14-16/10/2020: 11th International Francophone Conference on Surveys
Location: Université libre de Bruxelles, Campus du Solbosch (see map)
Summary: This international scientific meeting is organized since 1997, every two or three years, under the aegis of the French Statistical Society (SFdS). It brings together researchers and practitioners, from public institutes or private sector that carry out or use surveys. The purpose of the 2020 conference in Brussels is to review the state of practice and research in the various areas of survey and sampling methodology. Topics covered: the role of surveys in all data collection methods, as well as their applications in various disciplines such as political and social sciences, marketing, health and life sciences.
Summary: This is a day to ponder and remember the importance of Statistics.
Statistics is fundamental for the Scientific Research, the Economy; Statistics is central for Biology, Finance, Banking & Insurance, Environment; Statistics is vital for Healthcare and Medicine; for precision and personalized medicine; Statistics is important for the study of the Demographic dynamics, and the Society and Social networks.
“Look at the facts” is the motto of the European Statistics Day, and Statistics helps you to look in the proper way facts. Do not forget this fundamental right to use statistics to have a better life! (see website).
Organisers: Eurostat & National Statistical Institutes, French National Institute of Statistics INSEE, European Statistical Advisory Committee, European Central Bank, Federation of European National Statistical Societies, French Statistical Society.
Summary: The ECAS 2019 school on Network Analysis, Inference, and Modeling, organized by the French Statistical Society (SFdS), will
take place in Fréjus, France, on 6-11 October, 2019. It will present an introduction and recent advances in statistical network modeling, with a special emphasis on main concepts of network analysis, sparse inference, high-dimensional data and graphical models. It will address theoretical, methodological as well as applied and practical aspects of this field (see website).
10-13/09/2019: EuADS Public Symposium on Data for All: Data Science and the Human Factor
Summary: The power of algorithms to detect patterns in data and learn predictive models increases every day. How can we ensure our capability to understand and explain the behaviour of these models keeps pace? This multifaceted question will be considered from a range of perspectives including exploratory data mining, humancomputer interaction, psychology, law, and causal inference in this exciting and timely new Summer School. Details on the program and subsciption information can be found here.
Summary: A joint ECAS-ENBIS 1-day summer school is organized in Budapest on the 1st of September 2019, offering two courses:
- New Product Growth Models: Theory, Practice, and a Look to the Future by Mariangela Guidolin (University of Padua, Italy)
- Causality: A Half Day Workshop by Ron S. Kenett (KPA Ltd and the Samuel Neaman Institute, Technion, Israel)
It should be noted that this school (see website) is included as a pre-conference of
the international meeting ENBIS-19 (see website).
15-17/07/2019: ECAS2019: Statistical Analysis for Space-Time Data - 2nd announcement
Location: Lisbon, Portugal
Overview: Due to the proliferation of data sets that are both spatially and temporally indexed, spatio-temporal modelling has received an increasing attention in the last few years. Space-Time data are usually related to applied areas, such as environmental and health sciences, and their analyses focus, namely, on (see website):
1. reading, visualizing, and analysing spatial data, where observations can be identified with geographical locations;
2. generating hypotheses for further ecological or epidemiological study;
3. producing a smoothed map, identifying spatial and temporal trends;
4. Formulating policy decisions related to certain disease over space and time.
The European Courses in Advanced Statistics - ECAS Courses are intended to achieve postgraduate training in special areas of statistics for (especially 1st year) PhD students, researchers, teachers at universities, and professionals interested in the application of new statistical methods.
21-25/01/2019: Extraction and Knowledge Management (EGC)
Location: Metz, France
