Report of MDA 2017 in New York, USA

July 24th, 2017 The MDA2017 is over now. It was a great success. People from different countries contributed to the conference and presented their brand-new research results. The acceptance rate for the papers were 33 percent. The presentations of the work were impressive and the audience contributed a lot with very profound questions and remarks. The conference was very inspiring to the authors and participants and we hope you are coming back with your new work on the respective topics or you now start your own research on mass data analysis of signals and images. People enjoyed talking and discussing topics during the breaks with each other and a lot of new groundbreaking topics were raised during that discussions. It was a very inspiring and encouraging work atmosphere during the conference that people enjoyed very much.

The tutorials were another inspiring occasion that have been taken by a large number of people. We recognized a tremendous increase of interest in the topics. That shows us that we have made further success in bringing these topics to the attention of researchers and practicioner. The participants have got a profound introduction into the area as well as a deep understanding of the different data mining techniques. Inspiring were also the lessons learnt from the different application areas that brought to the mind of the people what is necessary when doing data mining and knowledge discovery or case-based reasoning. The tutorial Intelligent image processing gave a deep insight in the different new methods that allow built real models for image processing, analysis and understanding. The tutorial Standardization showed once more how important it is to have automatic systems to come up with a good quality of the results.

New York as well was a very inspiring place and people took the freedom to enjoyed seeing the city and its attraction as well as the surrounding cities of New York and their attractions after the conference.
