WOGAS3 - Workshop on Geometric and Algebraic Statistics 3 - Apr 5-7 2011
This workshop will highlight recent developments and research opportunities in topics related to algebraic and geometric statistics. It will be hosted by the Centre for Research in Statistical Methodology (CRiSM) at the University of Warwick. As with its predecessors (see WOGAS and WOGAS2), the overall aim is to bring together people interested in either or both of Geometric and Algebraic Statistics to share enthusiasms and, potentially, develop synergies.
Many promising applications of different types of geometry to statistics - differential, algebraic, convex, affine, … - being emergent, rather than fully formed, the idea is to have a relatively informal event with plenty of opportunity for interaction. In particular, we plan to have a number of smaller working groups focussing on pre-identified topics of mutual interest.
Confirmed participants include: Shun-ichi Amari, Phil Dawid, Mark Girolami, Hiroyuki Nakahara, Giovanni Pistone and Eva Riccomagno.
Again, while still offering a poster format, we hope to have a higher proportion of talks from career-young researchers (PhD students, post-docs and young academics) - for whom a number of bursaries are available - providing access to, and feedback from, many of the leading figures in the field.
The location of WOGAS3 is in Complexity, Zeeman (Maths/Stats) Building, University of Warwick
