The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers in theoretical and applied machine learning, to share their work and to explore collaborative opportunities.

Workshop themes

  • Deep Learning Theory
  • Machine Learning Applications in Physical/Biological Sciences
  • Bayesian Approaches in Machine Learning
  • Interpretability, Fairness and Privacy in Machine Learning
  • Reinforcement Learning Theory



  • Tutorials (10–14 Oct)
  • Scientific Sessions (Weeks of 17 Oct and 24 Oct): We will start with more application based talks in the week of 17 Oct and transitioning towards more theory focused sessions in the last week (24 Oct), but there will be a mix of both to potentially accommodate participants who can only come in a specific time window.

24 October 2022, Deepavali is a Public Holiday.
