First International Workshop on

Data Mining Lessons Learned


Held in conjunction with ICML-2002


Journal, conference and workshop papers seldom report on failures, yet reported failures are crucial for increasing awareness of which approach to use in which situations. At conferences we often hear of successful applications, but we rarely hear of steps leading to success, steps that failed, and representation choices that were critical to success. In addition, papers rarely include expert evaluations of results. The purpose of this workshop is to assemble data mining practitioners and to gather experience from successful and unsuccessful data mining endeavors. We seek to learn from successes (evaluated by domain experts) and, most importantly, from failed data mining endeavors (why was an approach not successful, what can dataminers learn from this experience). The main aim is to start gathering the lessons learned.
