CALL FOR ICML/COLT 2010 WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

This is a call for workshop proposals for ICML & COLT 2010 in Haifa,
Israel (http://www.icml2010.org and http://www.colt2010.org). 
The workshop will take place on June 25, in between ICML June 21-24
and COLT June 27-29. This two day slot presents an excellent
opportunity for you to organize a workshop on the machine
learning-related topic of your choice.

Workshop day:             June 25, 2010, Haifa, Israel
Proposal deadline:        Monday, January 18, 2010
Acceptance notification:  Monday, February 8, 2010

Workshops are a great format for active research on new topics. The
ideal workshop covers a compelling subject of current or upcoming
research, and includes an impressive set of speakers with diverse
backgrounds to discuss the subject. Discussion via panels,
identification of open problems, or a "discussant" are all great
components to include.

Organization

The format, style, and content of accepted workshops is under the
control of the workshop organizers and largely autonomous from the main
conferences. The workshops can be up to seven hours long, split into
morning and afternoon sessions. Workshop organizers are expected to
manage the workshop content, specify the workshop format, be present to
moderate the discussion and panels, invite experts in the domain, and
maintain a website for the workshop. Workshop registration will be
handled centrally by the main conference with a single uniform
registration fee and with registrants allowed to attend workshops other
than the one they register for.

Submission Instructions

Proposals should specify clearly all of the following:

   * Workshop title (what is it called?)
   * Topic (what is it about?)
   * Motivation (why a workshop on this topic?)
   * Impact and expected outcomes (what will having the workshop do?)
   * Potential list of invited speakers (who might come?)
   * List of related publications (where can we learn more?)
   * Main workshop organizer (who is making it happen?)
   * Other organizers (who else is making it happen?)
   * Bio for each organizer (who are you?)
   * Workshop URL (where will interested parties get more information?)
   * Relevant conferences (which of ICML and COLT would it appeal to?)

This information should be sent by email (in plain text or pdf format)
to workshops@icml2010.org by January 18.
