CANCELLED: Graph Limits

Apr 6 - Apr 9
MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

CANCELLED due to Corona Virus Summary The workshop will address both the basic theory and the applications of graph limits, focusing on graphons and graphexes, as well as various applications. In the last few years several beautiful and exciting developments have taken place in this area. It is therefore time to bring together researchers from different fields, including probability theory, combinatorics, statistics and algorithmics. The workshop will run from Monday morning 09.00 am till Thursday afternoon 17.00 pm Sponsors  …

CANCELLED: Workshop YEP XVII: "Interacting Particle Systems"

May 11 - May 15
MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

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 a fruitful source of interesting mathematical questions and a very successful framework to model emerging collective complex behavior for systems…

CANCELLED: Safe, Anytime-Valid Inference (SAVI)

May 25 - May 29
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…
