About

Conference on Theoretical Foundations of Machine Learning (TFML 2015) will take place in Będlewo, Poland, on February 16-21, 2015. We invite submissions of papers addressing theoretical aspects of machine learning and related topics. We strongly support a broad definition of learning theory, including, but not limited to:
  • Theoretical foundations of
    • supervised learning
    • unsupervised learning
    • semi-supervised learning
    • deep learning
    • active learning
    • concept drift
    • natural language processing
    • neuroinformatics
  • generalization bounds
  • optimization methods
  • computational complexity of learning
  • information theoretic learning

Conference is organized by Department of Machine Learning, Institute of Computer Science and Computational Mathematics, Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, Jagiellonian University

Invited Speakers

Publication model

  • The journal track. Original, unpublished research papers can be submitted to this track through easychair system. They will be peer reviewed and after acceptance and presentation during the TFML conference published in Schedae Informaticae Journal.
  • The latebreaking talks track, which is aimed at researchers willing to present their latest work during TFML, but without publishing it in journal/proceedings. This works will still undergo peer review and have to be uploaded to arXiv and registered in the easychair system.

FAQ

  1. What is the difference between Journal track and latebreaking track?
    The only difference between those two tracks is a publication model, in each case you submit and present your work at the conference. However, in the journal track your work gets published in Schedae Informaticae Journal, while in latebreaking track you only upload your work to arXiv repository. Both tracks are peer reviewed.
  2. Why would I choose latebreaking track instead of Journal one?
    There are two main reasons, first, latebreaking track undergo lighter review process than the journal track, as we also welcome "in progress studies" and similar ones in latebreaking track. Furthermore, ones work might be already under review in some other journal (or even is already accepted) and so it is not possible to publish it twice. Such results would still qualify as a good talk at TFML, while not a good journal track submission.
  3. How to submit my work to latebreaking track?
    If you have not done it yet, upload your paper to arXiv repository. Once it is done, click on the "register paper" link in the right column and complete the paper submission form with the .pdf file from your arXiv submission. Remember to add [arXiv] tag to your manuscript title.

Journal track

Submission format

Papers should be prepared in English, according to the Schedae Informaticae template (LaTeX template). Page limit (including references, and other additional materials) is 8 pages (soft limit) and a hard limit of 10 pages. Papers longer than 10 pages will be rejected without reviewing.

Submit your paper

EasyChair submission system is now closed. check your paper status

Publication

All papers will be peer-reviewed. All accepted papers will be published in Schedae Informaticae Journal1. At least one author of each publication has to attend the conference and present it during oral/poster session.

1For Polish scientists, this journal is located on the B list of the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, with 10pts.

Latebreaking talks track

If you are not interested in publication you can still submit your talk for TFML and present your work during our conference.

Submission format

Papers should be uploaded to arXiv.

Submit your paper

submit your paper to latebreaking track and register your talk through EasyChair - simply upload arxiv's pdf file through our system and add [arXiV] tag to yours submission's title check your paper status
