[PVS] Call For Contest Participation (ICDM 2010)

ICDM DM Contest: "Road Traffic Forecasting for Intelligent GPS Navigation"
Web page: http://tunedit.org/challenge/IEEE-ICDM-2010

IEEE ICDM 2010 Data Mining Contest is starting now. Everyone is invited to
participate. The task is to predict city traffic based on measurements from
Automatic Traffic Recorders or real-time notifications from in-car GPS
navigators. Best solutions will be awarded with prizes worth 5,000 USD in

Over the last century, number of cars engaged in vehicular traffic has
increased rapidly, causing many difficulties for all citizens: traffic jams,
large and unpredictable communication delays, pollution etc. Excessive
traffic became a civilization problem that affects everyone who lives in a
city of 50,000 or larger, anywhere in the world. Complexity of processes
that stand behind traffic flow is so large, that only data mining algorithms
may bring efficient solutions. With the proposed competition, we want to ask
researchers to devise the best possible algorithms that tackle problems of
traffic flow prediction, for the purpose of intelligent driver navigation
and improved city planning.

Please forward this information to your students.

Good luck!
