The 9th International Conference on Probabilistic Graphical Models


September 11-14, 2018, Prague.

The International Conference on Probabilistic Graphical Models (PGM) is a biennial meeting that brings together researchers interested in all aspects of graphical models for probabilistic reasoning, decision making, and learning.

PGM 2018 is the ninth edition of the meeting. Previous meetings in the series were held in:


The 2018 edition will be held in Prague (Czech Republic) from September 11 to September 14. The program chair is Milan Studený. The conference is organized by the Institute of Information Theory and Automation of Czech Academy of Sciences. Feel free to send us an email to for further information.

Call for papers

The conference offers a forum to present latest developments in probabilistic graphical models (PGMs). Both theoretical and applied contributions related to the following topics are welcome:

  • Bayesian (belief) networks, Markov random fields, chain graphs, decision networks, influence diagrams and other PGMs.
  • Theoretical foundations of PGMs (conditional independence, causal models, hidden variables).
  • Information processing in PGMs (exact and approximate inference, sensitivity analysis).
  • Learning and data mining with PGMs.
  • Statistical methodology (multivariate modeling, Bayesian model selection, MCMC simulations).
  • Links between PGMs and other disciplines like information theory, optimization, imprecise probabilities and decision making under uncertainty.
  • Computational aspects in learning and inference.
  • Applications of PGMs to real-world problems (e.g. genomics).
