The 13th IEEE International Conference on Machine Learning and Applications (ICMLA) is the premier conference on topics at the confluence of machine learning and its application communities. Since 2003, ICMLA has successfully brought together leading researchers and developers from machine learning communities. The purpose of the conference is to identify challenging problems facing the development and applications of machine learning systems, and to shape future research directions through the publication of high quality, applied and theoretical research findings. In ICMLA 2014, we will continue the tradition of promoting collaboration among multiple areas. During ICMLA 2014, which will be held in Detroit, we will create a program that bridges further the academic-commercial gap in the machine learning and applications communities. Attendees will hear about very recent research results and be able to network with the who-is-who (luminaries, researchers, and practitioners) in the field.
