   22nd Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence

                      July 13-16, 2006



Call for Participation

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. We encourage 
submissions of papers to UAI-2006 that report on advances in these core 
areas, as well as those dealing with insights derived from the 
construction and use of applications involving uncertain reasoning.

In addition to the presentation of technical papers 
(http://www.ics.uci.edu/~csp/uai2006/papers.html), we have four 
distinguished invited speakers 
   Sander Greenland (University of California, Los Angeles),
   Stuart M.  Shieber  (Harvard University),
   Matthew Stephens (University of Washington) and
   Pascal Van Hentenryck (Brown University)

and a full-day course on Advanced Topics in Uncertainty in Artificial 
Intelligence  consisting of tutorials
(http://www.ics.uci.edu/~csp/uai2006/tutorials.html) by:
   Adnan Darwiche (University of California, Los Angeles),
   David Poole (University of British Columbia),
   Peter Spirtes (Carnegie Mellon University) and
   Jin Tian (Iowa State University).

This year will also see the introduction of the first software 
competition for evaluating various probabilistic inference algorithms. 
The competition will take place in June, prior to the conference, with 
the results presented during a special session at the
