CAMDA 2001 Conference Call for Posters

CAMDA, a community-wide experiment of microarray data analysis, calls for your participation in 2001. We are inviting original posters related to analysis of the CAMDA 2001 data sets. All submissions must follow these rules:

  • The data set to be analyzed is from the CAMDA 2001 data set(s).
  • You are, however, allowed to present your work at other conferences. 
    Important Dates

Sept. 15, 2001 1 Page abstract due
Oct. 1, 2001 Notification of acceptance to oral and poster presenters
Oct 15-16, 2001 Conference presentation

CAMDA Paper/Presentation Guideline

In contrast to the KDD-cup 2001 contest, where no detailed knowledge of biology is necessary in the submission, the CAMDA challenge encourages and emphasizes discussions of biological relevance in additional to the data mining methodology. The submitted contributions are encouraged to include:

  • The proposed analytical objective (problems to be solved).
  • A brief summary of the analytical effort (how to solve the problem).
    This may include the data preprocessing tasks such as data normalization, and data extraction, data mining steps and algorithms used, as well as the evaluation criteria. 
  • Interpretation of results and presentation of discoveries.
    This will help to present an easier framework for comparisons of different approaches.
  • Discussion of the merits, assumptions, and limitations of your approach.
  • Conclusions.

Questions concerning the CAMDA 01 Call for Papers should be directed to:
