UAI 2015 - Call for Workshops


Proposals  are  solicited  for workshops to be held in conjunction with the
The   Conference   on  Uncertainty  in  Artificial  Intelligence  (UAI)  in
Amsterdam,  The  Netherlands,  in  July 2015. The workshops will be held on
Thursday,  July  16,  2015  (tentative  date).  These  workshops present an
excellent  opportunity  to  address  a specific topic of your choice on the
intersection  of  knowledge  representation, machine learning and reasoning
under  uncertainty.  We  are  looking  for  half-day  or  full-day workshop

Important dates
      Workshop proposal deadline February 19, 2015
      Proposal acceptance notification March 2, 2015
      Workshop submissions due May 8, 2015 (suggested date)
      Workshop author notification May 22, 2015 (suggested date)
      Workshop day: July 16, 2015 (tentative)

Workshops  are  a great format for active research on new topics. The ideal
workshop  covers  a compelling subject of current or upcoming research, and
includes  an impressive set of speakers with diverse backgrounds to discuss
the  subject. Discussion via panels and identification of open problems and
challenges are great components to include.


The  format,  style, and content of accepted workshops is under the control
of   the   workshop   organizers  and  largely  autonomous  from  the  main
conferences.  The  workshops  can  be  up  to  seven hours long, split into
morning  and afternoon sessions. Workshop organizers are expected to manage
the  workshop  content, specify the workshop format, be present to moderate
the  discussion  and  panels,  invite experts in the domain, and maintain a
website  for  the workshop. Workshop registration will be handled centrally
by the main conference.

Submission Instructions

Proposals should clearly specify the following:
      Workshop title (what is it called?)
      Topic (what is it about?)
      Motivation (why a workshop on this topic?)
      Impact and expected outcomes (what will having the workshop do?)
      Potential list of invited speakers (who might come?)
      List of related publications (where can we learn more?)
      Main workshop organizer (who is making it happen?)
      Other organizers (who else is making it happen?)
      Bio for each organizer (who are you?)
      Workshop URL (where will interested parties get more information?)

Workshop  proposals  should  be  submitted  via  email  in  PDF  format  to
uai2015.workshops at gmail.com  by  February 19, 2015 (earlier submissions are
encouraged  as  well).  Soon  after  submission, proposers should expect to
receive a verification of receipt.
