  • Workshop - Statistical methods for dynamical stochastic models - DYNSTOCH 2016
    Jun 8, 2016 to Jun 10, 2016

    Rennes, from June 8th to June 10th

    Organization board: Michael Sorensen, Dominique Dehay, Ronan Le Guével

    Scientific board: Reinhard Höpfner, Adeline Leclercq Samson, Michael Sorensen, Masayuki Uchida, Dominique Dehay

    The DYNSTOCH network is an international network of researchers on various topics in the inference for stochastic processes. The aim is to bring major contributions to this thema using the tools of modern probability theory including stochastic calculous as well as intensive scientific computing methods.

    The focus is on estimation, testing and prediction methods for complex dynamic models such as e.g. diffusions, branching processes ... The problems of interest are for example in modeling and data analysis in finance, turbulence, neuroscience, telecommunication networks, hydrology, and other complex technological systems.

    The DYNSTOCH 2016 workshop will be held from Wednesday, June 8th to Friday, June 10th at University Rennes 2 (Campus Villejean, Rennes, France)

    The deadline for submission of contributions is May 8th, and the deadline for registration is May 8th.

  • Conference - 31st International Workshop on Statistical Modelling
    Jul 4, 2016 to Jul 8, 2016

    Rennes, from July 4th to July 8th

    Organization board: Pierrette Chagneau, Jean-François Dupuy, Martine Fixot, Julie Josse, Nathalie Krell, James Ledoux, Laurent Rouvière, Myriam Vimond

    Welcome to the webpage of the 31st International Workshop on Statistical Modelling (IWSM).

    The 31st edition of the IWSM will be held in Rennes (France) from 4 to 8 July 2016, hosted by the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées.

    IWSM is one of the major activities of the Statistical Modelling Society, founded with the purpose of promoting and encouraging statistical modelling in its widest sense, involving both academic and professional statisticians and data analysts. Since its first edition, the spirit of the workshop has always been to focus on problems motivated by real life data and on solutions that make novel contributions to the subject.

    The atmosphere of the workshop is friendly and supportive, with no parallel sessions, with the aim of stimulating the exchange of ideas and experiences related to statistical modelling. As a sign of positive feedback the IWSMs report many returning participants.

    Papers focusing on applications with important substantive implications as well as methodological issues are welcome. Submissions by students and young researchers are particularly encouraged.

    New information about the 31st IWSM will be continuously added on this website. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us.

lebesgue_money.png The Lebesgue Center offers 10,000€ scholarships to outstanding mathematics students applying for a master programme in mathematics, for a fist year of Master (M1) or for a second year of Master (M2), in Rennes, Nantes, Angers, Brest or Vannes.


The stipend is 10,000 euros per year.

The M1 scholarships are open to all students who have completed a bachelor's degree in mathematics (or related) at the end of the academic year 2015-2016. The applicants for the Lebesgue M1 scholarship should certify a B1 level of proficiency of the French language.
A student applying for the first year of a master (M1) will be allowed to apply for another scholarship for the second year (M2).

The M2 scholarships are open to all students who have completed the first year of a master in mathematics (or related) at the end of the academic year 2015-2016.
The courses of the second year of Master (M2) may be taught in English.

The application of the Lebesgue scholarship is independent from the application to Masters programmes, whom modalities are indicated in the dedicated websites.


The application for the lebesgue Master Scholarship is open until March 15th, 2016.
The results of the selection process will be edited in April 2016.

- One or more letters of recommendation.

Applicants must submit the application only when it is complete. Only electronic submission using the online form will be considered.


The selection will be carried out by the Lebesgue Scientific Committee and the heads of the Masters programmes. It will be based on the academic quality of the applicant.
