Call For Papers


We invite contributions from both industry and academia to share their research and experience in using Machine Learning methods for pharmaceutical and healthcare research and development. PharML will be held in person at the European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML-PKDD) in Turin, Italy.

This is the 4th. consecutive iteration of PharML. You can visit our previous meeting websites (2020, 2021, 2022) to learn more about the themes and topics we address in the workshop.

*Submission Guidelines*

We invite authors to submit their work in either an abstract or extended format. 
- Research abstracts: describe preliminary results and are meant to foster discussion of emerging topics. Maximum of 6 pages.
- Long papers: present mature work, published or unpublished. Maximum of 16 pages.

Authors of accepted papers will be notified whether their paper is selected for oral presentation or poster session

*Additional Guidelines*

- All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed and the review process is strictly double-blind.
- All submissions must be anonymous. Make sure the document(s) you upload does not contain names, affiliations, acknowledgements or any information that can be used to directly identify you. Replace the author information with "Anonymous".  Avoid including URLs of GitHub repositories linked to you.
- Authors should commit to present their work at the workshop in case it is accepted for an oral presentation.
- Manuscripts should be in PDF format, following the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science style (
- Submissions should be done via the Conference Management Toolkit (CMT) page Follow these steps to submit your manuscript:
- In the “Submissions” tab, make sure the selected conference is “ECMLPKDDworkshop2023”.
- When you click the button “+ Create new submission”, select “PharML, Machine Learning for Pharma and Healthcare Applications” as the track.

* Paper Publication*

The PharML workshop will partner again this year with Springer to publish the workshop proceedings.

- Only unpublished work or extended versions of the abstracts are eligible for publication in the workshop proceedings.
- Important note from the Conference Organizers: accepted manuscripts at the workshop without a full registration of one of the authors or in-presence presentation will not be included in the workshop proceedings.
