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!
Jesus De Loera, Despina Stasi, Paul Breiding and I organized a summer school `Randomness and Learning in Non-Linear Algebra’, at MPI Leipzig Germany during the week of July 1-5, 2019. Partially funded (junior participants' travel) by the NSF grant; see site for more information.
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).
