AI & Statistics 2005



Extended Deadline for Paper Submissions: September 28, 2004 



Tenth International Workshop on
Artificial Intelligence and Statistics

January 6-8, 2005, The Savannah Hotel, Barbados

This is the tenth workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Statistics, an interdisciplinary gathering of researchers at the intersection of computer science, statistics, and related areas. Since its inception in 1985, the primary goal of this workshop has been to broaden research in both of these fields by promoting the exchange of ideas between them. We encourage the submission of all papers which are in keeping with this objective.

Presentations will include invited talks, contributed talks, and posters. Papers for poster sessions will be treated equally with papers for oral presentation in publications.

Papers on all aspects of the interface between AI & Statistics are strongly encouraged, including but not limited to:

Active learning and experimental design
Approximate Inference
Automated data analysis
Bayesian networks
Bayesian statistics
Causal modelling
Density Estimation
Error correcting codes
Information retrieval
Game theory
Cluster analysis and unsupervised learning
Graphical models
Integrated man-machine modeling methods
Interpretability in modelling
Kernel methods
Knowledge discovery in databases
Machine learning
Metadata and the design of statistical data bases
Model uncertainty, multiple models
Online learning
Pattern recognition
Prediction: classification and regression
Probabilistic neural networks
Probability and search
Semi-supervised learning
Vision, robotics, natural language processing, speech recognition
Visualization of very large datasets

Submission Requirements:

Electronic submission of papers is required. The papers (up to 8 pages in length) should be submitted through the AI and Statistics Conference Management page.

Submissions will be considered if they are received by 11:59 PM September 28, 2004, Pacific Daylight Time. Receipt of all submissions will be confirmed via electronic mail. Acceptance notices will be emailed by November 2, 2004.

Final papers (up to 8 pages, double column) must be received by
November 24, 2004. These papers will be made available on the web, and distributed at the workshop on a CD-ROM.
