Abstract and Paper Submission

Electronic abstract and paper should be submitted through the ACML 2011 submission site:
Papers should be written in English and formatted according to the JMLR Workshop and Conference Proceedings format (jmlrwcp2e.sty and template.tex). The maximum length of papers is 16 pages in this format. Overlength submissions or submissions without appropriate format will be rejected without review. Paper submissions should ensure double-blind reviews. Please be sure to remove any information from your submission that can identify the authors, including author names, affiliations, self citations and any acknowledgments.

Proceedings will be published as a volume of JMLR: Workshop and Conference Proceedings (this is not equivalent to a regular issue of JMLR) at
Papers submitted to this conference must not have been published, accepted for publication or be under review for another conference or journal. Novelty is an important criterion in the selection of papers.

To encourage interdisciplinary contributions, ACML will welcome papers that address applications of machine learning in other areas.
For these application papers, the novelty will be judged based on the applications of machine learning methods. These papers will be evaluated differently for the algorithmic papers. Authors of these papers should choose "Applications" as the primary topic.

Submitting a paper to ACML 2011 means that if the paper is accepted, at least one author will attend the conference to present the paper. All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format only, before the deadline through the submission system.
