CD-MAKE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE COMMITTEE 2018

The CD-MAKE scientific committee is consisting of enthusiastic voluntary experts from academia, from industry and from various application domains (e.g. health) of the organically grown International expert network HCI-KDD and additional international experts from the seven thematic areas (see figure below) to ensure the highest possible scientific quality.

Each paper will be reviewed by at least three experts, who are grouped into the seven thematic areas (1,2,3,4,5,6,7) as in about CD-MAKE described
