The 31st Annual Conference on Learning Theory (COLT 2018) will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, on July 5-9, 2018 (with a welcome reception on the 4th), immediately before ICML 2018, which takes place in the same city. We invite submissions of papers addressing theoretical aspects of machine learning and related topics


  • Design and analysis of learning algorithms
  • Statistical and computational complexity of learning
  • Optimization methods for learning
  • Unsupervised, semi-supervised, online and active learning
  • Interactions with other mathematical fields
  • Interactions with statistical physics
  • Artificial neural networks, including deep learning
  • High-dimensional and non-parametric statistics
  • Learning with algebraic or combinatorial structure
  • Geometric and topological data analysis
  • Bayesian methods in learning
  • Planning and control, including reinforcement learning
  • Learning with system constraints: e.g. privacy, memory or communication budget
  • Learning from complex data: e.g., networks, time series, etc.
  • Learning in other settings: e.g. social, economic, and game-theoretic
