The program aims at showing the role of modern statistical methods in complex data and serves to support interactions among mathematicians, statisticians, engineers and scientists working in the interface of experiment, computation, analysis and statistics. Two workshops with a few special lectures will focus on the development of new statistical methods in high dimensional data and complex networks with their interactions in scientific and social sciences. It seeks to foster activity and collaboration on all aspects of the effects of the high dimensional data analysis and social networks.
The spirit of the workshop has always been to focus on problems motivated by real life data and on solutions that make novel contributions to the subject. We foster exchange of ideas and discussions among participants by avoiding parallel sessions. Cross-fertilization of ideas from different statistical disciplines has always been our aim.
