Call For Papers

The European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases provides an international forum for the discussion of the latest high quality research results in all areas related to machine learning and knowledge discovery in databases. Encouraged are submissions of papers that describe the application of machine learning and data mining methods to real-world problems, particularly exploratory research that describes novel learning and mining tasks and applications requiring non-standard techniques. Submissions that demonstrate both theoretical and empirical rigor are especially encouraged.

Proceedings and Journal

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer. A selection of papers will be directly published in the special journal issues “Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery” and in “Machine Learning Journal”. All other accepted submissions will be published in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence Series.


ECML PKDD 2009 will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review or has already been accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Authors are also expected not to submit their papers elsewhere during the review period of ECML PKDD 2009.

The papers must be in English and must be formatted according to the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence guidelines.
Authors instructions and style files can be downloaded at .
The maximum length of papers is at most 16 pages in this format.
Papers submitted to ECML PKDD 2009 will normally be reviewed by minimum two referees.
There will be no “blind review” process. Student submissions should be clearly indicated on the submission form.
