ACML 2012

The 4th Asian Conference on Machine Learning (ACML2012) will be held on November 4-6, 2012, at the Singapore Management University, Singapore. The conference aims at providing a leading international forum for researchers in machine learning and related fields to share their new ideas and achievements. Submissions from other than the Asia-Pacific regions are also highly encouraged.

The conference program consist of tutorials, workshops, invited keynote talks by distinguished researchers as well as single track sessions of research paper presentations. The invited keynote speakers for ACML 2012 are James Rehg (Georgia Tech), Dale Schuurmans (University of Alberta), and Bob Williamson (Australian National University and NICTA).

The proceedings will be published as a volume of Journal of Machine Learning Research (JMLR): Workshop and Conference Proceedings. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit a significantly extended version of their paper to a post-conference special issue of the Machine Learning journal. The best student paper will receive an award sponsored by the Machine Learning journal.

This year, ACML will have a new feature: two submission deadlines. The late deadline has the usual “accept” or “reject” outcomes. The early deadline also has "conditional accept subject to required revisions", and “resubmit” with notification in time for them to make the final deadline. See the Call for Papers for details and submit through the paper submission site.
