UAI 2021 - Subject Areas

When submitting a paper, you will be asked to select one primary subject area, and up to 5 secondary subject areas from the sets of terms below.
The terms have been grouped to provide a somewhat systematic overview of topics relevant to the UAI conference.
For example, a paper about a new approximate inference algorithm for dynamic Bayesian network with applications to a problem in biology could select the combination *primary = Models: (Dynamic) Bayesian networks, secondary = [Application: Computational Biology, Algorithms: Approximate Inference]* and so on.

The list of subject areas appears to authors and reviewers in the CMT conference management system. Below you find a list for your reference.
