Call for Demo Session
The 15th European Conference on Machine Learning (ECML) and
the 8th European Conference on Principles and Practice of
Knowledge Discovery in Databases (PKDD) will be co-located in
Pisa, Italy, September 20-24, 2004. The combined event will
comprise presentations of contributed papers and invited
speakers, a wide program of workshops, tutorials, and a
discovery challenge, and last but not least a demo session.
The Demo Session is reserved to innovative applications or
successful experiences/prototypes in applying the Knowledge
Discovery Process to practical cases. Also, are solicited
demonstrations of prototypes/systems which show the
integration of new Data Mining and Machine Learning
technologies, advances using complex data structures and
databases, XML-data, multimedia, expert systems in innovative
application domains, such as bioinformatics, medical domains,
WEB, e-commerce, etc.
Demonstration proposals should give a short description of the
demonstrated system, explain what is going to be demonstrated,
and state the significance of the contribution to the field of
Machine Learning and Knowledge Discovery in Databases.
Important for the participants, in addition to the description
of technical functionalities, will be to provide also
performance results and quality measures (on standard
benchmarks in the field and comparative examples).
Short papers describing demos will appear in the Proceedings.
Demonstration proposals must be no more than three (3) pages,
in English and should be formatted according to the
Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science guidelines.
Authors instructions and style files can be downloaded at

In the exhibit space, exhibitors give demonstrations and
present their prototypes/systems to the audience, answering to
their questions. A selected demo is shown to the interested
audience in a slot of two hours including a coffee break. Each
demo is then repeated more times (till three) during all week.
Demos are explicitely mentioned in the conference program
scheduling and in the daily news.
Exhibitors are responsible for bringing all hardware and
software required for their demonstrations. Accepted
exhibitors have to register to the conference like all the
other conference participants.
