5th Symposium on
Advances in Approximate Bayesian Inference

Co-located with ICML in Honolulu Hawaii, Sunday July 23rd, 2023.

In recent years, there have been numerous advances in approximate inference methods, which have enabled Bayesian inference in increasingly challenging scenarios involving complex probabilistic models and large datasets. The 5th Symposium on Advances in Approximate Bayesian Inference (AABI) will discuss this impact of Bayesian inference, connecting both variational and Monte Carlo methods with other fields. We encourage submissions that relate Bayesian inference to the fields of deep learning, reinforcement learning, causal inference, decision processes, Bayesian compression, or differential privacy, among others. We also encourage submissions that contribute to connecting different approximate inference methods.

The symposium will take place in the Garden Lanai room of the Ala Moana Hotel in downtown Honolulu (maps link).


Registration will be free but limited. More details coming soon!
