Proposals are solicited for one-day workshops to be held as part of the ICMLA conference (Dec. 3 - 5, 2014). Topics should be in the general areas of machine learning and its applications. Indeed, workshops bridging these areas, or presenting new perspectives in these areas are particularly welcome. A full list of current topics of interest can be found in the ICMLA general call for papers.
ICMLA workshops provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conference itself. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organizers, but it is expected that workshops will contain ample time for general discussion and engagement by all participants - not just those presenting papers. Workshops that foster interaction, discussion, collaboration, and group problem-solving are especially encouraged.
The organizers of approved workshops are expected to define the workshop's focus, gather and review submissions, and decide upon final program content. Organizers (including co-organizers) are expected to attend their entire workshop and to provide an article for dissemination summarizing the event.
Workshop proposals should be submitted in PDF format by email to the ICMLA 2014 Workshop Chairs: Bo Luo (bluo AT ku dot edu) and Jacqueline Whalley (jwhalley AT aut dot ac dot nz) by May 1, 2014.
Accepted workshop papers will also be published in the ICMLA workshop proceedings, which will be printed on CD only and indexed in the IEEE digital library, together with the main ICMLA 2014 proceedings. Thus, the timeline to print proceedings must be planned with the ICMLA proceedings schedule. Any queries should be directed to the workshop chairs.
