Alekh, John, Ofer, and I are organizing a workshop at NIPS this year on learning in parallel and distributed environments. The general interest level in parallel learning seems to be growing rapidly, so I expect quite a bit of attendance. Please join us if you are parallel-interested.

And, if you are working in the area of parallel learning, please consider submitting an abstract due Oct. 17 for presentation at the workshop.

Hello,

I’m interested in participating in the tutorials but I’m unable to attend.

Will it be possible to participate in the tutorials online?

It depends on whether or not NIPS works with videolectures. I expect the answer is “yes”.
