Those attending the ILP Tutorial Day on Tuesday may pick up their ILP98 registration materials then to avoid the need to do so on Wednesday morning. The ILP Tutorial Day (including registration) will be held in Room 1270, Grainger Hall.
Extended presentations and Invited talks are 40 minutes with an additional 10 minutes for questions. All other presentations are 20 minutes with an additional 5 minutes for questions. Please note room numbers carefully because we will use several different rooms.
On Friday the schedule overlaps with ICML/COLT/UAI. In addition there will be a joint poster session on Saturday from 7:00 to 12:00 at the Madison Convention Center. Poster IDs appear after the talks below.
In the mornings, coffee and bakery items are available from 8:30 - 10:00. Afternoon refreshments are available at the 3:10 break. Lunches on Wednesday and Thursday are paid in the registration fee and are served in Room 3275.
