Special Session on Deep and Generative Adversarial Learning
International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2019)
July 14-19 2019, Budapest, Hungary https://www.ijcnn.org/

Submission Deadline: 15 December 2018

Aims and Scope:
Deep Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) are one of the most recent breakthroughs in deep learning (DL) and neural networks. One of the main advantages of GANs over other deep learning systems is their ability to learn from unlabelled data, as well as their ability to generate new data from random distributions. However, generating realistic data using GANs remains a challenge, particularly when specific features are required; e.g., constraining the latent aggregate distribution space does not guarantee that the generator will produce an image with a specific attribute. New advancements in deep representation learning (RL) can help improve the learning process in GANs. For instance, RL can help address issues such as dataset bias and network co-adaptation, and help identify a set of features that are ideal for a given task.
Practical applications of GANs include: realistic data synthesis, generation of speech or images from text, image denoising and completion, artificial environment generation for reinforcement learning problems, conversion of satellite images into maps, class imbalance learning, or other unsupervised and supervised learning tasks. Nonetheless, GANs have yet to overcome several challenges. They often fail to converge and are very sensitive to parameter and hyperparameter initialization. Simultaneous learning of a generator and a discriminator network also makes the learning process more difficult and often results in overfitting or vanishing gradients in the generator network. Moreover, the generator model is prone to mode collapse which results in failure to generate data with several variations. New theoretical methods in deep learning and GANs are therefore required to improve the learning process and generalization performance of GANs. Topics of interest for this special session include, but are not limited to:
*             Generative adversarial learning methods and theory;
*             Representation learning methods and theory;
*             Adversarial representation learning for domain adaptation;
*             Interpretable representation adversarial learning;
*             Adversarial feature learning;
*             RL and GANs for data augmentation and class imbalance;
*             New GAN models and learning criteria;
*             RL and GANs in classification;
*             Image completion and super-resolution;
*             RL and GANs in Deep Reinforcement Learning;
*             Deep learning and GANs for image and video synthesis;
*             Deep Learning and GANs for speech and audio synthesis;
*             RL and GANs and for In-painting and Sketch to image;
*             Representation and Adversarial Learning in Machine Translation;
*             RL and GANs in other application domains.
