ECML/PKDD 2005 Discovery Challenge
Call for Contributions

The Discovery Challenge will be held as a workshop at the 16th
ECML + 9th PKDD conference, October 3-7, 2005, Porto, Portugal.

The Discovery Challenge constitutes a collection of data and problems
as a common ground for better comparisons and discussions of the
applicability of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) methods on
real-world problems with respect to both KDD and application viewpoints.
The main goals of the Discovery Challenge are:
- stimulate an open view of knowledge and discovery
- stimulate a collaborative approach to KDD and research on unification
of both different forms of knowledge and discovery
- integrate into KDD an emphasis on business problems and solutions
to those problems

Three data sets
- medical data (chronic hepatitis),
- gene expression data (SAGE data produced from human cells),
- web server log data (3 millions records, each record being a single page
view),
are available to prospective participants for download and
analysis. The deadline for submissions is July, 25.
