Description

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Statistical Modeling for Large Complex Time Dependent Systems" workshop in Banff from October 11 to October 16, 2020.


The Banff International Research Station will host the "Statistical Modeling for Large Complex Time Dependent Systems" workshop in the year 2020. This workshop will focus on recent developments and open problems involving the techniques of dimension reduction, dynamic networks, multi-scale modeling for nonlinear processes and count processes, and machine learning, with applications to fields such as climatology, disease mapping, social media behavior, ecology, measurement of small populations, and neuroscience.

This congress of diverse intellects, which includes both world-renowned scholars and junior researchers, and the stimulating forum of the Banff environment are expected to foster new collaborations and the spread of knowledge. Participants will be chosen from many countries, different demographic profiles, and diverse backgrounds in academia and government. The exposure to colleagues with similar but challenging scientific problems will broaden the research horizon of each visitor, and the effort to find consensus on promising techniques - as well as those vital challenges that merit future study - should prove valuable to the broader public.


The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
