Call For Papers

The 24rd Annual Conference on Learning Theory (COLT 2011) will take
place in Budapest, Hungary, on July 9-11, 2011. It will be co-located
with the Foundations of Computational Mathematics conference (FOCM
2011, Budapest, July 4th - 14th, 2011).

We invite submissions of papers addressing theoretical aspects of
machine learning and empirical inference. We strongly support a broad
definition of learning theory, including:

* Analysis of learning algorithms and their generalization ability
* Computational complexity of learning
* Bayesian analysis
* Statistical mechanics of learning systems
* Optimization procedures for learning
* Kernel methods
* Boolean function learning
* Unsupervised and semi-supervised learning and clustering
* On-line learning and relative loss bounds
* Planning and control, including reinforcement learning
* Learning in social, economic, and game-theoretic settings
* Analysis of learning in related fields: natural language processing,
neuroscience, bioinformatics, privacy and security, machine vision,
data mining, information retrieval

We are also interested in papers that include viewpoints that are new
to the COLT community. We welcome experimental and algorithmic papers
provided they are relevant to the focus of the conference by
elucidating theoretical results. Also, while the primary focus of the
conference is theoretical, papers can be strengthened by the inclusion
of relevant experimental results.

Papers that have previously appeared in journals or at other
conferences, or that are being submitted to other conferences, are not
appropriate for COLT. Papers that include work that has already been
submitted for journal publication may be submitted to COLT, as long as
the papers have not been accepted for publication by the COLT
submission deadline (conditionally or otherwise) and that the paper is
not expected to be published before the COLT conference (June 2010).
Papers will be published electronically without printed proceedings.

Paper awards:

COLT will award both the best paper and best student paper. Best
student papers must be authored or coauthored by a student. 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.
Open Problems Session:

We also invite submission of open problems (see separate call). These
should be constrained to two pages. There is a shorter reviewing
period for the open problems. Accepted contributions will be allocated
short presentation slots in a special open problems session and will
be allowed two pages each in the proceedings.

Submission Instructions:
Formatting and submission instructions will be available at the
conference website.

Important Dates:
Paper submission deadline: February 11, 2011
Author notification: May 2, 2011
Conference: Jul 9 - 11, 2011

Program Chairs:
Sham Kakade and Ulrike von Luxburg
