UAI 2013 - Call for Papers

We solicit submission of papers which describe novel theories, methodology, and applications related to modeling, inference, learning and decision-making under uncertainty. Paper submission and reviewing will be handled electronically.

All accepted papers will be presented at the Conference either as contributed talks or as posters, and will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Papers that are currently under review or have already been accepted or published in a refereed venue, including conferences and journals, may not be submitted. We welcome submissions by authors who are new to the UAI conference on new and emerging topics - examples of topics and papers published at past conferences can be found at this link.

Submitted papers will be reviewed based on their novelty, technical quality, potential impact, and clarity of writing. For papers that rely heavily on empirical evaluations, the experimental methods and results should be clear, well executed, and repeatable. Authors are strongly encouraged to make data and code publicly available when possible.
