The Institute consists of a summer school in spatial and spatio-temporal statistics, a workshop in nonstationary spatial covariance modeling, and a workshop in multivariate spatial methods. The instructors are among the leading researchers in the field.

The summer school will cover a range of topics, with theoretical and applied lectures as well as computer labs. The nonstationary spatial covariance workshop will compare different methods on common data sets provided in advance. The multivariate workshop will present the latest developments.
