Call for papers

PGM 2022 is the eleventh edition of the International Conference on Probabilistic Graphical Models. It will take place in Almería (Spain, EU) between the 5th and the 7th of October 2022. The conference welcomes contributions on all aspects of graphical models, including but not limited to:

Principles of Bayesian (belief) networks, chain graphs, decision networks influence diagrams, probabilistic relational models, and other probabilistic graphical models (PGMs).
Information processing in PGMs (exact and approximate inference).
Learning and data mining in the context of PGMs: machine learning approaches, statistical testing and search methods, MCMC simulation.
Exploitation for the construction of PGMs of results from related disciplines such as statistics, information theory, optimization, deep learning, and decision making under uncertainty.
Software systems based on PGMs.
Application of PGMs to real-world problems.
Both theoretical and applied contributions are welcome.

Papers submitted for review should report on original, previously unpublished work. The deadline for abstract submissions is June 3rd, 2022 and the deadline for paper submissions is June 10th, 2022.

Accepted papers will be published electronically in a volume of the Proceedings of Machine Learning Research. Submission instructions and the author’s kit are available at the conference’s homepage. Each submission will go through a standard reviewing process. Papers will be accepted for either plenary or poster presentation, but, in the proceedings, no distinction is made between the two.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register for the conference.

IJAR Special Issue

Selected papers will be invited to be extended and then submitted to a special issue of the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning (IJAR).

Best student paper award

Our sponsor BayesFusion offers a best student paper award of 1000 US$.

Travel support grants for students

The artificial intelligence journal (AIJ) has sponsored a number of grants to support student travel. More information on how to apply will be provided once the registration period is open.
