Learning theory is one of the main research directions devoted to the study of the theory of data science. The focus of learning theory is on the nontrivial connections between all facets of information extraction and high dimensional phenomena; specifically on the way such phenomena are manifested in applications in statistics, optimization, and complexity theory.By now it is understood that key questions in learning theory lead to deep problems in pure mathematics and in theoretical computer science. The goal of the proposed conference is to bring together researchers from all over the world who are interested in mathematical aspects of learning theory.In 2004 CRM hosted a tremendously successful meeting on the mathematical foundations of learning theory. The key to success was to bring together leading mathematicians working in probability and high-dimensional geometry with researchers on theoretical machine learning. We hope to repeat the same formula 20 years later, after witnessing an explosion of the subject that nobody foresaw 20 years ago.
