UAI 2011 Call for Papers
The 27th Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (UAI
2011) will be located in Barcelona, Spain, on July 14-17, 2011. Sessions
will be held at the Campus
Roger de Lluria of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF). The
conference will happen just before the International
Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI).
UAI is the premier conference on issues relating to representation
and management of uncertainty within the field of Artificial Intelligence. UAI
is supported by the Association
for Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (AUAI).
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, robotics, and

Paper Submission Details
UAI 2011 requires electronic submission of papers and abstracts,
inserted in the confmaster system (http://uai.confmaster.net). Reviewing will be
double-blind, so authors should take care not to reveal their identities in
A regular submitted paper should not be under review by any other
conference at the time it is submitted to UAI 2011 nor at any time during the
reviewing period of UAI 2011. At the time of submission, a regular paper should
also not have already been accepted for publication in a journal. The standard
UAI paper length is eight (8) pages, including all figures and bibliography.
Authors may optionally purchase up to two (2) additional pages for a fee, the
cost of which will be determined later (in 2010 it was $150US/page). We note
that the confmaster paper submission site allows the optional submission of
supplementary material up to length 5MBs, which may contain proofs, background
material, and so on in support of the UAI2011 anonymous submission.
UAI has traditionally mostly attracted submissions from computer
scientists, even though reasoning under uncertainty is an important topic in
many other areas such as statistics, economics and philosophy. To accommodate
the publishing traditions of these fields, authors may submit working papers
that are under review in a journal, as NOT-FOR-PROCEEDINGS submissions. These
submissions will be subject to review and considered for presentation at the
conference but not for publication in the proceedings. These submissions need
not conform to the conference paper format. Abstracts (max. 1 page) of accepted
working papers will be included in the proceedings and must be coupled with a URL
that points to the full paper and that will be reliable for at least two years.
Open access is strongly preferred although the paper can be hosted by a
publisher who takes copyright and limits access, as long as there is a link to
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 Seventh Conference on Uncertainty in
Artificial Intelligence. The program committee will select papers for special
distinction in two categories at UAI 2011: a "Best Paper" award, and
a "Best Student Paper" award. The conference home page will contain
instructions for certifying student status with regards to the latter award.
