The ECML PKDD 2024 Organizing Committee invites proposals for half-day tutorials to be held on the first and last days of the conference (September 9th and 13th, 2024), which will take place in Vilnius, Lithuania. Tutorials are intended to provide a comprehensive introduction to established or emerging research topics of interest to the machine learning and data mining community. These topics include related research fields or applications but also well-developed tools and suites that support ML/DM research. The ideal tutorial should attract a wide audience. It should be broad enough to provide a basic introduction to the chosen area, but it should also cover the most important topics in depth. Each tutorial should be well-focused so that its content can be covered in a half-day slot. For relatively novel but rapidly maturing topics, we encourage a format that combines a half day tutorial (4h incl. one 30 minute break) followed by a half day workshop (also 4h incl. one 30 minute break). Proposals that exclusively focus on the presenter’s own work or commercial demonstrations are strongly discouraged. We offer a waived registration fee for attendance of the main conference to one speaker for each accepted no-online tutorial.
Tutorial proposals should contain at least the following:
Tutorial proposals will be reviewed by the workshop and tutorial co-chairs, who may use the help of external reviewers and experts on the submission topics. Features that will be evaluated are:
The ECML PKDD 2024 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held on the first and last days of the conference (September 9th and 13th, 2024), which will take place in Vilnius, Lithuania. We solicit proposals for both full- and half-day workshops in current and emerging topics in machine learning and data mining. Workshops provide an opportunity to discuss novel topics in a small and interactive atmosphere. They can concentrate in-depth on research topics, but can also be devoted to application domains or issues, or to questions concerning the economic and social aspects of machine learning and data mining. Multidisciplinary workshops that bring together researchers and practitioners from different communities are particularly welcome. We also welcome proposals of less conventional for ECMLPKDD workshop formats, e.g. similar in spirit to CRAFT workshops at FAccT, currently running EU projects and other interactive events. We offer a waived registration fee for attendance of the main conference to one organizer or invited speaker for each accepted no-online workshop. We intend to facilitate additional workshop-only waived registrations for invited speakers coming outside the ECMLPKDD community.
We welcome full- and half-day workshop proposals, as well as tutorial+workshop proposals. Full-day workshops have a program of typically 8 hours including two 30-minute coffee breaks plus a lunch break. Half-day workshops have a 4 hours program with a 30-minute coffee break. Combined tutorial+workshop events start with a half-day tutorial followed by a half-day workshop. We would like to encourage proposers to aim for a program that is both varied and interesting. Especially where the format of the workshop is concerned, we would like you to think about ways of going beyond the usual list of presentations of accepted papers. Keep in mind that the main conference is necessarily more time-constrained and workshops therefore allow for group explorations of interesting topics, for example by means of discussions, demo sessions, invited talks, and panels. Another way of extending the usual format is to include a specific challenge problem that can be addressed by the workshop participants, with a dedicated challenge session in the workshop program. Note, however, that the challenge should be only one of the components of the workshop, targeting a problem which is specific to the workshop topic(s)
Workshop proposals should contain the necessary information for the workshop chairs and reviewers to judge the importance, quality, and community interest in the proposed topic (a minimum of 15-20 expected participants is required). Each workshop should have one or more designated organisers and a program. When proposing a workshop, please provide (at least) the following information:
Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the workshop and tutorial co-chairs, who may use the help of external reviewers and experts on the submission topics. Features that will be evaluated are:
Please submit your proposal as: Create new submission and select the track: Workshops and Tutorials Proposals.
Accepted Workshops will be hosted and managed by the workshop proposal authors in CMT.
The Workshops and Tutorials will be included in a joint Post-Workshop proceeding published by Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science, in 1-2 volumes, organised by focused scope and possibly indexed by WOS. Papers authors will have the faculty to opt-in or opt-out. We suggest workshop papers are prepared and submitted in the format: LNCS format.
