The conference will cover the latest methodological and applied developments in the areas of multiple comparisons and adaptive designs in clinical trials. There will be pre-conference workshops on January 4 and the main conference will be from January 5 to January 7.
The International Conference on Robust Statistics (ICORS) has been an annual international conference since 2001. The aim of the conferences is to bring together researchers interested in robust statistics, data analysis and related areas. This includes theoretical and applied statisticians as well as data analysts from other fields, and leading experts as well as junior researchers and graduate students.
This workshop will inspire new primary research collaborations between those who have not had the opportunity to work closely with researchers developing and using computational methods to investigate biological questions. Likewise, those whose expertise is in modeling and computational methods will be able to establish connections with experimental or theoretical immunologists. The workshop should foster new collaborations by highlighting the benefits of interdisciplinary efforts in answering fundamental questions in immunology.
The 14th Winter school on Mathematical Finance (January 26-28, 2015; Congrescentrum De Werelt, Lunteren, The Netherlands). Special topics are Nonlinear Pricing and Dependence and Model Risk. There will be two mini courses of 5 hours each by Damiano Brigo (Imperial College)
and Ludger Rüschendorf (University of Freiburg). Special invited lectures will be given by Christian Bender (Saarland University), Freddy Delbaen (ETH Zürich) and Matheus Grasselli (McMaster University).
Four short lectures complete the programme. Registration and further inf
Following the successful previous workshops, the conference will put together recent advances and trends in areas related to stochastic modeling, statistical inference and their applications. Contributions motivated by or addressing issues in engineering, industry and natural sciences are particularly welcomed, as several focused sessions are devoted to such topics. The workshop aims at facilitating the exchange of research ideas, stimulating collaboration and promoting young researchers.
Information theory and entropy methods are becoming powerful tools in biology, from the level of individual cells, to whole ecosystems, to experimental design, model-building, and the measurement of biodiversity. The aim of this investigative workshop is to synthesize different ways of applying these concepts to help systematize and unify work in biological systems.
This is a comprehensive two-week workshop on recent developments of Stein's method and its applications. We plan to bring together not only active researchers directly working in the area, but also those who apply Stein's method in their work in order to stimulate, strengthen and develop existing interactions between theory and practice.
The purpose of the Workshop is to stimulate research and, in an informal setting, to foster the interaction of researchers in the interface between statistics and matrix theory. The Workshop will provide a forum through which statisticians may be better informed of the latest developments and newest techniques in linear algebra and matrix theory and may exchange ideas with researchers from a wide variety of countries.
The focus of this workshop is to identify challenges for the control of malaria-leishmaniasis co-infections in South Asian and the African continent. The workshop will also model the complexity involved in the propagation of these co-infections in resource limited regions. The types of data needed to analyze co-infection models and associated uncertainty will be assessed. Experts will present field and quantitative challenges with persistence of co-infection cases of malaria and leishmaniasis.
This workshop will (i) explore recent advances and open problems in statistical learning, data integration, and causal inference of biological systems; (ii) present biomedical applications to recent genome-wide perturbation data, such as RNA interference data, obtained, for example, from cancer cells or cells infected by pathogens; and (iii) facilitate meaningful interaction between biomedical and quantitative researchers.
Den norsk Aktuarforening invites you to attend the Colloquium of the International Actuarial Association to be held in Oslo, Norway, from the 7th to the 10th of June 2015. The colloquium is a
joint collaboration of the two IAA sections Pension Benefits and Social Security (PBSS) and Life Insurance (LIFE).
BNP10 will feature four special invited lectures, eight invited sessions, contributed talks and poster sessions.

We are pleased to announce that the 5th IMS-China International Conference on Statistics and Probability 2013 will be held in Kunming, China in 1-4 July 2015. Its scientific program will cover a wide range of topics in probability, statistics and their related areas. The conference will also provides an excellent forum for scientific exchanges and for forging new research collaborations.
JSM (the Joint Statistical Meetings) is the largest gathering of statisticians held in North America. Attended by more than 6,000 people, meeting activities include oral presentations, panel sessions, poster presentations, continuing education courses, an exhibit hall (with state-of-the-art statistical products and opportunities), career placement services, society and section business meetings, committee meetings, social activities and networking opportunities.
The International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) is the premier international congress in the field of applied mathematics held every four years under the auspices of the International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. From August 10 to 14, 2015, mathematicians from around the world will gather in Beijing, China for the 8th ICIAM to be held at China National Convention Center inside the Beijing Olympic Green.
