zurück in Wien
Back in Vienna after a little bit more than a year! The opportunity was a working meeting on a CRC Handbook of mixture analysis, Sylvia Früwirth-Schnatter, Gilles Celeux and myself are editing together, along with about twenty authors, half of which also came to Vienna for the weekend. Great opportunity to all work together, towards a more coherent and comprehensive volume, as well as to enjoy the earliest stages of the Viennese winter. Very mild winter so far. I also gave a seminar Friday morning, thinking until I saw the attached poster that I was going to speak on mixtures for testing..! Except for a few seconds of uncertainty on the second version of the random forest approach, I still managed to survive the switch (in a fabulous seminar room, overlooking the Prater…) The two days meeting was very rewarding, with major changes in the contents and the goals of many chapters, including those I am contributing to.
