Ladislav Kristoufek was awarded by the 1st place in PhD students competition for his research paper "Mixed-correlated ARFIMA processes for power-law cross-correlations" at the 31st International Conference on Mathematical Methods in Economics 2013 in Jihlava, Czech Republic

ManyVal is a series of international workshops on the logical and algebraic aspects of many-valued reasoning. The aim of the workshops is to gather both established and young researchers sharing an interest for a specific topic. Accordingly, each edition has a sharp focus. The attendance is limited in order to facilitate close and informal interaction. There are no parallel sessions. Contributed talks are allocated ample time.
