Springer book reporting on Dicode results is out!

Springer has just published a book reporting on research carried out within the context of the Dicode project. The book's title is “Mastering Data-Intensive Collaboration and Decision Making: Cutting-edge research and practical applications in the Dicode project” (226 p., 98 illus., details at: It has been published under Springer's "Studies in Big Data" Series.

Cooperation with KEOD 2013 Conference

Dicode has established an "in cooperation" status with the organizers of KEOD 2013 - 5th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Ontology Development. For more information:

I-Pat: Mining and exploiting interpretable local patterns - A Dicode workshop at ECML-PKDD 2012

Local patterns, like itemsets, correlations, contrast sets or subgroups, stand out from other data mining tools by their descriptive nature, which makes them directly interpretable by end users like clinicians, fraud experts or analysts. In this workshop, we wish to investigate typical use cases and key requirements for the successful usage of local pattern mining in applications where next to the statistical performance of models, the understandability and interestingness of the models is the key success factor.

Submissions due: June 29, 2012

Collaboration with Granatum EU project

In the context of dicoSyn 2012, a keynote titled “Enhancing a collaboration space with social media features to support data-intensive collaboration” was given by Prof. Wolfgang Prinz, who is the Project Coordinator of the EU-funded Granatum project ( In his talk, Prof. Prinz presented the approach and challenges of this project, which aims at the development of a cooperation environment for chemoprevention researchers. This action initiated the establishment of a close collaboration between the Dicode and Granatum EU projects.

News from dicoSyn 2012

The first scientific Dicode workshop, namely "dicoSyn 2012: Mastering Data-Intensive Collaboration through the Synergy of Human and Machine Reasoning" ( took place in Seattle, in the context of CSCW 2012 (Feb 12, 2012). Eight papers were presented, thus bringing together researchers and practitioners from different scientific fields and research communities to further explore the synergy between human and machine intelligence.

dicoSyn 2012 - A Dicode workshop at CSCW 2012 / submissions due: December 2, 2011

Contemporary collaboration settings are often associated with huge, ever-increasing amounts of multiple types of data, which may vary in terms of relevance, subjectivity and importance, ranging from individual opinions to broadly accepted practices. In such settings, collective sense making is crucial for well-informed decision making. This sense making process may both utilize and provide input to intelligent information analysis tools.

Dicode @ the 10th IEEE International Workshop on Biomedical Engineering

A paper entitled “Facilitating Scientific Collaboration in Data-Intensive Biomedical Settings”, authored by Nikos Karacapilidis, Manolis Tzagarakis, Spyros Christodoulou and Georgia Tsiliki, was presented at the 10th IEEE International Workshop on Biomedical Engineering (10BioEng), which took place in Kos Island, Greece (5-7 October 2011). Through a particular collaboration scenario, this paper explores various possibilities and challenges of managing biomedical collaboration with the use of the foreseen Dicode services.
