AISTATS*2012 Call for Breaking News Abstracts
Fifeteenth International Conference on
April 21-23, 2012, La Palma, Canary Islands
This is the fifeteenth conference on Artificial Intelligence and Statistics (AISTATS*2012), an interdisciplinary gathering of researchers at the intersection of computer science, artificial intelligence, statistics, and related areas.
The Conference Programme will include invited talks, peer-reviewed contributed talks and posters. These contributed talks and posters, for which the submission date is October 14th, 2011, will be published as full papers. However, in addition, as at the last European AISTATS, some time at the conference will be set aside for "breaking news" posters submitted on the basis of a one-page abstract. These posters may report on ongoing or unpublished projects, projects already published elsewhere, partially developed ideas, negative results etc., and are meant as informal fora to encourage discussion. Abstracts should summarize and highlight why the projects will be of interest to the AISTATS community. The review process of these abstracts will be very light-touch but presentation of these at the Conference will NOT lead to publication in the Proceedings.
Since its inception in 1985, the primary goal of this conference has been to broaden research at the interface between artificial intelligence and statistics. Abstracts on all aspects of this interface are strongly encouraged, including but not limited to:
Solicited topics include, but are not limited to:
- Models and estimation (graphical models, causality, Gaussian processes, approximate inference, kernel methods, nonparametric models, statistical and computational learning theory, manifolds and embedding, sparsity and compressed sensing, ...)
- Classification, regression, density estimation, unsupervised and semi-supervised learning, clustering, topic models, ...
- Structured prediction, relational learning, logic and probability
- Reinforcement learning, planning, control
- Game theory, no-regret learning, multi-agent systems
- Algorithms and architectures for high-performance computation in AI and statistics
- Software for and applications of AI and statistics
Submission Requirements for Breaking News Abstracts:
Electronic submission of one-page double-column abstracts is required. Formatting and submission information can be found on the AI and Statistics Conference page. Submissions will be considered if they are received by 23:59, Friday February 10th, 2012, Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time).
Abstracts will be lightly reviewed. Acceptance notifications will be emailed by February 24th. These will be presented as posters at the conference but will not be published.
