The submission site is here.

Submissions are limited to 8 pages excluding references and supplementary material using the LaTeX style file we provide below. Written supplementary material, such as detailed proofs, can be included at the end of your submission file in an appendix, so long as it is clearly labelled. You will also be able to submit supplementary material such as code or small videos as a zip file. You will be able to submit and change this zip file up to one week after the main deadline.

Formatting information (including LaTeX style files) is here. We do not support submission in preparation systems other than LaTeX. Please do not modify the layout given by the style file. If you have questions about the style file or its usage, please contact the publications chair, Nicoló Fusi.

The AISTATS review process is double-blind. Please remove all identifying information from your submission, including author names, affiliations, and any acknowledgments. Self-citations can present a special problem: we recommend leaving in a moderate number of self-citations for published or otherwise well-known work. For unpublished or less-well-known work, or for large numbers of self-citations, it is up to the author's discretion how best to preserve anonymity. Possibilities include leaving out a citation altogether, including it but replacing the citation text with “removed for anonymous submission,” or leaving the citation as-is; authors should choose for each citation the treatment which is least likely to reveal authorship.

Previous tech-report or workshop versions of a paper can similarly present a problem for anonymization. We suggest leaving out any identifying information for such versions, but bringing them to the attention of the program committee via the submission page. Reviewers will be instructed that tech reports (including reports on sites such as arXiv) and papers in workshops without archival proceedings do not count as prior publication.
