Call For Papers

The 9th European Workshop on Reinforcement Learning (EWRL-9)
co-located with ECML PKDD 2011.

Proceedings of this workshop will be published by
Springer in the prestigious LNAI (LNCS) series.

The 9th European workshop on reinforcement learning (EWRL-9)
invites reinforcement learning researchers to participate in
the revival of this world class event. We plan to make this an
exciting event for researchers worldwide, not only for the
presentation of top quality papers, but also as a forum for
ample discussion of open problems and future research
directions. Reinforcement learning is an active field of
research which deals with the problem of sequential decision
making in unknown (and often) stochastic and/or partially
observable environments. Recently there has been a wealth of
both impressive empirical results, as well as significant
theoretical advances. Both types of advances are of significant
importance and we would like to create a forum to discuss such
interesting results.

We are calling for papers from the entire reinforcement
learning spectrum, with the option of either 3 page position
papers (on which open discussion will be held) or longer 12
page LNAI format research papers. We encourage a range of
submissions to encourage broad discussion. Accepted papers will
be published in the prestigious Springer LNAI proceedings.
There will also be a best paper award.

We encourage submissions from a range of sub-topics including
(but not limited to):
* Exploration/Exploitation
* Function approximation in RL
* Theoretical aspects of RL
* Policy search methods
* Empirical evaluations in RL
* Kernel methods for RL
* Partial observable RL
* Bayesian RL

Keynote Speakers:
* Peter Auer - University of Leoben – Leoben, Austria
* Kristian Kersting - Fraunhofer IAIS, University of Bonn - Sankt Augustin, Germany
* Peter Stone (Tentative) - University Of Texas – Austin, USA
* Csaba Szepesvari - University Of Alberta – Alberta, Canada

Submission deadline: June 10, 2011
Page limit: 3 pages for position papers and 12 pages for regular papers.
Paper format: LNAI Springer:
