Last week I travelled to Brisbane, Australia to attend two workshops, and to present our work on Clustering in Block Markov Chains at a conference called INFORMS-APS 2019. While the fourty-eight hours of travel were excruciatingly tiring (and don't get me started on the jetlag), attending these events was definitely worth it from an academic point of view.
After presenting my poster at Stochastic Networks 2018 on our manuscript Optimal Clustering Algorithms in Block Markov Chains, I received invitations to present at the machine learning seminars of the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in Amsterdam, as well as locally here at TU Delft. This post also provides you with our revised manuscript, which contains substantially extended results, as well asmy presentation.
This week I attended Stochastic Networks 2018, which took place at the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS) in Edinburgh, Scotland. I presented a poster at this conference, and I was awarded a small prize for it.
