Hemant just sent me the following:
Aretha Teckentrup and I are organizing a workshop on “Approximating high dimensional functions” at the Alan Turing Institute, London in December. We were wondering if it would be possible for you to post the announcement for this workshop (below) on your blog Nuit blanche? We would very much appreciate it, thanks a lot in advance!
Sure Hemant, here it is:
================= Announcement ==============================
A workshop on "Approximating high dimensional functions" will be held at the Alan Turing Institute, London on 18, 19 December 2017.
The workshop will focus on problems centered around approximating a high dimensional function from limited information, featuring talks by eminent researchers in the fields of multivariate approximation theory, ridge functions, stochastic PDEs and non-parametric regression.
Confirmed speakers are:
Pierre Alquier (ENSAE, Universite Paris-Saclay, France),
Albert Cohen (Université Pierre et Marie Curie, France),
Sergey Dolgov (University of Bath, UK),
Arthur Gretton / Dougal Sutherland (UCL, UK),
Sandra Keiper (Technische Universität Berlin, Germany),
Sebastian Mayer (Universität Bonn, Germany),
Richard Samworth (University of Cambridge, UK),
Jan Vybiral (Czech Technical University, Czech Republic),
Sören Wolfers (KAUST, Saudi Arabia)
