—————————————————————-

Tractable probabilistic modeling (TPM) is concerned with the inherent trade-off between the expressivity of the probabilistic models and the complexity of performing various types of inference on them, as well as learning them from data. Traditional topics in this area include efficient learning of probabilistic models, exact inference, and approximate routines with guarantees. Relevant model classes include low- and bounded-treewidth PGM, determinantal point processes, exchangeable probabilistic models, arithmetic circuits, sum-product networks, cutset networks, probabilistic sentential decision diagrams, and more. Successful real-world applications of such models comprise: image classification, completion and generation, scene understanding, activity recognition, language and speech modeling, bioinformatics, collaborative filtering, verification and diagnosis of physical systems.

This year\’s workshop will focus especially on bringing together researchers working on the different fronts and communities of TPM. We especially encourage submissions highlighting the challenges and opportunities for tractable inference and modeling within the rising field of probabilistic programming and the neural probabilistic modeling community, recently achieving impressive successes in many application fields.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of possible venues. Any other work relevant to the TPM community will be highly appreciated.

Tractable inference with neural probabilistic models

Challenges in tractable probabilistic programming

New tractable representations in discrete, continuous and hybrid domains

Tractable models and explainable AI
