Workshop on the Vapnik-Chervonenkis Dimension
Edinburgh, 9th - 13th September 1996
The International Centre
for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS)
will hold a Workshop on the Vapnik-Chervonenkis Dimension
in the week 9th--13th September 1996.
The workshop will take place at the ICMS's headquarters at 14 India Street,
Edinburgh, the birthplace of James Clerk Maxwell, which has recently
been adapted to support meetings with about 50 participants.
We (the organisers or the workshop)
envisage a multidisciplinary meeting
covering the topic in all its aspects:
probability and statistics, computational learning theory,
geometry, and applications in computer science.
The following invited speakers have agreed

- Jiri Matousek, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic;
Mark Jerrum, Angus MacIntyre, and John Shawe-Taylor (Workshop
It seems likely that there will be an opportunity for speakers
to publish articles related to their presentations
in a special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics.
A programme is available; also
a list of abstracts (now complete!)
for the talks.
A registration form is available on-line.
Please register as soon as possible, as the number of participants is
