The 5th Multidisciplinary Conference on Reinforcement Learning and Decision Making (RLDM2022)
June 8-11, 2022
Brown University, Providence, RI, USA

Over the last few decades, reinforcement learning and decision making have been the focus of an incredible wealth of research spanning a wide variety of fields including psychology, artificial intelligence, machine learning, operations research, control theory, animal and human neuroscience, economics and ethology. Key to many developments in the field has been interdisciplinary sharing of ideas and findings. The goal of RLDM is to provide a platform for communication among all researchers interested in “learning and decision making over time to achieve a goal”. The meeting is characterized by the multidisciplinarity of the presenters and attendees, with cross-disciplinary conversations and teaching and learning being central objectives along with the dissemination of novel theoretical and experimental results. The main meeting will be single-track, consisting of a mixture of invited and contributed talks, tutorials, and poster sessions.

Talk and Poster Abstracts

Reinforcement learning and decision making have been the focus of research spanning a wide variety of fields including psychology, artificial intelligence, machine learning, operations research, control theory, animal and human neuroscience, economics, and ethology. Key to many developments in the field has been interdisciplinary sharing of ideas and findings. RLDM is the only conference that brings all these communities together.

The focus of the conference can be broadly construed as decision making over time to achieve a goal. Our aim is to create a recurring meeting characterized by the multidisciplinarity of the presenters and attendees, with cross-disciplinary conversations and teaching and learning being central objectives along with the dissemination of novel theoretical and experimental results.
