Subject: AI Statistics conference, Key West, Florida, Jan 3-6, 2003

Ninth International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Statistics
January 3-6, 2003, Hyatt Hotel, Key West, Florida
Deadline for early registration is 1 December 2002.

This is the ninth in a series of workshops which have brought together researchers in Artificial Intelligence and in Statistics to discuss problems of mutual interest. The exchange has broadened research in both fields and has strongly encouraged interdisciplinary work.

The beginning of January is a very popular time of year for visitors to Key West, and so you are strongly urged to register early and to reserve your accommodation at the substantially reduced conference rate.

Invited Speakers:

  • Andrew Blake (Microsoft Research, Cambridge)
  • Bill Freeman (MIT)
  • Zoubin Ghahramani (Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit)
  • David Haussler (UCSC)
  • Geoffrey Hinton (University of Toronto)
  • Tommi Jaakkola (MIT)
  • Larwrence Saul (University of Pennsylvania)

There has been a record number of submissions to this conference, and after a rigorous review process we have been able to accept 15% of the submissions for oral presentation and 27% for poster presentation. A full programme is available on the web site.

Key West provides a superb location for this workshop, and the weather at Key West in January is expected to be very pleasant. The workshop timetable will focus on morning and early evening sessions, allowing ample free time in the afternoons for scientific discussions or to take advantage of local attractions such as scuba diving, snorkelling, wave runners, parasailing, fishing, sailing and golf.
