The 4th International Cybersecurity Data Mining Competition (CDMC2013)
Technical co-sponsorship: Unitec, AUT, NICT, NAIST, APNNA, ENNS, INNS
The competition is associated with the 6th International Workshop on Data Mining and Cybersecurity (DMC2013), which is an associated event to the 20th International Conference on Neural Information Processing (ICONIP2013), Daegu, Korea, November 3-7, 2013. The competition is open to anyone who would like to register.
Daegu is a city with a long history of Korean tradition and a rich culturalheritage. It is located in the southeastern area of the Korean Peninsula with apopulation of two and a half million. The City of Daegu is strong in such industriesas fashion and textiles, machinery and optical products. The most well-known sight ofthe city is the stone Buddha called Gatbawi on the top of Gwanbong, Palgongsan. It isfamous for its stone gat (Korean traditional hat). The workshop will be held on November 3, 2013 in Daegu, Korea.
The purpose of the 2013 ICONIP Cybersecurity Data Mining Competition is to increase awareness of Cybersecurity and the potential of industrial applications, and give young researchers exposure to the main issues related to the topic and to ongoing work in this area. The focus of this competition is on string sequences analysis towards application of knowledge discovery techniques for protecting personal computer information by means of detection, preventive measures, and responding to various attacks.
Prizes and Awards:
We have set cash prizes for the competition. The top ranking teams of all 3 data mining tasks will be eligible to win a cash prize of NZ $3000. Additional prizes may be available as travel grants for deserving participants to help them attend the ICONIP2013 conference and/or the DMC2013 workshop.
Paper submissions and publications:
Paper submissions and publications: Prospective authors are invited to submit original, high quality manuscripts of up to eight A4-pages in the track of (A) Data Mining and Machine Learning Methods; and (B) Cybersecurity Data Mining Systems and Applications. The submission must conform to the Springer LNCS format and be performed through the ICONIP2013 online submission gate. All papers accepted for workshop will be published in the proceeding of ICONIP2013 with Lecture Notes in Computer Science Springer. Selected and extended papers will be recommended for publication in Memetic Computing Springer, or IEICE Transactions Journals, or in the ICONIP2013 special issues of Neurocomputing and Neural Computing and Applications.
Note that submission of a paper to DMC2013 is not a compulsory condition for your participation of CDMC2013 competition.
Deadline for submission:
