We are pleased to announce the new website of ECML PKDD, the European Conference on Machine Learning and Knowledge Discovery in Databases!

For a long time already ECML PKDD has had a website at http://www.ecmlpkdd.org. Till now, however, this website was only used to collect information regarding the ECML PKDD conference series. It contained technical information such as...

  • the composition of the steering committee
  • the procedures for submitting a conference proposal
  • a list of links to editions of the conference
  • our policy with respect to diversity at the conference

As machine learning and data mining are popular as never before, the steering committee of the conference has decided to make the website more active. The first result of this effort is what you are reading now!

The ECML PKDD website has moved to a new server. We have brought the website up-to-date; for instance, click here to see the up-to-date list of old conferences.

On this server, we are adding a news section; we aim to add news items on machine learning and data mining at a regular basis. We will have a specific focus on topics of interest to reseachers that typically attend ECML PKDD conferences. The news items will be shared on social media such as Facebook and Twitter, using the accounts that already exist there for the conference series.

There are further plans to add a job portal; this portal will list open positions in data mining and machine learning in Europe.

While we will actively search for contributions to this website, we need your help to make it a success. Any help would be appreciated highly:

  • suggestions for topics that we should write about
  • contributions that you would like us to publish
  • your help as an editor
  • further ideas on how to improve the website

For the moment, this website will be managed by Siegfried Nijssen and Chedy Ra´ssi. Don't hesitate to send us a mail.
