Graph limits and statistics

Workshop Theme

The opening workshop will be focused on merging ideas from combinatorics, probability and statistical theory with methodology, starting from the notion of graph limits and nonparametric statistical models. This will be the means to: 1) identify the methodological and theoretical challenges in establishing the foundations of networks; 2) highlight the state of the art in relevant branches of mathematics, including in-depth talks and overview presentations in the topics.

This workshop is supported in part by a contribution from the National Science Foundation, USA

Deadline for applications: 11 April 2016
