This volume constitutes the proceedings of the Eighth European Conference on Machine Learning ECML-95, held in Heraclion, Crete in April 1995.
Besides four invited papers the volume presents revised versions of 14 long papers and 26 short papers selected from a total of 104 submissions. The papers address all current aspects in the area of machine learning; also logic programming, planning, reasoning, and algorithmic issues are touched upon.
