ACM Data Mining Camp, March 20

Following last year’s successful unconference on data mining, the Bay Area Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) will again host the 2010 ACM Data Mining Camp on March 20 in San Jose, CA. The event is free and runs from 11:15am – 7:30pm, with an optional 2-hour pre-camp training in the morning. (REvolution Computing is a proud sponsor of this event.)

An unconference is an event where users suggest topics, get together and discuss them in detail. This camp is focused on Data Mining, Analytics, Cloud Computing and the various applications of these technologies. I went along last year, and found it to be a great venue not just to learn about applications of data mining, but also to get a sense of where the action was focused in applications of analytics to large data sets. There were also a lot of interest in, and several presentations about, the R project. Should be a more comfortable venue this year too, with eBay offering space to meet. Use the link below to RSVP and suggest topics for discussion.
