entertainment, sport, technology, and travel 5 categories.
- Intrusion Detection. The aim is to perform network intrusion detection over data collected from a real IDS deployed in Korea.
- Packer Identification. The aim is to perform packer identification for given portable executable (PE) files.
- Multi-task Pattern Recognition. The aim is to perform effective knowledge transfer for 3 correlated multi-task pattern recognition.
Prizes and Awards
We have set cash prizes for the competition. The top ranking teams of all 3 data mining tasks will be eligible to win a cash prize of NZ $3000. Additional prizes may be available as travel grants for deserving participants to help them attend the ICONIP2013 conference and/or the DMC2013 workshop.
Paper submissions and publications
The competition is associated with the 6th International Workshop on Data Mining and Cybersecurity (DMC2013), which is an associated event to the 20th International Conference on Neural Information Processing (ICONIP2013), Daegu, Korea, November 3-7, 2013. The competition is open to anyone who would like to register.
Note that author can submit your paper to DMC2013 workshop through the following online submission gate and choose the ‘Workshop’ category, and tick the group of ‘Workshop: CDMC 2013’.
Deadline for submission
