Attention conservation notice: Intellectuals gathering in Berkeley to argue about "knowledge" and "revolution".
This looks like fun, and if I didn't have conflicting obligations I'd definitely be there.
On the Campus of the University of California, Berkeley
We are experiencing a revolution in the capacity to quickly collect and transport large amounts of data. Not only has this revolution changed the means by which we store and access this data, but has also caused a fundamental transformation in the methods and algorithms that we use to extract knowledge from data. In scientific fields as diverse as climatology, medical science, astrophysics, particle physics, computer vision, and computational finance, massive streaming data sets have sparked innovation in methodologies for knowledge discovery in data streams. Cutting-edge methodology for streaming data has come from a number of diverse directions, from on-line learning, randomized linear algebra and approximate methods, to distributed optimization methodology for cloud computing, to multi-class classification problems in the presence of noisy and spurious data.
This conference will bring together researchers from applied mathematics and several diverse scientific fields to discuss the current state of the art and open research questions in streaming data and real-time machine learning. The conference will be domain driven, with talks focusing on well-defined areas of application and describing the techniques and algorithms necessary to address the current and future challenges in the field.
Sessions will be accessible to a broad audience and will have a single track format with additional rooms for breakout sessions and posters. There will be no formal conference proceedings, but conference applicants are encouraged to submit an abstract and present a talk and/or poster.
See the conference page for submission details, schedules, etc.

Attention conservation notice: Only of interest if you (1) like hearing people talk about statistics and machine learning, and (2) will be in Pittsburgh next week.
I have been remiss about advertising upcoming talks.
As always, the talks are free and open to the public.
(You see why I have trouble keeping up with these.)
