Call For Papers

Whether selecting training data, finding an optimal experimental design, exploring in reinforcement learning, or designing recommender systems, selecting a high-quality but diverse set of items is a core challenge for ML.

Any task that requires selecting multiple, non-similar items leverages the concept of negative dependence. Negatively-dependent measures and submodularity are powerful, theoretically-grounded tools that can aid in this selection.

Determinantal point processes are arguably the most popular negatively-dependent measure, with past applications including recommender systems, neural network pruning, ensemble learning, summarization, and kernel reconstruction. However, the spectrum of negatively-dependent measures is much broader.

This workshop will discuss with the ICML audience the rich mathematical tools associated with negative dependence, delving into the key theoretical concepts that underlie negatively-dependent measures and investigating fundamental applications.

SUBMISSIONS
We invite submissions of papers on any topic related to negative dependence in machine learning, including (but not limited to):
