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 to participate: A detailed statement of the scientific aims is available.

Mark Jerrum, Angus MacIntyre, and John Shawe-Taylor (Workshop Organisers)

Stop Press

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.

Registration form

A registration form is available on-line. Please register as soon as possible, as the number of participants is limited. Copies of the form are also available by Mail/Fax from the the ICMS.
