Igor Vajda

We would like to inform you that Colloquium in memory of Igor Vajda will take place November 12-13, 2010, in Prague, organized by the Institute of Information Theory and Automation (ÚTIA) of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The scientific programme is focused on the topics to which Igor Vajda have substantially contributed: the information theory and its applications to mathematical statistics.

Continuing the series of international conferences on stochastics organized in Prague since 1956 the Department of Probability and Mathematical Statistics, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University and the Department of Stochastic Informatics, Institute of Information Theory and Automation, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic organize the Prague Stochastics 2010 which will be held from August 30 to September 3, 2010.


The workshop will be held in UTIA from August 3 to August 6, 2009. The topics concern mainly the central limit theorem and invariance principles for sequences and arrays of dependent random variables. Many specialists of the field already confirmed their participation.
