A  one-day workshop is organised at Telecom Sudparis, Évry, on 22 November by R. Douc, F. Portier and F. Roueff. On the “hot topics” concerned with probabilistic methods in computational statistics. The workshop is funded by the project “Big-Pomm”, which strengthens the links between LTCI (Telecom Paristech) and SAMOVAR (Telecom Sudparis) around research projects implying partially observed Markov models. The participation to the workshop is free but registration is required for having access to the lunch buffet (40 participants max). (Évry is located 20km south of Paris, with trains on the RER C line.)
