The 2nd Multidisciplinary Conference on Reinforcement Learning and 
Decision Making (RLDM2015)
www.rldm.org <http://www.rldm.org/>

June 7-10, The University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Submissions to RLDM2015 are now being accepted at 
Deadline: 13 February 2015, midnight EST

We invite extended abstracts for contributed poster presentations and 
oral presentations.

We welcome submissions of original research related to “learning and 
decision making over time to achieve a goal”, coming from any 
discipline or disciplines, describing empirical results from human, 
animal or animat experiments, and/or theoretical work, simulations and 
modeling. Contributions should be aimed at an interdisciplinary 
audience, but not at the expense of technical excellence. This is an 
abstract-based meeting, with no published conference proceedings. As 
such, work that is intended for, or has been submitted to, other 
conferences or journals is also welcome, provided that the intent of 
communication to other disciplines is clear.

Submissions should consist of a summary (max 2000 characters; text 
only), and an extended abstract of between one and four pages 
(including figures and references). LaTeX and RTF templates, and sample 
submissions, are available from 

Note: Only the summary will be made available in the (electronic) 
abstract booklets. The extended abstract will be used for reviewing, and 
will be available online only pending on authors’ separate explicit 
permission. Online availability will have no bearing on the review 
process and authors are encouraged to include new, unpublished, findings 
which they do not want to make publicly available.

To submit your abstract please go to 

Submissions will be reviewed for relevance to the topic and for quality. 
Exceptional abstracts will be selected for oral presentations and for 
poster spotlight presentations.
