ECML-PKDD 2009: call for tutorials

The ECML-PKDD 2009 Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials to be held on the first and the last day of the conference, which will take place in Bled, Slovenia, on September 7-11, 2009.
Tutorials are free of charge to the conference attendees.

We seek proposals for half-day tutorials on core techniques and emerging research topics that enjoy broad interest within the machine learning and the data mining community. We also welcome tutorials from related research fields or exciting application areas. Tutorials should attract a wide audience. They should be broad enough to provide a gentle introduction to the chosen research area and they should highlight the current challenges. The ideal tutorial should also cover the most important contributions in sufficient depth and discuss future research directions. Proposals that exclusively focus on the presenters’ own work are not eligible.

Guidelines for preparing a proposal can be found at:

Tutorial proposals should be submitted via email in PDF format to the ECML-PKDD 2009 tutorial chair (ecml-pkdd-tu (at) Proposers should expect to receive a verification of receipt soon after submission.

The timeline is as follows:

Tutorial proposals due: March 8, 2009
Acceptance notification: March 25, 2009
Tutorial material due: August 15, 2009
Tutorials date: September 7 and 11, 2009

I hope to see you at the tutorials.
