UAI 2018 - Camera-Ready Instructions

The camera-ready deadline is:

July 6th, 11:59pm SST (Samoa Standard Time)

When preparing revisions, please take reviewer comments into account, such as correcting typos, improving the clarity of the paper, adding relevant references, and so forth.

When you are ready, please follow these four simple steps to submit your camera-ready paper:
  1. Make sure your paper follows the UAI formatting guidelines.
    In particular, PLEASE pay attention to the following:
    • Include author names and other identifying information that were excluded from your original submission.
    • Use ALL CAPS for section headings (e.g., "INTRODUCTION")
    • Use Times Roman as the font. In LaTeX, \usepackage{times}
    • Double-check the paper size and margin widths
    • Check the references for typos and capitalization errors (e.g., "bayesian" should be "Bayesian")
    • In LaTeX, do NOT use \mathbbm{} (if you do, your paper will fail the formatting checker)
  2. Please download the updated style file and recompile your papers with it. For the camera-ready version we are only accepting files compiled with LaTeX 2e (if you used LaTeX 2.09 or a Word document please convert it to LaTeX 2e, for more information see the sample LaTeX 2e file here. The updated style file will ensure that all papers satisfy the UAI paper format.
  3. Different from the review version, in the camera-ready submission the main paper (with references) will be submitted separately to the supplementary material (as described in step #4 below). Make sure the length of the main paper without references does not exceed 9 pages. Any number of additional pages containing only references are allowed in the main paper. The supplementary material may be any length.
  4. Upload your paper to the automatic paper formatting checker. This checks your paper for basic formatting errors such as the wrong paper size or number of pages (If you are getting a Type 3 font error it is likely an issue with the fonts used in one of your plots. One common reason for this is that frequently plots made with the Python library matplotlib have such fonts. Please re-export your figures to ensure they do not have any Type 3 fonts. If you have any other errors please consult the formatting guide. Address all errors before proceeding. Please do not wait until the last day, since fixing formatting errors may take some time.
  5. Having finalized the camera-ready main paper PDF (without supplementary) and supplementary PDF, please log into OpenReview and upload your main paper PDF as a revision to your manuscript in OpenReview. Additionally, please upload your supplementary PDF in the separate designated field. Note that OpenReview will periodically check for formatting errors in camera-ready PDFs and send email reminders until these errors are corrected.
  6. Fill out the copyright release form. One author may sign on behalf of all co-authors if the appropriate box is ticked. You may sign it electronically using Acrobat or print, sign, and scan it into a PDF file. Upload the form in the designated field in OpenReview, which should now be visible.

And then you're done! July 6th, 11:59 pm SST. Late submissions may not be accepted.
