The LION conference has traditionally hosted quite a few COSEAL-relevant papers. The upcoming edition of LION will be no different; or maybe it will have even more? We have a few special sessions this year that are particularly relevant for AutoML and configuration. Please see the call for papers below.
Call For Papers: The 17th Conference on Learning and Intelligent Optimization (LION17) to be held in Nice, France from June 4-8, 2023
Abstract submission: January 25, 2023

The site will start accepting submissions on November 1, 2022.
Topics of Interest
The 17th Learning and Intelligent Optimization conference is an interdisciplinary conference that brings together researchers in operations research, machine learning and related fields. We welcome contributions on all LION themes, i.e., topics containing exact and heuristic optimization involving learning or intelligent techniques, such as determining and applying appropriate optimization methods, expensive algorithm configuration, intelligent learning schemes for learning from past algorithm behavior, hybrid algorithms (evolutionary, etc.) to achieve robust and effective performance. Also, we solicit contributions on this year's special theme "ML and OR pipelines".
We invite submissions presenting new and original research on all topics related and relevant to the conference. All papers will be reviewed in a double-blind process and accepted papers will be presented at the conference.
Papers accepted into the LION17 proceedings will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Submitted papers can have a maximum length of 15 pages (including references) and should use the LNCS template, which can be found here: https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines
. Papers must be submitted as a PDF in English.
Please note that concurrent submissions are not allowed, and that a unique author of each accepted paper must register for conference for the paper to be included in the proceedings.
In addition to submissions about general LION themes, we also welcome submissions related to one of our special sessions. The special sessions will be part of the regular conference and are subject to the same peer-review as all other submissions.
Special session 1: Bayesian Optimization and (Machine) Learning: Solutions, Applications, Challenges, and Perspectives
