    • Ensemble methods
    • Feature selection/extraction/construction
    • Incremental learning and on-line learning
    • Learning in graphs and networks
    • Multi-agent learning
    • Multi-instance learning
    • Reinforcement learning
    • Semi-supervised learning
    • Supervised learning
      • Classification, regression, ranking, structured, logical
    • Transfer and multi-task learning
    • Unsupervised learning
      • Clustering, deep learning, latent variable models
    • Other learning problems
  • Analysis of learning systems
    • Computational learning theory
    • Experimental evaluation methodology
    • Others
  • Applications
    • Bioinformatics
    • Collaborative filtering
    • Computer vision
    • Information retrieval
    • Mobile and pervasive computing
    • Natural language processing
    • Social networks
    • Web search
    • Other applications
  • Learning in knowledge-intensive systems
    • Knowledge refinement and theory revision
    • Multi-strategy learning
    • Other systems
  • Other learning problems
Proceedings will be published as a volume of JMLR: Workshop and Conference Proceedings (this is not equivalent to a regular issue of JMLR).

Paper Format

The papers must be in English and formatted according to the JMLR Workshop and Conference Proceedings format (jmlrwcp2e.sty and template.tex). The maximum length of papers is 16 pages in this format. Overlength submissions or submissions without appropriate format will be rejected without review. Paper submissions are double-blind. Please be sure to remove any identifying information from your submission, including author names, affiliations, and any acknowledgments.

Paper Submission

All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format only, before the deadline through the submission system.

Submission Policy

Before submitting your paper, please carefully read and agree with the submission policy.

  1. The paper must fit the scope of ACML2010.
  2. The paper must conform to the required format and page limitations.
  3. The submitted papers must not be submitted to any other conferences before or during the ACML2010 review process. A journal submission may be concurrent, but would be expected to have significant additional material not in the conference submission, and the final revision should not have been submitted until the ACML2010 reviews have been made available to the authors. Ideally the final journal version should be prepared after the conference, in order that feedback from the conference can be included.
  4. Plagiarism is unacceptable.
    • The verbatim copy and/or reuse of material (text, formula, graphics) from other published papers (either by the author or by other authors) without explicit citation, is considered to be plagiarism. Quotations should be clearly identified and include the appropriate citation. For example, "According to Smith and Jones (2008) '......'", or "'......' (Smith and Jones, 2008)".
    • When a new submission is based on the authors or on other author's previously published works, the citation of the previous works should be clearly provided. Furthermore, the novel contribution of the submitted paper, which extends the previous works, should be clearly indicated.
  5. Double-blind review.
    • The names of the authors and the institutions should not appear in the paper.
    • Unpublished work of the authors should not be cited.
    • Using "we" or "us" in reviews of literatures should be avoided, e.g. "In [1] we have proposed..." should be revised to "In [1] the authors have proposed...".
  6. Submitting a paper to the conference means that if the paper is accepted, at least one author will attend the conference to present the paper.
