Call For Papers

The 25th International Conference on Algorithmic Learning Theory (ALT 2014) will be held in Bled, Slovenia, during October 8–10, 2014. The conference is on the theoretical foundations of machine learning. The conference will be co-located with the 17th International Conference on Discovery Science (DS 2014).

Topics of Interest: We invite submissions with theoretical and algorithmic contributions to new or already existing learning problems including but are not limited to:

Comparison of the strength of learning models and the design and evaluation of novel algorithms for learning problems in established learning-theoretic settings such as
Statistical learning theory,
On-line learning,
Inductive inference,
Query models,
Unsupervised or semi-supervised learning, clustering, and active learning.
Stochastic optimization
High dimensional and non-parametric inference
Exploration-Exploitation tradeoff, bandit theory
Reinforcement learning, planning
Analysis of the theoretical properties of existing algorithms:
families of algorithms could include
Boosting,
Kernel-based methods, SVM,
Bayesian networks,
Graph- and/or manifold-based methods,
methods for latent-variable estimation and/or clustering,
MDL,
decision tree methods,
information-based methods,
analyses could include generalization, speed of convergence,computational complexity, sample complexity.
Definition and analysis of new learning models. Models might
identify and formalize classes of learning problems inadequately addressed by existing theory or
capture salient properties of important concrete applications.

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.

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 or are under review for journals or other conferences are not appropriate for ALT 2014.

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 2014 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).

Important Dates.
Full paper submission: May 9, 2014
Author notification: June 13, 2014
Camera-ready papers due: July 9, 2014
Conference: October 8–10, 2014

Submission. Authors can submit their papers electronically via our submission page (which will be opened in April 2014).
