Since 1985, the Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence 
(UAI) has been the primary international forum for presenting new 
results on the use of principled methods for reasoning under uncertainty 
within intelligent systems. The scope of UAI is wide, including, but not 
limited to, representation, automated reasoning, learning, decision 
making and knowledge acquisition under uncertainty.

The UAI 2006 conference will be held at Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology (MIT), Cambridge Massachusetts. The main technical session 
will be on July 14-16, and will be preceded with a tutorial program on 
July 13. The conference is collocated with AAAI 2006 that follows 
immediately after UAI 2006.


We encourage submissions that report on theoretical or methodological 
advances in representation, automated reasoning, learning, decision 
making and knowledge acquisition under uncertainty. Submissions 
reporting on other work relevant to uncertainty within intelligent 
systems are also welcome, as are submissions that report on intelligent 
systems in which uncertainty plays a key role.

Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated on the basis of 
originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of 
exposition. Papers submitted for review should represent original, 
previously unpublished work. A submitted paper should not be under 
review by any other conference or scientific journal at the time it is 
submitted to UAI-2006 nor at any time during UAI-2006's reviewing period.

UAI-2006 requires electronic submission of papers and abstracts 
according to instructions that will be posted on the conference home 
page. If authors have special circumstances that prevent electronic 
submission, arrangements can be made directly with the program co-chairs 
listed below. Authors are required to submit a title and a short 
abstract a week before the paper submission deadline. Submitted papers 
must be prepared according to the UAI-2006 proceedings format and must 
be no more than eight (8) pages long, including figures and 
bibliography. Papers that deviate from these guidelines will be rejected 
without review. The conference home page will contain format information 
and provide access to style files and templates.

Accepted papers will be presented at the conference in either plenary or 
poster sessions. At least one of the paper's authors should be present 
at the conference to present the work. All accepted papers will be 
included in the Proceedings of the Twenty Second Conference on 
Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence. The program committee will 
select papers for special distinction in two categories at UAI-2006: a 
"Best Paper" award, and an "Outstanding Student Paper" award. The 
conference home page will contain instructions for certifying student 
status with regards to the latter award.
