ICML 2012 - Call for Workshops

http://icml.cc/2012/call-for-workshops/

Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with
the International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) 2012
(co-located with COLT 2012). in  Edinburgh, Scotland. The workshops
will be held on Saturday, June 30 and Sunday July 1, 2012. These
workshops present an excellent opportunity to address a specific
machine learning-related topic of your choice. We are looking for
half-day, full-day, or two-day workshop proposals.

Important dates:

Workshop proposal deadline: Friday, February 10, 2012
Acceptance notification: Friday, March 2, 2012

Workshop submissions due May 7, 2012  (suggested date)
Workshop author notification May 21, 2012 (suggested date)

Workshop days: Saturday, June 30 and Sunday, July 1,  2012


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,
identification of open problems, or a "discussant" are all great
components to include.

Organization

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?)

Workshop proposals should be submitted via email in PDF format to
workshops@icml.cc by February 10, 2012 (earlier submissions are
encouraged as well). Soon after submission, proposers should
expect to receive a verification of receipt.
