Getting Lost in the Wealth of Classifier Ensembles?
Ludmila Kuncheva, School of Computer Science, Bangor University, United Kingdom
Classifier ensembles have proven their worth for solving challenging problems of modern-day pattern recognition. It is easy to get lost in the massive volume of relevant literature, the quickly growing number of new methods and algorithms being proposed, and the wide spread of the ensemble research into numerous application areas. To be able to benefit from this wealth of knowledge, we need, metaphorically speaking, beacons, anchor points, and a well-organised warehouse. At the current stage, we need tools for assessment, benchmarking, comparison and structuring, more than we need new ensemble methods. In an attempt to address these issues, this talk discussed some of the “anchor points” such as ensemble diversity and combination strategies, and gave a bibliometric perspective on the development of the area. 
Biosignal-based Cognitive Systems and Applications
Tanja Schultz, Cognitive Systems Lab (CSL), University of Bremen, Germany
Biosignals are autonomous signals produced by humans measured in physical quantities. In the context of human-computer interaction, human modalities like speech, gestures or motion, i.e. muscle and brain activity at large, can be captured by non-invasive body-worn sensors. The processing and interpretation of the resulting biosignals offer an inside perspective on human physical and mental activities, intentions, and needs and thus complement the traditional way of observing human interaction from the outside.
Posters Session

Today 15 posters were scheduled to be presented in a forum for presenters from around the world to highlight their work and to share their successful ideas with colleagues by presenting a research study, a practical problem-solving effort, or an innovative idea. The Poster presentations provided other conference participants an opportunity to quickly and easily become acquainted with the presenters’ poster topic.
Closing Session

At the closing session, A "Best Paper Award" and a "Best Student Paper Award" were conferred to the author(s) of a full paper presented at the conference, selected by the Program/Conference Chairs based on the best combined marks of paper reviewing, assessed by the Program Committee, and paper presentation quality, assessed by session chairs at the conference venue.
Farewell Cocktail

Time to say goodbye and what a great way of doing it. Enjoy a laugh with new and old friends and we hope to have your presence at the conference’s next edition.
