Other Activities

Reviewing, Organisation and Resources

I have been on program committees for conferences such as KDD, CIKM, EMCL PKDD, BNAIC and Benelearn, was sponsor chair for PKDD and organized workshops at KDD and ACE, and organized Benelearn 2011 (conference chair).

I have also organized data mining competitions (Benelearn '99 competition, Coil Challenge 2000) based on The Insurance Company (TIC) Benchmark, which has been contributed to the UCI KDD repository.
