Preliminary Call for papers
The 25th Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (UAI
2009) will take place on June 19-21, 2009 in Montreal, Canada. UAI
2009 is co-located with ICML 2009 and COLT 2009, and will take place
following ICML 2009 and concurrently with COLT 2009. There will also
be a joint UAI/ICML/COLT workshop day on June 18th.
We encourage submissions that report on theoretical or methodological
advances in modeling, inference, learning and decision making under
uncertainty. Submissions reporting on novel and insightful
applications of these techniques within intelligent systems are also
strongly encouraged. Examples of such application areas include, but
are not limited to, computational biology, computer vision, speech
processing, computational linguistics, information retrieval, medical
systems, multi-agent systems, robotics, and sensor networks.

PAPER SUBMISSION DETAILS
UAI 2009 requires electronic submission of papers and abstracts according
to instructions at http://www.cs.mcgill.ca/~uai2009.
This year, reviewing will be double-blind, so authors should take care not
to review their identities in their submission.
A submitted paper should not be under review by any other conference at
the time it is submitted to UAI 2009 nor at any time during the reviewing
period of UAI 2009. At the time of submission, a paper should also not
have already been accepted for publication in a journal.
PRESENTATION, PROCEEDINGS, and AWARDS
Accepted papers will be presented at the conference in either plenary or
poster sessions. At least one of the paper's authors should be present at
the conference to present the work. All accepted papers will be included
in the Proceedings of the Twenty Fifth Conference on Uncertainty in
Artificial Intelligence. The program committee will select papers for
special distinction in two categories at UAI 2009: a "Best Paper" award,
and a "Best Student Paper" award. The conference home page will contain
instructions for certifying student status with regards to the latter
