Questions about IP: mailing list and stackoverflow

The SIPTA community wants to promote the use of the popular Stack Exchange (SE) Question & Answer sites to answer questions about IP in general and to diffuse information about IP in general. Since there is no specific imprecise probability tag on these sites, we encourage anyone having a question about IP to

  1. Post the question on an appropriate SE site, among which are:
    • Mathematics: questions related to the mathematics of IP
    • Cross Validated: questions related to statistics, stochastic processes, ...
    • Computer science: questions related to algorithms, complexity, ...
    • Math Overflow: questions related to the more advanced mathematical aspects IP
    • Signal processing: questions related to (Kalman, Kernel) filters and their extensions, ...
  2. Post a link to the question to the mailing list, to make the community aware of it.

Please encourage others, such as junior researchers and students, to ask questions on these forums.
