Information Theory, Learning and Big Data

Mar. 16Mar. 20, 2015
  • Click on the titles of individual talks for abstract, slides and archived video.
  • The workshop is oversubscribed; only registered participants are permitted to attend.
  • We will be using an overflow room showing the live video feed in order to accommodate as many registered participants as possible. Seating in the auditorium is not guaranteed and will be on a first-come, first-served basis for registered participants only. We strongly suggest that participants arrive early for each talk to secure seating in the auditorium. Doors will open each day at 8:30 a.m.
  • Talks will also be streamed live on this page during the workshop. If you did not register, we hope that you will be able to either join us for the live webcast or enjoy the videos at a later time.

All events take place in the Calvin Lab Auditorium.
