Statistical genomics and genetics have been growing remarkably fast and covering more and more topics in both fields, and nowadays they are essential parts of modern biological and medical researches. The goal of the conference is to provide an opportunity for statisticians and bioinformatists, as well as biologists, and graduate students to generate and share ideas for new creative research in both statistics and genomics. The keynote speakers are Dr. Xihong Lin, Dr. Kathryn Roeder, and Dr. John Storey.
To keep up in today's competitive marketplace, enterprise business entities must be able to constantly transform and improve their business. In order to improve, enterprise business entities have started to integrate sophisticated business analytics and big data, internal and external, in their internal operational processes for sales, marketing, finance, management, procurement, etc. Statistical methodology can play a powerful role in developing such an effective business transformation. In this conference, we explore how businesses increase efficiency, support decision-making under uncertainty, improve business operations and ultimately transform their business by using statistics.

* to focus on problems motivated by real life data and on solutions that make novel contributions to the subject.
* to encourage interaction as there are no parallel sessions.
* to welcome both junior and senior statisticians.

Seminars on Stability Problems for Stochastic Models have a long tradition. They were founded by Vladimir Zolotarev in the 1970’s. The seminars were attended by leading probabilists from all over the world. The Seminars traditionally aim at bringing together people from Eastern and Western parts of Europe to share their expertise, new results, exchange the ideas and discuss open problems.
