The Institute for Mathematical and Statistical Innovation (IMSI) in Chicago will host a long program in Fall 2023, Algebraic statistics and our changing world: New methods for new challenges.
Applications for research members will open in September 2022. Stay tuned for exciting news about our workshops, podcasts, and public talks!
This quarter-long program is coorganized with Mathias Drton (TU Munchen), Elizabeth Gross (UH Mānoa), Lek-Heng Lim (UofC), Elina Robeva (UBC), Jose Rodriguez (UW Madison), Piotr Zwiernik (U Toronto & Pompeu Fabra University), Bernd Sturmfels (MiS-MPI Leipzig & UC Berkeley).
See you at IMSI September 18 — December 15, 2023!
I will be a Program Committee member for the 48th International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation (ISSAC) 2023.
ISSAC 2023 will take place in Tromsø, Norway, in July 2023.
Greg Smith, Paul Breiding, and I are organizing a workshop on Random Algebraic Geometry at the Banff International Research Station (Alberta, Canada), April 16-21, 2023.
Aida Maraj and I are organizing a Special Session, Nonlinear Algebra with Applications to Statistics, at the AMS Central Sectional Meeting at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, March 26-27, 2022. The meeting was moved to online format via Zoom due to the Coronavirus.
Elizabeth Gross, Vishesh Karwa, and I organized the AS2020 - an international conference on Algebraic Statistics in Hawaii, summer 2020. However, due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, we have postponed the conference to May 2021. To keep the community connected, Hawaii hosted a few of the talks online in June 2020. Read more here.
Conference travel for junior researchers supported by NSF-DMS Grant 2004271. We expect to meet in 2022!
Alessandro Rinaldo (Carnegie Mellon statistics) and I organized a Workshop on Algebraic Statistics for Network Modeling at IIT. The workshop, which took place in Chicago on May 8-11, 2017, honored the legacy that Steve Fienberg left on the field of algebraic statistics for networks. Participation by invitation only.
Organizers: Caroline Uhler and Sonja Petrovic
Speakers: Venkat Chandrasekaran (Cal Tech), Elizabeth Gross (San Jose State), Elina Robeva (Berkeley / MIT), Henry Wynn (London School of Economics). Discussant: Steffen Lauritzen (University of Copenhagen).
The American Mathematical Society's Mathematical Research Communities program in 2016 included an MRC on Algebraic Statistics, June 12 – 18, 2016, Snowbird, Utah. There were 5 research groups, including the one on network modeling that I led.
MRC is a flagship training program by the American Mathematical Society.
IIT hosted the 2016 Spring Research Conference, May 25-27, 2016.
SRC is an annual conference sponsored by the American Statistical Association (ASA) Section on Physical and Engineering Sciences (SPES) and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS).
