UAI 2015 - Call for Workshops

Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with the The Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (UAI) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in July 2015. The workshops will be held on Thursday, July 16, 2015 (tentative date). These workshops present an excellent opportunity to address a specific topic of your choice on the intersection of knowledge representation, machine learning and reasoning under uncertainty. We are looking for half-day or full-day workshop proposals.

Important dates

  • Workshop proposal deadline February 19, 2015
  • Proposal acceptance notification March 2, 2015
  • Workshop submissions due May 8, 2015 (suggested date)
  • Workshop author notification May 22, 2015 (suggested date)
  • Workshop day: July 16, 2015 (tentative)
  • Workshops are a great format for active 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 conferences. 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 workshop format, be present to moderate the discussion and panels, invite experts in the domain, and maintain a website for the workshop. Workshop registration will be handled centrally by the main conference.

    Submission Instructions

    Proposals should clearly specify the following:

  • Workshop title (what is it called?)
  • Topic (what is it about?)
  • Motivation (why a workshop on this topic?)
  • Impact and expected outcomes (what will having the workshop do?)
  • Potential list of invited speakers (who might come?)
  • List of related publications (where can we learn more?)
  • Main workshop organizer (who is making it happen?)
  • Other organizers (who else is making it happen?)
  • Bio for each organizer (who are you?)
  • Workshop URL (where will interested parties get more information?)
  • Detailed descriptions of last year's workshops can be found at:

    Workshop proposals should be submitted via email in PDF format to by February 19, 2015 (earlier submissions are encouraged as well). Soon after submission, proposers should expect to receive a verification of receipt.
