  • About this book

This volume contains papers presented at the 17th Annual Conference on Le- ning Theory (previously known as the Conference on Computational Learning Theory) held in Ban?, Canada from July 1 to 4, 2004. The technical program contained 43 papers selected from 107 submissions, 3 open problems selected from among 6 contributed, and 3 invited lectures. The invited lectures were given by Michael Kearns on ‘Game Theory, Automated Trading and Social Networks’, Moses Charikar on ‘Algorithmic Aspects of - nite Metric Spaces’, and Stephen Boyd on ‘Convex Optimization, Semide?nite Programming, and Recent Applications’. These papers were not included in this volume. The Mark Fulk Award is presented annually for the best paper co-authored by a student. Thisyear theMark Fulk award wassupplemented with two further awards funded by the Machine Learning Journal and the National Information Communication Technology Centre, Australia (NICTA).
