Northern Lights Deep Learning Conference 2023

NLDL 2023

Artificial Intelligence

Please join for the 6th Northern Lights Deep Learning Conference (NLDL) on 10-12 January 2023 in Tromsø, Norway, organized by Visual Intelligence and the UiT Machine Learning Group.
We look forward to gathering the deep learning community again in the cool arctic air for a physical conference, after two years online.
In addition, the NLDL winter school, which is a part of the NORA research school, starts at Jan 9 and ends at Jan 13 and incorporates events during the main conference days. The winter school includes scientific topics, industry event, women in AI event, and transferrable skills. More information coming soon at
We invite submissions presenting new and original research on all aspects of Deep Learning. The topics include but are not limited to the following:
· Architecture, concepts and optimization
· Deep learning for structured and unstructured data
· Graph neural networks
· Generative models
· Bayesian Deep Learning
· Lightweight / frugal Deep Learning
· Explainability and interpretability of Deep Learning models
· Computer vision
· Natural language processing
· Deep Learning for signals, images, 3D and hyperspectral images
· Deep Learning applications to biology and medicine
· Deep Learning application to environment and ecology
· Deep Learning applications to Physics
· Deep Learning for industrial applications
As always, we are happy to have top international speakers. This year, for instance
· Mark Girolami – University of Cambridge/Alan Turing Institute
· Mihaela van der Shaar – University of Cambridge/Alan Turing Institute
· Polina Golland – MIT
and more to come.
We are accepting two alternatives for contributions: (1) Full paper submissions (6 pages) will be presented either as orals or as posters and will be published in the conference proceedings. The proceedings are approved as a level 1 publication in the Norwegian national list of authorized research publication channels; (2) Extended abstracts (2 pages) will be presented either as orals or as posters (but not published in the conference proceedings). The review process is double-blind.
Deadline for both types of submissions: September 16th, 2022.
Instructions on template etc. can be found on
A tentative program will be available soon at and will include keynotes, scientific talks, an industry event, a Women in AI event and social events.
We hope to see many participants for a nice scientific gathering on the “north pole”, including social events, and hopefully some northern lights
Kind regards,
The NLDL 2023 organizing committee
