Demo track

We invite submissions of demo papers for ECML PKDD 2024 in Vilnius, Lithuania. Demos present a valuable and unique opportunity to showcase innovative research and get direct feedback from the research community. Submissions should describe working systems based on state-of-the-art machine learning and data mining technology. Systems should demonstrate that they go beyond basic statistics and leverage machine learning techniques and knowledge discovery processes in a natural setting. Commercial software systems are not acceptable.

The accepted demo papers will be included in the conference proceedings and will be published by Springer Verlag in the “Lecture Notes in Computer Science” (LNCS) series. The submissions also have to include a short promotional video. The demos will be presented in a special demonstration session. At least one of the authors must register for the conference and perform the demo on-site. This year, the proceedings will be published after the conference and include only the papers that authors have presented at the conference. During the conference, camera-ready versions of the papers will be available for conference participants.

Submission guidelines

Submission site: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/ECMLPKDD2024

Please submit your proposal as: Create new submission and select the track: Demo .

Unlike the Research and ADS Tracks, for the demo submissions, we will apply a single-blind review process (authors’ identities known to reviewers). The paper must provide adequate information on the system’s components and the way the system is operated, including, e.g., screenshots and a use case. Authors should keep in mind that the description of a demo has inherently different content than a research paper submitted to the main conference. A successful demonstration paper should tackle the following questions:

  • What are the innovative aspects, or in what way/area does it represent the state of the art?
  • Who are the target users, and why is the system interesting/useful for them?
  • If there are similar/related pieces of software, what are the advantages and disadvantages of the one presented?
Paper format

A demonstration submission can be up to four pages long. The paper should contain a URL linking to a demonstration video of at most five minutes showing and explaining the execution of the system. Papers must be written in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines. Author instructions, style files and a copyright form can be downloaded here. Example demo papers from past editions can be found here.
