  3. Dear Prof.Fournier

    I run the java file related to SPMF.
    But for algorithms with large datasets, the following error occurs.

    An error occurred while trying to run the algorithm.
    ERROR MESSAGE: java.lang.RuntimeException: There is not enough space on the disk.

    Please help to resolve this issue.

    With respect

  4. I am Fekadu from Ethiopia. I am going to have my MSc. and now working on my thesis. I am highly interested to work in big data mining. My current thesis work is also proposed on the same research area.
    Hence, Although I am under qualified, I wish to be your colleague worker in the future as am on my journey for qualifications beyond the required.
