CMLA '04: The Third International Conference
on Machine Learning and Applications

Sponsored/Co-Sponsored by the IEEE SMC, the ACM SIGKDD,
Association for ML and Applications, and University of Louisville

Louisville, Kentucky, USA
December 16-18 2004

(Papers Due: June 4, 2004)


ICMLA'04 aims to bring together researchers and
practitioners to present the latest achievements
and innovations in the area of machine learning (ML).
The conference provides a leading international
forum for the dissemination of original research
in ML, with emphasis on applications, novel algorithms,
software and systems. For the third time the conference
attracts researchers and application developers
from a wide range of ML related areas such as statistical,
probabilistic, fuzzy, evolutionary, inductive, and
other kinds of learning, data mining, knowldge discovery,
pattern recognition, knowledge acquisition and retrieval,
databases, data warehousing and visualization,
knowledge-based systems and high performance computing.
The main goal of the conference is to advance the state of
the art in ML via promotion of high quality and novel

Regular Research Papers due : June 4, 2004
Notification of acceptance : September 4, 2004
Camera-ready papers &
Pre-registration : October 1, 2004
The ICMLA Conference : December 16-18, 2004

All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Detailed
instructions are provided on the conference home page at


High quality papers in all ML areas are solicited. Papers that
present new directions will receive especially careful and
supportive reviews. Authors are expected to ensure that their final
manuscripts are original and are not appearing in the other publications.

Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 8 pages, and
will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical
quality, originality, significance, and clarity. All submissions
will be handled electronically. Accepted papers will be published
in the conference proceedings, as a hardcopy.
A selected number of accepted papers will be invited for
possible inclusion, in an expanded and revised form, in a journal.
ICMLA'04 Best Paper Awards will be conferred at the conference on the
authors of the best research paper.


We invite the submission of proposals for special sessions,
workshops and tutorials. Proposals to organize such sessions
should include the following information:
- name and address of the proposer(s)
- title of the session
- description of the session (see further details below)
Each special session will have at least six paper presentations.
The special session chairs will be responsible for
soliciting the papers, reviewing, and making final decisions,
in consultation with the conference chairs.
The description of the session should include a short description
on how the session will be advertised.
Proposals to organize tutorials or workshops should be 1-5 pages
long and should include a definition of the scope of coverage.
Special sessions will be open to all participants.

Due date for the submission of proposals:
- Special sessions May 7, 2004
- Workshops and Tutorials May 7, 2004

Sessions Chair Dr. Alan Sprague (

=> VENUE <=

You are cordially invited to participate in the ICMLA'04,
to be held in Louisville, Kentucky.
Louisville offers a quality of life that is matched by few in the country.
Not only is Louisville one of nine communities with a resident professional opera,
theater, orchestra, ballet and children's theater. Louisville also is home to several
world-class museums and educational attractions, such as the J.B. Speed Art Museum, Glassworks
and the Louisville Science Center.

From the gigantic Louisville Slugger replica outside Hillerich & Bradsby's downtown headquarters,
which offers tours of its bat factory and museum, to the Twin Spires of Churchill Downs in south
central Louisville, sports also play an important role in the community. The University of Louisville
is home to Division I football and basketball teams, and the city also enjoys rooting its professional
baseball and arena football teams to victory.
