Discovery Challenge 2003

EuroMISE – Cardio

Here you can get data set STULONG prepared for Discovery Challenge of ECML/PKDD 2003 conference. Discovery Challenge is organized as workshop 8.

STULONG is the data set concerning the twenty years lasting longitudinal study of the risk factors of the atherosclerosis in the population of 1 417 middle aged men. Four data matrices are included.

The goal of the discovery challenge is to get new knowledge from the STULONG data. Especially we are interested in answers to the set of analytical questions.

STULONG data consists of raw data matrices. Various data transformations are necessary before the analysis. We offer both results of some useful transformations and tools for further possible transformations.

The two data matrices of the STULONG data set were used in Discovery Challenge 2002 of ECML/PKDD. Thus there are some former results that can be interesting from the point of view of Discovery Challenge 2003.

You can get answers to frequently asked questions and of course to download the data.

The study (STULONG) was realized at the 2nd Department of Medicine, 1st Faculty of Medicine of Charles University and Charles University Hospital, U nemocnice 2, Prague 2 (head.
