  • The Royal Statistical Society (JRSS series B 49(3) 223-265 1987) had a meeting on MDL and MML:
    • MDL: J. Rissanen, Stochastic Complexity, JRSS B 49(3) 223-239 1987.
    • MML: C. S. Wallace and P. R. Freeman, Estimation and Inference by Compact Coding, JRSS B 49(3) 240-252 1987 [paper].
    • Discussion of the two papers above: JRSS B 49(3) 253-265.
