UAI 2016

Call for Papers

Example Topics


There are two possible submission formats. The authors can either submit:

Full Papers

If a contribution consists of material that has been published elsewhere earlier, the authors must indicate this in their submission and cite the original work. We will give preference to original work.

Our submission deadline comes a few days after the UAI author notification deadline. We encourage co-submission of (full) papers that have been submitted to the main UAI 2016 conference. Please indicate if your paper was also submitted to UAI. If accepted for UAI, the paper will be published in the UAI proceedings, but we may also invite the authors to give a (oral or poster) presentation at the workshop.

Style files for full papers can be found on the UAI website. As with the main conference, please prepare your paper for double-blind review, i.e. without author information in the paper itself.

Open Problems

This year we will try to include a session on Open Problems in Causality. We encourage submissions of succinct descriptions (one page) of the problem and will invite authors to give a short presentation at the workshop, followed by discussion. The Open Problems proposals will only be reviewed by the workshop committee in order to avoid presentations on problems that are ill-posed or obviously resolved. We very much hope that there will be interest in such a session, not just as an audience member, but also as a contributor.

Open problem proposals and full papers must be submitted via e-mail by the deadline (June 1 and May 11, respectively) to uai2016.causalityworkshop@gmail.com.

Contributions will be peer reviewed by at least two reviewers. Accepted papers will be presented either as oral presentation or in a poster session.


After the workshop we will publish proceedings via this web-page and on CEUR-WS, assuming we can satisfy their length criteria.

Authors of accepted papers can choose to contribute the submitted manuscript. They can also choose not to contribute to the proceedings.

Oral presentation slides will also be disseminated via this web-page.
