Sponsoring opportunities

The ECML PKDD conference series provides a unique forum for researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government to share their findings and expertise in the field: it is an excellent venue for finding out the latest trends in academic and industrial research, and for exchanging information with the researchers in the field.
In Bled, Slovenia, ECML and PKDD will be co-located for the ninth time in a row. The rich program of invited speakers, tutorials, workshops, and industrial day will help to keep the scientific quality at a very high level. Moreover, the reachability and attractiveness of Slovenia should also ensure exceptionally high attendance by academic, commercial and government participants (the past two editions had more than 400 participants).
This major machine learning and data mining event in Europe, with its international participation, will provide its sponsors with great visibility within this European and world-wide community. The conference web site, continuously updated at http://www.ecmlpkdd2009.net, will be from now on the reference point of this broad community: on the basis of previous experience we expect several tens of thousands contacts until the end of September 2009. Other various promotion initiatives will be carried out, nationwide and internationally, through web portals, mailing lists, posters and posting on specific media.
