Session 1: Big data

Vagelis Papalexakis: Big Data Tutorial, I-II

Morten Rasmussen: We love to take pictures of our kids; how can we use photos to improve their medical care?

Giorgio Tomasi: How do we incorporate chemical knowledge to separate good data from bad as a preprocessing step?

Kristian Liland: Big Data is already knocking on the door of chemometrics

Mary Beth Seasholz: Videos – available on request


Session 2: Modeling strategies

Tormod Næs: A discussion of different modelling paradigms and strategies in statistics and chemometrics

Marta Bevilacqua: Local Modeling in dealing with classification issues

Marina Cocchi: Class-modelling vs discriminant classification

Ulf Indahl: Seeking subspaces suitable for predictive modeling by the ‘classical’ approaches to regression and classification


Session 3: Dealing with Dirty Data

Alberto Ferrer: Dealing with Dirty Data Session: Introduction and motivation / Grey Modelling and Dirty Data

Ellen F Mosleth: A cycling process as a scientific strategy

Onno de Noord: Representativity issues in process chemometrics.

Federico Marini: It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s gotta do it

Åsmund Rinnan: How to make the perfect calibration the first time?

Ingunn Berget: Cluster analysis as a tool for dirty data

Cyril Ruckebusch: Single-molecule fluorescence imaging data: can we help?


Session 4: Data Fusion

Age Smilde: How and when to link data sets new possibilities for linking data, and new possibilities for modelling modes. When do we need to fuse data?

Evrim Acar: Challenges in Data fusion based on Coupled Matrix and Tensor Factorization Shared and unshared factors, when to fuse data, weighing of data sets

Ingrid Måge: Challenges in modelling and interpretation of multiblock data

Common and unique factors, interactions between data blocks, interpretation of complex models

Alessandra Biancolillo: Multiblock classification Combining multiblock models and LDA, evaluation of block contributions, plots/graphics for interpretation

Johan Westerhuis: Variable selection in multi set data. How to cope with different measurement errors, use of resampling techniques

Thomas Skov: Smart pre-processing and variable selection. Using the additional information in e.g. control samples to preprocess data and select variables in a clever way.


The Secret Session – the Future of Science
