Conformal and probabilistic prediction with applications (COPA 2018)
A sister method of Venn prediction was developed at the same time as conformal prediction and is used for probabilistic prediction. The COPA series of workshops/symposia is a home for work in both conformal and Venn prediction, as reflected in its full name “Conformal and Probabilistic Prediction with Applications”. The aim of this symposium is to serve as a forum for the presentation of new and ongoing work and the exchange of ideas between researchers on any aspect of Conformal and Probabilistic Prediction and their applications to interesting problems of any field.
Topics of the symposium include, but are not limited to:
- Theoretical analysis of conformal prediction, including performance guarantees
- Applications of conformal prediction in various fields, including bioinformatics, medicine, and information security
- Novel conformity measures
- Conformal anomaly detection
- Venn prediction and other methods of multiprobability prediction
- Conformal predictive distributions
- Probabilistic prediction
- On-line compression modelling
- Prediction in:
- Algorithmic information theory
- Data visualization
- Big data applications
- Conformal Prediction in Medical Applications
- Drug Discovery
