Call For Papers


The data mining competition "Topical Classification of Biomedical Research Papers", a special event of Joint Rough Sets Symposium (JRS 2012), has started now. The task is to design most accurate algorithm for multi-label classification of scientific publications in biomedicine. There are 20,000 samples available for analysis, each comprising 25,640 attributes. Money prizes worth $1,500 will be awarded to the most successful teams. The contest is organized by a research team from University of Warsaw, Poland, and sponsored by Southwest Jiaotong University, China.

Apart from money prizes for the top teams, authors of selected solutions will be invited to prepare papers for presentation at JRS 2012 special session devoted to the competition and for inclusion in conference proceedings.

This challenge may be appealing to all data mining practitioners due to its strong relations with well-founded subjects: generalized decision rules induction, feature extraction, soft and rough computing, semantic text mining, scalable classification methods.

Important dates:

- Jan 2, 2012: start of the challenge, data sets become available
- Mar 30, 2012: deadline for submitting predictions
- Apr 2, 2012: deadline for submitting reports
- Apr 6, 2012: publication of final results
- May 10, 2012: deadline for submitting camera-ready papers for JRS
