    Applied Bayesian Statistics School - ABS24 : Bayesian Phylogenetics and Infectious Diseases

    Non-IBS Event

    Monday, August 26 - Friday, August 30, 2024

    We are glad to inform you that the next Applied Bayesian Statistics school - ABS24 will be held in the city of Como (Italy), along the Lake Como shoreline, on August 26-30, 2024.

    The school is organized by CNR IMATI (Institute for Applied Mathematics and Information Technologies at the National Research Council of Italy in Milano), in cooperation with Fondazione Alessandro Volta.


    The lecturer will be Prof. MARC SUCHARD (Department of Biostatistics, UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, USA), with the support of Filippo Monti (PhD student in Biostatistics, UCLA, USA).

    As in the past (since 2004), there will be a combination of theoretical and practical sessions, along with presentations by participants about their work (past, current and future) related to the topic of the school.

    OUTLINE: The aim of this course is to explore the core challenges of Bayesian inference of stochastic processes in modern biology in terms of data-scale, model-dimensionality and compute-complexity. Challenging and
    emerging statistical solutions will be illustrated through the analysis of biological sequences, such as genes and genomes. Molecular phylogenetics has become an essential analytical tool for understanding the complex patterns in which rapidly evolving pathogens propagate across and between countries, owing to the complex travel and transportation patterns evinced by modern economies, along with growing political factors such as increased global population and urbanization. 
    As an accessible course for all, a brief introduction of the underlying biology (for statistical researchers) and of modern Bayesian inference (for practicing biologists) will be also provided.
    Topics will cover probabilistic modeling techniques using both discrete- and continuous-valued stochastic processes including continuous-time Markov chains and Gaussian processes; large-scale data-integration approaches incorporating factors like human mobility and climate measurements; recursive computing and other mathematical tricks to evaluate seemingly intractable likelihoods; state-of-the-art sampling methods for high-dimensional models including Hamiltonian Monte Carlo and its more recent non-reversible extensions; delivering timely inference on advancing computing hardware like graphics processing units and (maybe even) quantum devices.

    Non-IBS Event

    Monday, September 2 - Friday, September 6, 2024

    International Conference on Trends and Perspectives in Linear Statistical Inference. Will be held in Poprad, Slovakia. The purpose of the meeting is to bring together researchers sharing an interest in a variety of aspects of statistics and its applications as well as matrix analysis and its applications to statistics, and offer them a possibility to discuss current developments in these subjects.

    GEOMED 2024

    Non-IBS Event

    Monday, September 9 - Wednesday, September 11, 2024

    GEOMED is a bi-annual, international, interdisciplinary conference on spatial statistics, geographical epidemiology and public health. The conference focuses both on the developments in methodology and the applications of methods for spatial and spatio-temporal data in public health. GEOMED 2024 is organized by the Data Science Institute of Hasselt University (Belgium). It will take place in Hasselt, a beautiful city in Belgium, from 9 until 11 September 2024.

    The selected key topics for this edition are: 
    - Geographical modeling of infectious diseases 
    - Geographical modeling of health in low-income countries 
    - Environmental epidemiology and climate change 

    Next to this, a range of topics will be represented. They include (but are not limited to): 
    - Geo-referenced health data 
    - Disease mapping 
    - Risk assessment for public health 
    - Computational methods for analysis of spatial and spatio-temporal data 
    - Visualization methods 
    - Geostatistical modeling 
    - Spatial and spatio-temporal health surveillance 
    - Novel methodology for spatial data 
    - Deep learning methods for spatial data analyses 
    - Cluster detection and epidemic outbreaks
