In addition to the abstracts for presentation in the original call, we also
welcome abstract submissions for a poster presentation (for example,
on BN projects that are at planning or preliminary modeling stages).



for the Inaugural Annual Meeting of the Australasian Bayesian
Network Modellers Society (ABNMS-09)

                November 26 & 27, 2009

                 Melbourne, Australia

Bayesian networks have become a significant tool in a rapidly
emerging area of applied AI in Australasia. The Society has
been established to support the use and development of BNs,
to further the technology and advance applications.

The organising committee for ABNMS-09 is pleased to invite submission
of abstracts for presentation at our meeting.

We are in interested hearing about any aspect of modelling with
Bayesian Networks (BNs). This includes:

* Applications
* BN Software Tools
* Knowledge engineering methodologies
* Elicitation techniques
* Integrating BNs in broader decision support systems
* Learning BNs from data (parameters and/or structure)

Key dates:

* Abstract Submission (1-2 pages): Friday 23rd October
* Notification of acceptance: Wednesday 28th October
* Program Finalised: Friday 30th October

In addition to presentations, our 2-day meeting will include an
introductory tutorial on BN technology, panel discussion,
opportunities for socialising, and our first organsational meeting.

Instructions for abstract submission, and for registration (now open),
can be found at


We hope to see you there.
