The 5th Asian Conference on Machine Learning invites proposals for workshops to be held on Wed 13 Nov, 2013, at the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia. The conference aims at providing a leading international forum for researchers in machine learning and related fields to share their new results, ideas and discuss emerging topics. Submissions from outside the Asia-Pacific region is also highly encouraged.
