KDNet Symposium on Knowledge-Based Services for the Public Sector Bonn,
Germany, June 3-4, 2004 http://symposium.kdnet.org/


KDNet, the European Knowledge Discovery Network of Excellence, is
organizing a symposium to present Knowledge Discovery (KD) research
projects and applications aimed at information management in the public
sector. The symposium is structured in a number of workshops concerning
different aspects of KD in the public sector. Currently, three workshops
and an exposition for the demos are scheduled. Workshops are:

1. KNOWLEDGE DISCOVERY IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL DOMAIN
2. MINING OFFICIAL DATA
3. KNOWLEDGE-BASED SYSTEMS AND SERVICES FOR HEALTH CARE

The symposium will maintain a balance between theoretical issues and
descriptions of case studies to promote synergy between theory and
practice. Therefore, the target group is that of researchers and
applicants of KD tools from the academia, research institutions,
government organisations and industry. The meeting will allow
participants to learn about the many different applications of KD in the
public sector.
