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.

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.
HJ2016: Hamilton-Jacobi Equations: new trends and applications
The objective of the HJ2016 conference is to gather researchers working in the theory of Hamilton-Jacobi equations and related topics. This conference is organized by the ANR project HJnet "Hamilton-Jacobi equations on heterogeneous structures and networks". The topics discussed include:
Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations
Theory of viscosity solutions for Hamilton-Jacobi equations
Optimal control and Hamilton-Jacobi equations on networks
Mean Field Games
Homogenization and singular perturbation problems
Applications to traffic
The registration will open on Friday, March 11th 2016 and close on Monday, April 25th. Registration is mandatory for all participants.

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.
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.
Dating back to Kolmogorov's construction of probabilistic diffusions from solutions of partial differential equations in the early 30's and the joint development of potential theory and Markov process in the early 50's, Analysis and Probability theory have never ceased their fruitful interactions, feeded by practical problems from physics, engineering, finance and others. The inaugural conference of the semester Perspectives in Analysis and Probability will provide a panorama of this domain of interaction, by gathering top international researchers at the interface of Analysis, Probability theory and Partial Differential Equations.
