7th Annual Machine Learning Symposium

A reminder that the New York Academy of Sciences will be hosting the 7th Annual Machine Learning Symposium tomorrow from 9:30am.

The main program will feature invited talks from Peter BartlettWilliam Freeman, and Vladimir Vapnik, along with numerous spotlight talks and a poster session. Following the main program, hackNY and Microsoft Research are sponsoring a networking hour with talks from machine learning practitioners at NYC startups (specifically bit.ly, Buzzfeed, Chartbeat, and Sense Networks, Visual Revenue). This should be of great interest to everyone considering working in machine learning.

NYAS ML 2012 and ICML 2013

The New York Machine Learning Symposium is October 19 with a 2 page abstract deadline due September 13 via email with subject “Machine Learning Poster Submission” sent to physicalscience@nyas.org. Everyone is welcome to submit. Last year’s attendance was 246 and I expect more this year.

The primary experiment for ICML 2013 is multiple paper submission deadlines with rolling review cycles. The key dates are October 1, December 15, and February 15. This is an attempt to shift ICML further towards a journal style review process and reduce peak load. The “not for proceedings” experiment from this year’s ICML is not continuing.

Edit: Fixed second ICML deadline.
