AAMAS 2014 2014-05-05 2014-05-09 2013-10-11 2013-12-20
Paris, France

AAMAS is the leading scientific conference for research in autonomous agents and multiagent systems. The AAMAS conference series was initiated in 2002 by merging three highly respected meetings: the International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (ICMAS); the International Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages (ATAL); and the International Conference on Autonomous Agents (AA). The aim of the joint conference is to provide a single, high-profile, internationally respected archival forum for scientific research in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multiagent systems. AAMAS 2014, the thirteenth conference in the AAMAS series, seeks high-quality submissions of full papers and extended abstracts, limited to 8 pages and 2 pages in length respectively. Submissions to the special tracks listed below need to meet the same length requirements of the main track with the exception of the challenges and vision track, whose submissions are limited to 4 pages. Reviews will be double blind; authors must avoid including anything that can be used to identify them. Please note that registering the paper and its abstract is required before the submission of a full paper or an extended abstract. All work must be original, i.e., it must not have appeared in a conference proceedings, book, or journal and may not be under review at another archival conference. In addition to submissions in the main track, AAMAS 2014 will be soliciting papers in four special tracks. The review process for the special tracks will be similar to the main track, but with program committee members specially selected for that track. All accepted papers for the special tracks will be included in the proceedings.

ICML 2014 2014-06-21 2014-06-26 2014-01-31 2014-04-09
Beijing, China

The 31st International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML 2014) will be held in Beijing, China, from June 21 to 26, 2014. The conference will, tentatively, consist of one day of tutorials, followed by three days of main conference sessions, followed by two days of workshops. We invite submissions of papers on all topics related to machine learning for the conference proceedings, and proposals for tutorials and workshops. After reviewing author and reviewer feedback from the previous conference, ICML 2014 will adopt a two-cycle submission/review format, of which the first submission/review cycle will facilitate both regular one-time review/rebuttal of submissions, as well as invitation-only resubmission into the second cycle, whereas the second cycle will only allow regular first-time submission plus resubmission of papers invited from the first cycle. We are also exploring the possibility of a JMLR track at ICML that allows direct submission of papers intended for JMLR to be reviewed under the same time frame of ICML, more detail will be available soon once agreement with JMLR has been reached. Accepted papers will be announced and posted online shortly after acceptance and will be considered published and available for citation at that time.

ALA 2014 2014-05-05 2014-05-06 2014-01-31 2014-02-19
Paris, France

Adaptive and Learning Agents, particularly those in a multi-agent setting are becoming more and more prominent as the sheer size and complexity of many real world systems grows How to adaptively control, coordinate and optimize such systems is an emerging multi-disciplinary research area at the intersection of Computer Science, Control theory, Economics, and Biology. The ALA workshop will focus on agent and multi-agent systems which employ learning or adaptation. The goal of this workshop is to increase awareness and interest in adaptive agent research, encourage collaboration and give a representative overview of current research in the area of adaptive and learning agents and multi-agent systems. It aims at bringing together not only scientists from different areas of computer science but also from different fields studying similar concepts (e.g., game theory, bio-inspired control, mechanism design). This workshop will focus on all aspects of adaptive and learning agents and multi-agent systems with a particular emphasis on how to modify established learning techniques and/or create new learning paradigms to address the many challenges presented by complex real-world problems.

AAAI-14 Workshop on Sequential Decision-Making with Big Data 2014-07-27 2014-07-28 2014-04-10 2014-05-01
Quebec City, Canada

In the 21st century, we live in a world where data is abundant. We would like to use this data to make better decisions in many areas of life, such as industry, health care, business, and government. This opportunity has encouraged many machine learning and data mining researchers to develop tools to benefit from big data. However, the methods developed so far have focused almost exclusively on the task of prediction. As a result, the question of how big data can leverage decision-making has remained largely untouched. This workshop is about decision-making in the era of big data. The main topic will be the complex decision-making problems, in particular the sequential ones, that arise in this context. Examples of these problems are high-dimensional large-scale reinforcement learning and their simplified version such as various types of bandit problems. These problems can be classified into three potentially overlapping categories:
RoboCup Symposium 2014 2014-07-25 2014-07-25 2014-04-11 2014-05-23
João Pessoa, Brazil

The 18th annual RoboCup International Symposium will be held in conjunction with RoboCup 2014 (July 19-24). The Symposium represents the core meeting for presentation and discussion of scientific contributions to a variety of research areas related to all RoboCup divisions (RoboCupSoccer, RoboCupRescue, RoboCup at Home, RoboCup at Work and RoboCupJunior). Its scope encompasses, but is not restricted to, research and educational activities within the fields of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. Due to its interdisciplinary nature, the symposium offers a unique venue for exploring various and intimate connections of theory and practice across a wide spectrum of research fields. The experimental, interactive, and benchmark character of the RoboCup initiative presents the opportunity to disseminate novel ideas and promising technologies, which are rapidly adopted and field-tested by a large (and still growing) community.
2014 Annual International Conference on Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures (BICA 2014) 2014-11-07 2014-11-09 2014-05-09 2014-06-07
Cambridge, USA

Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures (BICA) are computational frameworks for building intelligent agents that are inspired from biological intelligence. Biological intelligent systems, notably animals such as humans, have many qualities that are often lacking in artificially designed systems including robustness, flexibility and adaptability to environments. At a point in time where visibility into naturally intelligent systems is exploding, thanks to modern brain imaging and recording techniques allowing us to map brain structures and functions, our ability to learn lessons from nature and to build biologically inspired intelligent systems has never been greater. At the same time, the growth in computer science and technology has unleashed enough computational power at sufficiently low prices, that an explosion of intelligent applications from driverless vehicles, to augmented reality, to ubiquitous robots, is now almost certain. The growth in these fields challenges the computational replication of all essential aspects of the human mind (the BICA Challenge), an endeavor which is interdisciplinary in nature and promises to yield bi-directional flow of understanding between all involved disciplines. With the scope of BICA 2014 covering all areas of BICA-related research listed below, the major thrusts will be Perception, Attention, and Language.
IEEE ADPRL 2014 2014-12-09 2014-12-12 2014-06-15 2014-09-05
Orlando, USA

The goal of the IEEE Symposium on ADPRL is to provide an outlet and a forum for interaction between researchers and practitioners in ADP and RL, in which the clear parallels between the two fields are brought together and exploited. We equally welcome contributions from control theory, computer science, operations research, computational intelligence, neuroscience, as well as other novel perspectives on ADPRL. Original papers are sought on methods, analysis, applications, and overviews of ADPRL. We are interested in applications from engineering, artificial intelligence, economics, medicine, and other relevant fields.
