Final CfP: NIPS 09 Workshop on Adaptive Sensing, Active Learning and Experimental Design


                  NIPS workshop on
 Adaptive Sensing, Active Learning and Experimental Design:
          Theory, Methods and Applications

      Whistler, BC, Canada, December 11, 2009

Important Dates:

  • Submission of extended abstracts: October 27, 2009 (later submission might not be considered for review)

  • Notification of acceptance: November 5, 2009

  • Workshop date: December 11, 2009


The fields of active learning, adaptive sensing and sequential
experimental design have seen a growing interest over the last decades
in a number of communities, ranging from machine learning and
statistics to biology and computer vision. Broadly speaking, all
active and adaptive approaches focus on closing the loop between data
analysis and acquisition. Said in a different way the goal is to use
information collected in past samples to adjust and improve the future
sampling and learning processes, in the spirit of the twenty questions
game. These fields typically address the problem in very diverse ways,
and using different problem formulations. The main objective of this
workshop is to bring these communities together, share ideas and
knowledge, and cross-fertilize the various fields.

Submission instructions:

We invite submission of extended abstracts to the workshop. Extended
abstracts should beat most 3 pages in length, formatted in according
to NIPS style. However, the submission should not be blind. Extended
abstracts should be sent in PDF or PS file format by email to

The selected submission may be accepted either as an oral presentation
or as a poster presentation. We encourage participants who can
contribute in the following areas:

The above list is not exhaustive, and we welcome submissions on highly
related topics too. Accepted extended abstracts will be made available
online at the workshop website.
