The International Conference on Robust Statistics (ICORS) has been an annual international conference since 2001. The aim of the conferences is to bring together researchers interested in robust statistics, data analysis and related areas. This includes theoretical and applied statisticians as well as data analysts from other fields, and leading experts as well as junior researchers and graduate students.
This workshop will inspire new primary research collaborations between those who have not had the opportunity to work closely with researchers developing and using computational methods to investigate biological questions. Likewise, those whose expertise is in modeling and computational methods will be able to establish connections with experimental or theoretical immunologists. The workshop should foster new collaborations by highlighting the benefits of interdisciplinary efforts in answering fundamental questions in immunology.

The focus of this workshop is to identify challenges for the control of malaria-leishmaniasis co-infections in South Asian and the African continent. The workshop will also model the complexity involved in the propagation of these co-infections in resource limited regions. The types of data needed to analyze co-infection models and associated uncertainty will be assessed. Experts will present field and quantitative challenges with persistence of co-infection cases of malaria and leishmaniasis.
This workshop series is concerned with analysis of neural signals from various sources, including EEG, fMRI, MEG, 2-Photon, and extracellular recordings. It aims to define important problems in neuronal data analysis and useful strategies for attacking them; foster communication between experimental neuroscientists and those trained in statisti- cal and computational methods encourage young researchers, including graduate students, to present their work; and expose young researchers to important challenges and oppor- tunities in this interdisciplinary domain, while providing a small meeting atmosphere to facilitate the interaction of young researchers with senior colleagues.
This workshop will (i) explore recent advances and open problems in statistical learning, data integration, and causal inference of biological systems; (ii) present biomedical applications to recent genome-wide perturbation data, such as RNA interference data, obtained, for example, from cancer cells or cells infected by pathogens; and (iii) facilitate meaningful interaction between biomedical and quantitative researchers.

In this workshop, we will begin working toward an integrated approach to the study of warfare under decentralized or only loosely controlled conditions, combining empirical data, evolutionary theory, and mathematical models. We envision developing working hypotheses to answer several key questions about between-group conflict in general, and the nature of ‘decentralized warfare’ in particular. These hypotheses will be informed by evolutionary theory using data from diverse conflict settings. Our hypotheses will be articulated in a framework amenable to formal modeling that will point the way toward a multi-level predictive understanding of warfare.
