Submission instructions

Papers must be in the NIPS 2011 format, but with a maximum of 4 pages (excluding references). Papers may or may not be anonymized (i.e., you could uncomment or add \nipsfinalcopy in your .tex file prior to submitting). Accepted papers will be made available on the workshop website. However, they are not archival publications and no formal workshop proceedings will be made available, meaning contributors are free to publish their work in archival journals or conferences. Paper submissions should be emailed to with a subject line of "NIPS-BayesOpt 2011: XXX" where "XXX" is the title of the submission.

The call for papers (plain text) is available here.
