            ICML 2013 Call for Workshop Proposals
###############################################

Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in
conjunction with the International Conference on Machine
Learning (ICML) 2013 in Atlanta, USA. The workshops will
be held on Thursday, June 20 and Friday June 21, 2013.
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 Dec 1, 2012
 Acceptance notification Jan 1, 2013
 Workshop submissions due Mar 1, 2013 (suggested date)
 Workshop author notification Mar 31, 2013 (suggested date)
 Workshops June 20-21, 2013

Workshops are a great format for active research on new
topics. The ideal workshop covers a compelling selection
of current and upcoming research, and includes an
impressive set of speakers and participants with diverse
backgrounds. Research talks, discussion via panels,
identification of open problems, and discussants are all
great components to include.

Organization

The format, style, and content of accepted workshops are
under the control of the workshop organizers and largely
autonomous from the main conference. Each workshop day
can be up to seven hours long, split into morning and
afternoon sessions. Workshop organizers are expected to
manage the workshop content, invite experts in the domain,
specify the workshop format, be present to moderate, 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, impact, and expected outcomes
  (why this workshop?)
 Organizer; co-organizers; bios (who is making it happen?)
 Potential invited speakers; potential participants
  (who might come?)
 Related publications (where can we learn more?)

Detailed descriptions of last year's workshops can be found at:
  http://icml.cc/2012/workshops/

Workshop proposals should be submitted via email in PDF
format to workshops@icml2013.org by the due date (earlier
submissions are encouraged as well). Proposals will be
evaluated by the workshop chair and conference organizers,
with an eye towards selecting high-quality workshops on a
diverse set of topics that will inform and inspire the
community.
