CALL FOR PAPERS (pdf)
The 25th International Conference On Machine Learning (ICML-2008)
July 5-9, 2008, Helsinki, Finland
ICML 2008 invites submission of papers on substantial, original, and previously unpublished research in all aspects of machine learning.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, learning predictive models, or interaction with the environment. We welcome innovative applications, theoretical contributions, carefully evaluated empirical studies, and we particularly welcome work that combines all of these. We also encourage submissions that bridge the gap between machine learning and other fields of research.
ICML 2008 will be held in Helsinki, Finland, July 5-9, 2008, and be co-located with the Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence Conference (UAI), and the Conference on Learning Theory (COLT), July 9-12.

Papers submitted to ICML 2008 will normally be reviewed by three (but at least two) referees. Authors will be given the opportunity to provide short feedback to the reviews before the final decision is made. Reviewing for ICML 2008 will be blind to the identities of the authors.
ICML 2008 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 which contributions are novel and which are previous work, either by the authors or others. If a paper submitted to ICML2008 and another already published or already submitted paper contain substantial overlap in content and the content is not clearly indicated (anonymously) as being previous work then the ICML submission may be rejected on the grounds of being a dual submission. Authors are also not permitted to submit their papers elsewhere during ICML's review period.
For workshops, see the ICML, UAI and COLT joint call for workshops at http://icml2008.cs.helsinki.fi/workshops.shtml. Calls for papers for the workshops will be issued later.
For tutorials, see the call for ICML tutorials at http://icml2008.cs.helsinki.fi/tutorials.shtml.
