Call for Papers
Since 1985, the Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (UAI) has been the primary international forum for presenting new results on the use of principled methods for reasoning under uncertainty within intelligent systems. The scope of UAI is wide, including, but not limited to, representation, automated reasoning, learning, decision making and knowledge acquisition under uncertainty.
The UAI 2006 conference will be held at
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge Massachusetts. The main technical
session will be on July 14-16, and will be preceded with a tutorial program
on July 13. The conference is
collocated with AAAI 2006 that follows immediately after UAI 2006.
We encourage submissions that report on theoretical or methodological advances in representation, automated reasoning, learning, decision making and knowledge acquisition under uncertainty. Submissions reporting on other work relevant to uncertainty within intelligent systems are also welcome, as are submissions that report on intelligent systems in which uncertainty plays a key role.
Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated on the basis of originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. Papers submitted for review should represent original, previously unpublished work. A submitted paper should not be under review by any other conference or scientific journal at the time it is submitted to UAI-2006 nor at any time during UAI-2006's reviewing period.
UAI-2006 requires electronic submission of papers and abstracts according to instructions that will be posted on the conference home page. If authors have special circumstances that prevent electronic submission, arrangements can be made directly with the program co-chairs listed below. Authors are required to submit a title and a short abstract a week before the paper submission deadline. Submitted papers must be prepared according to the UAI-2006 proceedings format and must be no more than eight (8) pages long, including figures and bibliography. Papers that deviate from these guidelines will be rejected without review. The conference home page will contain format information and provide access to style files and templates.
Accepted papers will be presented at the conference in either plenary or poster sessions. At least one of the paper's authors should be present at the conference to present the work. All accepted papers will be included in the Proceedings of the Twenty Second Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence. The program committee will select papers for special distinction in two categories at UAI-2006: a "Best Paper" award, and an "Outstanding Student Paper" award. The conference home page will contain instructions for certifying student status with regards to the latter award.
