UAI 2012 - Call for PapersWe are soliciting papers which describe novel methodology, or non-trivial applications of existing methodology, related to modeling, inference, learning and decision making under uncertainty. Examples of relevant 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 sensor networks. The best way to get a sense for what kinds of papers are appropriate is to look at past UAIs. Authors of papers that win best paper awards will be invited to submit their papers to the Artificial Intelligence Journal, with special "fast track" status.
