call for papers

We invite researchers in machine learning and statistics to submit their latest work to the NeurIPS 2022 workshop on score-based methods.


We encourage submissions that relate (but not limited) to the following topics:

  • Foundations and methodologies of score-based methods
    • generative modeling (score-based generative models, diffusion models, etc.)
    • differential equations
    • probabilistic inference, e.g. MCMC, variational inference
    • optimal transport
    • gradient estimation, control variates
    • Stein’s method
  • Applications of score-based methods
    • generation of images, video, audio, molecules, etc
    • scientific & engineering applications
    • solving inverse problems, e.g. denoising, super-resolution, etc.
    • dynamical systems
    • hypothesis testing
    • causal discovery & inference

key dates

  • Submission deadline: Sept 26, 2022 (11:59 pm AOE)
  • Acceptance notification: Oct 20, 2022
  • Camera ready for accepted submissions: Nov 25, 2022

submission details

We invite researchers to submit their recent work on the development, analysis, or application of score-based methods. A submission should take the form of a short paper of 4 pages in PDF format using the template. Additional pages containing references and appendices are allowed. For questions and troubleshooting of the template, visit CTAN.

The review process will be double-blind. Author names need to be anonymized and references/appendices may extend as far as needed beyond the 4-page upper limit. Submissions may include a supplement/appendix, but reviewers are not responsible for reading any supplementary material.

All accepted submissions will be accompanied by a poster presentation. A number of selected papers will also be invited for a contributed oral presentation.

Dual submission policy: If a paper has previously appeared in a journal, workshop, or conference (including the NeurIPS 2022 conference), it should be extended in order to be accepted at our workshop. If a paper is currently under review (e.g. in AISTATS 2023 or ICLR 2023), it can still be submitted to this workshop.

The submission website is on OpenReview. Camera-ready versions are due by Nov 25, 2022, and will be posted on the workshop website.

camera ready instructions

Please replace \usepackage{score_workshop} in the preamble of your LaTeX source file with \usepackage[final]{score_workshop}. We highly suggest incorporating reviewer feedback when revising your paper. The camera ready submission should have a total of 4 pages. Additional pages that contain only acknowledgements, references, and appendices are allowed. Please submit the camera ready paper on OpenReview via post-decision revision.

For on-site poster presentation, please prepare one poster for each accepted submission. Since posters will be taped to the wall, they should be on light-weight paper, not laminated. Please make your posters 24W x 36H inches (NOT 36W x 48H), portrait. We unfortunately cannot support virtual poster presentations nor hybrid presentations.
