Validation, Verification, and Uncertainty Quantification (VVUQ) in Earth and Space Sciences and Decision Making (American Geophysical Union NG013)


Event Dates:  Monday  December 11 - Friday  December 15
City: New Orleans   State: Louisiana   Country: USA
Event Type:  Meeting
ASA Sponsored:  No
 

VVUQ is an interdisciplinary research area that seeks to understand and quantify uncertainty flows through computational systems. Validation concerns how well computational outputs represent reality. Verification concerns how well mathematical formulas are represented in computational code. Uncertainty quantification is a set of tools and formalisms for quantifying sources and subsequent flows of uncertainty from all sources that affect the reliability of the output. In Earth and Space sciences this is especially important because outputs are often estimates used to test scientific hypotheses or make decisions that pose risk. This session invites talks from all areas of Earth and Space sciences that describe methods or conclusions from VVUQ studies of: complex predictive scientific or decision support models; inverse problems including geophysical retrievals; the use of data assimilation as a means of UQ, or the subject of it; and current approaches that informally address VVUQ.

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

6th International Statistical Ecology Conference


Event Dates:  Monday  July 02 - Friday  July 06
City: St Andrews   State: International   Country: UK
Event Type:  Meeting
ASA Sponsored:  No
 

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!

The conference welcomes contributions to practical aspects of data science, statistics and visualisation, and in particular those which are linking and integrating these subject areas. Presentations should thus be oriented towards a very wide scientific audience, and can cover topics such as machine learning and statistical learning, the visualisation and verbalization of data, big data infrastructures and analytics, interactive learning, advanced computing, and other important themes.

The 28th Annual Conference of the International Environmetrics Society (TIES 2018)


Event Dates:  Monday  July 16 - Saturday  July 21
City: Guanajuato   State: International   Country: Mexico
Event Type:  Meeting
ASA Sponsored:  No
 

The International Environmetrics Society (TIES) is a non-profit organization, founded in 1989 with the purpose of promoting the development and use of quantitative models and methods in solving environmental problems by scientists such as statisticians, mathematicians, engineers and computer scientists. To this end, the Society promotes the production of publications (Environmetrics Journal) and holds annual congresses. TIES annual congresses are a key element in achieving the objectives of the organization, as they seek 1. Highlighting and expanding existing methods in statistics, mathematics, and computing for the advancement of environmental studies. 2. Identifying the important needs and directions for future research. 3. Encouraging the participation, interaction and multidisciplinary collaboration of scientists in relation to environmental problems. The TIES congresses are well established and have involved many of the most eminent researchers working in the area. This 28th installment is taking place for the first time in Mexico and we expect it to be as successful as its predecessors.

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.

ISCB ASC 2018


Event Dates:  Sunday  August 26 - Thursday  August 30
City: Melbourne   State: International   Country: Australia
Event Type:  Meeting
ASA Sponsored:  No
 

The 2018 Joint International Society for Clinical Biostatistics (ISCB) and Australian Statistical Conference (ASC) will take place in Melbourne from 26-30th August 2018.

The aim of this conference is to bring together a broad range of statistical researchers across a variety of research areas to facilitate the international exchange of theory, methods and applications.

This, the 24th ASC and the 39th conference of the ISCB, promises to be a fascinating meeting as Big Data becomes commonplace, personalized medicine becomes palpable with rapidly advancing "omics" technologies, census-taking faces unprecedented pressures, environmental concerns place ecological research under increasing strain, and online social interaction becomes the norm. Have statistical methods kept pace with societal change? We already have a number of invited speakers confirmed for the event, including Chris Holmes, Louise Ryan, Susan Murphy and Thomas Lumley, with more to be announced soon!
