1. Inductive inference
1.1. Universal prediction
1.2. Teaching models related to inductive inference
2. Grammatical inference and languages
3. Inductive logic programming
4. Query Learning
4.1. Learning and complexity theory
4.2. Teaching models related to query learning
5. On-line learning and relative loss bounds
6. Semisupervised and unsupervised learning (including clustering)
7. Active learning
8. Statistical learning
8.1. Support Vector Machines
8.2. VC dimension
8.3. PAC theory
9. Bayesian and causal networks
10. Boosting and bagging
11. Information-based methods
11.1. Minimum description/message length
11.2. Kolmogorov complexity
12. Latent variable estimation
13. Kernels
14. Graph learning
15. Decision tree methods
16. Markov decision processes
17. Reinforcement learning
18. Real-world applications of algorithmic learning theory
19. Novel approaches to learning theory (not any of the above)

Invited Talks. There will be several invited talks by prominent researchers in the field.

Submission. Authors can submit their papers electronically via our submission page. Files in Postscript (PS) and Portable Document Format (PDF) are allowed.

Important Dates.

* Submission deadline: May 18, 2011
* Notification of acceptance or rejection will be emailed to the submitting author by June 30, 2011.
* The camera-ready copy of accepted papers will be due July 10, 2011.

Format. The submitted paper should be no longer than 15 pages in the standard format for Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series. The 15 page limit includes title, abstract, acknowledgements, references, illustrations and any other parts of the paper; appendixes bypassing the page limit are not allowed. Each submission must contain one or two keywords from the above list of topics describing the content.

Policy. Each submitted paper will be reviewed by the members of the program committee and be judged on clarity, significance and originality. Joint submissions to other conferences with published proceedings are not allowed. Papers that have appeared in journals or other conferences are not appropriate for ALT 2011.

Proceedings. All accepted papers will be published as a volume in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence, Springer-Verlag, and will be available at the conference. Full versions of selected papers of ALT 2011 will be invited to a special issue of the journal Theoretical Computer Science.

E.M. Gold Award. One scholarship of 555 € will be awarded to a student author of an excellent paper (please mark student submissions on the title page).
