The KMD Lab is present with two papers at ECML PKDD 2015 in Porto, Portugal. The papers are joint works with colleagues from Germany/abroad.
On Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015:
"Ageing-based Multinomial Naive Bayes Classifiers over Opinionated Data Streams" by Sebastian Wagner, Max Zimmermann, Ntoutsi Eirini, Myra Spiliopoulou
On Thursday, Sept. 10, 2015:
"Optimised Probabilistic Active Learning (OPAL) For Fast, Non-Myopic, Cost-Sensitive Active Classification by Georg Krempl, Daniel Kottke, Vincent Lemaire
Myra Spiliopoulou also organizes the ECML PKDD Demo Track 2015, together with Francesco Bonchi and Jaime Cardoso. The demo spotlight session is on Tuesday, Sept. 8, and the demo presentations are on Tuesday evening and on Thursday evening.
The faculty of computer science Magdeburg has awarded KMD staff member Uli Niemann the faculty's 2014 Student Research Award for the article
U. Niemann, H. Völzke, J.-P. Kühn, and M. Spiliopoulou. Learning and inspecting classification rules from longitudinal epidemiological data to identify predictive features on hepatic steatosis. Expert Systems with Applications, (41)11:5405-5415, Elsevier BV, September 2014.
The article was written within the frame of scientific individual project during Uli's Master study of Business Information Systems and employs data from the Study of Health in Pomerania (SHIP). This work is a cooperation of the KMD research lab with the University Medicine Greifswald.
The prestigious journal Expert Systems with Applications (ESWA) from Elsevier emphasises on artificial intelligence and machine learning methods with a special focus on challenging practical applications. The article was submitted on 25.10.2013 and accepted on 20.02.2014. ESWA has an Impact Factor of 1.965 (2013) and a Five-Year Impact Factor of 2.254.
On 12.10.2017 at 3:15 p.m. in the room G22A-211 the KMD Lab will present topics for:
• Master Seminars - Advanced Topics in KMD
• Bachelor Seminars
• Scientific Team Projects

Under the following links, students will find the project and seminar topics for the winter term 2017 - 2018:
After the presentation you can apply for topics that you find interesting.
Our presentation will be in English, but you are free to choose the language of your report and of the communication with your supervisor between English and German.
All students, who are interested in our topics, are invited.
We are happy to announce that Tommy Hielscher has won the Best Student Paper Award at this year's CBMS (27th International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems 2014) for his paper "Using Participant Similarity for the Classification of Epidemiological Data on Hepatic Steatosis". His work is funded as part of the DFG project IMPRINT and in cooperation with the University of Greifswald.
Congratulations to Tommy!
