13th European Conference on Machine Learning (ECML'02)
6th European Conference on Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (PKDD'02)
19-23 August 2002
The 13th European Conference on Machine Learning (ECML) and the 6th European Conference on Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (PKDD) were co-located in Helsinki, Finland, in August 2002. Co-ordination of the two conferences provided ample opportunities for cross-fertilization between the two areas, and followed the success of the jointly organized ECML/PKDD-2001 in Freiburg, Germany. ECML/PKDD-2003 will take place in Cavtat-Dubrovnik, Croatia, in September 2003.
