Call For Papers

The European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases, ECML/PKDD, 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 2014 edition of ECML/PKDD will take place in Nancy, France, September 15-19.

Submissions are invited on all aspects of machine learning, knowledge discovery and data mining, including real-world applications. Papers will mainly be evaluated on the basis of their relevance for the conference, their scientific contribution, rigour and correctness, the quality of presentation and reproducibility of experiments. Apart from that, we specifically welcome submissions which :

Have the potential to inspire the research community by introducing new and relevant problems, concepts, solution strategies, and ideas;
Contribute to solving a problem widely recognized as both challenging and important;
Address a novel area of impact of machine learning and data mining.

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

Apart from making normal conference submissions, there is also the possibility of submitting papers to the ECML/PKDD 2014 journal track. For information about the the journal track, please visit the following website : Journal Track Submission


All aspects of the submission and notification process will be handled online via the CMT conference management toolkit.

The papers must be written in English and formatted according to the Springer LNAI guidelines. Authors instructions and style files can be downloaded at:

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). Papers submitted should report original work; ECML/PKDD 2014 will not accept any paper which, 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.

Reviewing process

Papers submitted to ECML/PKDD 2014 will normally be reviewed by three referees. The review process is single-blind (reviewer identities unknown to authors) and there will be no opportunity for author rebuttal. This decision was made to minimize reviewer workload and to concentrate it in time, which may ultimately result in better quality reviews and decisions. If necessary, a discussion will take place among the reviewers of a paper until a decision is reached.

Important dates

Abstract submission deadline 12 April 2014
Paper submission deadline 16 April 2014
Author notification 15 June 2014
Camera ready submission 23 June 2014
