PGM 2012 : Probabilistic Graphical Models 2012
Conference Series : Probabilistic Graphical Models
Call For Papers
Probabilistic Graphical Models (PGM2012) Workshop
Granada, Spain, 19-21 September 2012 (http://leo.ugr.es/pgm2012)
Call for papers:
The aim of the workshop is to bring together people interested in probabilistic
graphical models and provide a forum for discussion of the latest research
developments in this field. The workshop is organized so as to facilitate
discussions and collaboration among the participants also outside the workshop
sessions. To facilitate the spreading of research results and promote interactions
among the participants, parallel sessions will be avoided and the workshop will be
organized around a single thread of plenary and posters sessions.
We welcome theoretical and applied contributions related to the following topics:
- Principles of Bayesian (belief) networks, chain graphs, decision networks, influence
diagrams, and other probabilistic graphical models (PGMs).
- Information processing in PGMs (exact and approximate inference).
- Learning and data mining in the context of PGMs: machine learning approaches,
statistical testing and search methods, MCMC simulation.
- Exploitation of results from related disciplines for the construction of PGMs, e.g.,
statistics, information theory, optimization, decision making under uncertainty,
multivariate statistical analysis.
- Software systems based on PGMs.
- Application of PGMs to real-world problems.
We invite submissions that concern one or more of the above topics, or any other
aspects related to probabilistic graphical models. Papers submitted for review
should report on original, previously unpublished work. Each submitted paper will
be reviewed by at least two reviewers.
PGM 2012 requires electronic submission of papers according to the instructions found
on the web page http://leo.ugr.es/pgm2012/author-instructions.php. The authors must
prepare their papers according to the PGM proceedings format, and submit the full
version of the papers by the deadline found below. The page limit is 8 pages, including
figures and bibliography. The page for author instructions contains format information
and provides access to style files and templates.
Papers will be accepted for plenary or poster presentation. All accepted papers will
be included in the proceedings (with ISBN), which will be made available at the
workshop reception. At least one author of accepted papers is expected to attend the
workshop. After the workshop, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an
extended version of their paper to appear in a special issue of a high quality
journal. All of the submitted papers will undergo a full reviewing process.
