Adaptive Data Analysis Workshop

leave a comment »

Vitaly Feldman, Aaditya Ramdas, Aaron Roth and I are organizing the second annual (?) workshop on adaptive data analysis and post-selection inference, to be held December 9, 2016 in Barcelona (as part of NIPS).

We have a great slate of invited speakers, and are now calling for papers to be presented there (as posters and, for a subset, as short talks).

Send us your papers! CFP follows below the fold. Latest deadline is October 25 (or September 23 if you want an answer in time for early registration).

The overall goal of WADAPT is to stimulate the discussion on theoretical analysis and practical aspects of adaptive data analysis. We seek contributions from different research areas of machine learning, statistics and computer science. Submissions focused on a particular area of application are also welcome.

Submissions will undergo a lightweight review process and will be judged on originality, relevance, clarity, and the extent to which their presentation can stimulate the discussion between different communities at the workshop. Submissions may describe either novel work (completed or in progress), or work already published or submitted elsewhere provided that it first appeared after September 1, 2015.

Authors are invited to submit either a short abstract (2-4 pages) or a complete paper by October 25, 2016. Information about previous publication, if applicable, should appear prominently on the first page of the submission. Abstracts must be written in English and be submitted as a single PDF file at EasyChair.

All accepted abstracts will be presented at the workshop as posters and some will be selected for an oral presentation. The workshop will not have formal proceedings, and presentation at the workshop is not intended to preclude later publication at another venue.

Those who need to receive a notification before the NIPS early registration deadline (Oct 6, 2016) should submit their work by the early submission deadline of Sept 23, 2016.

Important Dates:

  • Submission deadlines. Early: Sep 23, 2016; Regular: Oct 25, 2016. Submit at EasyChair.
  • Notification of acceptance. Early: Oct 3, 2016, Regular: Nov 7, 2016.
  • Workshop: December 9, 2016

Specific topics of interest for the workshop include (but are not limited to):

  • Selective/post-selection inference
  • Sequential/online false discovery rate control
  • Algorithms for answering adaptively chosen data queries
  • Computational and statistical barriers to adaptive data analysis
  • Stability measures and their applications to generalization
  • Information-theoretic approaches to generalization
