Bell Labs/IISc Workshop on
Machine Learning, Security and Privacy


 
Saturday February 25, 2012
Department of Computer Science and Automation
Indian Institute of Science


The Machine Learning Special Interest Group in the CSA Department at IISc and Bell Labs India are organizing a half-day workshop on Saturday, 25th February, 2012. The workshop will cover topics around machine learning, security and privacy. The goal is to present on-going research and exploratory topics, leading to possible collaborations between BL researchers and IISc faculty and students.

The primary target audience of the workshop is research students at IISc. We hope to have an interactive session, with a free exchange of ideas, views and comments. So please do come and join us! Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis; to register, send an email to (priyanka@csa, harikrishna@csa) (both addresses end in csa.iisc.ernet.in) with your name, department and degree program (PhD/MSc).
