- Gitta Kutyniok (TU Berlin): Anisotropic Structures and Sparsity-based Regularization
- Mario Figueiredo (Lisbon): Learning with Strongly Correlated Variables: Ordered Weighted ℓ1 Regularization
Time and Place. Friday 22 April 2016, 14:00–17:00, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Main Building Room 2.094, Unter den Linden 6, 10099 Berlin

The third SIAM Conference on Uncertainty Quantification (SIAM UQ16) will take place at the SwissTech Convention Center in Lausanne, Switzerland, this week, 5–8 April 2016.
As part of this conference, Mark Girolami and I will organise a mini-symposium on “Over-confidence in numerical predictions: challenges and solutions” (MS138 and MS153), which will feature a wide range of perspectives, including Bayesian and frequentist (in)consistency, probabilistic numerics, and application fields.
