We invite high quality submissions for presentation as talks or posters during the workshop. We are especially interested in participants who can contribute in the following areas:

  • Non-Convex Optimization example problems in ML include
    • Problems with sparsity constraints
    • Sparse PCA
    • Non-negative matrix and tensor approximation
    • Non-convex quadratic programming
  • Combinatorial and Discrete Optimization example problems in ML include
    • Estimating MAP solutions to discrete random fields
    • Clustering and graph-partitioning
    • Semi-supervised and multiple-instance learning
    • Feature and subspace selection
  • Stochastic, Parallel and Online Optimization example problems in ML include
    • Massive data sets
    • Distributed learning algorithms
  • Algorithms and Techniques especially with a focus on an underlying application
    • Polyhedral combinatorics, polytopes and strong valid inequalities
    • Linear and higher-order relaxations
    • Semidefinite programming relaxations
    • Decomposition for large-scale, message-passing and online learning
    • Global and Lipschitz optimization
    • Algorithms for non-smooth optimization
