  • 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.

  • School - Flows and Limits in Kähler Geometry
    Apr 17, 2017 to Apr 21, 2017


    Nantes, from April 17th to April 21st

    Organization board: Sébastien Boucksom, Yann Rollin, Carl Tipler

    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.

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.
