Data Mining around the world ...

Each year national and international educational institutions from over 20 countries take part in the DATA-MINING-CUP (DMC) competition. With this student competition that takes place in spring each year, prudsys AG, one of the leading data mining companies, wants to enthuse domestic and international students for intelligent data analysis (data mining) and challenge them to find the best solution to a data mining problem in competition with others.

The DMC is a team competition. Each educational institution (university, technical university, vocational university etc.) can have two teams (refer to participation conditions for more information). 

The top ten teams will be invited to Berlin for the awards ceremony. At the prudsys personalization summit (for retail), the leading event for news and trends in dynamic omni-channel personalization for retail, students have the chance to exchange ideas with industry experts. This is the perfect opportunity for networking to secure internships, final projects and to enter the workforce.

 Costs for travel to and accommodation in the vibrant metropolis will be covered by prudsys AG for the national and international teams. 

The top three teams will also receive prize money:

1st place: EUR 2,000.00
2nd place: EUR 1,000.00
3rd place: EUR    500.00 

Details of the task will be published on 5 April 2017.
