The European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML PKDD) includes a PhD student Forum on machine learning and data mining.
The purpose of this forum is to provide an environment specifically for junior PhD students to exchange ideas and experiences with peers in an interactive atmosphere and to get constructive feedback from senior researchers in machine learning, data mining, and related areas.
The focus of the discussion at the PhD Forum would be the work in progress of junior PhD students, with 1-3 years of research experience towards their dissertation.
During the forum, researchers with experience in supervising and examining doctoral students will participate and provide constructive feedback and advice to the participants.
It is an excellent opportunity for developing person-to-person networks to the benefit of the PhD students in their future careers.
The ECMLPKDD PhD Forum spans various topics of data mining, machine learning, and work in related fields such as databases, artificial intelligence, statistics, information retrieval, multimedia and the Web. Topics in specific domains such as bioinformatics and the more general science informatics are also encouraged. Participants with interdisciplinary work across the areas are particularly welcome.
