Contributions describing applications of machine learning (ML) techniques to 
real-world problems, interdisciplinary research involving machine learning, 
experimental and/or theoretical studies yielding new insights into the design 
of ML systems, and papers describing development of new analytical frameworks 
that advance practical machine learning methods are especially encouraged.
Paper Submission
High quality papers in all Machine Learning areas are solicited. Papers that 
present new directions will receive careful and supportive reviews. Authors are 
expected to ensure that their final manuscripts are original and are not 
appearing in other publications. Paper should be limited to 6 pages and 
submitted in IEEE format (double column). Papers will be reviewed by the Program 
Committee on the basis of technical quality, originality, significance and 
clarity. All submissions will be handled electronically. Accepted papers will be 
published in the conference proceedings, as a hardcopy. A selected number of 
accepted papers will be invited for possible inclusion, in an expanded and 
revised form, in some special journal issues.
ICMLA'10 Best Paper Award and ICMLA'10 Best Poster Award will be conferred at 
the conference to the authors of the best research paper and best poster 
presentation, respectively, based on the reviewers and Programme Committee 
recommendations. Detailed instructions for submitting papers can be found at

Proposals for Special Sessions, Workshops and Tutorials
We invite submission of proposals for special sessions, workshops and tutorials. 
Special sessions and workshops can be from  to 3 days long. Proposals should 
include the following information:
 - name and address of the proposer(s)
 - title of the session/workshop/tutorial
 - a description of the session/workshop/tutorial including the scope and aims 
of the session/workshop/tutorial, a short bio of the organizer(s), 
preliminary committee members.
Each special session/workshop will have at least five paper presentations.
Special session/workshop chairs will be responsible for soliciting the papers, 
organizing the reviews, and making final decisions in consultation with the 
conference chairs.
