The "LMS Invited Lecture Series and CRISM Summer School on Computational Statistics" will be held at the University of Warwick from the 9th-13th July 2018. The lecture series and summer school is aimed at both those interested in learning more about the area, and established researchers in areas of compuational statistics. The initial lectures will focus on foundational aspects of simulation (given by Art Owen (Stanford)), and this will be followed by a series of lectures on four more specialist topics going from the fundamentals of the specialist topic to state-of-the-art (lectured by Art Owen (Stanford), Nicolas Chopin (ENSAE), Mark Huber (Claremont-McKenna) and Jeff Rosenthal (Toronto)).
The lecture series and summer school will be held over 5 full days, comprising 5 short courses by 4 distinguished researchers, 20 hours of lectures, two wine receptions, a poster session and a conference dinner. It is timed to follow on from the 2018 ISBA World Meeting, Edinburgh UK, 24th-29th June 2018 and MCQMC Rennes France, 1st-6th July 2018, and we hope to get a critical mass of both researchers in computational statistics, and those keen to learn more and apply the techniques. Some funding is available to young researchers to cover registration fees (aimed at those within 5 years of submitting their PhD).
