About RLC

The first Reinforcement Learning Conference (RLC) will be held in Amherst, Massachusetts from August 9–12, 2024. RLC is an annual international conference focusing on reinforcement learning. RLC provides an archival venue where reinforcement learning researchers can interact and share their research in a more focused setting than typical large machine learning venues. The RLC peer review process prioritizes rigorous methodology over perceived importance, aiming to foster scholarly discussions on both well-established and emerging topics in RL. Papers accepted by RLC are published as articles in the Reinforcement Learning Journal (RLJ).

We invite submissions presenting new and original research on topics including, but not limited to:

We also welcome interdisciplinary research that does not fit neatly into existing categories, but which falls under the broad scope of reinforcement learning research.
