Co-organised by: Royal Holloway, University of London, UK and Karolinska Institutet, Sweden

Proceedings Information

All accepted papers will be presented at the conference and published by the Proceedings of Machine Learning Research (PMLR). The conference proceedings can now be found online at PMLR (volume 60).

Instructions for the Authors of Accepted Papers

Please make sure to use the correct style file; it should be already installed on your computer, or will be installed "on the fly". The camera-ready papers should follow the style of the Proceedings section of JMLR rather than JMLR itself.

In the end you should submit two files: (1) file containing your paper in the pdf format; (2) copyright form.

The beginning of your file will look like:

  \jmlrworkshop{Conformal and Probabilistic Prediction and Applications}
  \jmlrproceedings{PMLR}{Proceedings of Machine Learning Research}

  \title{Nonparametric predictive distributions based on conformal prediction}
  \author{\Name{John Smith}\Email{}\\
    \addr{Royal Holloway, University of London, Egham, Surrey, UK}\\
    \Name{Minge Shen}\Email{}\\
    \addr{Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, USA}}
  \editor{Alex Gammerman, Vladimir Vovk, Zhiyuan Luo, and Harris Papadopoulos}

    This paper applies conformal prediction to derive predictive distributions
    that are valid under a nonparametric assumption.

    Conformal prediction, predictive distributions, regression.

Notice the presence of the command

  \jmlrproceedings{PMLR}{Proceedings of Machine Learning Research}

It has become necessary after the recent rebranding of JMLR W&CP as the Proceedings of Machine Learning Research (PMLR).

Please let us know if you encounter any problems following these instructions.

For further information (which, however, can be confusing), see (under the heading "What is the Style File for the Proceedings?"); COPA 2017 uses the one column style file. The style file is available from the CTAN (Comprehensive TeX Archive Network) web site at you can go inside the directory called "sample_papers" and emulate the files jmlr_sample.tex and jmlr_sample.bib (the latter is only needed if you use bibtex).

A lot of useful advice on the JMLR style can be found at (however, please make sure to use the Proceedings style, as described above, rather than the main journal style).
