NIPS Workshop DECISION MAKING WITH MULTIPLE IMPERFECT DECISION MAKERS at the 24th Annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems successfully took place.
The Workshop proceedings can be found here.
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.

The fundament of the patent consists in a structural configuration of robotic device based on parallel kinematic concept enabling a specific connection of drives both rotational and only purely direct linear for its motion. Robotic device is intended for machining centers with top milling operations.
Inventor: Ing. Květoslav Belda, Ph.D.
Department of Adaptive Systems
With regret we have to announce that Dr. Igor Vajda passed away suddenly after a short illness on May 2, 2010.
His death came as an unexpected and heavy loss. We will miss him as a great scientist and as a dear colleague and friend.
His wife Zdenka and daughters Tereza and Veronika express, on behalf of the family, their thanks to all his colleagues for their condolences.
Doc. RNDr. Sergej Čelikovský, CSc. was awarded Guest Professor of Wuhan University, China.Wuhan is the metropolis and most populous city of central China and lies at the intersection of the middle reaches of the Yangtze and Han River. Wuhan University (http://w3.whu.edu.cn/en/) belongs too the most important universities of China with a rich tradition. The award is a prize of appreciation for the long scientific cooperation of ÚTIA and Sergej Čelikovský with china institutions and their experts in nonlinear dynamical systems.
