We'd like to remind you that Phase 2 of the competition is imminent. On 2017-07-24 00:00:00 UTC, the Phase 2: Testing Leaderboard will open, and the Phase 1: Validation Leaderboard will close. During Phase 2, you are allowed to make only up to 10 submissions in total (not just per day), until the closing time 2017-07-31 23:59:59 UTC. Please proceed with caution. The data for Phase 2 is now available via Google Drive accessible from the "Get Data" page, but under the "testing" folder. We wish you all the best in this final stretch of the competition.
Hady Lauw, on behalf of CIKM AnalytiCup 2017 Co-chairs
Please note the following points:
1. Just because you had a previous submission to the Phase 1 leaderboard does not mean that you will automatically have an entry on the Phase 2 leaderboard. There is no "automatic transition" of your solution. You will have to deliberately make a separate submission based on the testing data to the Phase 2 leaderboard.
2. The data file for Phase 2 (data_test.csv) is different from the data file for Phase 1 (data_valid.csv). Please submit the predictions for the correct input file, i.e., data_test.csv for the Phase 2.
All the best!
