PGM2012 Call for participation
The sixth European Workshop on Probabilistic Graphical Models
Call For Participation
September 19-21, 2012
The European Workshop on Probabilistic Graphical Models (PGM) is a
biennial workshop that aims to bring together people interested in
probabilistic graphical models and provides a forum for discussion of
the latest research developments in this field. The first PGM workshop
was first held in Cuenca, Spain, in 2002, followed by workshops in
Leiden (2004), Prague (2006), Hirtshals (2008) and Helsinki (2010). The
fifth PGM workshop will be held in Helsinki, Finland, September 13-15, 2010.
The sixth PGM workshop will be held in Granada, Spain, September
19-21, 2012. Granada is located at the south of Spain near the coast and
Sierra Nevada mountains. Granada is the city of the Alhambra.

The workshop is organized by members of the department of Computer
Science and Artificial Intelligence
of the University of Granada, Spain.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together people interested in
probabilistic graphical models
and provide a forum for discussion of the latest research developments
in this field. The workshop
is organized so as to facilitate discussions and collaboration among the
participants also outside
the workshop sessions. To facilitate the spreading of research results
and promote interactions
among the participants, parallel sessions will be avoided and the
workshop will be organized
around a single thread of plenary and posters sessions.
We welcome theoretical and applied contributions related to the
- Principles of Bayesian (belief) networks, chain graphs, decision
networks, influence diagrams,
and other probabilistic graphical models (PGMs).
- Information processing in PGMs (exact and approximate inference).
- Learning and data mining in the context of PGMs: machine learning
approaches, statistical testing
and search methods, MCMC simulation.
- Exploitation of results from related disciplines for the construction
of PGMs, e.g., statistics, information
theory, optimization, decision making under uncertainty, multivariate
- Software systems based on PGMs.
- Application of PGMs to real-world problems.
