Subject: ECML/PKDD-2003 Call for Tutorials and Workshops, deadline Mar 1

14th European Conf. on Machine Learning (ECML-03)
7th European Conf. on Principles and Practice of
Knowledge Discovery in Databases (PKDD-03)

22-26 September 2003, Cavtat-Dubrovnik, Croatia


The ECML/PKDD-2003 organizing committee invites proposals for tutorials and workshops to be held on Monday and Tuesday, September 22-23, immediately preceding the main ECML/PKDD-2003 conference. We invite proposals for up to six half-day tutorials and six full day workshops. Proposals for a workshop/tutorial combination are also welcome (see below). The scope of the proposal should be consistent with the conference themes as described in the ECML/PKDD-2003 Call for Papers (see URL above).

Workshops provide organizers and participants an opportunity to discuss current topics in machine learning and/or data mining in a small and interactive atmosphere. Thus, any topic that is of current interest to a sufficient number of participants from the two communities could be the focus of a workshop. Workshops can choose to concentrate in-depth on research topics, but can also be devoted to application issues, or to questions concerning the economic and social aspects of machine learning and data mining.

Tutorials are intended to provide independent instruction on topics from the field of machine learning or data mining. Also welcome are introductions to other research domains that (could) fertilize the ML/DM field with new challenges or solutions. Each tutorial should

  • attract a large enough audience;
  • be presented by highly qualified persons with demonstrable background and teaching experience in the tutorial area;
  • be well-focused, so that its core content can be covered in a 3.5 hour tutorial slot (incl. a 30 minute break);
  • be accompanied by comprehensive notes written in clear, standard English;
  • cope with the wide diversity in the audience, or else be accompanied by a complete list of tutorial prerequisites;
  • cover the overall picture, without a bias towards the presenters' own work;
  • be free of commercial or sales-oriented material.
As workshops and tutorials are in a sense complementary, we also welcome proposals for combined tutorial-workshop events. The general idea is that the tutorial gives an introduction to the field of the workshop, making the workshop accessible to a broader audience.

Workshop/tutorial proposal deadline: March 1, 2003

For practical information on the workshops and tutorials, and for details on the submission procedure, please refer to the detailed call for workshops and tutorials that is available at http://www.cs.kuleuven.ac.be/conference/ecmlpkdd/.
