Industry Track

The ECML/PKDD Industry track aims to bring together machine learning practitioners, industry stakeholders and academic communities for exchanging processes on developing product-grade software solutions enhanced by machine learning solutions. The idea is to bring together business propositions, problem statements, possible use cases and datasets to explore future synergies in value creation through Machine Learning and Data Mining applications to the real-world.

We solicit submissions of abstracts representing 1+ industrial stakeholder describing designs and/or implementations of one of the following:

  1. Full functioning systems for practical tasks in data mining, data analytics, data science, and applied machine learning with demonstrate significant and verifiable business- or real-world impact;
  2. Solutions that either solve or advance the understanding of issues related to deploying data science technologies in the real world;
  3. Solutions that either solve or advance the understanding of issues related to the attraction and retention of talent, and the methodologies for the implantation of adequate career development processes for machine learning practitioners in industry;
  4. Early venture ideas of business propositions/machine learning fueled pipelines and datasets/data collection methods;
The accepted presentations will be limited to a slot of 20 minutes in 1+ session created specifically for this track. Authors are expected to submit an extended abstract (4-8 pages) including a title, author names and affiliation, a primary contact and an abstract (up to 500 words). It is not mandatory but it is encouraged to support the experimental reproducibility of the proposals by providing open data and code, containerization, or any possible means.

Submissions should be made via e-mail with the subject [ECML/PKDD 2021 INDUSTRY TRACK SUBMISSION] to industry_track@2021.ecmlpkdd.org
