### Workshop YEP XVII: "Interacting Particle Systems"

Format The workshop will take place in the week Aug 30 - Sep 3, 2021. The event will be online. Summary The theory of Interacting Particle Systems focuses on the dynamics of systems consisting of a large or infinite number of entities, in which the mechanism of evolution is random and follows simple, local rules. The topic had its beginnings in the 70s and 80s, motivated by Statistical Physics and fundamental problems from Probability Theory. It has since developed into…

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

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)

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…
