The ALT 2019 conference is dedicated to all theoretical and algorithmic aspects of machine learning. We invite submissions with contributions to new or existing learning problems including, but not limited to:
- Design and analysis of learning algorithms.
- Statistical and computational learning theory.
- Online learning algorithms and theory.
- Optimization methods for learning.
- Unsupervised, semi-supervised, online and active learning.
- Connections of learning with other mathematical fields.
- Artificial neural networks, including deep learning.
- High-dimensional and non-parametric statistics.
- Learning with algebraic or combinatorial structure.
- Bayesian methods in learning.
- Planning and control, including reinforcement learning.
- Learning with system constraints: e.g. privacy, memory or communication budget.
- Learning from complex data: e.g., networks, time series, etc.
- Interactions with statistical physics.
- Learning in other settings: e.g. social, economic, and game-theoretic.
We are also interested in papers that include viewpoints that are new to the ALT community. We welcome experimental and algorithmic papers provided they are relevant to the focus of the conference by elucidating theoretical results, or by pointing out an interesting and not well understood behavior that could stimulate theoretical analysis.
Paper submission deadline : Friday, September 28, 2018, 4:59PM EST.
Authors can submit their papers electronically via the submission page which will be opened a few weeks before the conference submission deadline.
ALT 2019 will have both a best student paper award (E.M. Gold Award) and a best paper award. Authors must indicate at submission time if they wish their paper to be eligible for a student award. This does not preclude the paper to be eligible for the best paper award. The paper can be co-authored by other researchers.
We also invite proposals for a tutorial presentation. These should be dealing with a learning theory topic covered within two hours. Proposals are limited to 2 pages and should include a one page abstract as well as links to any relevant material such as existing slides or other teaching material.
Tutorials Submission Deadline : October 19, 2018.
The conference will be held in Chicago, IL, USA from March 22-24, 2019.
All questions about submissions should be emailed to the PC chairs at alt2019pc at gmail dot com.
