 +If one wants to submit a more extensive paper to the workshop track, the 6-9 page guideline for conference papers should be followed.
  
 We strongly recommend that researchers in computer vision who wish to make workshop submissions adhere closely to the recommended paper length to avoid issues with [[http://​www.pamitc.org/​cvpr15/​author_guidelines.php|CVPR'​s policy on dual submissions]]. We strongly recommend that researchers in computer vision who wish to make workshop submissions adhere closely to the recommended paper length to avoid issues with [[http://​www.pamitc.org/​cvpr15/​author_guidelines.php|CVPR'​s policy on dual submissions]].

 +When you make your arXiv submission, please be sure to correctly classify your submission into CoRR categories. ​ Typically, you should consider the following categories:​ 
 +  * CS.LG: machine learning 
 +  * CS.NE: neural networks 
 +  * CS.CV: computer vision 
 +  * CS.CL: computational linguistics 
 +Virtually all of the ICLR papers should have both CS.LG and CS.NE as categories and then additional categories depending on the nature of the problem.

-  - Regarding the conference submission'​s 6-9 page limits, these are really meant as guidelines and will not be strictly enforced. For example, figures should not be shrunk to illegible size to fit within the page limit. However, in order to ensure a reasonable workload for our reviewers, papers that go beyond the 9 pages should be formatted to include a 9 page submission and a separate supplementary material submission that will be optionally reviewed. If the paper is selected for the JMLR special topic issue, this supplementary material can be incorporated into the final journal version. +  - Regarding the conference submission'​s 6-9 page limits, these are really meant as guidelines and will not be strictly enforced.

   - Paper revisions will be permitted, and in fact are encouraged, in response to comments from and discussions with the reviewers (see [[iclr2015:​cfp#​an_open_reviewing_paradigm|An Open Reviewing Paradigm]] below).   - Paper revisions will be permitted, and in fact are encouraged, in response to comments from and discussions with the reviewers (see [[iclr2015:​cfp#​an_open_reviewing_paradigm|An Open Reviewing Paradigm]] below).

At submission time, simply provide the title, authors, abstract, and temporary arXiv number indicating that the paper has been submitted to arXiv.+  - Authors are encouraged to post their papers to arXiv early enough that the paper has an arXiv number and URL by the submission deadline of 11:59 pm PST, 19 Dec. 2014.  However, if these are not yet available, authors have up to one week after the submission deadline to provide the arXiv number and URL.
