4th KNIME Users Group Meeting and Workshop

The 4th KNIME Workshop and Users Meeting at the Technopark in Zurich, Switzerland took place between February 28th and March 4th, 2011.

The meeting was very well attended with more than 130 participants. The presentations ranged from Customer Intelligence over applications of KNIME in soil and fuel research to high performance data analytics and applications of KNIME in the Life Science industry. The second meeting of the special interest group attracted more than 50 attendees and was filled with talks about the use of KNIME in this fast growing research area. Below you can find the presentations and a few impressions on the meeting.
