state of the art in sampling & clustering [workshop]

Posted in Books, pictures, Statistics, Travel, University life with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2020 by xi'an

Next month, I am taking part in a workshop on sampling & clustering at the Max-Planck-Institut für Physik in Garching, Germany (near München). By giving a three hour introduction to ABC, as I did three years ago in Autrans. Being there and talking with local researchers if the sanitary conditions allow. From my office otherwise. Other speakers include Michael Betancourt on HMC and Johannes Buchner on nested sampling. The remote participation to this MPI workshop is both open and free, but participants must register before 18 September, namely tomorrow.

The Hausdorff Centre for Mathematics will hold a week on recent advances in MCMC in Bonn, Germany, March 30 – April 3, 2020. Preceded by two days of tutorials. (“These tutorials will introduce basic MCMC methods and mathematical tools for studying the convergence to the invariant measure.”) There is travel support available, but the application deadline is quite close, as of 30 September.

Note that, in a Spring of German conference, the SIAM Conference on Uncertainty Quantification will take place in Munich (Garching) the week before, on March 24-27. With at least one likelihood-free session. Not to mention the ABC in Grenoble workshop in France, on 19-20 March. (Although these places are not exactly nearby!)

MaxEnt 2019 [last call]

For those who definitely do not want to attend O’Bayes 2019 in Warwick,  the Max Ent 2019 conference is taking place at the Max Planck Institute for plasma physics in Garching, near Münich, (south) Germany at the same time. Registration is still open at a reduced rate and it is yet not too late to submit an abstract. A few hours left. (While it is still possible to submit a poster for O’Bayes 2019 and to register.)
