The Twelfth International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR)

The Twelfth International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR)
The Twelfth International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR) will be held in Vienna Austria, May 7--11, 2024.

We invite submissions to the 12th International Conference on Learning Representations, and welcome paper submissions from all areas of machine learning.

For any information needed that is not listed below, please submit questions using this link:

Key dates

The planned dates are as follows (all times are UTC-12h, aka “Anywhere on Earth”):

  • Abstract submission: 11:59pm, Sept 21
  • Submission date: 11:59pm, Sept 28
  • Reviews released: Nov 10
  • Author/Reviewer Discussion: Nov 10-21
  • Final decisions: Jan 15 2024

Subject Areas

We consider a broad range of subject areas including feature learning, metric learning, compositional modeling, structured prediction, reinforcement learning, uncertainty quantification and issues regarding large-scale learning and non-convex optimization, as well as applications in vision, audio, speech, language, music, robotics, games, healthcare, biology, sustainability, economics, ethical considerations in ML, and others.

A non-exhaustive list of relevant topics:

  • unsupervised, self-supervised, semi-supervised, and supervised representation learning
  • representation learning for planning, reinforcement learning, and lifelong learning
  • representation learning for computer vision, audio, language, and other modalities
  • metric learning and kernel learning
  • sparse coding and dimensionality expansion
  • hierarchical models
  • uncertainty quantification
  • Bayesian and probabilistic methods, optimal transport
  • optimization
  • theoretical issues in deep learning
  • societal considerations including fairness, safety, privacy, and interpretability
  • visualization or interpretation of learned representations
  • implementation issues, parallelization, software platforms, hardware
  • applications in speech, robotics & autonomy, programming, formal reasoning, neuroscience & cognitive science, chemistry, biology, physics, or any other field

Double blind reviewing

Submissions will be double blind: reviewers cannot see author names when conducting reviews, and authors cannot see reviewer names.  Having papers on arxiv is allowed per the dual submission policy outlined below.  

We use OpenReview to host papers and allow for public discussions that can be seen by all, comments that are posted by reviewers will remain anonymous. The program will include oral presentations and posters of accepted papers.

Authors can revise their paper as many times as needed up to the paper submission deadline. Changes to the paper will not be allowed while the paper is being reviewed. During the discussion phase (between area chairs, reviewers and authors), edits will again be allowed; a pdfdiff will be done against the submission at the paper submission deadline. Authors are encouraged to be explicit and precise about changes to the paper in their response to reviews. Area chairs and reviewers reserve the right to ignore changes that are significant from the original scope of the paper. 

As in past years, workshops will have their own organization and call for contributions.

Submission Instructions

This year we are asking authors to submit paper abstracts by the abstract submission deadline of Sept 21, 2023. Please note that no changes on the authors and their orders can be made after the abstract submission deadline. Also, please make sure that all authors have an OpenReview profile with the latest information.  Abstracts submitted by the abstract submission deadline must be genuine; placeholder or duplicate abstracts will be removed.

The full paper submission deadline is Sept 28, 2023 11:59pm AOE. Abstracts and papers must be submitted using the conference submission system at: The submission site will be open on Aug 25, 2023.  Supplementary material is due at the same time as the main paper.
