ECML PKDD is the premier European machine learning and data mining conference, attracting a worldwide audience. The conference program includes presentations of peer-reviewed research papers, invited talks by eminent researchers in the field, a wide program of workshops and tutorials, a discovery challenge, a demo track and an industrial track. ECML PKDD 2017 builds upon a very successful series of 27 ECML and 20 PKDD conferences, which have been jointly organized for the past 16 years. The conference attracts an audience of over 500 attendees and it is a unique opportunity for companies to develop connections in both machine learning and data mining communities, acquire new talents, contribute to innovation and market their brands. The conference is known for its relaxed atmosphere, with plenty of networking opportunities and social activities.
The ECML PKDD conference provides a forum where sponsors will enjoy a great amount of visibility within the machine learning and data mining communities. The conference web site is the reference point of this broad community: based on previous experience we expect several tens of thousands of visits until the end of September 2017. Other promotion initiatives will be carried out, nationwide and internationally, through web portals, mailing lists, posters and posting on social media. The conference lasts for five days, with workshops and tutorial on Monday and Friday and the main conference sessions on Tuesday to Thursday. Friday will also feature an Applied Data Science Track, with invited speakers, peer- reviewed papers and company presentations.
In 2017, the conference will be held in Skopje, the capital of Republic of Macedonia. Macedonia is a country located in the center of the Balkan peninsula, situated in Southeast Europe. The rich Macedonian culture and tradition is best summarized by a National Geographic article, stating:
... through thousands of years, the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires have shaped Macedonia’s rich culture and traditions. In this modern day republic, the past is with you everywhere: early Christian basilicas with ancient mosaics; enchanting Byzantine churches with world-renowned frescoes; and the many mosques with their delicate minarets. The site of a megalithic observatory near Kumanovo is some 3,800 years old. Ohrid, with its many treasures and beautiful lake, is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Skopje, the capital and a bustling city, offers the Stone Bridge crossing the River Vardar, the Ottoman-era Old Bazaar with its innumerable handicraft shops, and the ruins of the Kale Fortress. Nearby, the spectacular Matka canyon is home to medieval monasteries, caves, varieties of plant and animal life, and is a center for alpine hiking, with kayaking on the Treska River, plus fishing and hunting. Visit Macedonia with its benign climate year round: in winter, join the pagan carnivals; in spring, participate in wine harvests; in summer, traditional local dances and music beckon; and, in autumn, visit mountains, canyons and national parks emblazoned in rainbow colors. Travel to a traditional village and enjoy home-prepared food, often a savory Turkish cuisine, accompanied by the great Vranec red wine. Macedonia leaves visitors with unforgettable memories.
