Honored Speaker
We will be honoring John Parker Burg for his ground-breaking contributions to
Maximum Entropy Spectral Estimation, and his prominent role in forming the
Edwin T. Jaynes International Center for Bayesian Methods and Maximum Entropy.

Invited Speakers

Thomas Cover Stanford University
David Draper University of California Santa Cruz
Christopher A. Fuchs Bell Labs, Murray Hill NJ USA
Ronald A. Howard Stanford University
Chris McKay NASA Ames Research Center
Mike West Duke University

For over 25 years the MaxEnt workshops have explored the use of Bayesian and Maximum Entropy methods in scientific and engineering applications. All aspects of probabilistic inference such as Techniques, Applications, and Foundations, are of interest. More recently, presentations of techniques involving Markov chain Monte Carlo and Model Selection have been growing. Application areas include, but are not limited to: Astronomy and Astrophysics, Geophysics, Medical Imaging, Source Separation, Particle Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Chemistry, Earth Science, Robotics. Foundational issues involving probability theory and information theory, and inference and inquiry are of keen interest.
