Call for papers (pdf)
The 24th Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (UAI 2008) will take place on July 9-12, 2008 in Helsinki, Finland. UAI 2008 is co-located with COLT 2008, which takes place at the same time. Both UAI and COLT 2008 are preceeded by ICML 2008 in the same location, with a joint UAI/ICML/COLT workshop/tutorial day on July 9th.
We encourage submissions that report on theoretical or methodological advances in modeling, inference, learning and decision making under uncertainty. Submissions reporting on novel and insightful applications of these techniques within intelligent systems are also strongly encouraged. Examples of such application areas include, but are not limited to, computational biology, computer vision, speech processing, computational linguistics, information retrieval, medical systems, multi-agent systems and sensor networks.

UAI 2008 requires electronic submission of papers and abstracts according to instructions that can be found at http://uai2008.cs.helsinki.fi/submission.shtml.
A submitted paper should not be under review by any other conference or scientific journal at the time it is submitted to UAI 2008 nor at any time during the reviewing period of UAI 2008.
PRESENTATION, PROCEEDINGS, and AWARDS
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 Fourth Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence.
