The Schools of Mathematics and of Informatics at The University of
Edinburgh are holding a research workshop to mark the 250th
anniversary of the death of Thomas Bayes, a former student of the
University of Edinburgh. The workshop will run from early afternoon
on Monday 5th to late morning on Wednesday 7th September. The general
theme of the workshop is that of what has come to be known as Bayesian
David Dunson (Duke University, USA) will be giving a keynote lecture.
There are two positions available at level B or C (lecturer or senior lecturer level) in the Research School of Computer Science at the ANU

There is a two year post-doctoral position available at the University
of Sheffield, UK to work with Magnus Rattray and Neil Lawrence on
machine learning methods applied to computational biology data. The
project is part of a European-wide consortium with collaborators in
Germany, Finland and the Netherlands. The successful applicant will
join an active group based in a new building (opened November 2010) as
part of the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience.

Proposals are invited for the Tutorial Program of the 13th Conference
of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational
Linguistics (EACL 2012), to be held in Avignon, France, from April 23
to April 27, 2012. The selected tutorials will be given on the Monday
and Tuesday preceding the main conference (April 23 and 24).
EACL 2012 seeks proposals for tutorials in all areas of computational
linguistics, broadly conceived to include disciplines such as
linguistics (including phycholinguistics and other subfields), speech,
The Cyclotron Research Centre (CRC) at the University of Liège is recruiting a PhD student with a background in engineering, biomedical engineering or computer sciences for a project on multivariate data-driven diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease (see project description here)
We are pleased to announce the launch of the PASCAL2 "Machine Learning for Multimodal Interaction" (MLMI) Thematic Programme. The objective of this theme is to explore the opportunities and challenges entailed by adapting conventional machine learning techniques to multimodal interactive systems and advanced man-machine interfaces. In particular, it will focus on the VideoLectures.NET repository and its need for advanced tools to give users the most appropriate material in a staged and accessible fashion.
We are running the PASCAL Visual Object Classes Recognition Challenge
again this year. As in 2010 there are 20 object classes for the main
competitions. Participants can recognize any or all of the classes,
and there are classification, detection and pixel-wise segmentation
competitions. This year the action classification taster competition
has a new "other" category, and there is also a taster competition on
person layout (detecting head, hands, feet). There is also an
associated large scale visual recognition taster competition organized
