The conference will be co­located with several other academic conferences

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, July 10, 2018 The 35th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML 2018) will be held in Stockholm, Sweden from Tuesday, July 10 through Sunday, July 15, 2018. This year's meeting is co­located with the International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS) and the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI), and will include a joint plenary session and joint workshops. This presents a unique opportunity for exchange and collaboration. The International Conference on Case­Based Reasoning (ICCBR), The Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Search (SoCS) and the The World Computer Chess Championships will also be held at the same time.

ICML is the leading international machine learning conference and is supported by the International Machine Learning Society (IMLS). This year’s program co­chairs are Jennifer Dy and Andreas Krause. Francis Bach is serving as general chair.

The core of the ICML 2018 conference is the main technical program of contributed papers, talks, and posters. The main ICML technical program also features four world­class keynote talks by invited speakers at the forefront of the field. The main technical program is preceded by a tutorials day featuring nine tutorial sessions that cover core topics in machine learning today. The main technical program is followed by 67 workshops spread over three days of meetings. This year, these workshops are jointly organized by members of the ICML, IJCAI, ECAI, and AAMAS communities.

Two best paper awards will honor some of the most promising research from the technical program. The ICML­2018 Test of Time award will also be presented. This award is for the paper from the 2008 ICML conference that has retrospectively had a significant impact on the field. It goes to the paper, “A Unified Architecture for Natural Language Processing: Deep Neural Networks with Multi Task Learning” by Ronan Collobert and Jason Weston.
