The European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML PKDD) will take place in Bristol, UK from September 24th to 28th, 2012.

This event builds upon a very successful series of 22 ECML and 15 PKDD conferences, which have been jointly organized for the past 11 years.

ECML-PKDD is the prime European scientific event in these fields. It will feature presentations of contributed papers and invited speakers, a wide program of workshops and tutorials on the first and last days, a discovery challenge, and a DINe track with demo, industry, and ‘nectar’ talks.
