|Conference: Knowledge Extraction III |
Organized by: Mass Vega Klub
Field: Mathematics, Computer Science
Place: Faculty of Mathematic and Physic, Ljubljana
Description: Knowledge Extraction is an international one-week student event taking place mostly, but not only (there's a final trip), in Ljubljana. This year it is organized for the third time (hence the "III" in the name). The topics covered are applied mathematics and computer science. This year we have set out to make the technical part of the conference really applied. Three real problems with mathematical background encountered in the work of companies will be presented, together with the mathematical and software tools that may be used to solve them. The main part of the conference will be workshops where participants will have a chance to dig into these problems and thus use their mathematical knowledge the way it is used in information technology, industry and other non- academic areas. Of course, the equally important social/cultural/fun part of the conference won't be missing and will include the main sights of Ljubljana, outdoor and indoor activities and the traditional final whole-day trip to the highlights of the central northern region of Slovenia.
Additional information: Time and place The conference will take place (mostly) in Ljubljana, Slovenia, during August 15 to 22, 2004.
