The data mining competition "Topical Classification of Biomedical 
Research Papers", a special event of Joint Rough Sets Symposium (JRS 
2012), has started now. The task is to design most accurate algorithm 
for multi-label classification of scientific publications in 
biomedicine. There are 20,000 samples available for analysis, each 
comprising 25,640 attributes. Money prizes worth $1,500 will be awarded 
to the most successful teams. The contest is organized by a research 
team from University of Warsaw, Poland, and sponsored by Southwest 
Jiaotong University, China.

Apart from money prizes for the top teams, authors of selected solutions 
will be invited to prepare papers for presentation at JRS 2012 special 
session devoted to the competition and for inclusion in conference 

This challenge may be appealing to all data mining practitioners due to 
its strong relations with well-founded subjects: generalized decision 
rules induction, feature extraction, soft and rough computing, semantic 
text mining, scalable classification methods.

Important dates:

- Jan 2, 2012: start of the challenge, data sets become available
- Mar 30, 2012: deadline for submitting predictions
- Apr 2, 2012: deadline for submitting reports
- Apr 6, 2012: publication of final results
- May 10, 2012: deadline for submitting camera-ready papers for JRS
