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 and
other innovative application domains.

We invite submissions on all aspects of machine learning,
knowledge discovery and data mining. We especially encourage submissions of
papers that describe the application of machine learning and data mining
methods to real-world problems, and highlight new research challenges in new
domains such as the web, medicine, biology, neuroscience, engineering, government fields.

Submissions that demonstrate both theoretical and empirical rigor are
also highly encouraged.

Proceedings and Special Journal Issues


The conference proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag (“Lecture
Notes in Artificial Intelligence Series”).
A selection of papers will be published in two post-conference special issues
of the Springer Verlag journals “Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery” and
“Machine Learning”.



All aspects of the submission and notification process will be handled online
via the Microsoft CMT.

The papers must be written in English and 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 16 pages in this format.

Papers submitted should report original work; ECML PKDD 2011 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.

Papers submitted to ECML PKDD 2011 will normally be reviewed by
