        • EuADS
        • 10-13/09/2019: EuADS Public Symposium on Data for All: Data Science and the Human Factor
        • Location: Luxembourg-Kirchberg
        • 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.

        • ECAS2019
        • 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.
        • Organizers: Portuguese Statistical Society (SPE) and the Spanish Society of Statistics and Operational Research (SEIO)
