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 ADS track. ECML PKDD 2019 builds upon a very successful series of 29 ECML and 22 PKDD conferences, which have been jointly organized for the past 18 years. The conference attracts an audience of over 600 attendees and it is a unique opportunity for companies to develop connections in both machine learning and data mining communities, acquire new talents, contribute to innovation and market their brands. The conference is known for its relaxed atmosphere, with plenty of networking opportunities and social activities.

The ECML PKDD conference provides a forum where sponsors will enjoy a great amount of visibility within the machine learning and data mining communities. The conference web site, continuously updated at www.ecmlpkdd2019.org, is the reference point of this broad community: based on previous experience we expect several tens of thousands of visits until the end of September 2019. 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 five days, with workshops and tutorial on Monday and Friday and the main conference sessions on Tuesday to Thursday. Monday will also feature an Industry Forum, which will give companies an opportunity to present themselves at the start of the conference.

In 2019, the conference will be held in Würzburg, a beautiful city in Germany. The old town features picturesque sights, like the Residenz, a magnificent palace and UNESCO world heritage site, the Marienberg Fortress, the river Main or the multitude of churches and old buildings. The area around Würzburg is furthermore home to some of the best wines in Germany and offers with its astonishing landscape and nature many possibilities for recreation and adventure.
