KDD Cup 2016 Has Started!

The KDD Cup, the most prestigious competition in KDD, is now under way. This year's competition aims at addressing a long-standing puzzle in academic society: how to rank an academic institution? It challenges the KDD Community to develop models to rank academic institutions based on their potential paper acceptance in the upcoming top-tier conferences. In effect, given a research field, we are challenging the KDD Cup community to jointly develop data mining techniques to identify the best research institutions based on their publications and how they are cited in research articles. Join us.
