Call For Papers

We invite high quality submissions for presentation as talks or posters during the workshop. We are especially interested in participants who can contribute in the following areas:

* Non-Convex Optimization
example problems in ML include
o Problems with sparsity constraints
o Sparse PCA
o Non-negative matrix and tensor approximation
o Non-convex quadratic programming
* Combinatorial and Discrete Optimization
example problems in ML include
o Estimating MAP solutions to discrete random fields
o Clustering and graph-partitioning
o Semi-supervised and multiple-instance learning
o Feature and subspace selection
* Stochastic, Parallel and Online Optimization
example problems in ML include
o Massive data sets
o Distributed learning algorithms
* Algorithms and Techniques
especially with a focus on an underlying application
o Polyhedral combinatorics, polytopes and strong valid inequalities
o Linear and higher-order relaxations
o Semidefinite programming relaxations
o Decomposition for large-scale, message-passing and online learning
o Global and Lipschitz optimization
o Algorithms for non-smooth optimization
o Approximation Algorithms

The above list is not exhaustive, and we welcome submissions on highly related topics too.

* Deadline for submission of papers: 17th October 2008
* Notification of acceptance: 7th November 2008
