Summer school on inverse problems and statistics in high dimension

Posted by Rebecca Martin on Thu, 26/03/2009 - 01:00

After the successful PASCAL workshop in 2005 on inverse problems in Toulouse (see http://idei.fr/doc/conf/wip/programme.pdf), we are pleased to announce a summer school on inverse problems and statistics in high dimension:

*Stats in the chateau*
http://www.hec.fr/statsinthechateau

The focus is less on learning and more on statistics and econometrics, but it could be interesting for some of you. Two members of the organizing committee (Sacha Tsybakov and myself) belong to PASCAL.

It will be held in a charming castle in the south of Paris, from August 31 to September 4, 2009.
