############################################################

European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of

Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML-PKDD)

Skopje, Macedonia, September 18-22, 2017 (http://www.ecmlpkdd2017.org).

############################################################


Submissions are solicited for the 2017 edition of the European Conference
on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in
Databases (ECML-PKDD 2017). The conference 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. The 2017 conference will take place in
Skopje, Macedonia, 18‐22 September 2017.

Submissions are invited on all aspects of machine learning, knowledge
discovery and data mining, including real-world applications. Following the
tradition of ECML-PKDD, we expect high-quality papers in terms of their
scientific contribution, rigor, correctness, quality of presentation and
reproducibility of experiments.

Submission process

Electronic submissions will be handled via CMT at the following address:
https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/ECMLPKDD2017/. Please note that user
accounts in each CMT conference are independent of other conferences, so
you will need to create a new account. Abstracts need to be registered by
Thursday April 13, 2017 and full submissions will be accepted until
Thursday April 20, 2017. Papers must be written in English and formatted
according to the Springer LNAI guidelines. Author instructions, style files
and copyright form can be downloaded at:
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. The maximum length of papers
is 16 pages in this format. Overlength papers will be rejected without
review (papers with smaller page margins and font sizes than specified in
the author instructions and set in the style files will also be treated as
overlength).

Up to 10 MB of additional materials (e.g. proofs, audio, images, video,
data or source code) can be attached to the submission. Note that the
reviewers and the program committee reserve the right to judge the paper
solely on the basis of the 16 pages of the paper; looking at any additional
material is up to the discretion of the reviewers and is not required.


Reviewing process

The review process is single-blind (authors identities known to reviewers).
Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of technical quality, novelty,
potential impact, and clarity. Authors will have the opportunity to point
out factual errors, obvious mistakes, or misconceptions by reviewers during
a rebuttal phase following the release of initial reviews.


Dual submissions policy

Papers submitted should report original work. ECML-PKDD 2017 will not
accept any paper that, 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. The dual submissions policy applies during the whole
ECML-PKDD 2017 reviewing period from April 20 to June 22, 2017.


Reproducible research papers

Authors are encouraged to adhere to the best practices of Reproducible
Research (RR), by making available data and software tools for reproducing
the results reported in their papers. Authors may flag their submissions as
RR and make software and data accessible to reviewers and to the program
committee who will verify the accessibility of software and data. Links to
data and code will then be inserted in the final version of RR papers. For
the sake of persistence and proper authorship attribution, we require the
use of standard repository hosting services such as Dataverse, mldata.org,
OpenML, etc. for data sets, and mloss.org, Bitbucket, GitHub, etc. for
source code. If data or code gets updated after the paper is published, it
is important to enable researchers to access the versions that were used to
produce the results reported in the paper.


Proceedings

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture
Notes in Artificial Intelligence series (LNAI).

In addition to normal conference submissions, papers can be submitted to
other tracks:

Industrial, Governmental and NGO; Demo; Ph.D.; Nectar; journal track.
Accepted papers in all the tracks, including journal track, will be
presented at the conference.

For information about other tracks, please see the separate call for papers.
