       The 15th European Conference on Machine Learning (ECML-04)
       The 8th European Conference on Principles and Practice of
               Knowledge Discovery in Databases (PKDD-04)

                   20-24 September 2004, Pisa, Italy



 The ECML/PKDD-2004 organizing committee invites proposals for
 tutorials and workshops to be held on Monday and Tuesday, September
 20-21, immediately preceding the main ECML/PKDD-2004 conference. We
 invite proposals for up to six half-day tutorials and six full day
 workshops. Proposals for a workshop/tutorial combination are also
 welcome (see below). The scope of the proposal should be consistent
 with the conference themes as described in the ECML/PKDD-2004 Call
 for Papers (see URL above).

 Workshops provide organizers and participants with an opportunity to
 discuss current topics in machine learning and/or data mining in a
 small and interactive atmosphere. Thus, any topic that is of current
 interest to a sufficient number of participants from the two
 communities could be the focus of a workshop. Workshops can
 concentrate in-depth on research topics, but can also be devoted to
 application issues, or to questions concerning the economic and
 social aspects of machine learning and data mining.

 Tutorials are intended to provide independent instruction on topics
 from the field of machine learning or data mining. Introductions to
 other research domains that could fertilize the ML/DM field with new
 challenges or solutions are also welcome. Each tutorial should
 - attract a large enough audience;
 - be presented by highly qualified persons with a demonstrable
   background and teaching experience in the tutorial area;
 - be well-focused, so that its core content can be covered in a 3.5
   hour tutorial slot (incl. a 30 minute break);
 - be accompanied by comprehensive notes written in clear, standard
 - cope with the wide diversity in the audience, or else be accompanied
   by a complete list of tutorial prerequisites;
 - cover the overall picture, without a bias towards the presenters'
   own work;
 - be free of commercial or sales-oriented material.

 As workshops and tutorials are in a sense complementary, we also
 welcome proposals for combined tutorial-workshop events. The general
 idea is that the tutorial gives an introduction to the field of the
 workshop, making the workshop accessible to a broader audience.

 For practical information on the workshops and tutorials, and for
 details on the submission procedure, please refer to the detailed call
 for workshops and tutorials that is available at
