CALL FOR PAPERS: Algorithmic Learning Theory, 8-10 Oct 2014 Bled, SLOVENIA

ALT 2014

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 

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, 
Active learning, Stochastic optimization, High dimensional and non-parametric 
inference, Exploration-Exploitation Trade-offs, Bandit theory, Reinforcement 
learning, Planning.

* Analysis of the theoretical properties of existing algorithms such as: 
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.

* 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 euros will be awarded to a student 
author of an excellent paper (please mark student submissions on the title 

Important Dates.
Full paper submission:   May  9, 2014
Author notification:     Jun 13, 2014
Camera-ready papers due: Jul  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).
