The Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining Working Group of the American Medical Information Association (AMIA) is announcing its second annual data mining competition for the purpose of studying best practices related to knowledge discovery in health care data. This year’s data set is the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). This is a juried, international data mining competition open to students of any subject or discipline. Four winning individuals or teams will be invited to present their results at the AMIA 2008 Annual Symposium. (No funds for travel or Symposium registration will be provided). Final submissions for the competition are due to the moderator by midnight, September 15, 2008, MDT. Winners of the contest will be invited to present their work at the AMIA Annual Symposium in a panel sponsored by the Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining Working Group. Winners will be selected and recognized by an international panel of judges associated with the KDDM-WG. Please visit http://www.amia.org/mbrcenter/wg/kddm/contest.asp for more details.

Eligibility

This contest is open to student members of the American Medical Informatics Association, planning to attend the AMIA 2008 Annual Symposium. However, students may hail from any subject or discipline. For information on joining AMIA, please visit: http://www.amia.org/mbrcenter/mbrshp/ . The work can be completed by an individual or group, but only one individual will present at the symposium for a winning team.

Participation in the Contest

As a contestant, you are invited to produce meaningful information/ knowledge with knowledge discovery or data mining approaches of your choice, using the publicly available National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) data.

The latest data release (as of this announcement) is 2005-2006, but there is no restriction on the specific data release to be used, and entries may utilize multiple data releases.

Both applied and methodological entries are appropriate. Final submissions for the competition are due to the moderator by midnight, September 15, 2008, MDT (U.S. Mountain Daylight Time). Winners will be selected and recognized by an international panel of judges associated with the KDDM-WG.
