UAI 2016 - Call for Workshops

The Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (UAI) is one of the premier international conference on research related to knowledge representation, learning, and reasoning in the presence of uncertainty. UAI 2016 will be held in Jersey City, New Jersey, on June 25-29. The conference will take place immediately after the ICML conference (June 19-24), which is located in NYC.

We invite proposals for Workshops to be held in conjunction with the Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (UAI) taking place in New York City, NY, USA, on June 25-29, 2016. The workshops will be held on June 29. These workshops present an excellent opportunity to address a specific topic of your choice, including but not limited to topics such as knowledge representation, machine learning, control, or optimization under uncertainty. We are looking for half-day or full-day workshop proposals.

    Workshops offer a great format for active and interdisciplinary 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 conference. 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 format, invite experts in the domain, be present to moderate the discussion and panels, and maintain a website for the workshop. Workshop registration will be handled centrally by the main conference.
