This one-day workshop, associated with the 2010 Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) conference, took place on Friday December 10, 2010 in Whistler, British Columbia. The workshop focussed on the practical application of modern Monte Carlo techniques to problems of interest in machine learning and beyond. We had six invited talks, with speakers focusing on the real-world aspects of performing inference with Monte Carlo. We also had a wide range of contributed abstracts, which were presented in the poster session.
The registration was dealt with on the NIPS website.
