Instructions for Camera-Ready Paper

Please take some time to read these instructions in full. For your camera-ready paper to be included in the proceedings, it is essential that you follow the instructions contained on this page.


The deadline for the camera-ready submission is Wednesday, February 23rd, 2022, 11:59am UTC. This is a strict deadline, so please be aware of the time zone and take into account that it is AM and not PM. You may find it useful to use an online time converter like this one.

No extensions to the deadline will be granted in any cases. If you miss the deadline, your paper will not be included in the proceedings. We strongly recommend submitting your camera-ready version well in advance of this deadline.

Submission instructions

You have to upload one PDF file (mandatory), one PDF filled and signed copyright form (mandatory), and one ZIP file containing the non-textual supplementary material (optional).

1) PDF file (mandatory). The PDF file must contain the paper, including the references and acknowledgements, and optionally the textual supplementary material. Differently from the initial submission, now the textual supplementary material (“the appendix”) must follow the paper content (after Acknowledgements and References) in the same PDF file. You will also have to obtain a submission code from the paper style checker by uploading this PDF file to https://research.engineering.wustl.edu/machinelearning/pub/AISTATS2022 (see Submission to CMT for details).

The PDF file should be named 642.pdf, with 642 replaced with your submission ID on CMT.

To prepare your camera-ready PDF paper, please check the following formatting instructions:

  1. Please use the UPDATED LaTeX style file available at: http://aistats.org/aistats2022/AISTATS2022CameraReadyPaperPack.zip.
  2. Use the NEW sample_paper.tex file as the starting file for your submission, as it contains some important changes.
  3. Camera-ready submissions are limited to 9 pages, excluding acknowledgements, references, and (optionally) textual supplementary material. Please use the additional 9th page to address the reviewers’ and meta-reviewer’s feedback, which we request you to take into account.
  4. The main paper and the textual supplementary material (“Appendix”), if any, must now be submitted as a single PDF instead of two separate files.
  5. Do not change the style file, including spacing. If you have questions about the style file or its usage, please contact the Publications Chair.
  6. Your paper must use US letter format (default in the style file). Do not change this to A4 paper format.
  7. You must use the default LaTeX font; please don’t change it. For example, do NOT include the line \usepackage{times} used in other conferences (e.g., ICML, NeurIPS, or ICLR). In addition, please avoid using Type 3 fonts anywhere in your document, including in embedded images. See https://www.ics.uci.edu/~chenli/pdf-font-types/index.html for more information.
  8. Please use ALL CAPS section headings, as detailed in the latex templates.
  9. Citations must be in the “(Author, Year)” format, e.g., (Cheesman, 1985). To achieve that, you may use the natbib latex package (or any other similar one that achieves the same purpose). Be sure that the sentence reads correctly if the citation is deleted; e.g., instead of “As described by (Cheesman, 1985), we first frobulate the widgets,” write “As described by Cheesman (1985), we first frobulate the widgets.”
  10. The paper must be de-anonymized, i.e., the author names and institutions should be visible. For that, please make sure to use \usepackage[accepted]{aistats2022} when loading the style file.
  11. The acknowledgements section should be titled “Acknowledgments”. Acknowledgements are optional, but if your paper contains this section, it must appear before the References.
  12. The reference section should be titled “References”. The references listed at the end of the paper can follow any style as long as it is used consistently.
  13. Please consider the following colorblind-friendly guidelines for introducing color in your figures and plots: https://usabilla.com/blog/how-to-design-for-color-blindness.
  14. Further formatting instructions can be found in the sample_paper.pdf file available at http://aistats.org/aistats2022/AISTATS2022CameraReadyPaperPack.zip.

2) Copyright form (mandatory). Please download the PMLR copyright form, available at http://proceedings.mlr.press/pmlr-license-agreement.pdf, fill it in, sign it, rename it as 642-Permission.pdf (with 642 replaced by your submission ID on CMT), and submit it with the rest of the documents. It is sufficient for one author to sign the agreement on behalf of all authors.

3) Non-textual supplementary material (optional). The ZIP file may contain any non-textual supplementary material, such as code for the paper.

How to avoid the most common formatting violations

Submission to CMT

Camera-ready submissions must be submitted via CMT: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/AISTATS2022. If you are also a reviewer or Area Chair, make sure that your role is set to “Author”. To change your role to “Author,” click next to “Select Your Role” in the top right of the page.

In the CMT Author Console there is now a new link to “Create camera-ready submission” for each accepted paper. Use this link to submit camera-ready papers. The CMT form will ask you for the title, the abstract, the list of authors (only changes to the author order are allowed at this point, as per the submission agreement), and the following files (where 642 is to be replaced by your submission ID): 642.pdf, 642-Permission.pdf, and 642-supp.zip (optional).

Please ensure that the submitted title and abstract match the ones in the camera-ready version, and do not include any LaTeX commands or other non-human-readable markup.

The final version will appear in the PMLR proceedings, published by JMLR W&CP. The CMT will ask you to agree to have your work published by JMLR according to the agreement outlined here.

You will also be asked to provide a submission code obtained by an automated style checker. To obtain the code, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to https://research.engineering.wustl.edu/machinelearning/pub/AISTATS2022
  2. Provide the paper ID (from CMT), your name (just one author), your e-mail and the submission PDF file. If the paper passes the style checks, you will obtain a submission code. (Please ignore the warnings of the style checker.) The submission code is only valid for this particular PDF file. If you further edit the PDF, you will need to obtain another submission code.
  3. When submitting your paper on CMT, you need to provide the style checker submission code.

You may continue to edit your camera-ready submissions until the camera-ready deadline.

We thank Roman Garnett for kindly helping the AISTATS Chairs to set up and host the paper style checker.

Instructions for Posters

deadline: March 14th, 2022 AoE

To see the full instructions, visit the wiki.

Your paper will be presented in a virtual format on GatherTown and on the live virtual site. You should prepare two graphics for your paper by March 14th AoE (anywhere on Earth):

The Poster Upload page has an option, Scale images to fit, which will scale your upload so that it fits within the limits (exceptionally large images cannot be scaled). Using this option will allow images that are larger to be uploaded and rescaled as they are uploaded.

Use a solid background for your posters and thumbnails as opposed to transparent. This works better in the virtual poster spaces.

To submit your poster, follow the submission link. If you don’t see your paper listed on the page, try logging in using the same email address that you used on CMT.

Instructions for Recorded Presentations

deadline: March 14th, 2022 AoE

You will also pre-record a video presentation.

Papers accepted as Oral will record a 12-minute video and papers accepted as Poster will record a 5-minutes video. SlidesLive will be sending you an email directly from slideslive.com with further instructions on how to record and upload your video. Please whitelist slideslive.com in your spam filter and coordinate with your co-authors on recording and uploading your video. The deadline for uploading this video is March 14th AoE (anywhere on Earth).
