We are looking for extended abstracts of max 3 pages following the two-column ICML formatting guidelines. Papers will be reviewed normally by three (at least two) referees.

In addition to original contributions we will consider abstracts based on recently published outstanding works, given that the original papers are adequately cited and the status is clearly stated in the covering letter. Authors of selected original papers will be encouraged to submit to a special issue of Machine Learning journal.

Since we would like to hear about your most recent and best research results, there will be no formal proceedings that could prevent you from submitting your contribution to other venues.
