Conference on Learning Theory

The 35th Annual Conference on Learning Theory (COLT 2022) takes place July 2–5, 2022 in London, UK. It will be preceded on July 1 with a 1-day workshop jointly organized by COLT and the IMS (Institute of Mathematical Statistics). Both will be held at The Royal Institution of Great Britain, 21 Albemarle Street, W1S 4BS London, UK.

The plenary speakers for COLT 2022 are Maryam Fazel (University of Washington), Jelani Nelson (UC Berkeley), and Alon Orlitsky (UC San Diego).

The registration link for COLT also includes registration for the joint COLT-IMS workshop (in person only), conference dinner, and the luncheon for Women in Learning Theory and allies.

Covid-19: due to a recent rise in cases we kindly ask all attendees to maintain social distancing whenever possible, to wear masks indoors, and to consider undergoing Covid-19 testing (lateral flow tests). We plan to distribute masks and LFT kits to attendees to make this as simple as possible. If you are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms and/or tested positive, please do not come to the venue and let us know (email the organisers).

The conference is hybrid in the minimal sense that we will enable authors to give their presentation-at-a-distance, and we will stream the conference and enable questions to be asked from a distance; but that is all. So on-line participation is possible, but support will be minimal: after over two years of pandemic, we want to very strongly encourage you to come in person if you can!

If you are tweeting about COLT 2022, please include the hashtag #COLT2022 to increase visibility!

Details about pricing, visas, travel grants, and other local information are available.
