ICML 2010 2nd Call for Papers

This is the second call for papers for the 27th International
Conference on Machine Learning (ICML-10), the premier conference
in the field. This year, ICML will be held in Haifa, Israel,
June 21-25, 2010, and will be co-located with the 23rd Conference
on Learning Theory (COLT-10).

process, etc. can be found at


Our invited speakers will be
* Nir Friedman (Hebrew University)
* Tom Mitchell (Carnegie Mellon University)
* Duncan Watts (Yahoo! Research)

A special invited application track is planned which will
feature machine learning applications that have appeared in other

We would also like to remind you that we are making a strong effort to
attract papers not only in areas that have seen high submission
numbers in the past years, but also in areas that have not been
strongly represented recently. The list of area chairs at

1st Call for Papers issued on 14 October 2009

The 27th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML-10) will be
held in Haifa, Israel, June 21-25, 2010, and will be co-located with the
23rd Conference on Learning Theory (COLT-10).

ICML 2010 invites submission of engagingly written 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substantial, original, and previously unpublished research in all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, to the learning of
predictive models, to cognition, or to interaction with the
environment. We welcome innovative applications, theoretical
contributions, carefully evaluated empirical studies, and we
particularly welcome work that combines all of these elements. We also
encourage submissions that bridge the gap between machine learning and
other fields of research.

To further strengthen and broaden participation in all areas of machine
learning, we followed an area-driven process for selecting the area
chairs and are confident that we have competent people for handling
submissions in /all/ areas of machine learning.

* October 12, 2009 Call for papers issued
* February 1, 2010 Full paper submissions due
(no separate abstract date)
Deadline: 11:59pm, Samoa time
* April 16, 2009 Acceptance notification
* June 21, 2010 ICML tutorials
* June 22-24, 2010 ICML conference
* June 25, 2010 Joint ICML/COLT workshop day
* June 26, 2010 Organized trip (Jerusalem or Nazareth)
* June 27-29, 2010 COLT conference


The conference will include three days of technical presentations, one
day of tutorials and one day of workshops. Accepted papers will each
have an oral presentation as well as a poster in an evening poster
session. Awards will be given for papers of outstanding quality. There
will also be talks by several invited speakers, and a banquet.


Submission of papers and the management of the paper reviewing process
will be entirely electronic. More instructions for authors can be found
at http://icml2010.haifa.il.ibm.com/.


The review process will be similar to last year’s process, but
incorporates some of the community feedback. Authors, reviewers, and
area chairs indicate subject areas. With the help of these subject
areas, area chairs bid for papers and one area chair is assigned to each
paper. During a first round of reviewing, each paper will receive two
reviews. First-round reviewers are assigned via subject areas and
bidding. As in recent years, authors will have the opportunity to see
and respond to the reviews before a final decision is made. Papers that
receive at least one positive review in the first round, or where
otherwise deemed necessary by the area chair, will receive one or more
additional reviews. These additional reviewers are manually selected by
the area chair. Final decisions will be made using the input from all
reviewers, the author feedback, the area chair, and the program chairs.
Reviewing for ICML 2010 will be blind to the identities of the authors.
No conditional accepts will be granted this year.

ICML 2010 will not accept any paper that is substantially similar to
another paper that is currently under review or has already been
accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Please
clearly indicate in the submission which contributions are novel and
which are previous work, either by the authors or others. If a paper
submitted to ICML 2010 and another already published or already
submitted paper contain substantial overlap in content and this overlap
is not clearly indicated (anonymously) as being previous work, then the
ICML submission may be rejected on the grounds of being a dual
submission. Similarly, authors must withdraw their papers if they submit
an overlapping paper elsewhere during ICML’s review period. For papers
published in substantially disjoint communities (application
conferences, for example), the amount of novel content a paper needs to
contain may be less, as long as the submitted papers are themselves
clearly targeted to a machine-learning audience.

With your help, we expect another excellent conference!
