Sponsorship Brochure

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 Applied Data Science track. ECML PKDD 2020 builds upon a very successful series of 30 ECML and 23 PKDD conferences, which have been jointly organized for the past 19 years. The conference attracts an audience of over 800 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 (www.ecmlpkdd2020.net) will attract several tens of thousands of visits until the end of September 2020. Other international promotion initiatives will be carried out through web portals, mailing lists, posters and social media. The conference lasts for five days, with workshops and tutorials on Monday and Friday and the main conference sessions on Tuesday to Thursday. It will also feature an Industry Track, which will give companies an additional opportunity to present themselves during the conference.

In 2020, the conference will be held in Ghent, a beautiful city in Belgium, a stone’s throw from Brussels, Paris, London, and Amsterdam.

We are bringing to your kind attention the opportunity of becoming one of the ECML PKDD 2020 sponsors. We offer various sponsor levels, as well as many custom opportunities for sponsoring various elements of the conference based on your needs, objectives and budget. We are looking forward to discussing opportunities further with you and welcoming you as an ECML PKDD 2020 sponsor.
