Participants about the tutorial days ...

This year's Industrial Conference on Data Mining ICDM 2001 has been a successful combination of seminar and exchange of ideas with international experts.

On the first day of the conference fundamentals and a deepened knowledge on data mining were conveyed to me in an illustrative way. This was so important because the professional background of the participants was very diverse. The product manager, the head of department and the adviser were assembled. Thus all of them could polish up their knowledge or deepen it. The referees, Mrs. Ahlemeyer-Stubbe and Dr. Perner, managed to present and convey the subject in an interesting and illustrative way.

On the second day international experts from Sweden, England, the United States, Switzerland and Japan reported on concrete fields of application of data mining. For me this was of particular interest because thus the versatility of the possibilities of application of data mining became clear to me. Data mining is used everywhere, be it in the recognition of texts, the support of medical analyses, the management of knowledge or the determination of the quality of water. Very exciting!

The conference ended with a lot of additional knowledge acquired, stimulations, contacts.

I am already looking forward to next year's meeting
