Call for Workshop Proposals
International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML-2002)

The ICML-2002 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held at the Nineteenth International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML-2002). ICML-2002 workshops will be held on the first day of the conference, 9 July, at the University of New South Wales, the site of all ICML-2002 events. Workshop proposals should be submitted as outlined below.

ICML workshops provide organizers and participants with an opportunity to focus intensively on a specific topic within machine learning. Often, workshops concentrate on an emerging topic of technical interest, a unique area of application for machine learning technologies or a community-wide issue that deserves specialized attention.


Workshop proposals should provide sufficient information to evaluate the quality and importance of the topic, the goals of the workshop, and the size of the interested community. Proposals should identify one or more chairs and several other individuals willing to serve on an organizing committee and assist with publicity and reviewing.

Proposals should be 2-4 pages and contain at least the following information:
