UF Statistics Annual Winter Workshop: Semi-Parametric & Non-Parametric Statistics in the Era of Big Data

January 19, 2018 – January 20, 2018

Gainesville, Florida, USA

In recent years, the availability of high-throughput data from genomic, finance, environmental, marketing (among other) applications has created an urgent need for methodology and tools for analyzing high-dimensional data. The explosion of data, due to advances in science and information technology, has left almost no field untouched. It is not uncommon to see datasets of sizes in terabytes and/or with millions of covariates. The field of non-parametric and semi- parametric statistics is quickly evolving and expanding to adapt to the challenges posed by big data. A variety of new techniques have been developed. Some of these techniques leverage the recent developments in the parallel and distributed computing, while others rely on appropriate sparsity assumptions to reduce the effective number of covariates. In addition, recent work has shown that many of these methodologies drastically reduce computation time while retaining the optimality properties of the standard non-parametric and semiparametric methods. Despite important breakthroughs in the last few years, a lot of unanswered questions remain. In an effort to address this, the proposed workshop will bring together individuals who have done path-breaking work in this field.

Joint International Society for Clinical Biostatistics and Australian Statistical Conference 2018

August 26, 2018 – August 30, 2018

Melbourne, Australia

The aim of this conference is to bring together a broad range of statistical researchers across a variety of research areas to facilitate the international exchange of theory, methods and applications.

Advances in Statistical Mechanics

August 27, 2018 – August 31, 2018

Marseille, France

Statistical mechanics is one of the most active fields of research in probability and mathematical physics. The meeting has the objectives of bringing together world experts in the field to assess the current state of research and to identify key questions for the new generations of researchers. The emphasis will be on fundamental issues of equilibrium and dynamics for classical and quantum mechanical systems, as well as on open problems of statistical mechanics related to probability, disordered systems, computer sciences, and biology.


Royal Statistical Society 2018 International Conference

September 3, 2018 – September 6, 2018

Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom

The RSS Conference is one of the largest statistical conferences held annually in Europe. Every year, over 600 statisticians and data scientists gather from all sectors and from over 30 countries to share information and network, attracted by a varied programme of talks and workshops. Submissions are welcome for contributed and rapid-fire talks (deadline 5 April) and poster presentations (deadline 30 June).

The Third Workshop on Higher-Order Asymptotics and Post-Selection Inference (WHOA-PSI)

September 8, 2018 – September 10, 2018

St. Louis, Missouri, USA

The Third WHOA-PSI will focus on emerging frontiers in post-selection inference, with particular emphasis on issues of accuracy, power and validity. More than 30 invited talks, and also Ph.D. student posters, will present recent advances in high-dimensional, selective, simultaneous, and Bayesian inference. Special attention is given to analytic and bootstrap-based refinements. New methodologies for model selection or change-point analysis may also be discussed, as well as relevant applications in need of post-selection inference procedures.

Workshop on Statistical Inference for Stochastic Process Models in Weather and Climate Science

September 10, 2018 – September 13, 2018

Leiden, Netherlands

The workshop aims at bringing together weather and climate scientists, on one hand, and statisticians, on the other, specialising in the use of mathematical and statistical techniques for inference in stochastic processes, random dynamical systems and time series modelling. Principal goals are exchange of ideas and information between the two groups on kinds of problems and challenges they face in their research, and techniques they employ for their solution.

2nd IMA Conference on Theoretical and Computational Discrete Mathematics

September 14, 2018 – September 15, 2018

Derby, England

The conference will showcase theoretical and computational advances in the general field of discrete mathematics. It is open to researchers working with mathematical structures and abstract constructs, and to those involved in the theory and practise of discrete algorithmic computing. The purpose of this event is to highlight progress in the field through the development of novel theories, methodologies and applications accordingly, and to inspire future work.


11. International Statistics Days

October 3, 2018 – October 7, 2018

Bodrum, Muğla, Turkey

The goal of the meeting is to bring together leading experts, researchers and graduate students sharing the latest research in theory and application of statistics. The conference will cover many topics in statistics. The meeting should create an opportunity for researchers to discuss the current developments in statistics with their peers and leading experts from the field, and to expand their network for future collaboration.

Big Data Meets Survey Science

October 25, 2018 – October 27, 2018

Barcelona, Spain

BigSurv18 will bring together international researchers, practitioners, and experts to address how promising technologies and methodologies for using massive datasets can improve, supplement, or replace data and estimates from complex surveys and censuses. This conference will provide you with an opportunity to connect with individuals from around the globe who work in survey, market, and opinion research, statistics, data science, and computer science and to show them how you support innovation and data quality.


Jerusalem Joint Statistical Event 2018: Symposium in Honor of Prof Yoav Benjamini's 70th Birthday and 10th Conference of the Eastern Mediterranean Region of the International Biometric Society (EMR-IBS)

December 17, 2018 – December 20, 2018

Jerusalem, Israel

Yoav Benjamini is one of the founding fathers of the false discovery rate (FDR) approach to multiple comparisons, which has emerged as a key tool in modern science. The symposium in his honor includes a strong lineup of invited speakers. We will again have a plenary talk in memory of Professor Marvin Zelen. Professor Zelen was a leader in the field of biostatistics and a strong supporter of the EMR, actively participating in the all the EMR conferences until the time of his passing.
