Subject: PHM DATA Challenge Problem

The PHM Data Challenge is a competition open to all potential attendees of International Conference on Prognostics and Health Management 2008, www.phmconf.org, Denver, CO, Oct 6-9, 2008.

The goal is to estimate remaining life of an unspecified component using data-driven techniques. Teams may be comprised of one or more researchers. One winner from each of three categories will be determined on the basis of score. The categories are:

  • Professional: open to anyone, (including mixed teams).
  • Student: open to any team with all members enrolled as full time students during the spring 2008 semester.
  • IEEE GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade): open to any team comprised solely of IEEE members who received their first professional degree after March 1998. See http://www.ieee.org/web/membership/gold/index.html for more information on the IEEE GOLD program.
Teams must declare what category they belong to when submitting results. There is a cash prize of $2500 for the top entrant from each category that both attends the conference and presents an invited paper on their winning technique. These papers will be presented in a dedicated session. Submission of the challenge special session papers is outside the regular paper submission process and follows its own schedule. The organizers of the contest reserve the right to both modify these rules and disqualify any team at their discretion
