The European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML PKDD) will take place in Bled, Slovenia, from September 7th to 11th, 2009. This event builds upon a very successful series of 19 ECML and 12 PKDD conferences, which have been jointly organized for the past eight years. It has become the major European scientific event in these fields and in 2009 it will comprise presentations of contributed papers and invited speakers, a wide program of workshops and tutorials, a discovery challenge, a demo track and an industrial track.

ECML PKDD in SecondLife

This year, for the first time, ECML PKDD will be present in a virtual world. On Monday at 5.20pm CEST (11.20am in New York/8.20am in San Francisco), the Opening and Awards ceremony as well the invited talk by Rosie Jones (Yahoo!, Inc) will be broadcast in real time to a virtual conference centre provided by Nature Publishing Group in SecondLife.

Everyone is invited to join the event (and check out how the programme chairs avatars look like). To participate in this experiment, follow the instructions at http://www.nature.com/secondnature/basics.html and then visit http://slurl.com/secondlife/Elucian%20Islands/214/42/58 .

The video stream will also be accessible via a web browser here.

Online Access to Proceedings and Journal Issues

It is our pleasure to announce that all ECML PKDD 2009 participants will be able to browse the conference proceedings on-line for three weeks (presumably starting today).  Additionally, Springer provides free access to the content of the two special ECML PKDD journal issues published in Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery and in Machine Learning. As soon as we receive access information we will distribute it to all those conference participants who have covered their registration fees. For more information about all ECML PKDD volumes and related products, go to the Springer ECML PKDD page.

Conference newsletter

You have probably noticed that every morning the ECML PKDD Newsletter is available at the registration desk. You can also check them online.
