Winter Conference in Statistics 2017

Statistical analyses of big and high dimensional data – approached by Generalized Additive Models and Functional Data Analysis

Time  : 12-16 March, 2017

Venue: Hotel Fjällgården, Åre

The Winter Conference in Statistics is organized by the Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics jointly with the Department of Statistics, at Umeå University. It has been arranged by Umeå University since 1968. The conference consists of lectures, contributed sessions and a poster evening. 

The Winter Conference acts as an important platform and meeting place for statisticians in Scandinavia, where important topics are discussed. Through the years the Winter Conference has been the starting point for many new collaborations and research projects. The topic of the 2017 Winter Conference is “Statistical analyses of big and high dimensional data”, which is of wide interest in the research community.

We will have two main speakers at the conference, each giving four-six hours of lectures. The speakers will provide a comprehensive introduction to the subject together with highlights of recent advances in the research area. Therefore the conference is directed both to the experts in the area as well as scientists willing to learn new methodology.

Note! The previously scheduled  third speaker, Ana-Maria Staicu, had to cancel her attendance to the conference, and we will therefore have two main speakers. The schedule will be updated as soon as detailed information from the remaining speakers is available. 

There is a limited number of slots open for contributed oral presentations. Priority will be given to oral presentations related to the topic of the conference. Poster presentations are not restricted to the topic of this confererence. Submission deadline for oral and poster presentations is January 15. Notification decision for abstract submission will be given not later than January 29. You can submit the title and abstract of your contribution during the registration process.
