CFP: International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) 2007

ICML 2007
24th International Conference on Machine Learning

June 20-24, 2007
Corvallis, Oregon, USA

ICML 2007 invites submission of papers on substantial, original, and
previously unpublished research in all aspects of machine learning.
We welcome submissions of innovative work on systems that are self
adaptive, systems that improve their own performance, or systems that
apply logical, statistical, probabilistic or other formalisms to the
analysis of data, learning predictive models, or interaction with the
environment.  We welcome theoretical contributions, carefully
evaluated empirical studies, and we particularly welcome work that
combines both.  We also encourage submissions that bridge the gap
between machine learning and other fields of research.

ICML 2007 will be co-located with the 17th Annual International
Conference on Inductive Logic Programming (ILP 2007).



Feb 7:          Abstract submissions due
Feb 9:          Paper submissions due
Jun 19-21:      ILP Conference (co-located)
Jun 20-24:      ICML Conference


Format of the Conference

The conference will include three days of technical presentations
along with one day of tutorials and one day of workshops.  The
conference will also feature poster sessions and informal gatherings
designed to foster discussion of research in machine learning.
Accepted papers will each be given an oral presentation and also
featured in evening poster sessions, to allow conference attendees
to discuss the work with the authors at greater length. The ICML
program will also feature talks by several invited speakers.

Paper Submission

The deadline for abstract submissions to ICML 2007 is Wednesday,
February 7th, 2007.  The deadline for full papers is Friday, February
9th, 2007. Abstract submission by the 7th is required for each full
paper; abstracts for which full papers are not submitted will be
ignored. The submission process will be entirely electronic.
Authors should submit papers using the same format and length as will
be required for the final proceedings version. Detailed instructions,

Authors should submit papers using the same format and length as will
be required for the final proceedings version. Detailed instructions,
as well as templates for LaTeX and Word, will be available on the
website.  ICML 2007 will not accept any paper which, at the time of
submission, is under review or has already been accepted for
publication in a journal or another conference. Authors are also
expected not to submit their papers elsewhere during ICML's review

Review Process

Papers submitted to ICML 2007 will normally be reviewed by three (but
at least two) referees. Authors will be given the opportunity to
provide a short feedback to the reviews before the final decision is
made.  Reviewing for ICML 2007 will be blind to the identities of the
