Workshop "Road Traffic Flow: Analysis, Optimization and Control"

Oct 21 - Oct 22
MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

Summary Road Traffic Flow - Analysis, Optimization and Control Transportation plays a pivotal role in a society's economic and social welfare. Overly congested road traffic networks account for several billions of euros in cost, in the Netherlands alone. Since congestion itself can have many different causes (e.g., too much traffic, accidents, and bad network design), it is an inherently interesting and important topic for multiple scientific research areas, ranging from social sciences to civil engineering, mathematics and physics. Each area…

Workshop: "Safe, Anytime-Valid Inference" (SAVI)

Dec 13 - Dec 17
MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

Summary A large fraction of published research in top journals in applied sciences such as medicine and psychology has been claimed as irreproducable. In light of this 'replicability crisis', traditional methods for hypothesis testing, most notably those based on p-values, have come under intense scrutiny. One central problem is the following: if our test result is promising but non-conclusive (say, p = 0.07) we cannot simply decide to gather a few more data points. While this practice is ubiquitous in…

Protected: Workshop "Graph Limits, Non-Parametric Models and Estimation"

Summary Graph limits and graphons emerged as a subfield of graph theory about 15 years ago, and immediately spurred wide interest due to the connections with statistical physics, extremal combinatorics, and non-parametric statistical analysis on networks. While inspired by applications to real-world networks such as the World-Wide Web, the original theory did not apply to many of these networks, since the theory dealt with dense graphs while real-world networks tend to be sparser. Several ideas for sparse graph limits, and…
