The purpose of WG LiM is to connect researchers interested in mining issues all over the world. Collaboration and mutual exchange are highly valued by all our members.
This is why we frequently launch Calls for Contributions, both for permanent and single projects or events.
The open Calls for Contribution concern mostly Blog Series and Collaborative Projects. These Calls have no deadlines and they are always open to contributions and suggestions. Proposals must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
