19–23 August 2019 PRAGUE STOCHASTICS 2019
Prague, Czech Republic
The conference Prague Stochastics 2019 continues a traditional series of international conferences on stochastics organized by the Institute of Information Theory and Automation in Prague since 1956.
The conference will consist of two workshops that will mostly take place in parallel, except for a possible joint afternoon with general audience talks on Wednesday. These workshops are as follows.
The first workshop is devoted to František Matúš, who passed away on May 17, 2018. His research interests reached several mathematical fields: he was involved in information theory, probability theory, statistics, geometry, algebra and matroid theory. Thus, the workshop to commemorate him is intended to be multidisciplinary, involving those fields in which František worked or the areas close to his interests. We particularly welcome contributions devoted to information geometry, entropic regions, information inequalities, cryptography, polymatroids, optimization of convex integral functionals, discrete Markovian random sequences, conditional independence, semigraphoids, graphical models, exponential families and algebraic statistics.
The second workshop on complex systems is devoted to stochastic theory of systems with many components, in particular those inspired by theoretical physics and population biology. It will host talks by 20 invited speakers, experts in the area.
