ECML PKDD 2015 will use the same publication model as the two previous editions of ECML PKDD. In this model, there are three tracks to which papers can be submitted:
- The journal track. Articles for this track are submitted all year long directly to either Machine Learning or Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery, and are reviewed like regular journal articles. Accepted articles appear in full in the journal and the authors are given a presentation slot at the conference. Articles deemed insufficiently mature for journal publication may be accepted for inclusion in the proceedings. Submissions to the journal track will be managed by the Guest Editorial Board.
- The research proceedings track, which is organized in the traditional way. It will have one deadline in April 2014. Accepted papers will be published in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNCS/LNAI) of Springer, after reviewing by the programme committee.
- The NEW industrial, governmental & non-governmental (NGO) proceedings track, which is organized independently of the research track, with one deadline in April 2015. Accepted papers will be published in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNCS/LNAI) of Springer, after reviewing by the programme committee.
