Reminder: Bob Newcomb Memorial

Reminder: A Statistical Tribute to Bob Newcomb
 
Renowned statistician, ASA fellow, and founding president of Orange County/Long Beach chapter Professor Robert (Bob) Newcomb of the University of California at Irvine passed away on July 10, 2014 due to complications of a sudden illness.   Three chapters of the American Statistical Association in the southern California region (San Diego, Southern California, and OCLB) are organizing a memorial service to celebrate Bob's successful life, which profoundly influenced the statistical community and the lives of many statisticians.   This statistical tribute will be held on November 15, 2014 at Cooper Auditorium at the City of Hope Medical Center in Duarte, California.
 
All statisticians who are interested in learning about or sharing Bob's legend are encouraged to join us between 10:00 am and 4:30 pm at the Cooper Auditorium at City of Hope. 
 
Lunch will be provided, however, please pre-register before November 10. Lunch can't be guaranteed if you do not pre-register or if you register after November 10.

Japan in 2001. Since then, WI has been held yearly in several
countries, including: Canada, China, France, USA, Australia and
Italy. WI conference is recognized as the World's leading forum
related to Web Intelligence. In 2014, it will be organized in
Warsaw as a Special Event commemorating the 25th anniversary of
the Web.

*** About WIC'14 ***

The 2014 Web Intelligence Congress (WIC'14) includes four
international conferences related to intelligent informatics:

- IEEE/WIC/ACM Web Intelligence 2014 (WI'14)
- IEEE/WIC/ACM Intelligent Agent Technology 2014 (IAT'14)
- Active Media Technology 2014 (AMT'14)
- Brain Informatics & Heath 2014 (BIH'14)

They are co-located in order to bring together researchers and
practitioners from diverse fields with the purpose of exploring
the fundamental roles, interactions and practical impacts of
Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Information Technology.

*** About the Venue ***

The conference will be held in August - the best Summer period
to visit Warsaw and Poland. Lectures will take place in Central
Campus of the University of Warsaw, in the Old Library building
converted to a modern conference center. The campus is located
in downtown Warsaw, close to the Old Town and Vistula River.

SDM'14 Call For Participation--Early Registration Deadline Approaching

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

SDM'14: THE FOURTEENTH SIAM INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DATA MINING
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
April 24 - 26, 2014

DESCRIPTION
Data mining is an important tool in science, engineering, industrial processes, healthcare, business, and medicine. The datasets in these fields are large, complex, and often noisy.  Extracting knowledge requires the use of sophisticated, high-performance and principled analysis techniques and algorithms, based on sound theoretical and statistical foundations. These techniques in turn require implementations that are carefully tuned for performance; powerful visualization technologies; interface systems that are usable by scientists, engineers, and physicians as well as researchers; and infrastructures that support them.

This conference provides a venue for researchers who are addressing these problems to present their work in a peer-reviewed forum. It also provides an ideal setting for graduate students and others new to the field to learn about cutting-edge research by hearing outstanding invited speakers and attending presentations and tutorials (included with conference registration). A set of focused workshops is also held on the last day of the conference. The proceedings of the conference are published in archival form, and are also made available on the SIAM web site.

REGISTRATION
Pre-registration deadline – 4:00PM EDT March 27, 2014
