Call for Demo Session
The 15th European Conference on Machine Learning (ECML) and the 8th European
Conference on Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases
(PKDD) will be co-located in Pisa, Italy, September 20-24, 2004. The
combined event will comprise presentations of contributed papers and invited
speakers, a wide program of workshops, tutorials, and a discovery challenge,
and last but not least a demo session. 

The Demo Session is reserved to innovative applications or successful
experiences/prototypes in applying the Knowledge Discovery Process to
practical cases. Also, are solicited demonstrations of prototypes/systems
which show the integration of new Data Mining and Machine Learning
technologies, advances using complex data structures and databases,
XML-data, multimedia, expert systems in innovative application domains, such
as bioinformatics, medical domains, WEB, e-commerce, etc. 

Demonstration proposals should give a short description of the demonstrated
system, explain what is going to be demonstrated, and state the significance
of the contribution to the field of Machine Learning and Knowledge Discovery
in Databases. Important for the participants, in addition to the description
of technical functionalities, will be to provide also performance results
and quality measures (on standard benchmarks in the field and comparative

Short papers describing demos will appear in the Proceedings. Demonstration
proposals must be no more than three (3) pages, in English and should be
formatted according to the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science
