Working Group Data Analysis and Numerical Classification (AG DANK)


The AG DANK is a working group of the German classification society GfKl . As indicated by its name, the group works on the statistical analysis of data in a broad sense with a focus on classification (supervised and unsupervised). The AG DANK has members from many areas and is interested in all applications of data analysis in research, business and engineering and in the exchange between different fields and between recent research in data analysis and the areas of application. The AG DANK was founded in 1979 and has currently about 200 members. In order to become a member, just write an email to the chair.

The AG DANK organises sessions of presentations on the annual conferences of the GfKl and its own meetings, traditionally in autumn (Herbsttagungen)> These meetings have changing focus topics. Usually there are 10-40 participants and lots of opportunity for exchange and discussion. Typically a data set is provided before the conference, and then analyses are presented during the conference by participants.
