A workshop in conjunction with AIME 07 in Amsterdam, Netherlands
Carlo Combi and Allan Tucker (chairs)

Organized in collaboration with Intelligent Data Analysis and Data Mining Workgroup of International Medical Informatics Association, and Knowledge Discovery & Data Mining SIG of American Medical Informatics Association

IDAMAP-2007, a workshop on intelligent data analysis in biomedicine and pharmacology, will be held at the Rode Head, Amsterdam, Netherlands, in conjunction with the 11th Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME 07).

The IDAMAP workshop series is devoted to computational methods for data analysis in medicine, biology and pharmacology that present results of analysis in the form communicable to domain experts and that somehow exploit knowledge of the problem domain. Such knowledge may be available at different stages of the data-analysis and model-building process. Typical methods include data visualization, data exploration, machine learning, and data mining. This year's IDAMAP will spend specific, although not exclusive, attention to classification and feature selection methods.

Gathering in an informal setting, workshop participants will have the opportunity to meet and discuss selected technical topics in an atmosphere which fosters the active exchange of ideas among researchers and practitioners. The workshop is intended to be a genuinely interactive event and not a mini-conference, thus ample time will be allotted for general discussion.
