Stochastic approximation: methodology, theory and applications in statistics

Research workshop: 13-15 September 2010, Bristol, UK

There will be a workshop on stochastic approximation organised by members of the statistics group in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Bristol. The workshop is part of SuSTaIn: a programme funded by the EPSRC and the University of Bristol with the ambitious goal of strengthening the discipline of Statistics in the UK, by equipping it to face the challenges of future applications.

The aim of this workshop is to gather 20-25 world specialists on stochastic approximation and its applications, who might not have the opportunity to meet otherwise, in order to present and discuss recent methodological and theoretical developments in the area, as well as applications.

Deadline for registration: Friday 13 August 2010

Organising committee: Christophe Andrieu; Sean Collins; Ayalvadi Ganesh; David Leslie; Vlad Tadic; Stas Volkov; Azita Ghassemi.
