ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on ML 2011
Call for Content

The format of ML 2011 will continue the return in 2010 to a more informal model: a workshop with presentations selected from submitted abstracts. Presenters will be invited to submit working notes, source code, and extended papers for distribution to the attendees, but the workshop will not publish proceedings, so any contributions may be submitted for publication elsewhere. We hope that this format will encourage the presentation of exciting (if unpolished) research and deliver a lively workshop atmosphere.


We seek research presentations on topics related to ML, including but not limited to

Research presentations should describe new ideas, experimental results, significant advances in ML-related projects, or informed positions regarding proposals for next-generation ML-style languages. We especially encourage presentations that describe work in progress, that outline a future research agenda, or that encourage lively discussion.

In addition to research presentations, we seek both Status Reports and Demos that emphasize the practical application of ML research and technology.

Status Reports:
Status reports are intended as a way of informing others in the ML community about the status of ML-related research or implementation projects, as well as communicating insights gained from such projects. Status reports need not present original research, but should deliver new information. In the abstract submission, describe the project and the specific technical content to be presented.
Live demonstrations or tutorials should show new developments, interesting prototypes, or work in progress, in the form of tools, libraries, or applications built on or related to ML. In the abstract submission, describe the demo and its technical content, and be sure to include the demo's title, authors, collaborators, references, and acknowledgments. (Please note that you will need to provide all the hardware and software required for your demo; the workshop organizers are only able to provide a projector.)

Each presentation should take 20-25 minutes, except demos, which should take 10-15 minutes. The exact time will be decided based on the number of accepted submissions. We plan to make videos of the presentations available on ACM Digital Library.

Submission Instructions

Email submissions to ccshan AT Submissions should be at most two pages, in PDF format, and printable on US Letter or A4 sized paper. Persons for whom this poses a hardship should contact the program chair. Submissions longer than a half a page should include a one-paragraph synopsis suitable for inclusion in the workshop program.
