AAIA'15 Data Mining Competition - CALL FOR PARTICIPATION


AAIA’15 Data Mining Competition at the Knowledge Pit


We are happy to announce that this year’s edition of a data mining 
competition associated with 10th International Symposium on Advances in 
Artificial Intelligence and Applications (AAIA’15) was launched earlier 
this week. AAIA'15 is held as part of the FedCSIS 2015 - an annual 
international multi-conference organized by the Polish Information 
Processing Society (PTI) in technical cooperation with the IEEE Region 
8, IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Poland Section Computer Society Chapter, 
IEEE Poland (Gdansk) Section Computer Society Chapter, IEEE-CIS Poland 
Section Chapter, ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing, ACM 
Lodz Chapter, IEEE SMC Technical Committee on Computational Collective 
Intelligence, European Alliance for Innovation, Committee of Computer 
Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Polish Operational and 
Systems Research Society, Eastern Cluster ICT Poland, and Mazovia 
Cluster ICT.

As in the previous year,  the main topic of the competition is related 
to a challenge of increasing firefighter safety and supporting decisions 
of commanders during fire & rescue actions. In particular, we would like 
to ask participants to devise efficient solutions for a task of 
automatic recognition of firefighter activities.

In the competition we provide a data set containing readings from a body 
sensor network developed within ICRA project for a purpose of real-time 
screening of firefighters’ vital functions and kinematics. The data were 
obtained during training exercises conducted in Main School of Fire 
Service in Warsaw and labelled with tags describing a posture and 
activity of the firefighters. The task for participants is to predict 
labels for short time series of our sensor readings.

Prizes worth over 4,000 PLN will be awarded to the most successful teams 
participating in the competition by our main sponsor – Polish 
Information Processing Society (PTI). We also plan to invite authors of 
selected solutions to prepare extended descriptions of their approaches 
in a form of conference papers. Those articles will be reviewed by 
Organization Committee members and treated as regular AAIA’15 
submissions (including indexation in the Thomson Reuters Web of Science, 
DBLP, Scopus and other portals).
