2018 Spring Workshop: Information, Causal Models and Model Diagnostics


Event Dates:  Saturday  April 14 - Sunday  April 15
City: Pittsburgh   State: Pennsylvania   Country: USA
Event Type:  Workshops & Seminars
ASA Sponsored:  No
 

The fundamental concepts of information theory are being used for modeling and inference of problems across most disciplines, such as biology, ecology, economics, finance, physics, political sciences and statistics (for examples, see Fall 2014 conference celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Info-Metrics Institute). The objective of spring 2018 workshop is to study the interconnection between information, information processing, modeling (or model misspecification and diagnostics) and causal inference. In particular, it focuses on modeling and causal inference with an information- theoretic perspective.

This workshop will (i) provide a forum for the dissemination of new research in this area and will (ii) stimulate discussion among research from different disciplines. The topics of interest include both, the more philosophical and logical concepts of causal inference and modeling, and the more applied theory of inferring causality from the observed information. We welcome all topics within the intersection of info-metrics, modeling and causal inference, but we encourage new studies on information or information-theoretic inference in conjunction with causality, model specification (and misspecification). These topics may include, but are not limited to: - Causal Inference and Information - Probabilistic Causation and Information - Nonmonotonic Reasoning, Default Logic and Information-Theoretic Methods - Randomized Experiments and Causal Inference - Nonrandomized Experiments and Causal Inference - Modeling, Model Misspecification and Information - Causal Inference in Network Analysis - Causal Inference, Instrumental Variables and Information-Theoretic Methods - Granger Causality and Transfer Entropy Counterfactuals, Causality and Policy Analysis in Macroeconomics

The 21st century has seen a revolution in big data analytics. Though there have been methodological advances analyzing these rich data sets, risk assessment science has often lagged behind these advances.

To bring together the top minds within statistics and risk analysis communities and to cross pollinate ideas between practitioners in different areas, the American Statistical Association's Section on Risk Analysis is having a Symposium at the Department of Analytics at North Carolina State University May 10th and 11th, 2018. At this two day symposium, participants will be challenged by leaders on diverse topics such as toxico/environmental-, economic-, terrorism/defense-, climate-, and genetic disease-risk. These speakers will present on current challenges and stimulate discussion amongst participants. Additionally, focused breakout sessions will be scheduled allowing collaboration with other scientists.

To promote interest in risk analysis, student discounts will be given and a contributed poster session will allow all researchers to present their work while discussing challenges. Though this conference focuses on risk analysis, it should be of interest to any quantitative minded research interested in big data analytics.

This e-mail is a reminder to put a placeholder on your calendar for the week of the 2-6th July 2018, when the 6th International Statistical Ecology Conference will be held in St Andrews, Scotland.

After a successful Seattle edition earlier this year ISEC returns to Europe, in fact to ISEC's birthplace, dating back to 2008, to celebrate its 10th anniversary. It will be a landmark and we hope you will be able to join us in the celebration. We are working on putting together an interesting and stimulating program, with a range of plenary speaker including confirmed Tara Martin (UBC), Steve Ellner (Cornell), Steve Buckland (St A), Jennifer Hoeting (CSU) and Bill Link (USGS Patuxent).

As usual, we anticipate there will be workshops in the days before the conference, so you might want to start thinking about setting aside some days to attend those too.

At the moment there is not much more than a landing page at http://www.isec2018.org, but we hope to populate that web page with all the relevant information well in advance, so do check in every now and then. You can also follow us on Facebook at https://goo.gl/FC1Idh.

We look forward to see you in St Andrews in 2018, but in the meantime wish you all the best for the festive season and a very productive 2017, so that you can come and tell us all about it during ISEC 2018!

CBMS Conference on Elastic Functional and Shape Data Analysis


Event Dates:  Monday  July 16 - Friday  July 20
City: Columbus   State: Ohio   Country: USA
Event Type:  Workshops & Seminars
ASA Sponsored:  No
 

This Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) conference will feature an intensive lecture series by Prof. Anuj Srivastava, Professor of Statistics and a Distinguished Research Professor at Florida State University, on elastic methods for statistical analysis of functional and shape data, using tools from Riemannian geometry, Hilbert space methods, and computational science. The main focus of this conference is on geometric approaches, especially on using elastic Riemannian metrics with desired invariance properties, and square-root representations that simplify computations. These approaches allow joint registration and statistical analysis of functional data, and are termed elastic for that reason. The statistical goals include comparisons, summarization, clustering, modeling, and testing of functional and shape data objects.

Big Data Meets Survey Science (BigSurv18)


Event Dates:  Thursday  October 25 - Saturday  October 27
City: Barcelona   State: International   Country: Spain
Event Type:  Meeting
ASA Sponsored:  No
 

The European Survey Research Association (ESRA), will hold the first conference on Big Data Meets Survey Science (BigSurv18) on October 25-27, 2018 at the Research and Expertise Center in Survey Methodology (RECSM) at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain.

The theme of the conference is "Exploring New Statistical Frontiers at the Intersection of Survey Science and Big Data."

During the three-day event, attendees, panelists, and presenters will engage in a variety of discussions on the practical applications for employing Big Data and data science to improve the quality of statistics production. With focus on how researchers can combine perspectives from both expertly designed small data carefully measuring human behaviors, attitudes, and opinions to organic, electronic data capturing massive quantities of observations about our everyday lives in real-time; from generating summary statistics describing entire populations to leveraging fine-grained data informing the context of each observation; from the sampling of individuals within populations to considering the implications of "N=all;" and from applying the Total Survey Error paradigm to adopting a total statistical uncertainty framework that will be needed to encompass the new quality issues associated with Big Data.

The conference will produce an edited volume to be published by John Wiley & Sons and conference proceedings containing a collection of the best papers presented at the conference.
