  • 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.

    Scientific board: Claudio Arezzo, Olivier Biquard, Paul Gauduchon, Michael Singer

    Kähler geometry is a very active research field, at the crossroads between algebraic and Riemannian geometry. Important breakthrough, that lead to solve the Yau-Tian-Donaldson conjecture in the Fano case, have been achieved recently. A spring school involving mini-lectures and talks around this thread of new ideas in Kähler geometry is organized at Nantes University. The goal of the school is to develop certain technical skills, useful to address a variety of important questions in algebraic geometry and global analysis on manifolds, aimed for PhD students and young researchers. Geometric flows, like the Kähler-Ricci flow for instance, and the associated quantification by the Donaldson dynamical system, will be among the essential tools dealt with during the school.

  • Conference - Teichmüller Theory in Higher Dimension and Mirror Symmetry
    Apr 24, 2017 to Apr 28, 2017


    Angers, from April 24th to April 28th

    Organization board: Frédéric Mangolte, Etienne Mann, Laurent Meersseman

    Teichmüller theory and mirror symmetry are very active domains. In this conference, we propose two series of lectures by two world leaders :

    • Misha Verbitsky on Teichmüller theory
    • Hirochi Iritani on mirror symmetry

    Both will gave each morning an one hour lecture followed in the afternoon by more advanced results by internationnal mathematicians. The goal of this conference is to bring together matematicians from different backgrounds and also to give an overview of the subjetcs to young PhD and post-doc students.

  • Conference - Infinite measure Dynamics
    Jun 6, 2017 to Jun 9, 2017


    Brest, from June 6th to June 9th

    Organization board: Yves Coudène, François Maucourant, Françoise Pène, Barbara Schapira, Samuel Tapie

    Scientific board: Jon Aaronson, Jean-Pierre Conze, Gilles Courtois, Domokos Szasz

    This conference will focus on dynamical systems which naturally preserve a measure with infinite mass. These systems appear in a geometric or probabilistic context, or may come from natural sciences. When the invariant measure has infinite mass, recurrence is no longer automatic, usual mixing properties disappear and new asymptotical properties (such as rationnal ergodicity) may occur. Such systems may develop various and subtil behaviours, which could not exists in finite measure dynamics.

    This conference will gather international experts on this topic, and will allow young researcher to have an easy access to the large recent developpment on such questions.

Summer schools - Normal forms and large time behavior for nonlinear PDE

Place and period

This summer school took place at the Faculté des Sciences et Techniques, Université de Nantes, from June, 22nd to July, 3rd, 2015. The organization committee is the following : Erwan Faou, Benoît Grébert, Eric Paturel

Online material

Mini-courses and talks have been captured and are available online.

Presentation of the field

If normal forms were initially used in a finite dimensional setting, for a better understanding of the long time behavior of dynamical systems, their extension to partial differential equations, especially in the nonlinear case, have led to important progresses during this last decade. More than useful tools, they put in light some characteristic phenomena in complex situations where nonlinearity play a fondamental rôle. The aim of this summer school is to show their great adaptability in various fields (Hamiltonian PDEs, fluid mechanics, numerical analysis), and to explain how it works, in a manner accessible to starting researchers.
