StatScale ECR Researcher's Meeting

14th - 16th December

StatScale Early Career Researchers Meeting 

Recent Developments in Statistical Scalability

and Streaming Data 

14-16 Dec 2022, Brighton, UK 

 

With an ever-growing amount of information flowing in, one of the current challenges of statistics is to deal with large, complex, and non-standard datasets and data streams. Traditional procedures are often unable to deal with such a task, posing the need for modern, more efficient techniques. Fortunately, in the previous decade, many researchers answered the call, introducing novel, scalable methodologies. 

 

On this basis, we would like to give an opportunity for Early Career Researchers (ECR) working around statistical scalability to meet in person. We hope the event will be an occasion for such researchers to discuss the recent developments in statistical scalability and streaming data, exchange new ideas, and unveil new challenges.  

The StatScale ECR Meeting aims to ease the discussion of non-standard and computationally challenging scenarios around and not limited to: 

  • Changepoint detection 

  • High-dimensional statistics 

  • Shape constrained inference 

  • Streaming data and real-time analysis 

  • Functional data analysis 

 
Every invited speaker will have the opportunity to give a 30-minute talk about a topic of their choice. The list of the speakers and the full programme will be made available closer to the time. 

The meeting is an in-person event. We are considering making the various talks accessible to an online audience (as a blended approach). 

If you have not received an invitation, and are interested in attending the event in person as a guest, please get in touch with us at statscale@lancaster.ac.uk 

 

Location  

The workshop will be held in Brighton at The Old Ship Hotel. This is a location which is near to the seafront and all major attractions in the area. It is next to The Lanes, which are renowned for their old-world charm and are perfect for a stroll and browse.
