Sponsorship Opportunities

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 2014 builds upon a very successful series of 24 ECML and 17 PKDD conferences, which have been jointly organized for the past 13 years. Many consider ECML PKDD to be the second most prominent global conference in data mining (after KDD) & machine learning (after ICML), thus offering an excellent and affordable alternative for companies to develop connections in both communities, acquire new talents, contribute to innovation and market their brands.

Thus, the ECML PKDD conference provides a forum in which sponsors will enjoy a great amount of visibility within the European and international community. The conference web site, continuously updated at www.ecmlpkdd2014.org, will be from now on the reference point of this broad community: on the basis of previous experience we expect several tens of thousands of contacts until the end of September 2014. 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 5 days, from Monday to Friday and typically attracts around 500 international participants from industry and research institutes. It hosts workshops and tutorials on Monday and Friday. Tuesday to Thursday are the 3 main conference days during which there will be multiple parallel technical paper tracks, as well as a demo/industry track (which is by invitation only). The conference is known for its relaxed atmosphere, with plenty of networking opportunities and social activities.

This year, the ECML PKDD conference will be held in Nancy, the cultural and economic capital city of the Lorraine region of north-eastern France. Set in green and rolling countryside and surrounded by rivers and waterways, Nancy is the epitome of a modern city which still enjoys and bears witness to its rich historical and cultural heritage. Situated at the heart of a vast metropolitan area of 410,000 inhabitants, Nancy is a lively, charismatic and well-proportioned city offering all the advantages of a major European metropolis. Indeed, a recent poll ranked Nancy the most attractive French city to live in « Le Nouvel Observateur » magazine, 2006. The proportion of young people (aged 19 to 29) in Nancy’s population is well above the national average, mainly due to the high number of students and young active workers in the city. The percentage of higher education degrees amongst the population is also higher than the national average, a trend which can be attributed to the large and varied number of training programs on offer in the city.
