NIPS 2016 Workshop


An international workshop in conjunction with the 30th Annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS 2016)


December 9, 2016, Barcelona, Spain

Doc. RNDr. Martin Janžura, Csc. passed away

We regret to announce that Martin Janžura passed away on August 2, 2016, aged 61. His research was centered around the statistics of Gibbs random fields. For many years, he served the Institute as a deputy director. Since 2011 he has been Editor-in-Chief of the journal Kybernetika. As an associated professor, he lectured at the Charles University and the Czech Technical University on various topics in statistics and information theory. He will be missed by his colleagues and students. In him, our institute has lost an original and notable character.


The workshop is being held under the auspices of the 30th Annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS 2016).
