               Call for Workshop and Tutorial Proposals
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------
 
The ICML 2005 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops and
tutorials to be held at the 22nd International Conference on Machine
Learning (ICML 2005), which will take place August 7-11, 2005, in Bonn,
Germany.  ICML 2005 will be co-located with ILP 2005 (15th International
Conference on Inductive Logic Programming, August 10-13) and will
closely
follow IJCAI 2005 (19th International Joint Conference on Artificial 
Intelligence, Edinburgh, July 30 - August 5).
 
The ICML 2005 workshops and tutorials will be held on August 7 and 11.
 
Workshops provide organizers and participants with an opportunity to
focus intensively on a specific topic in machine learning.  Workshops
can choose to concentrate on emerging research topics, but can also be
devoted to application issues, or to questions concerning the economic
and social aspects of machine learning.  Proposals that aim at a
cross-fertilization between machine learning and one of the topics of
the co-located conferences are particularly welcome.
 
Tutorials should provide an introduction and/or a review of the
state-of-the-art of a topic that is of interest to attendants of a
machine learning conference. These could be on particular research
topics within the two fields, but could also be on topics from other
research fields if the proposal makes clear why this is considered to
be an important topic for researchers from other areas. A tutorial
must be broad enough to cover a research area in which there is a
significant publication activity in the community.  Presentations that
focus on the presenters' own research results or commercial
presentations are not eligible.
 
For practical information on the workshops and tutorials, and for
details on the submission procedure, see below or refer to the detailed
calls for workshops and tutorials that are available at
http://icml2005.ais.fraunhofer.de/call_for_proposals.php 
 
Tutorial notes and working notes of the workshops will be made
available to participants in electronic form prior to the conference.
They will also be distributed at the conference itself (CD and paper
versions).

      How to Propose a Workshop
 
Workshop proposals should contain the necessary information for the
workshop chair and reviewers from the conference organizing committee
to judge the importance, quality and community interest in the
proposed topic. Each workshop should have one or more designated
organizers and a workshop program committee. When proposing a
workshop, please provide (at least) the following information:
 
    * Topic -- What will the workshop be about? Why do you believe
      this is an interesting and significant topic? Why is the topic
      best addressed in an ICML workshop, as opposed to a workshop at
      another conference or papers in an ICML technical session?
    * Goals -- What do you expect will come out of the workshop? How
      will the workshop change the participants' understanding of the
      area? Do you think it will have an impact on the Machine Learning
      community at large?
    * Intended audience -- From which areas do you expect potential
      participants to come? How many participants do you expect? Can you
      already name some of them?
    * Format -- How will the workshop sessions be scheduled? How much
      time will be used for discussion, panel discussions, paper
      presentations, invited talks, or other methods for encouraging
      communication and consensus? Organizers are encouraged to focus on
      mechanisms other than traditional paper presentations and to
      differentiate themselves clearly from typical conference sessions.
    * Publicity -- How do you intend to publicize the workshop? How
      will you reach the most interested and appropriate participants?
      Are there any plans to document the workshop results (beyond
      ICML's web publication)?
    * Organizers -- Please include the name, postal address, phone
      number, e-mail address, and webpage of all members of the program
      committee. In addition, indicate the organizers' background in the
      workshop area.
 
 
Proposals should be submitted in electronic form to:

How to Propose a Tutorial
 
Proposals should provide sufficient information to evaluate the
quality and importance of the topic, the likely quality of the
presentation materials, and the speakers' teaching ability. We
encourage tutorials taught by two-person teams because the added
perspective of a second presenter can provide richer, more balanced
coverage of an area. When proposing a tutorial, please provide (at
least) the following information:
 
    * Topic -- What will the tutorial be about? Why do you believe
      this is an interesting and significant subject for the machine
      learning community at large?
    * Intended audience -- From which areas do you expect potential
      participants to come? Which prior knowledge, if any, do you
      expect from the audience? What will the participants learn? How
      many participants do you expect?
    * Content -- Provide a detailed outline of the topics to be
      presented, including estimates for the time that will be devoted
      to each subject. If possible, provide samples of past tutorial
      slides or teaching materials. In case of multiple presenters,
      specify how you will distribute the work.
    * Format -- How will you present the material? Will there be
      multi-media parts of the presentation? Do you plan software
      demonstrations? Specify any extraordinary technical equipment
      that you would need. Will the tutorial be full-day or half-day?
    * Presenters -- Please include the name, postal address, phone
      number, e-mail address, and webpage of all presenters. In
      addition, indicate the presenters' background and a list of
      publications in the tutorial area.
