Congrats on NIPS outstanding paper award to Jeff Bilmes and Rishabh Iyer

Congrats to ISTC-PC and UW faculty member Jeff Bilmes and his student Rishabh Iyer for winning an outstanding paper award at the Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) conference in December, 2013 for the paper “Submodular Optimization with Submodular Cover and Submodular Knapsack Constraints”. NIPS is one of the world’s top conferences in this field and only a very small percentage of papers receive this honor. Well done Jeff and Rishabh!
