                             The 1st Multidisciplinary Conference on
                     Reinforcement Learning and Decision Making
                                                     RLDM 2013

     Oct 25-27, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, 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, yet there is no single conference that brings all these communities together.

The focus of this meeting can be broadly construed as "decision making over time to achieve a goal". Our aim is to inaugurate 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.

The first meeting will be single-track, with 8 talk sessions and 2 poster sessions over the course of 2.5 days. This meeting will consist mostly of invited talks and contributed posters (future meetings will concentrate on contributed talks and posters, tutorial sessions and workshops).

Please mark your calendars -- Oct 25-27, Princeton -- more information, including a "Call for Contributions", will follow (note that we will not publish proceedings; papers submitted to RLDM  can be freely submitted elsewhere for publication).

Please circulate widely and encourage your students and postdocs to attend.
