With an expected attendance of about 400, the European Conference on Machine Learning and European Conference on Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases provide an excellent visibility to the academic and industrial research community.

We welcome industrial and local organizations to support the conference, the Student Travel Award Program, and dedicated events.

Sponsorship will be acknowledged on our web page, the conference program, and the proceedings. Sponsors are welcome to distribute giveaways - e.g., T-shirts, pens - to the participants. It is also possible to include flyers in the conference material.

Student Travel Awards

We plan to provide travel awards to PhD student authors of accepted conference papers. If you are interested in supporting this program, we will forward your contribution to selected student authors of accepted papers. Your support will be visible to the awardee and you will be able to contact the author, for instance, at the poster session.

Support of Events

We plan to organize two poster receptions and a banquet. We invite companies to sponsor a reception or dinner.† Sponsorship of an event will be clearly visible.


If you are interested in sponsoring ECML/PKDD 2006, please contact Tobias Scheffer.
