4th Italian Workshop on Machine Learning and Data Mining (MLDM.it 2015)

Following the success of the first three editions of the Italian Workshop on Machine Learning and Data Mining at the AI*IA Symposiums and AI*IA Conferences on Artificial Intelligence, this workshop aims at bringing together researchers actively involved in the fields of machine learning, data mining, pattern recognition, and knowledge discovery.

During the workshop, researchers will have the opportunity to present their recent results and discuss problems and challenges relevant to the community. Following the tradition of MLDM.it, presentations are upon invitation. Attendance to MLDM is open to all the AI*IA Conference participants.

The meeting is organized by the AI*IA Working Group on Machine Learning and Data Mining whose general goal is to promote Italian scientific activities in the field of machine learning and data mining, and foster collaborations between research groups.

Workshop Day: September 22nd, 2015


MLDM.it will be held in Main Room - First Floor, Palazzo Trotti Mosti (Trotti Mosti Palace): Corso Ercole I d'Este, 37 - Building Plan
