    Formatting instructions

    Submissions should be formatted in the UAI format and must be submitted as a PDF file that uses only Type I fonts. Please do not make changes to the standard format. Papers (including figures and text) are limited to 9 pages in length. An additional 10th page is allowed containing only references. Papers that are over length or violate the UAI proceedings format will be rejected without review.

    For your convenience, we are providing the following LaTeX style files:

  • LaTeX 2.09 style file
  • LaTeX 2e style file
  • For an example of how to prepare a paper for UAI using LaTeX you can refer to the source of the proceedings format:

  • LaTeX 2.09 sample file
  • LaTeX 2e sample file
  • Using LaTeX is really the only way to achieve perfect compatibility with the UAI proceedings format, but we also provide a MS Word template.

    Uploading instructions

    In order to submit please go to CMT and create a new account (if you haven't already) and sign in. Once signed in you will be required to enter possible conflict domains (e.g., but not something too general like with multiple domains separated by a semicolon.

    You can then submit your paper by clicking on "Create a new Paper Submission" and providing the paper details (title, abstract, author, subject areas, .pdf file). Note that papers must be .pdf files with sizes limited to 10mb. Indicate whether the paper is a student paper, and click on “Submit”.

    You will next be brought to a page where you are required to mark conflict of interests with individual reviewers. You can also request an email confirmation of your submission.

    After that, go “Back to Author Console”, where you can edit the submission at any point up to the deadline, and provide supplementary materials as a .pdf or .zip file of up to 10mb in size. Note that reviewers are under no obligation to look at the submitted supplementary materials, and will base their review primarily on the main paper.

    Double-blind policy

    The UAI 2016 review process is double blind. Please make sure that the submission does not disclose the author's identities or affiliation.
