From the 2009 MLSS website:
This school is suitable for all levels, both for people without previous knowledge in Machine Learning, and those wishing to broaden their expertise in this area. It will allow the participants to get in touch with international experts in this field. Exchange of students, joint publications and joint projects will result because of this collaboration.
The Summer schools will run from the 26–30th of January 2009 and registration is open. Note that there is a 20% surcharge for registrations after the 19th of December 2008 so get registering.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have been given a spot on the program. I’ll be talking about some the work I’ve been doing with Bob Williamson this year on analysing relationships between various notions of risk, divergence and information in binary valued prediction problems.
Leave a comment if you’re planning to attend and I’ll make sure I say hi.
Hope to see you there!Mark Reid November 18, 2008 Canberra, Australia
