ACML 2012 : Asian Conference on Machine Learning
Conference Series : Asian Conference on Machine Learning
Call For Papers
The 4th Asian Conference on Machine Learning (ACML2012) will be held on November 4-6, 2012, at the Singapore Management University, Singapore. The conference aims at providing a leading international forum for researchers in machine learning and related fields to share their new ideas and achievements. The conference program consist of tutorials, workshops, invited keynote talks by distinguished researchers as well as single track sessions of research paper presentations. The invited keynote speakers for ACML 2012 are
James Rehg (Georgia Tech),
Dale Schuurmans (University of Alberta), and
Bob Williamson (Australian National University and NICTA).
The conference solicits research papers reporting original investigation results and proposals focusing on frontier research in all aspects of machine learning. Submissions from other than the Asia-Pacific regions are also highly encouraged. Each paper will be rigorously reviewed by at least three reviewers and reviewing is double-blind. The proceedings will be published after the conference as a volume of Journal of Machine Learning Research(JMLR): Workshop and Conference Proceedings. Besides, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit a significantly extended version of their paper to a post-conference special issue of the Machine Learning journal. The best student paper will receive an award sponsored by the Machine Learning journal.
Please submit your paper(s) at the paper submission site. Each submission should be regarded as an undertaking that, if the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors must attend the conference to present the work. No-show papers will not be included in the proceedings.
This year ACML will have a new feature: two submission deadlines. The late deadline has the usual “accept” or “reject” outcomes. In addition to the two outcomes, the early deadline also has "conditional accept subject to required revisions", and “resubmit” with notification in time for them to make the final deadline. The submission of "conditional accept" decision is strongly encouraged to carefully address the review comments in their revision. The revision without addressing the review comments properly might be rejected. The submission of "resubmit" decision must be significantly improved and revised before it can be re-submitted in the late deadline. Fresh submissions that have not caught up with the early deadline are also welcome for the late deadline.
Further details about policies regarding paper formats, paper submission, dual submission, and conference no-shows are at the conference website.
