Here you have the possibility of submitting a paper about your solution for this challenge to be presented in our workshop (which will be held together with ECML/PKDD 2015). We remind you that the eligibility for challenge prizes depends on the submission of a paper to participate in this workshop (as previousily described in the challenge guidelines).

Submissions consist of a paper with a maximum of 12 pages in the Springer format. The papers should describe all the preprocessing and learning models adopted/developed to handle one or two of the proposed predictive challenges in detail. The obtained experimental results should be presented, along with a brief discussion. Each submission must be submitted online via the Easychair submission interface. Submissions can be updated at before the submission deadline. The only accepted format for submitted papers is PDF.

Each paper submission will be evaluated based on relevance, significance of contribution, technical quality, obtained results and quality of presentation. All accepted submissions will be included in the local conference proceedings (ECML/PKDD 2015). Electronic versions of accepted submissions will also be made publicly available through the conference web site. At least one author of each accepted full paper or extended abstract is required to attend the workshop to present their contribution.
