This workshop aims at promoting discussions among researchers investigating learning from the scarce data. Typically, domain adaptation, transfer of knowledge, zero-, one- or few-shot learning are examples of inference from the scarce data. However, rapid progress has been made in domain adaptation and few-shot learning thanks to Convolutional Neural Networks. The well-established benchmarks such as the famous Office dataset have been nearly saturated with algorithms reaching ~90% accuracy. This workshop aims at going beyond conventional datasets and conventional approaches thus posing a new challenge that aiming to shake up the status quo.


We encourage discussions on recent advances, ongoing developments, and novel applications of domain adaptation, zero-, one- and few-shot learning. We are soliciting ivited talks that address a wide range of theoretical and practical issues including, but not limited to:
