Rapid-I and the Faculty of Engineering of the Porto University host the fourth RapidMiner Community Meeting And Conference (RCOMM 2013) in Porto between August 27 and 30, 2013. We invite customers, users and developers of RapidMiner to take part and share their RapidMiner experiences with other members of the community. The RCOMM 2013 intends to intensify the community life and strengthen the RapidMiner network by bringing together users and developers of RapidMiner from all backgrounds, may they be scientific or commercial, from the whole variety of applications and from all grades of knowledge.
