ECML PKDD is an abbreviation for the European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases. In the 1990s, two independent conferences on Machine Learning and Data Mining existed in Europe, called ECML and PKDD. Since 2001, a single event has been organised, referred to as ECML PKDD, in which members of the research communities on Machine Learning and Data Mining in Europe meet every year.

The aim of this website (as well as the Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube accounts linked to it) is to provide this community an online presence. More concretely, our goal is to provide information about the conference series that is not specific to one edition of the conference.

This website was created under the auspices of the steering committee of ECML PKDD. It is edited by its communication chairs. At this moment this is Siegfried Nijssen (email: siegfried.nijssen@uclouvain.be).
