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 examples).

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 guidelines.
Authors instructions and style files can be downloaded at 

The deadline for submitting proposals is May 15, 2004. 

Notification of acceptance: Monday, June 7, 2004.

Camera Ready due: Monday, June 28, 2004 (Strict deadline).

In the exhibit space, exhibitors give demonstrations and present their prototypes/systems 
to the audience, answering to their questions. A selected demo is shown to the interested 
audience in a slot of two hours including a coffee break. Each demo is then repeated 
more times (till three) during all week. Demos are explicitely mentioned in the conference 
program scheduling and in the daily news.  

Exhibitors are responsible for bringing all hardware and software required for their 
demonstrations. Accepted exhibitors have to register to the conference like all the 
other conference participants.
