    21st Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence 
                     First Call for Papers 

                       July 26-29, 2005 


Conference Details: 

Since 1985, the Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence
(UAI) has been the primary international forum for presenting new
results on the use of principled methods for reasoning under
uncertainty within intelligent systems. The scope of UAI is wide,
including, but not limited to, representation, automated reasoning,
learning, decision making and knowledge acquisition under uncertainty.

The UAI 2005 conference will be held at the University of Edinburgh,
Edinburgh, Scotland. The main technical session will be on July 26-29,
and will be preceded with a tutorial program on July 25. The
conference is collocated with IJCAI 2005 that follows immediately
after UAI 2005.

Paper Submission: 

We encourage submissions that report on theoretical or methodological
advances in representation, automated reasoning, learning, decision
making and knowledge acquisition under uncertainty. Submissions
reporting on other work relevant to uncertainty within intelligent
systems are also welcome, as are submissions that report on
intelligent systems in which uncertainty plays a key role.

Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated on the basis of
originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of
exposition. Papers submitted for review should represent original,
previously unpublished work. A submitted paper should not be under
review by any other conference or scientific journal at the time it is
submitted to UAI-2005 nor at any time during UAI-2005's reviewing

UAI-2005 requires electronic submission of papers and abstracts
according to instructions that will be posted on the conference home
page. If authors have special circumstances that prevent electronic
submission, arrangements can be made directly with the program
co-chairs listed below. Authors are required to submit a title and a
short abstract a week before the paper submission deadline. Submitted
papers must be prepared according to the UAI-2005 proceedings format
and must be no more than eight (8) pages long, including figures and
bibliography.  Papers that deviate from these guidelines will be
rejected without review. The conference home page will contain format
information and provide access to style files and templates.

Accepted papers will be presentation at the conference in either
plenary or poster sessions. At least one of the paper's authors should
be present at the conference to present the work. All accepted papers
will be included in the Proceedings of the Twenty First Conference on
Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence. The program committee will
select papers for special distinction in two categories at UAI-2005: a
"Best Paper" award, and an "Outstanding Student Paper" award. The
conference home page will contain instructions for certifying student
status with regards to the latter award.
