  • Workshop - Workshop on Stochastic Weather Generators
    May 17, 2016 to May 20, 2016


    Vannes, from May 17th to May 20th

    Organization board: Pierre Ailliot, Denis Allard, Anne Cuzol, Ronan Fablet, William Kleiber, Etienne Mémin, Valérie Monbet, Philippe Naveau, Pierre Tandeo, Ying Sun

    How can we reliably predict climate-related risks? Stochastic weather generators give us this ability by simulating sequences of daily weather and climate consistent with specific aspects of climate variability and change. The simulated sequences of meteorological variables (rainfall, wind, temperature,...) are typically used as inputs into complex environmental and ecosystem models. They have a wide range of applications in hydrology, agriculture and environmental management.

    This workshop aims at bringing together a wide range of researchers, practitioners, and graduate students whose work is related to the stochastic modelling of meteorological variables and stochastic weather generators.

  • Conference - Bayesian statistics applied to archaeology
    May 24, 2016 to May 26, 2016

    Nantes, from May 24th to May 26th

    Organization board: Anne Philippe, Marie-­Anne Vibet, Philippe Lanos

    The topics of the workshop are Bayesian statistics and statistics applied to dating methods in archaeology, palaeoenvironment and geosciences.

    The sessions will be devoted to

    • the Chronological modelling (methodology, theory and applications to archaeology),

    • treatment of measurements within specific dating techniques (TL/OSL, ESR,...),

    • calibration curve building as reference for dating (geomagnetism, radiocarbon, age-depth curves,...).

    LOCATION : The conference will take place at the University of Nantes

    U.F.R. Sciences et Techniques, 2 Chemin de la Houssinière, 44300 Nantes

    There is no registration fee for this conference.

    All the lunches and the dinner which is proposed on May 25th will be taken in charge by the conference.

  • Workshop - Spatial Statistics and Image Analysis in Biology
    May 25, 2016 to May 27, 2016


    Rennes, from May 25th to May 27th

    Organization board: Bernard Delyon, Frédéric Lavancier, Charles Kervrann, Melen Leclerc

    The 11th French-Danish Workshop on Spatial Statistics and Image Analysis in Biology (SSIAB 11) will take place in May 25-27 2016 in Rennes (Brittany) at the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (Inria) Centre. It is jointly organized by the Serpico team of Inria, the Mathematics research institute IRMAR of the University of Rennes 1 and the Inra Institute of Genetics, Environment and Plant Protection (IGEPP).This workshop is devoted to spatial statistics and image analysis and their applications in biology (e.g. agriculture, epidemiology, ecology, health, environment).

    The first edition took place in Garchy (France, March 1996) and the last two editions took place in Aalborg (Denmark, May 2014) and Avignon (France, May 2012) respectively.

    Online registration is open until the 30th of April. The registration is free and includes access to talks and lunches.

  • 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.

How to come to Rennes

If you arrive in Paris either by plane or train, the simplest is to use the french high-speed train (TGV) to go to Rennes (2h15' from Montparnasse station, 3h from the Airport station).

For those landing at Charles-de-Gaulle airport, you may also use a connecting flight to Rennes.

How to reach your accomodation place

To go to the Adagio hotel from the railway station, take the subway (direction J.F. Kennedy) from station "Gares" to station "Saint-Anne", and then walk on "rue d'Antrain" street (see the map below) from "Place Saint-Anne" to the hotel.

To go to Résidence universitaire from the railway station, take the subway (direction J.F. Kennedy) from station "Gares" to station "République" [...] (see the map below).

How to come to the conference place

The conference will take place in building 32 B on Beaulieu Campus (campus map).

From the Adagio hotel: take bus n°31 (direction "Beaulieu Chimie") from the stop "Hôtel Dieu" to the stop "Beaulieu Cité U" . You then have to walk to building 32 B (see the map below).

From Résidence universitaire [...] (see the map below).

From the railway station, take the subway (direction J.F. Kennedy) and stop at "Republique". You can then take bus n°4 or n°40 Ex [...]. You then have to walk to building 32 B (see the map below).

Timetables, PDF maps of the bus lines are available on the Star website (only in french sorry). Some bus tickets will be provided the first day of the conference
