5th Dicode Consortium Meeting @ Leeds, 1-2 October 2012

In the framework of the 5th (24-month) Dicode Consortium meeting, UoL will host all project partners in Leeds, UK, in October 1-2, 2012. Core meeting activities will incοrporate demos of usage scenarios from the three Dicode use cases.

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.

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.

Best Research Paper Award!

The paper entitled “Building on the synergy of machine and human reasoning to tackle data-intensive collaboration and decision making” (authored by Nikos Karacapilidis, Stefan Rüping, Manolis Tzagarakis, Axel Poigné and Spyros Christodoulou), which reports on the Dicode approach, was judged worthy of the “Best Research Paper Award” at the KES 3rd International Conference on Intelligent Decision Technologies (July 2011, Piraeus, Greece).
