Call for Papers: Second Workshop on Adaptive Data Analysis

As part of NIPS 2016, we will be running the second annual workshop on adaptive data analysis. Last year's workshop was a big hit. As a new addition this year, we are soliciting submitted contributions in addition to invited speakers. The call for papers is below. If you are working on relevant work, definitely submit it to our workshop! More information at:

Call for Papers

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 Oct 15, 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
