Call for Papers

ECML/PKDD-2005
Porto, Portugal, October 3-7, 2005
http://ecmlpkdd05.liacc.up.pt/
mailto:ecmlpkdd05@liacc.up.pt


The 16th European Conference on Machine Learning (ECML) and the 9th European Conference on Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (PKDD) will be co-located in Porto, Portugal, October 3-7, 2005. The combined event will comprise presentations of contributed papers and invited speakers, a wide program of workshops and tutorials, a demo session, and a discovery challenge.


Important dates 

- Submission deadline: May 16, 2005
- Notification of acceptance: July 11, 2005
- Camera-ready copies due: July 25, 2005 
- Conferences: October 3 to October 7, 2005


Paper submission 

High quality research contributions pertinent to any aspects of machine learning and knowledge discovery are called for, ranging from principles to practice; particular attention will be paid to papers describing innovative, challenging applications. 

There will be a single electronic submission procedure, where authors should indicate whether they submit their paper to ECML, PKDD, or both. In the latter case, the topic of the joint submission must be within the scope of both conferences; accepted joint submissions will be assigned to the most appropriate of the conferences. Student submissions should be clearly indicated on the submission form. All submissions will be reviewed by the respective program committees. 

The papers must  be in English and should be formatted according to the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence guidelines. Authors instructions and style files can be downloaded at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html 

The maximum length of papers is 12 pages. The proceedings of ECML and PKDD will be published as two separate volumes by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series and will be available at the conference. 

Simultaneous submissions to other  conferences are allowed, provided this fact is clearly indicated on the submission form. Simultaneous submissions that are not clearly specified as such will be rejected.  Accepted papers will appear in the ECML/PKDD conference proceedings only if they are  withdrawn from proceedings of other conferences.

** PKDD Call for Papers

Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) is the ability to extract useful patterns from large amounts of data stored in databases, data warehouses or other information repositories. KDD is a combination of many research areas: databases, statistics, machine learning, automated scientific discovery, artificial intelligence, visualization, and high performance computing. KDD 
focuses on the value that is added by the creative combination of the contributing areas. 

The European Conference on Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases series intends to provide an international forum for the discussion of the latest high quality research results in KDD and is the major European scientific event in the field. 

Submissions are invited that describe empirical and theoretical research  in all areas of KDD, as well as submissions that describe challenging applications of KDD.
