KDD-Cup 2004 (pre-announcement)

The KDD-Cup 2004 knowledge discovery and data mining
competition will be held in conjunction with the tenth
annual ACM SIGKDD conference. The challenge tasks are
selected to be interesting to participants from both
academia and industry. In particular, we encourage the
participation of students.

This year's competition will focus on data-mining for
a variety of performance criteria such as Accuracy,
Squared Error, Cross Entropy, ROC Area, and Probability
Calibration. The specific tasks, and two datasets from
the areas of bioinformatics and quantum physics, will
be made available the week of April 26, 2004. Stay
tuned to http://www.acm.org/sigkdd/kdd2004/cup.html
for more information.

We are looking forward to an interesting competition
and encourage your participation.
