Workshop on Advances in Theory and Algorithms for Deep Reinforcement Learning
02 Aug 2021 - 04 Aug 2021 • Providence, RI, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
There has been significant progress over the last few years in the theory and applications of Reinforcement Learning (RL). While RL theory and applications have had a rich history going back several decades, the major recent successes have occurred due to a successful marriage between deep learning approaches for function approximation embedded within a reinforcement learning framework for decision-making (Deep RL). On one hand, there has been a richer understanding of Stochastic Gradient Descent (SGD) for non-convex optimization, its impact in driving training error to zero in deep neural networks, and on the generalization ability of such networks for inference. On the other hand, there has been an explosion of research on iterative learning algorithms with strong statistical guarantees in the settings of reinforcement learning, stochastic approximation and multi-armed bandits. This workshop aims to bring leading researchers from these two threads, with the goal of understanding and advancing research at their intersection. We will also explore other potential connections between deep learning and deep RL, including but not limited to: Understanding generalization in deep RL and how it is related to and/or different from generalization in deep learning; Connections between adversarial training in deep learning (e.g., Generative Adversarial Networks) and the optimization aspects of recent deep RL algorithms based on generalized moment matching in off-policy RL and imitation learning. This workshop is fully funded by a Simons Foundation Targeted Grant to Institutes.

Mathematics and Analogical Reasoning
27 Aug 2021 - 28 Aug 2021 • Munich, Germany
Abstract:
The goal of this conference is to investigate the role of mathematics as a heuristic device for analogical reasoning in science and philosophy. ​ Empirical science relies heavily on mathematics. Mathematical models enable physicists to simulate dynamical ‘dumb hole’ analogues to gravitational black holes (Curiel 2019; Dardashti, Thébault, and Winsberg 2017; Gryb, Palacios, and Thébault 2019), chemists to study the behaviour of molecules, medical researchers to examine the spreading rate of diseases, and biologists to understand changes in animal populations. There is no doubt that mathematics is an indispensable scientific tool.

XXV. Congress of the German Society for Philosophy
05 Sep 2021 - 08 Sep 2021 • Nürnberg, Germany
Abstract:
The 25th conference of the German Society of Philosophy deals with the true, the good, and the beautiful – and, therefore, with everything? Yes and no. As always, the conference will be an exhibition of philosophy and provide the opportunity to present research from all parts of philosophy: in 40 sections there will be talks about virtually all fields and periods of philosophy. At the same time, there will be, mainly in the colloquia, a focus on special questions, which have, in recent years, more and more taken centre stage in philosophical research. These questions are concerned with the relations between truth, goodness and beauty: What is the relation between epistemic and practical norms? Can judgements about the good and the beautiful be true (and false)? What is the value of truth? Is a good life a beautiful life? Is the aim of art beauty, truth or goodness? These and related questions are located at the intersection of theoretical and practical philosophy – and, therefore, maybe at the centre of philosophy in general.

New Frontiers in Proofs and Computation
12 Sep 2021 - 17 Sep 2021 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
This workshop is dedicated to Hao Wang, for his pioneering work in connecting human and formal thinking that permeates (O1)-(O3). A greater understanding of these topics will no doubt lead to a better understanding of computation in mathematics and computer science, and increase the prominence of mathematical logic and proof theory in China, Asia, and the world.

LATD 20201 — Logic, Algebra and Truth Degrees 2021
13 Sep 2021 - 17 Sep 2021 • Tbilisi, Georgia
Abstract:
The LATD conference series started as an official meeting of the working group on Mathematical Fuzzy Logic and has evolved into a wider meeting in algebraic logic and related areas. Its main goal is to foster collaboration between researchers in these areas, and to promote communication and cooperation with members of neighbouring fields.

Diagrams 2021 — 12th International Conference on the Theory and Application of Diagrams
28 Sep 2021 - 30 Sep 2021 • Virtual Conference, United Kingdom
Abstract:
Diagrams is the only conference series that provides a united forum for all areas that are concerned with the study of diagrams and has a multidisciplinary emphasis. The multidisciplinary nature of Diagrams means it encompasses: architecture, art, artificial intelligence, biology, cartography, cognitive science, computer science, education, graphic design, history of science, human-computer interaction, linguistics, logic, mathematics, philosophy, psychology, and software modelling. The conference attracts a large number of researchers from these interrelated fields, positioning Diagrams as the major international event in the area.

Neostability Theory
31 Oct 2021 - 05 Nov 2021 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Stability theory, in the sense of mathematical logic, consists of a collection of technical methods first developed to address the logical problem of classifying abstract models of mathematical theories. Stability theory has proven to be applicable to other mathematical problems such as understanding rational solutions of algebraic equations. It has recently been shown that the techniques and methods used for the classification described above can be used in much more general settings with applications to other areas of mathematics such as algebraic geometry, additive combinatorics and extremal graph theory. Researchers at this meeting will study these developments to deepen these applications, and to extend the scope of stability theory to an even wider range of mathematical theories.
