Pisa, Italy, September 20-24, 2004
http://ecmlpkdd.isti.cnr.itecmlpkdd at isti.cnr.it
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.
