For those in Montreal a few of the Stan developers will giving talks at the NIPS workshops this week. On Saturday at 9 AM I’ll be talking about the theoretical foundations of Hamiltonian Monte Carlo at the Riemannian Geometry workshop (http://www.riemanniangeometry2014.eu) while Dan will be talking about Stan at the Software Engineering workshop (https://sites.google.com/site/software4ml/) Saturday afternoon at 4 PM. We’ll also have an interactive poster at the Probabilistic Programming workshop on Saturday (http://probabilistic-programming.org/wiki/NIPS*2014_Workshop) — it should be an…attractive presentation.

If you’re up early be sure to check out Matt Hoffman talking first thing on Saturday, at 8:30 AM in the Variational Inference workshop (https://sites.google.com/site/variationalworkshop/).

Dan and I will be around Thursday night and Friday if anyone wants to grab a drink or talk Stan.
