Preseren Award of U of Ljubljana, 2012

In first week of December U of Ljubljana celebrates traditional "Week of University" (Why?) during which numerous invited lectures, presentations and award ceremonies are organized.

This year, I was awarded the faculty award for best students and Preseren Award of U of Ljubljana for thesis "A Matrix Factorization Approach for Inference of Prediction Models from Heterogeneous Data Sources" (slo: univerzitetna Prešernova nagrada za delo "Pristop matri?ne faktorizacije za gradnjo napovednih modelov iz heterogenih podatkovnih virov"). I would like to thank my supervisor and mentor Prof. dr. Blaž Zupan for encouragement and advice he provides throughout my time as his student. I am lucky to have a supervisor who cares so much about my work and responds to my questions promptly. I could not have won the award without his support and mentoring.
