1. A clear, self-contained description of an open problem

3. The current state of understanding for this problem, including
known partial solutions and citations of related published work

We especially encourage people to propose descriptions of new
interesting research directions in areas that are currently outside
the scope of COLT, such as bioinformatics, privacy and security, and
vision, to name a few. Ideally, your open problems or research
directions should include well-defined mathematical questions,
nontrivial, and explainable without requiring too much specialized
background knowledge in a 5-10 minutes talk. Monetary rewards for
solving an open problem are encouraged but not required. Format and
submission: The open problems should be 1-2 pages long in the COLT
proceedings format.

Please submit them electronically to with subject line
"open problem for Colt2010". The submissions, in pdf or ps, should be
