The 15th Bayesian Modelling Applications Workshop - Online, 30th July, 2021
UAI 15th Bayesian Modelling Applications Workshop (@UAI2021)

Call for Submissions
Friday, July 30th, 2021

Submission deadline: Abstract 25th May, Submissions (Extended Abstract or Paper) 28th May.

Continuing in a successful tradition, the 15th Bayesian Modeling Applications Workshop provides a forum for exchange among researchers, applications practitioners and tool developers. Submissions (papers or extended abstracts) are solicited of real-world applications of Bayesian models and computational methods. The aim of the workshop is to foster discussion on the challenges of building applications, such as: integrating Bayesian models and tools into larger hybrid applications; validating models; interacting with, and explaining outputs and decisions to, users, decision makers and stakeholders; constructing and updating models through combined knowledge elicitation and learning; and deploying and managing cloud and app-based Bayesian applications. In particular, the workshop solicits abstracts/papers describing Bayesian applications that involve topics such as (but not limited to):

The workshop is not restricted to a particular application area or discipline. Instead, the workshop encourages interdisciplinary collaboration and cross fertilization. Final workshop talks and ‘posters/demos’ (held via ‘breakout rooms’, with a 3 minute lighting talk to full workshop) will be selected with the goal of fostering discussion of critical issues within the community of practice.


The workshop will accept two types of submissions:

We encourage submission of abstracts for applications papers that have been accepted at the main UAI 2021 conference, if authors are interested in attending this workshop and having additional conversations regarding their application. A decision on whether to offer an oral or poster/demo presentation at the Workshop will depend on whether the paper has been given a UAI oral or poster presentation.

Workshop format

The format of the workshop will be a combination of oral and poster presentation, with demonstrations encouraged for both, grouped to facilitate discussion.

Publication of Proceedings

As in past years, proceedings (full papers, and abstracts) will be published online (as a CEUR Workshop Proceedings Volume), and selected papers may be invited to submit to a special issue of a journal.
