Statistics of geometric features and new data types

Workshop Theme

Big Data practitioners are increasingly faced with new data types and the geometries they induce. This workshop will be an opportunity for practitioners to learn about the latest developments in these and other challenges, and for more mathematically-oriented scientists to discover the most important new data types that can shape their own research agendas.

Deadline for applications: 21 January 2018
