Workshop: "Safe, Anytime-Valid Inference (SAVI) and Game-theoretic Statistics"

May 30 - Jun 3
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 nonconclusive (say, p = 0.07) we cannot simply decide to gather a few more data points. While this practice is ubiquitous in…

Workshop: "Separating Integer Points in Polyhedra: Theory and Applications"

Jun 30 - Jul 1
Eurandom, Metaforum
Eindhoven, Netherlands
+ Google Map

Summary Integral polyhedra are one of the central objects of integer programming, as they allow to solve combinatorial optimization problems by means of linear programming. Finding outer descriptions of integral polyhedra associated with discrete problems, however, is a challenging task and in many cases such descriptions are not known or exponentially large. To circumvent these problems, a lot of effort has been spent to find descriptions in alternative spaces, leading to groundbreaking insights on practically relevant combinatorial optimization problems. Moreover, if no small formulation of such polyhedra exists, alternative…

Workshop: "Francesca Romana Nardi: A life in probability, building communities across Europe"

Jul 18 - Jul 22
University of Florence, Aula Magna, Via S. Gallo 10, Florence, Italy

Summary Francesca passed away on October 21, 2021, in the midst of a vibrant life. Colleagues from all over Italy and Europe will gather in Florence to talk about mathematical topics that were very close to her heart. Francesca made ground-breaking contributions to the area of interacting particle systems, in particular, to the theory and application of phase transitions, critical behaviour and metastability. She had a wonderful drive and enthusiasm, with which she inspired the people around her, junior and…

Workshop and Summerschool on Random Graphs (RandNET)

Aug 22 - Aug 30
MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

Summary On August 22-30 2022 the RandNET Summer School and Workshop on Random Graphs takes place in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The workshop will also function as the Kick-off event for the RandNET program. The main goal of this event is to facilitate new international collaborations between junior researchers. In the past two years it has been hard to set up these collaborations, so hopefully this event can make up for for a bit of that. To set up these collaborations, each afternoon…

Workshop YES: ""Optimal Transport, Statistics, Machine Learning and moving in between"

Sep 5 - Sep 9
Eurandom, Metaforum
Eindhoven, Netherlands
+ Google Map

Summary Theory and Computational Aspects In the last 30 years, the theory of Optimal Transport has emerged as a fertile field of inquiry, and a diverse tool for exploring applications within and beyond mathematics, in such diverse fields as economics, meteorology, geometry, fluid mechanics, design problems, theoretical chemistry and engineering. More recently, due to unexpected connections, as for instance with Data Sciences and Statistical Inference, theoretical and computational aspects of Optimal Transport regained substantial attention of both theorists and practitioners.…

Stochastic Models in Life Sciences

Sep 12 - Sep 14
Eurandom, Metaforum
Eindhoven, Netherlands
+ Google Map

Summary The aim of this three day bilateral conference is to discuss recent developments at the interface between probability theory and the life sciences. Probabilistic models are instrumental in the understanding and mathematical description of many biological processes. In this workshop we aim at highlighting three themes, corresponding to the three days of the conference. 1. Stochastic models of population dynamics 2. Quantitative developmental biology 3. Stochastic models in neuroscience These topics have been the subject of intense research in…

Workshop "Recent Trends in Spatial Stochastic Processes"

Oct 3 - Oct 7
Eurandom, Metaforum
Eindhoven, Netherlands
+ Google Map

Summary This workshop aims to bring together international researchers that study interacting random systems embedded in space, covering both theory and applications. The focus is on new developments in a wide range of associated research areas such as point-process theory, random graphs, percolation theory, random tessellations, first-passage percolation, random walks, interlacements, dynamical random networks and their related application areas, including wireless networks, interacting biological systems and mathematical physics. We provide an interesting and relaxed program, leaving plenty of time for…

Workshop: "Recent Developments in Stochastic Duality"

Dec 12 - Dec 16
Eurandom, Metaforum
Eindhoven, Netherlands
+ Google Map

Summary Duality is a key technique in Markov process theory, with applications in interacting particle systems, non-equilibrium statistical physics, and stochastic population dynamics. In recent years several new developments in the theory of duality have taken place, with applications in the above three areas. Examples include the Lie-algebraic approach to duality, the use of duality for integrable systems, random processes on random graphs, and population dynamics with seed-banks. In the workshop we aim to bring together experts in these areas,…
