Call for papers:

The aim of the workshop is to bring together people interested in probabilistic graphical models and to provide
a forum for discussion of the latest research developments in this field. To promote interactions among the
participants, parallel sessions will be avoided and the workshop will be organised around a single thread of plenary
and poster sessions. We welcome theoretical and applied contributions related to various aspects of probabilistic
graphical models, such as:

- Principles of Bayesian (belief) networks, chain graphs, decision networks, influence diagrams,
probabilistic relational models, 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 for the construction of PGMs of results from related disciplines such as statistics,
information theory, optimization, and decision making under uncertainty.
- Software systems based on PGMs.
- Application of PGMs to real-world problems.

Papers submitted for review should report on original, previously unpublished work.
Each submitted paper will be reviewed by at least three reviewers.


All accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings.
At this stage, we are negotiating publication by a renowned publisher.

Submission procedure:

PGM 2014 requires electronic submission of papers according to the
instructions found on the web site of the workshop:
The authors must prepare their papers according to the Springer LNCS
format, and submit the full version of the papers by the deadline stated above.
The page limit is 16 pages, including figures and bibliography.
The web page for author instructions contains further format information
and provides access to style files and templates.

Paper presentation:

Papers will be accepted for plenary or poster presentation.
In the proceedings, no distinction is made between the two.
At least one author of accepted papers is required to register for the workshop.
After the workshop, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit
an extended version of their paper for a special issue of a journal, which is yet to be decided.
The extended papers will undergo a full reviewing process.

The workshop is hosted by the Department of Information and Computing Sciences,
