[Comp-neuro] AISTATS: Call for late-breaking posters, DL Jan 24

AISTATS 2014 Call for Late-breaking Posters
Seventeenth International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Statistics
April 22 - 25, 2014, Reykjavik, Iceland

Colocated with a MLSS Machine Learning Summer School

AISTATS is an interdisciplinary gathering of researchers at the intersection
of computer science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, statistics,
and related areas. Since its inception in 1985, the primary goal of AISTATS
has been to broaden research in these fields by promoting the exchange of
ideas among them.

Some time at AISTATS will be set aside for "breaking news" posters having 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 These posters may report on ongoing or unpublished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 forums to encourage
discussion. Abstracts should summarize and highlight why the projects will be
of interest to the AISTATS community. The review process of the late-breaking
posters will be very light-touch and presentation at the Conference will not
lead to publication in the Proceedings. We encourage the submission of
late-breaking posters at

In brief:
- Electronic submission of one-page abstracts is required.
- Include authors names as the reviewing is not double blind.
- Accepted submissions will be presented as posters but will not be published.
- The submission site will be open by 20 December.
- Submissions will be considered if received by 24 January, 2014, 23:59 UTC.
- Acceptance notifications will be emailed by February 11th.
- More details below and at

Keynote and Tutorial Speakers:
Keynote Speakers: Peter Buhlmann (ETH Zurich), Andrew Gelman (Columbia
University), Michael I. Jordan (University of California, Berkeley)

Tutorial Speakers: Roderick Murray-Smith (University of Glasgow), Christian
P. Robert (Ceremade - Universite Paris-Dauphine), Havard Rue (Norwegian
University of Science and Technology)

Submission Requirements for Late-breaking Posters:
Electronic submission of one-page abstracts is required. The abstracts must
fit one A4/letter page with sufficient margins and at least 10 point font
size. The authors may use the proceedings track paper format, but this is not
required. Please remember to include authors names as the reviewing is not
double blind.

Abstracts will be lightly reviewed. Acceptance notifications will be emailed
by February 11th. These will be presented as posters at the conference but
will not be published.

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
* Software for and applications of AI and statistics

The submission site will be open by 20 December. See for details of the
submission site.

Submission Deadline:
Submissions will be considered if received by 24 January, 2014, 23:59 UTC.
Acceptance notifications will be emailed by February 11th.

Colocated Events:
A Machine Learning Summer School (MLSS) will be held after the conference
(April 25th-May 4th). April 25 will be an AISTATS/MLSS joint tutorial + MLSS
poster session day. The summer school features an exciting program with talks
from leading experts in the field, see for details.

AISTATS 2014 will be held in Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, in Grand Hotel
Reykjavik. Reykjavik and its environs offer a unique mix of culture and varied
nature, from glaciers to waterfalls to geysers and thermal pools. This is a
unique opportunity to spend an afternoon break at the famous Blue Lagoon
geothermal warm beach. Travel information available at
