Deadline for delivering practical work

Except for a couple of people that I have contacted for email, let's say that I will accept your description of the practical work performed until July 20th.

Practical work = "lab" != exercises:  Practical work counts for the extra 1 credit.

For exercises, as stated during the course, the deadline is 2 weeks after they were proposed. Exercises give 2 credits, if about 70% of them were handed in reasonable shape. I'm open to negotiation.

Another seminar on Data Streams - Toon Calders

By chance, another seminar on data streams will take place in UPC in the next days, as part of the IT4BI:

Toon Calders ( is one of the leading researchers in Data Mining in Europe. His seminar largely overlaps with Part I of this one, probably covering less material overall because it's shorter, but no doubt Toon's view will be extremely illuminating.

Contact Óscar Romero (oromero AT if you are interested in attending.
