An event entitled 'Workshop on inferning: interactions between inference and learning' will take place on 30 June 2012 in Edinburgh, UK.

Algorithms can not only learn a model, but they can also use the resulting model parameters for inference. These types of interactions are usually studied from two perspectives.

The first perspective studies how the choice of an inference algorithm influences the parameters the model ultimately learns. For example, many parameter estimation algorithms require inference as a subroutine.

The other way of studying these interactions is to consider how the learning objective and model parameters can impact both the quality and performance of inference during 'test time'.

The workshop will bring together practitioners from different fields in order to study a unified framework for understanding and formalising the interactions between learning and inference.For further information, please visit: http://inferning.cs.umass.edu/cfp
